    That's very compassionate towards her parents. By the way, there are a lot of "creatures" in hospitals and hospices today whose heads are "full of Jello". Do you suggest we just terminate these "creatures" once and for all today?

    if mitt had waited until this election, it was his for the taking
    the only way hillary can win is if the republicans puts up for election their own version of dukakis, gore, and kerry. and if the GOP is foolish enough and goes too far right to find THE candidate, it will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory

    If anything, this incident will benefit Bush rather than hurt him, but it will most likely be irrelevant to those who would consider voting for Bush.
    here's where i trust the American public at large
    tell them the truth
    have a sound reason for your decision
    and they will give you a pass, even if they disagree
    for instance, if bill had come out and acknowledged he diddled with monica, we would have said 'bless his pussy chasing heart' and thought little of the good ole boy having a little fun. while monica was no prize, bill having to go home to hillary would explain a lot the motivation for his dalliances
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Only if he decides not to run. It may be a non-issue in the GOP primaries as people will be lock-step, but it will be a nasty can of worms in the general election should he get the nomination. Euthanasia v. Obamacare death panels would pull no punches in the end, especially after MSNBC already has been fixated with pushing the message that people should pull the plug on Granny this year.

    If people don't want to vote for Bush over this, then I'm sure Huckabee or Walker or Santorum will be happy to get their vote.
    I think that if you don't like Bush's involvement in that case, Huckabee or Santorum wouldn't exactly be your candidate either.

    Bush's only problem is his last name. Period, end of story.

    Exactly. I was being sarcastic but that doesn't always come across on internet posts.

    I don't think this is going to hurt Bush at all is what I was saying. If you are vehemently against what he did, you probably weren't going to vote for him anyway. And you won't vote for Santorum, Huckabee, Walker, etc.

But then her parents decided to put a stop to that and that is when I think they threatened to go to court and have him removed as the person who made the medical decisions about his wife.
    Her body was kept functioning for nearly EIGHT YEARS after she was declared brain dead. The cause was she had gone onto a hyper diet only drinking ice tea. It was ONLY after that nearly 8 years her husband asked life support be discontinued.

    At that point, Jeb Bush became a radical life-death control freak - and telling any lie to do so such as accusing her husband of causing her health collapse and of wanting life support ended to cover up the murder, though the cause of death had been known the entire time.

    Jeb Bush decided that he wasn't government, but dictator, defying courts and the legislature (both Republican) pursuing becoming the darling of the right-to-life crows and with Sean Hannity raging that her husband was trying to outright murder her. Bush also found a hack doctor who literally had never examined her declaring she wasn't brain dead, unlike the 8 experts who had examined her.

    Jeb Bush in this ran the family thru hell with a massive pack of lies and with non-stop attacks against her husband, this all then diverting for the corruptions of his past and his administration.

    Finally, 13 YEARS after she was declared brain dead were the tubes removed. An autopsy showed she essentially had no brain left and her bones basically dissolved away.

    I don't think it was really about that though. It was more about who gets to be the medical proxy of an adult woman - her husband or her parents? Personally I'd rather have even my ex-wife make that kind of decision than my mother. For all of her faults and all she's put me through I'd like to think that she'd put my wishes ahead of her own.

    Bush's involvement wasn't all that bad anyway. What I found laughable was when Sen. Bill Frist - a doctor - made a "diagnosis" based on years old videotape.

    I don't like his post calling her a "creature". She wasn't a creature.

    As a parent myself, I can fully understand how her parents felt. Not saying I'd do what they did, but I also don't agree that their opinions should be discounted completely.

    I would rather my parents make a medical decision on my behalf than my husband who I've been with since we were both 18.

    I'm not and never was convinced that Schiavo's husband really knew her wishes, and the quick way in which he moved on made me question him really having her long term best interest at heart.
