Why is Bush downplaying the trumpet calls for a partial birth abortion ban?

Because the surest way to ignite the spirit of jihad in the dying embers of the Abortion Party is to launch a full frontal assault on the sacrament of abortion.

All you Eeyores. Try to bridle your despair at least till the Republican’s have been inaugurated, okay? Me: I’m very confident partial birth abortion will be banned. It just won’t happen with fanfare.
