Just as he said he would, President Bush vetoed H.R. 810, “The Stem Cell Research Enhancement Bill.” It was his first use of veto power in the history of his presidency, and I for one would like to congratulate him on his choice of bills. In his statement he spoke of not crossing a “moral line,” saying he just couldn’t endorse a bill that would “support the taking of innocent human life.”
If you ask me, this is just more proof — as if we needed it — that President Bush is the best President this nation has had since Reagan. Here is a man who takes the moral high ground. Here is a man who, in the history of his presidency, has not once supported an act that would take an innocent human life, foreign or domestic, and his decision today maintains that clean record.
