Bush is NOT Pro-Life and Neither Are You.

I may be short, but I'm not short enough on functioning brain cells to believe for a second that President Bush actually Pro-Life. Saying that Bush is Pro Life is like saying that Michael Jackson is trying to stop child sex abuse and that oil companies are trying to save the American people money on energy costs.

While in Wichita, Kansas this last weekend, I had a brief and rather intense discussion with a person who was wearing a Pro Bush/Pro Life t-shirt. I asked the lady if the shirt was supposed to be sarcastic, since Bush had executed more people while Governor of Texas than any other Governor in US history since the death penalty was re-legalized in 1977. She pointed out that President Bush is against abortion, which makes him Pro Life.

I asked her why he hadn't banned abortions, if he is against them, and she said that it was because the Democrats had wasted so much time blocking his Social Security reforms, that he didn't have time to ban abortion. I guess with all the war-mongering and uncontrolled spending, Bush hasn't exactly had time to address this critical issue. This is the kind of logic that people used to re-elect Bush as President. Sickening isn't it?

The truth is that President Bush is not Pro Life, and the woman I ran into in Wichita is not the only person that feels that because the President uses phrases like "sanctity of life" and "culture of life", we can all overlook his military decisions that have killed thousands of innocent people and his record on the death penalty as Governor of Texas. We all know that President Clinton was Pro Intern, Reagan was Pro Military Spending, and President Grover Cleveland was Pro All-you-can-eat Mongolian B-B-Q. Those are pretty obvious. How anyone can look at President Bush and say "This guy is all about saving lives." reaches far beyond the capability of my understanding.
