yeah... i don't really like kids either

So this bi-partisan resolution that is apparently polling at 91% approval among the American public will be vetoed by Bush if it passes:

sorry, your child isn't worth 61 cents to me

Bush doesn't want a 61 cent Federal tax added on to cigarette purchases (with the revenue going towards health insurance for the 9 million uninsured children in the US) b/c he's "philisophically" opposed to it. Brilliant. For a nation who had to have the title of a Harry Potter movie altered from "The Philosopher's Stone" to "The Sorcerer's Stone" because people didn't know what a philosopher was, this is basically a perfect strategy to completely mystify the public and quell any protest.

Why do I continue to be shocked by the things this man does?

And half of all kids in the US who qualify for and need food stamps don't get them. Hott. Lets fight obesity by straight up deprivation!
