COULD GOVERNOR JEB BUSH DO MORE?

In this WorldNetDaily piece, Panama City, FL radio talk show host Doc Washburn argues that Florida governor Jeb Bush could be doing more by way of directly intervening in the Terri Schiavo controversy. The essence of Washburn's case is the distinction between the governor's reluctance to wade into a civil matter versus what Washburn maintains Mr. Bush is duty-bound to do under the state's constitution -- namely, to call for a criminal investigation into what caused Terri Schiavo's brain damage due to oxygen starvation back in 1990.

Doc Washburn is anything but optimistic that Jeb Bush will rethink his position:

Now that the courts have struck down "Terri's Law," don't be surprised if Jeb behaves as if the constitution he swore to uphold is still not relevant to Terri Schiavo. Don't be surprised if he allows her husband to slowly starve and dehydrate her to death.
