Bush tells abortion foes, 'We will prevail'
33 years after Roe v. Wade ruling, abortion debate continues
SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- President Bush told abortion opponents Monday that they are pursuing "a noble cause" and making a real difference in the campaign to recruit more Americans to stand on their side.
While it is of course totally unsurprising that Bush feels this way, I am beyond shocked that he would actually say it out loud and in public. What is even more terrifying is the prospect that people will accept his words unchallenged.
If Alito sails through his confirmation hearings now, like it certainly appears he will, it's going to send one hell of a message.
Alternately, this could be the smoking gun the Dems need to justify a filibuster.
Yeah, right. And maybe I'm a Chinese fighter pilot.
