Snow waffles on stem cell "murder" remark

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Phew, close call. I was starting to think that Bush was allowing murder, outside of Iraq that is. Even his revision is lame and I'm still wondering why Bush is allowing the "destruction of human life" outside of Iraq, of course, where he's pretty comfortable with random killings, murder and gangland sytle executions since he sees things going so well there.

Only last Wednesday:

"The president believes strongly that for the purpose of research it's inappropriate for the federal government to finance something that many people consider murder. He's one of them," Snow said at the time.
And yesterday:
Snow said Monday that the president remains opposed to using federal funds for such research because it involves "a destruction of human life."

Snow's characterization became an issue on Sunday for White House chief of staff Josh Bolten, who struggled on NBC's "Meet the Press" to answer whether Bush agreed with his spokesman that destruction of unwanted fertilized embryos was tantamount to murder?

"The president thinks that that embryo, that fertilized embryo, is a human life that deserves protection," Bolten said. "I haven't spoken to him about the use of particular terminology," Bolten said.

Said Snow on Monday: "I overstepped my brief there, and so I created a little trouble for Josh Bolten in the interview. And I feel bad about it."
