Poor, poor, George W. Bush. He and his brother are having fun promoting the "right to life" (one anti-abortion bill and one forced-feeding-for-vegetative patients bill), just not for American soldiers or foreigners.
The last few days have been rich in attacks on our President...just scroll down and enjoy the lambasting from:
Senator Robert Byrd (natch):
Senate Floor Remarks
