Jeb to Seek Custody
The Shiavo family lost two more rounds to the judicial branch today. To hear Terri’s mother beg for mercy from the court was as heart breaking as it was insane. Now, Jeb Bush may seek state custody of Terri Shiavo. If he does act before she dies, I believe it will be because he thinks it the right thing to do rather than because of selfish reasons. But, Jeb could have a really great political gain for himself if he acted to stop the killing of Terri Shiavo. Having her die on his watch does nothing to help his future in politics. I do hope he acts… before it is too late. God help that suffering family!
Update: (Thursday) Ann Coulter’s column continues on this theme:
President Andrew Jackson is supposed to have said of a Supreme Court ruling he opposed: “Well, John Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it.” The court’s ruling was ignored. And yet, somehow, the republic survived.
If Gov. Jeb Bush doesn’t say something similar to the Florida courts that have ordered Terri Schiavo to die, he’ll be the second Republican governor disgraced by the illiterate ramblings of a state judiciary. Gov. Mitt Romney will never recover from his acquiescence to the Massachusetts Supreme Court’s miraculous discovery of a right to gay marriage. Neither will Gov. Bush if he doesn’t stop the torture and murder of Terri Schiavo.
