2. Because as I was read in a LTTE in USA Today, 'let's not
forget that these people signed up for it".

5. No they don't care about Terri but they like energizing their
fundie supporters. I just think it got beyond them-more than 80% are repulsed by their heavy-handed interference. Might have started as diversion, but it's biting 'em in the ass big time.

6. Free Republic Opinion Poll

How has Governor Bush's failure to defy Judge Greer and not have DCF take Terri Schiavo into protective custody affected your view of the Governor?

No change in respect, but he should have defied Greer.
27.7%


I have lost a great deal of respect for him. Judges need to be reigned in. This was a good opportunity to do so.
27.1%



I would have lost a great deal of respect if he did defy the judge. Judicial decisions should not be defied by the Executive Branch. To do so would violate the "separation of powers" and risk a Constitutional crisis.
14.5%


No change in respect, but he did right by not defying Greer.
12.7%


I have lost some respect.

Pass
4.9%


I would have lost some respect for him if he did defy the judge.

Undecided

7. None of those other issues are going away, and
the abuse of power by Republicans who interfered with a civil case should be discussed.
