What Was Dubya Thinking?
I like to believe that I'm a tolerant individual. I believe I can accept that people might have different opinions from me and I still respect them, in spite of our differences. I honestly believe that I could have a spirited political discussion with just about anyone I know and walk away from it still friends. So what is it about our president then, that makes even my nose hairs curl in disbelief and my "Come Closer So I Can Slap You" tee shirt rattle the dresser drawer in a desperate plea to be released?
Let's recap for a minute:
Instead, W continues to court the narrow bloc of Christian evangelical voters who make up his most conservative base. How easy it is to placate one group when you don't have to look into the eyes of those you are sacrificing. Why must those who are already living be given short shrift while "the cells possibly forming persons to be" are revered as sacred? Do we lose that sacredness of life once we are born? Is it our lot to endlessly sacrifice the living to make way for the might-bes?
Was this really THAT important, Mr. President? Or was it just another Terri Schiavo moment, similar to the late-night, heroic flight back to Washington for a dramatic bill signing? You'll understand my suspicion, I'm sure. After all, the intended audience was exactly the same.
