THE VILLAGES, Fla. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson said Thursday he doesn’t know enough about efforts by President Bush and Congress to keep Terri Schiavo alive to have an opinion on the right-to-die case that stirred national debate.
Thompson was asked in an interview for Bay News 9’s “Political Connections” program if he thought Congress’ intervention to save the life of the brain-dead woman two years ago was appropriate.
“I can’t pass judgment on it. I know that good people were doing what they thought was best,” Thompson said. “That’s going back in history. I don’t remember the details of it.” (source)
In other words, the Republican Party has still only managed to squeeze out one Presidential contender who isn’t a low-grade moron or a liar — Ron Paul.
