Bush Vetoes Lifesaving Research Funding Bill in Secret

From CNN.com: Bush vetoes embryonic stem-cell bill
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush used his veto power Wednesday for the first time since taking office 5 1/2 years ago, saying that an embryonic stem-cell research bill "crossed a moral boundary."
I'd like to know what crosses more of a moral boundary: not funding research that could save thousands of lives and possibly cure horrible diseases, or saving clumps of cells that will be disposed of anyway?

Naturally, the pro-death, pro-hate, anti-choice culture fostered by the Bush-Leaguers and their Christofascist friends says it's more important to save the clumps. People aren't important unless they're not alive. They're especially unimportant if they're poor and/or brown-skinned. If Bunnypants gave two squirts of piss about life, he wouldn't be sending our citizens to die in Iraq, nor would he be supporting the killing of civilians for the actions of other people. "Life", to Bush and his ilk, means "white upper-class people, clumps of cells, and brain-dead people", and nothing more.

"This bill would support the taking of innocent human life in the hope of finding medical benefits for others," Bush said Wednesday afternoon. "It crosses a moral boundary that our decent society needs to respect. So I vetoed it."
And this right here is proof that Bunnypants knows shit-all about any of this, and he's just pandering to the anti-choice, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-life segments of his hatemonger base - they aren't alive, they aren't ever going to be, and you're just a filthy fucking LIAR.

Even worse, Bunnypants didn't make much out of vetoing the bill - he did so practically in secret. Why? Because he knows that this is going to alienate him even more from his party, which has many people who are actually in favor of funding the research, and from the country at large, of which 66% support stem cell research.

Quite frankly, it's garbage like this that's going to result in a massive backlash in the next two elections. People are sick of it. We're all sick of the lies, the spying, the death, the war, the hate, the heartlessness.

UPDATE, 9:30 PM: Hell, even the kids these days realize how wrong this guy is!
