Democrat John Kerry (news - web sites), backed by 48 Nobel Prize winners, on Monday criticized President Bush (news - web sites) for allowing ideology rather than facts determine science policies and repeated his pledge to overturn the ban on federal funding of research on new stem cell lines.Those who oppose this proposal would never ever vote for Kerry anyway. So why not use this issue to point out that Junior is a religio-wacko loon, not to mention that it is simply sound policy.
"We need a president who believes in science again in America," Kerry said. "We need to be prepared, and one of the first things that I will do as president by executive order immediately is reverse the gag rule and also move America forward to do stem cell research and begin to find the cures we need."
In a letter endorsing Kerry, 48 scientists who have won the Nobel Prize said the Bush administration is undermining the nation's future by impeding medical advances, turning away scientific talent with its immigration practices and ignoring scientific consensus on global warning and other critical issues.
"Unlike previous administrations, Republican and Democratic alike, the Bush administration has ignored unbiased scientific advice in the policy-making that is so important to our collective welfare," their letter stated.
Dr. Burton Richter, the 1976 Nobel laureate in physics, said it was unusual for such a large number of Nobel winners to endorse a particular political candidate.
“There’s a lot of money to pay for this that doesn’t have to be U.S. taxpayer money, and it starts with the assets of the Iraqi people…and on a rough recollection, the oil revenues of that country could bring between $50 and $100 billion over the course of the next two or three years…We’re dealing with a country that can really finance its own reconstruction, and relatively soon.” -Paul Wolfowitz
