President Bush Says November Election Battle About Abortion, Judges
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- President Bush spoke to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday morning and laid out what the presidential election battle will look like this year. He portrayed the fight as one between a candidate who opposes abortion and one of two Democrats who support unlimited abortions at taxpayer expense.(emphasis added)
"On matters relating to America's moral compass, we have defended human life," President Bush explained. "There's another philosophy, and it's advanced by decent people who see the world differently."
"On the rights of the unborn -- the most vulnerable among us -- one side supports abortion on demand," the president said. "You and I believe in the worth of every human being, the matchless joy of adoption, and the right to life."
President Bush also said the election battle this year involves a fight over the kind of judges a president will put on the Supreme Court.
"On the federal judiciary, one side says we should confirm judges who believe in the 'living Constitution' -- which basically means they can make up laws as they go along," Bush said.
"I say we need judges who respect our values, do not follow the political winds and revere the plain meaning of our Constitution," Bush added. "We need more judges like John Roberts and Sam Alito."
Whatever the man's faults (and they are many), these 2 items - abortion and judges - are the primary reasons I voted for George W. Bush. And he has largely delivered on these issues.
