Priorities

Supporters Praise Bush's Swift Return to Washington

WASHINGTON, March 20 - For days, President Bush kept his public distance from the Terri Schiavo case and let his spokesman deliver mild statements suggesting that the president did not want Ms. Schiavo, who has severe brain damage, to die. But on Saturday night, when Mr. Bush made the rare decision to interrupt his Texas vacation and rush back to Washington to be in place to sign a bill that could restore Ms. Schiavo's feeding tube, the White House said that the issue had become one of "defending life," and that time was of the essence.
Let's remember that this same President didn't find it important enough to leave his vacation when warned that "Bin Laden determined to strike in US."

Wow - good point! Shows where our Dear Leader's priorities are. The whole Shiavo thing makes me ill - nothing but posturing for the fundie/anti-choice crowd.
