Many in this country both on the right and the left believe that belief in God should be a necessary requirement for holding public office. Well, you get what you ask for I guess. And here is what you asked for. A God fearing, devout lunatic. Bush told Palestinian delegates that God told him to invade Iraq and establish a Palestinian state. The White House now denies he said such a thing but remember Woodward's reports that Bush had nearly said as much to him?
Did Mr. Bush ask his father for any advice? 'I asked the president about this. And President Bush said, 'Well, no,' and then he got defensive about it, 'says Woodward. 'Then he said something that really struck me. He said of his father, 'He is the wrong father to appeal to for advice. The wrong father to go to, to appeal to in terms of strength.' And then he said, 'There's a higher Father that I appeal to.'"Bush says he doesn't use God to justify the war. But he makes such a grand point of saying he asked God for advice about going to war that one wonders if he's being completely honest with himself or us. Friends I ask you. Wouldn't you rather have a level headed atheist?
