“America’s deepest principle”


President Bush told abortion opponents Monday that they are pursuing “a noble cause” and making a real difference in the campaign to recruit more Americans to stand on their side.

“We’re working to persuade more of our fellow Americans of the rightness of our cause,” the president told abortion foes gathered at the foot of Capitol Hill on a chilly, rainy day. He spoke by telephone from Manhattan, Kansas, where he was to give a speech.

“This is a cause that appeals to the conscience of our citizens and is rooted in America’s deepest principle,” the president said. “And history tells us that with such a cause we will prevail.”

Normally, I don’t like to talk about abortion. As issues go, it’s just lose-lose. You’re not going to change anyone’s mind, ever, and you’re liable to make a whole lot of people hate you by opening your mouth on it one way or another. Plus, it’s a purely a distraction issue – takes away from the real (dare I say, more important) issues that face the country, like the environment, healthcare, and incompetence at the highest levels of the country.

But I gotta say, this one kind of grabbed my attention. Because I have absolutely no clue what he’s talking about or what he’s alluding to with the highlighted phrase.
