Finally, there is an issue that demands the unvarnished ignorance of George Bush. Faux President Bush was allowed to issue the first veto of his five-year-old administration yesterday, rejecting Congress's bid to lift funding restrictions on human embryonic stem cell research because as Karl Rove put it “If anybody is going to look like an asshole on this issue it may as well be the fuckin’ chimp. This is the one issue besides school prayer and the ten commandments in toilet stalls where that little shit---Bush’s word---sounds convincing.”
At a White House ceremony where he was joined by children produced from what he called the “family values way, adopted frozen embryos where no fucking was involved,” Bush said taxpayers should not support research on surplus embryos at fertility clinics, even if they offer possible medical breakthroughs and are slated for disposal. “Taxpayers should concentrate on subsidizing the rich through my tax breaks, not helping para-fucking-plegics who turned over their fuckin’ SUV or some such shit,” Bush added.
The vetoed bill "would support the taking of innocent human life in the hope of finding medical benefits for others," the president said, as babies died in Iraq and Lebanon. "I mean let’s face it folks, I support whole heartedly the taking of human life. Stampede right over them fuckin’ embryossss for a barrel of fuckin’ oil. But this testing crosses a moral boundary and I have no intention of doing anything moral. Shit if I did something moral I might fold up like a card table and die. There are boundaries are decent society needs to respect. And anybody with a brain the size of an embryo knows that don’t mean me." Each child on the stage, he said, "began his or her life as a frozen embryo that was created for in vitro fertilization but remained unused after the fertility treatments were complete. . . . These boys and girls are not spare parts until they reach military age. Then its fuckin' prosthetics heaven."
Within hours of Bush's announcement, the House, as expected, fell short in a bid to override the veto, extinguishing the issue as a legislative matter this year but not as a political matter. Democrats said voters will penalize GOP candidates for the demise of a popular measure, and predicted the issue could trigger the defeat of Bush allies such as Sen. James M. Talent, who faces a tough reelection battle in Missouri.
"Those families who wake up every morning to face another day with a deadly disease or a disability will not forget this decision by the president to stand in the way of sound science and medical research," said Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.). “Thank the fuckin' Lord, we have the electoral process and criminal sanctions against righteous anger to distract them from seeking justice
Some conservatives also criticized the veto. "I am pro-life except where a good execution of an innocent person is involved, but for political reasons and not to look the science fool I disagree with the president's decision," said Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (Tenn.), a heart surgeon who is weighing a 2008 presidential run. "Not to equivocate, given the potential of this research and the limitations of the existing [human embryonic stem cell] lines eligible for federally funded research, I think additional lines should be made available."
Also, objecting to Bush’s veto, ‘Whorin’ Orrin ‘The Snatch’ Hatch said, “Right to life means you have to consider the living too” revealing, if you take his meaning, that he does not consider human embryos to be alive. When questioned about the apparent faux pas by this journalist Hatch added, “You know Babs. I’d really like to see everything and everyone on this planet dead. That’s why my stance on the environment and the Middle East.”
The House and Senate passed the bill by comfortable margins but not with the two-thirds majorities required to override a veto. The House voted 235 to 193 yesterday to override Bush, falling short of the threshold and negating the need for a Senate override attempt.
Bush did sign a bill, unanimously passed this week by the House and Senate, to ban the creation of human fetuses for the sole purpose of harvesting organs. “We got enough organs to harvest from Brazilian orphans,” Bush said. “And its expensive, so a bunch of nobodies can’t just go and get a new fuckin’ liver. You gotta be rich. And if those shits in Congress don’t pass my tax cuts for the rich, how are them rich folks gonna be able to buy all the organs they need.”
But the House thwarted prompt passage of another bill he had hoped to sign yesterday. It would have promoted efforts to conduct stem cell research without destroying human embryos just deforming them so that fertilization would be out of the question except for Halloween and bad B Horror Movies. Bush was told to call it "an important piece of legislation" while Rove and White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten hid behind the Oval Office drapes laughing. Several Democrats called it a political fig leaf intended to distract attention from his veto of the long-debated funding measure for embryonic stem cells. Bush responded “I resent the implication that any legislation I propose is merely a fig leaf there to wipe my ass with.”
Bush has threatened vetoes on numerous issues over the years, but he and the Republican-controlled Congress had always worked out their differences. On stem cells, however, the president was paid to draw a sharp line during his first nationally televised address, on Aug. 9, 2001, banning government funding for research using human embryonic stem cell colonies created after that date.
Over the next five years, public sentiment increasingly moved away from Bush’s ignorance in the only way it knows how, as celebrities such as Nancy Reagan and Christopher Reeve touted the potential that embryonic stem cells offer in treating Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, diabetes, spinal cord injuries and other conditions. Unlike "adult" stem cells, embryonic cells can replicate themselves and turn into almost any human tissue.
Officials say that about 400,000 frozen embryos are stored at U.S. fertility clinics. The vast majority await disposal because the couples that produced them have completed their pursuit of children and do not want another person to raise their biological child. Bush praised those who "adopt" such embryos against the will of their donors, implant them in a woman's womb and bring them to term if those fetuses grow up white and Christian.
But others who know a little bit about it and aren’t shilling for their handlers said there will be few such adoptions because most couples seeking a child through in vitro fertilization want a genetic connection to that child. "Even with federal funding available to encourage adoption, the number is 128, which makes it conclusive that these 400,000 embryos will either be used for scientific research or thrown away," Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.), a proponent of the bill, said this week.
“Throwing the embryos away is more in concert with this administration's policies,” chimed in Dick Cheney. “Now, if the scientific community wants to give me a chunk of change for a little policy about face, I think I might be persuaded to drop the evangelical sham.”
Bush and his allies say that frozen embryos are tantamount to humans because if you count them Bush scores higher on verbal skills since embryos “ain’t got none.” “Every body needs the curve every once in a while,” Bush added. They are no more appropriate for medical research than are death row inmates and just an innocent. "If this bill were to become law," Bush said yesterday, "American taxpayers would for the first time in our history be compelled to fund the deliberate destruction of human embryos outside of war and the draconian social policies of the Republicans that destroy embryos and their mothers at a rate commensurate with the greed of the kleptocratic class."
Others reject that analysis, saying it would make killers of every couple that produces an unused embryo and every employee and official who allows fertility clinics to produce and store such embryos.
"If that's murder, how come the president allows that to continue?" asked Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa). "Where is his outrage?" Harkin called the veto "a shameful display of cruelty, hypocrisy and ignorance."
In response, Bush vowed to round up every couple that produces an unused embryo, and every employee and official who allows fertility clinics to produce and store such embryos as soon as he locks up the 11 million illegal aliens digging the footing to every fuckin’ building in the this god-forsaken country as we speak.
