President Barack Obama said Monday he is allowing federal taxpayer dollars to fund significantly broader research on embryonic stem cells because "medical miracles do not happen simply by accident," and promised his administration would make up for the ground lost under his predecessor.

Fulfilling a campaign promise, Obama signed an executive order expected to set in motion increased research that supporters believe could uncover cures for serious ailments from diabetes to paralysis. Obama's action, before a packed East Room audience, reverses former President George W. Bush's policy on stem cell research by undoing a 2001 directive that banned federal funding for research into stem lines created after that date.

Because of the way our political system works and the amount of time/energy it takes to get re-elected... you also have to deal with the senate and house taking time off to campaign for their elections as well.

I was thrilled when I read this. Maybe now at last, we can make some progress towards finding cures for so many diseases. For too long, these efforts have been hampered by a stupid incompetent prez who was too engrossed in his religion to care a **** about helping people who need it most. Just one example, Christopher Reeve.

I rest my case.
