Bush Set to Lose Veto Virginity

Drudge is reporting Karl Rove as saying that President Bush would use his first ever veto to abort (if you will) legislation to expand federal funding for stem-cell research.

In his nearly six years in office, Bush has steadfastly refused to reign in a Congress intent on draining the public coffers with a profligacy truly unbefitting the name "conservative", unless, of course, that term has ceased to represent an economic philosophy and is now simply code for draconian theological social engineering.

If Bush chooses to forgo his Savin' It membership to go all the way to stop stem-cell research, there can be little doubt as to the definition of conservatism he's laboring under. Not to mention that hampering promising research to cure Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, paralysis and a host of other cruel afflictions to placate his base of faithful flat-earthers defies any definition of "compassionate" I've ever seen.
