Tell me this doesn't look like a drama to extract more power for the Bushes ?
Alan Keyes: Why Jeb Bush has the power to act now
Hannity Coulter et all...
On Blood Sport Hunter says :
This is a decision on the part of producers to willfully bend the lines in a manner that promotes sensationalism and potential violence, by intentionally tossing known-false information into a wire-taut public conflict to enhance the "ratings value".
But what if violence against Michael isn't Jeb's ultimate goal ?
What if this neocon is right and this is a constitutional battle between the Executive and the Legislative being waged right before our eyes, in a very biased truth-avoiding media ?
Okay, it has finally come down to the Constitutional Battle that I have been saying was coming for some time. After months of fighting things in the courts.. and trying to get the legislature involved .., (Terri Schiavo's family) has finally realized that the Executive Branch.. is their only hope
After the federal panel's decision Friday night, the Schindlers appealed to Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to intervene, calling what happened "judicial homicide." .. "He has to come up to the plate."
Of course, the only action left to Governor Bush would be to refuse to enforce the court's order, and to send in state police or the national guard to forcibly reinsert the feeding tube. This is one of the worst possible images in a democracy - a single man exerting his will over the courts - and would effectively end Bush's political career. [would it ? -- law] No national office would be possible after this, and it is certain that the courts would call for his arrest and the legislature would recieve pressure to impeach him
As predicted, this case is no longer about the life of one woman, or about the contrast between parental rights and marital rights, or even over existing Florida law. It is a power-struggle between the courts and the executive
Who do you think it's going to win ?
State rights and small governement GOPpies are protesting meekly and may throw a tantrum, but will come "back to the reservation" eventually. They are too giddy with power and too greedy for "tax reform" not to. Just like Pat Buchannan who spent 4 years screaming against Bush and campaigned for him at the last minute, most of them will throw away their libertarian principles at the altar of King George
And thus endeth the lesson in democracy, American-style
Most of the voters in my poll disagree, so maybe I should lay off the caffeine... What do you think ?
