Steroids Redux

One way to tell that the media is liberal and/or that McCain is running for president in 2008 is the following: Steroids in MLB.

The media is awash with stories now about how our nation's children, teens and college students are being inundated with steroid pushers now that McGuire, Bonds and Giambia have admitted to using steroids (or HGH).

But where was the media when Bush mentioned this in his State of the Union in 2004? Almost a year ago, Bush said:
To help children make right choices, they need good examples. Athletics play such an important role in our society, but, unfortunately, some in professional sports are not setting much of an example. The use of performance-enhancing drugs like steroids in baseball, football, and other sports is dangerous, and it sends the wrong message -- that there are shortcuts to accomplishment, and that performance is more important than character. So tonight I call on team owners, union representatives, coaches, and players to take the lead, to send the right signal, to get tough, and to get rid of steroids now. (Applause.)
I remember Nancy Pelosi saying that Bush was crazy for bringing up a subject that was not even a real problem...hmmm, so now that McCain says it--that's news?

Too bad those who admitted it will not recieve any punishment. Guess that illustrates your point, huh?

Leave it to you, STCA, to remember that part of the State of the Union address and that haridan Pelosi's reaction to it! Congratulations as always on your brilliance and perception.

I can't even remember what the article was about because I saw the name PELOSI and experienced my usual knee-jerk reaction. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR :(

I think it's also the ongoing grand jury investigation which is focusing attention on this subject right now. I actually am much more supportive of drug testing for steroids and performance enhancers for athletes than I am for cocaine & pot, because the former raise the bar for everybody, while the latter (arguably anyway) lower it.
