Bush’s Rhetoric Fails Litmus Test

President Bush on Thursday, in response to Terri Schiavo’s death, said the following:

I urge all those who honor Terri Schiavo to continue to work to build a culture of life, where all Americans are welcomed and valued and protected, especially those who live at the mercy of others. The essence of civilization is that the strong have a duty to protect the weak.

Bush’s opponents may argue that this exactly the opposite of what his administration has done over the past four years. Single mothers, gays, and the working poor have taken severe hits by Bush’s policies. Children may have suffered the worst.

Err on the side of life? Ironic considering the number of suspicious circumstances surrounding death row cases in Texas under Bush’s watch.
