Only 25 percent of Americans approve of Bush

Okay, I didn't actually read that anywhere.

I'm predicting how Americans will respond to geedubya's hypocritical first use of a veto to protect us from immorality by devastating the hope of millions of Americans who live with disabilities that stem cell research might cure, and the tens of millions of Americans who love those people with disabilities.

Hey ... if embryonic stem cells are so precious, why not allow the 200,000-plus frozen embryos to develop into human beings instead of leaving them in deep freeze where they'll eventually be sold or thrown away?

And how does a petrie dish of cells have more value than a functioning human being left to suffer -- a living human being with a family and friends, a history, stories, memories, and a contribution to the human experience?

Oh ... "federally"-funded research on stem cells is immoral said the preznit. Why not ban all private research as well then -- or is it different when a profit can be made from immoral activities?

Private donations worth tens of millions of dollars have filled the gap to some extent, though scientists say the federal government would be a larger and steadier source of money.

What an F.Y.F.F. idiot!!! Who actually wants to admit that they voted for this freak!

And hey Louisiana: Guess which U.S. Senator from Louisiana counted among those who voted against overturning Bush's ban on federally-funded stem cell research?

That's right, Vitty-cent "Davey come lately" ... well, maybe not lately, unless he got himself a new hooker. But I wonder how many sperm Davey killed while entertaining himself with call girls before he made this "moral" choice.

Sadly, if Vitter and three other Senators had voted differently, millions of Americans would have hope of finding a cure to some of the most tragic diseases.

It's unbelievably astonishing how much the fortune of the United States has changed, and how much despair has been created, in just five short years since George W. Bush was elected.

And I haven't even touched on the Israeli-Hezbollah conflict, Iraq, North Korea, Iran, the national debt, FEMA, torture, the Corps of Engineers ...

916 days to go (for those who are counting). We can turn the tide this fall by giving Democrats a majority in both houses of Congress.

I never thought anyone who held elected office -ever- would make me yearn for the days of Bush I and Reagan. I never thought I would yearn for the Congress of 1994, which, through all their many, many faults, was still light years ahead of this one (IMHO). At least back then, we knew there were -some- adults in the room.

It's unbelievable there are still that many dumb people!

Very well put. I'm a N.O. native who moved for job reasons to Europe several months after Katrina. I'm often asked very compassionate questions about N.O. & the state it's in. Sometimes the subject of Bush comes up if I've befriended the person I'm speaking with. People here tend to be polite & perhaps reluctant to bring up the so called leader in the White House. I miss a lot about my beloved hometown. I do not miss the backward views of those who support the GOP & the Democrats who are non progressive, though. I fear that far too many things like the arrests of the Memorial health care providers serve only to distract from the very deep seated problems in La. One would think that residents would be more like the author & wake up & smell the coffee yet I fear that too many are happy to exist in a so called faith based life rather than a reality based one. No place is perfect, I am aware. I love you, N.O. Thank you to all the bloggers who help keep me informed of the hard work that is being done to make my real home a better place.

Geez, you are so right! You would think that with people like Nancy Reagan supporting this measure that he would have a little compassion, but I don't believe compassion is found in puppets...well, we can only hope that if one of his family members develops a debilitating disease he will change his mind.

Thanks for the heartfelt feedback anonymous. I just wrote another post that you might find encouraging.

Vicki, I almost went there with the debilitating disease curse, but wouldn't it be ironic justice!

Nutty stuff, indeed. At least the research has not been made illegal and that is the most important thing, because it means we still have a very strong push to do the reserach and it is continuing. (Disclaimer: Being the token libertarian here I strongly advocate that folks contribute money to continue these important research lines and we've been seeing some great stuff coming from those private researchers, but I'm not really all that fond of federal spending on it anyway so while I strongly disagree with King Georgie's so-called reasoning for his first ever veto I can't say that I'm nearly as upset about the fiscal responsivensess of the action.)

The hypocrite did it only for the upcoming votes. "Honey, the Iraq war may be blowing up in our faces, but our president stopped immorality that may have helped cure debilitating diseases."

Well said.

Apparently, human life is only sacred to the GOP in a petri dish. Existing human life, living in say... Iraq or Lehanon, is totally expendable.
