    My wife just shrieked in outrage from the kitchen , She heard an Edwards soundbite saying that Chris Reeves would be alive today if Bush hadn't stopped stem cell research.

    The uncanny coincidence of Reeves passing away days after he is invoked by his " friend " Kerry in the debate makes me wonder if the piece of shite knew Reeves was on his deathbed. That is not how friends behave.

    Damn, fubar - I was thinking the same thing! I guess one should ask himself, "Would Kerry stoop that low to get a vote?"

    I leave it to the reader to answer that one for himself.

    I haven't heard that soundbite and my guess is Edwards either didn't say it or it was taken out of context. Stem cell research had nothing to do with what killed Christopher Reeve. In 1986, my father was paralyzed from the chest down in a bicycle accident. He has since resumed working full time helping other people, and especially young people, with disabilities fully integrate into society. My father, and our family for that matter, has lost many friends to similar complications of paralysis.

    If you believe for one second that John Kerry knew that Christopher Reeve was on his deathbed when he made that comment in the debate you are out of your mind. For one thing, Reeve didn't even go into the hospital until Saturday after he had the initial heart attack.

    Have a little more respect for a man that worked tirelessly to help find a cure for paralysis. He could have simply curled up and quit living. He didn't. He fought, he spoke, he gave, and he continued to create memorable movies and television.

    Post a link to footage of ANY and I mean ANY Democrat using Christopher Reeve's death for political gain. And no, saying we remember Christopher Reeve and will carry on the fight for stem cell research in his memory is not using his death for political gain, it is doing what Mr. Reeve would have wanted.

    I was thinking on the way home from work today aboutthis. I KNEW it would be a matter of time befree someone tried to blame Bush. :bang3: Let's not forget,they do have stem cells to work with now. It is not as if Bush has made a law against using them alltogether. They may not have found a cure or help for him in his lifetime. My stepdad has MS and isn't real hot on the idea of stem cell research from embryo's. Why can't they do lots of research from the ones they have? ANyway,any politician that would dare even poltisize this is a scumbag,piece of crap.

    Reeve had been feeling lousy for days before he died, unable to shake a stubborn, dangerous infection from something akin to bedsores. So, he didn't just die out of the blue;it may very well turn out that the infection was a causitive factor.

    You can't understand why people think John Kerry a heartless opportunist? This is the man who believes that life begins at conception, but if the unborn get between him and a vote - screw 'em! He either owns an SUV or he doesn't, depending on whether he's addressing the UAW or Greenpeace. He's either Gandhi or John Wayne, as the winds of political expediency dictate. Do you really think him incapable of hovering over Christopher Reeve's sickbed like a vulture? I don't.

    I must add that it is disingenuous - not to say typical - of you to imply that anyone on this board has shown disrespect to Christopher Reeve.

    Is she sure it was Edwards? I can see a freak like Al Franken or Michael Moore saying something like that, but I would think Edwards would have a little more sense than that.
