Now what does this all mean about the anointed candidates? The mantra of the far left purports that most Americans wanted innocent Terri to suffer the death she received and that those were bad who thought an innocent should be helped. We have seen this mantra applied time and again in thinly veiled phrases so we don't make this stuff up.
Now how does this comport with elite candidates saying the very same thing? Say it ain't so, candidates! Tell Bobby Schindler you were mistaken and didn't really want his sister killed!
WASHINGTON, Oct. 25 (UPI) -- Former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson, R-Tenn., joined other GOP front-runners this week in saying Congress should have stayed out of the case of Terri Schiavo.
Thompson had already left the Senate in 2005 when many Republicans voted to get the case into federal courts. Florida courts had ruled that Schiavo's husband had the right to have her feeding tube removed, 15 years after she lapsed into an apparent vegetative state.
While a number of Republican politicians and pundits embraced the cause of Schiavo's parents and siblings at the time, most have moved away from the case, The Boston Globe reported. Few office-seekers or attendees at the "Values Voters" Summit in Washington last weekend mentioned Schiavo, even though her brother, Bobby Schindler, was there.
Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kansas, who backed the Schindlers in 2005 and continues to support their position, ended his presidential campaign last week.
U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., voted with other Republicans on the case in 2005 but started backing away from that position quickly and now says it should have been a state matter. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani say they agree.
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- With Fred Thompson becoming the latest Republican presidential candidate to say that the federal and state government shouldn't have been involved in trying to save Terri Schiavo's life, her brother says he wants to talk with the GOP hopefuls.
He says they would be more likely to support the actions Congress and the Florida legislature took to try to help his family prevent her former husband from subjecting her to a painful euthanasia death if they knew more about her case.
"I want to personally talk with them about Terri's case," Bobby Schindler told the Boston Globe. "They need to be fully informed. There obviously exists a lot of confusion about my sister's situation."
Schindler told the newspaper that he plans to write each candidate a letter about Terri's circumstances and the painful 13-day starvation and dehydration death her former husband Michael made her endure.................
Who would have thunk our leaders would discriminate against disabled people but they blatantly are doing so. What about Mitt? His wife has MS.
He's pro-courts but says he's against judical activism. How can he be on both sides? This lawyer should NEVER be president or vice president. NEVER. He doesn't appear to have strong convictions.
Besides, killing Terri set back the women's movement, the civil rights movement and disability rights back about fifty years if not longer.
