Ugh. I hate this

Ugh. I hate this post already because I know I will be misunderstood.

I like Jeb Bush and I like George Bush, no they're not perfect. They're human, just like the rest of us. But some Terri supporters have decided to deride and insult the governor of Florida and the president of the United States for not marching in there and taking Terri away from the murderers. I understand the frustration, I truly do.

I even think that DCF, a state agency, most likely has the authority to do such a thing despite a court order. In fact they tried to do it, until they were turned away by the local police. I agree with the decision not to act in order to maintain peace and civilty in that community although I think it would be good to remind the Pinellas Park police that their job is to protect lives not pieces of paper.

Okay, so far so good, right?

Here is where I disagree with you "blamers" of the Bushes. (And NO, I am not linking to your rhetoric!) It is not their fault. They feel they have done all they could. They have alienated many people and they have fought hard.

Jeb Bush especially deserves credit.

Do you not realize that Terri would already be dead if Jeb Bush had not signed into legislation "Terri's Law'", which the Florida Supreme Court struck down? Jeb Bush has done more than any blogger or commentor anywhere to help Terri, myself included. You want to demonize someone who has worked so hard and is feeling just as defeated as you are?

Good plan, strike against the ones who agree with you.

Yeah, tell me how that works out for you.
