Republicans Respond to Evangelicals on Schiavo

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Christian evangelicals, a key component in President Bush's Republican Party, believe the case of brain-damaged Florida woman Terri Schiavo may help inject new life into their long campaign against abortion.

"The right-to-life issue has been with us for over 30 years but never has it dominated the news headlines day after day as it is doing now," said Louis Sheldon, chairman of the Traditional Values Coalition.

"This case has generated a kind of inspirational activism. It is giving revival and renewal to millions of people who feel strongly about the culture of life and the protection of life," he said.

Republican leaders and President Bush had little choice other than to respond to Christian evangelical demands on the Schiavo case or risk alienating a crucial part of their political base, political analysts said.

It's not just Bush's failure to generate any support for getting rid of social security, it's Bush's failure to generate any heat for anything.

The cabinet confirmations and the easy passage of the bankrtupcy bill were as much the result of Democratic complicity as Bush's political capital.

Apparently Robert Reich feels the same... 2nd term failure all the way...

I don't see this as Bush-generated, I don't think he personally cares. If the Florida 2000 'I won because I proposed privatization' story is true, then it's proof he's deeply delusional about his own appeal and political skills. Schiavo is too small for him. I think this comes from DeLay and the fundamentalists. They're not *always* in lockstep with the President.

crab, it small of Karl Rove all over, Bush's brain™.
