What Do We Make of Bush's Veto?
Here are a scattering of responses to President Bush's veto of the stem-cell research bill. First, some letters to the editor of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Next, The Washington Post quotes Representative Diana DeGette (D-Colo), co-sponsor of HR810, who said "cold, calculated, cynical political gain" motivated Bush to pen the first veto of his presidency. DeGette also said, "The veto has backfired already, putting the spotlight on his stubborn resistance to facts." (For more on Bush's resistance to and avoidance of facts, see today's post entitled "Where's the Outrage?")
In Canada, The Toronto Star published this letter, while across the Atlantic, Guardian Unlimited prints Sideny Blumenthal's thoughtful commentary, complete with additional comments by readers (always interesting to see how folks in England view our political sagas). In USA Today, Richard Benedetto posits that the stem-cell issue won't be a "make it or break it" issue in the fall elections, but Newsweek's Eleanor Clift begs to differ.
And so it goes...from Australia to China, everybody's got an opinion. What's yours?
