President Bush suggested Wednesday that he and Congress had done their best to help Terri Schiavo's parents prolong her life, and the White House said it has no further legal options.Translation: "First we tried ignoring it, but the fundamentialists started screaming at us. So we stuck our noses into it, and the non-fundamentalist conservatives started beating us up for practicing Big Goverment intervention into a state case. And then, to top it all off, the press actually had the nerve to tell the truth about how unpopular it was with just about everybody. And then they actually pointed mentioned that we were for it in Texas - well, when the sick person had no money, anyway. So, until Karl Rove tells us what our opinion should be, we'll just pretend that we have nothing to do with it, and hope that nobody notices."
"We felt like the actions taken with Congress was the best course of action," Bush said.
White House spokesman Scott McClellan later said, "There really are not other legal options available to us." - AP
