BUSH ABOUT TO MAKE A HUGE DOMESTIC BLUNDER ON CHILDREN'S HEALTH CARE
Now he is about to make a huge domestic blunder by vetoing the SCHIP (State Childrens Health Plan) renewal legislation.
This is a political nightmare for "W"-the perfect storm. The average American, who doesn't have time or energy to dig into the SCHIP legislative details would see "W" as a cruel and venal person to even imagine not providing health care to US children.
I CHALLENGE ALL AMERICANS- WHAT COULD MORE EMOTIONAL THAN THAT TOPIC?
Yet Bush in his typical self destructive stubborn style digs in his heels on any legislation that smacks of more government involvement in health care. This -despite the embarrassment of our failed US system against our peer nations.
He loses either way if he vetoes because the nation is ready for more government in health care.
What better place to start than with our children?
The DEMS will destroy "W" on this veto! And many members of his own party are defecting.This president knows no bounds in political self-destructiveness.

As for me, If you have been reading this blog I am for prevention (individual AND institutional) as the only way out of this whole health care mess in this country and abroad.
