CNN: Bush vetoes embryonic stem cell research
In news that will shock many George W. Bush seems to realize that he has the power to veto bills from Congress. Apparently Bush isn't just a rubber stamp for Congress. It is unfortunate that he hasn't discovered this power earlier in that judicious use of the power could have slowed the growth of the national deficit. Furthermore, Bush's statement that, "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," is completely bogus. There have been new procedures that can generate embroyonic stem cells without destroying embroyos formonths now.
Bush is showing himself as either ignorant or arrogant. Somehow I doubt that this measure is going to aid the GOP in this years' election.
