Why GOP Picked George W. Bush to be Prez

At least that mystery is now solved. Only George W. Bush could be counted on to veto a bill to expand federal support for stem cell research after having started a war of global aggression which has killed 2,558 American soldiers, killed at least 100,000 Iraqis and is costing $10 million an hour to wage. And after having accomplished these crimes against humanity, only George W. Bush could be counted on to say without even a trace of embarrassment or irony: "This bill (the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act) would support the taking of innocent human life in the hope of finding medical benefits for others…it crosses a moral boundary that our decent society needs to respect. So I vetoed it." "If this bill were to become law, American taxpayers would, for the first time in our history, be compelled to fund the deliberate destruction of human embryos, and I'm not going to allow it." There are many politicians who have supported the war in Iraq and who are adamant pro-life conservative religious fanatics. But there are few, if any, who would be so crass and ignorant as to stand before the American people and make statements that imply that frozen embryos which are going to be destroyed have more value in every sense than a fully-grown American soldier. But the GOP found that one rare politician in the person of the favored son of the grossly insensitive and bloody-minded Barbara Bush. And having found him, the GOP made him president. When Bush vetoed the stem-cell bill, the president’s new press secretary Tony Snow said: “The simple answer is he thinks murder's wrong.” Snow should have added, “That is, George W. Bush thinks murder is wrong if the living thing is the size of a pin-head. Larger than that and all living things are fair game.”
