Bush threatens veto of hate crimes bill

Once again demonstrating his party's contempt for gay Americans, the president issued a veto threat yesterday. In what would only be the third veto in his adminstration - which tells you how much the president and his base hate gay people - the White House issued a statement that the president would veto a hate crimes bill approved by the House, unless the provisions extending protection to gays and lesbians are removed.

Democrats have been trying to move a bill like this through Congress since the early 90s. They may have to wait until a more enlightened American is in the White House.



So, after years and years without a single no vote, Bush's first three vetoes (potentially) are on issues with wide public support: 1. Expanded federal funding of stem cell research; 2. Iraq War spending bill with timelines for troop withdrawal; 3. Expanded hate crimes prtection and flexibilty of federal agencies to investigate.

Why does Bush hate the American people?

This is just my personal theory, but I think it's because he was raised in a world of privilege, never had to really work a day in his life, and never faced any real consequences for his actions - and still doesn't. He doesn't understand what it's like to a be a regular American - so he has nothing but contempt for those of us who are.
