I'll freely admit that people with agendas over-reacted and outright fabricated certain things regarding Bush's alleged "talks with God", and so on.
To pull clear back the other way and deny any clues exist at all is just as much an over-reaction.
Political expediency is an easy and plausible explanation, when one is campaigning. Hanging with the likes of LaHaye may be written off as a necessary evil. Comments to Bob Woodward about not consulting his father about Iraq, but The Father...well, that is certainly interesting, when one considers his father's experience.
After one has completed the penultimate campaign, one is left to finally and truly follow one's own light, beholden to no other.
As one of the few public appearances made since leaving the fishbowl, choosing to speak at a fundraiser for the Jewish Messianic Bible Institute is a pretty good tell...
Let's put it this way.....I don't perceive George Bush to be an overly complicated man.....simple, compact answers seem to suit him just fine.
If you look at the record, national security (State, the NSC) went to moderate Republicans, with neocons at Defense and in the VP's office. All the hard religious right got was the DOJ, and Osama bin Laden derailed their agenda on 9/11.

I'm sure Bush did pray about Iraq, but if he didn't talk to his father about going into Iraq my guess is that advice came from neocons rather than God.

Just my opinion ...

I just want you to know that when I saw the judgicon fairy had 'liked' my post, I went back and checked to make sure I hadn't screwed up in some way.

It always worries me when that moron(s) like what I say ...

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In a defiant statement, a spokesman for the fast-food industry today lashed out at fast-food workers’“outrageous and unacceptable demand to be considered human beings.”

Arguing that “granting fast food workers anything beyond a grim, scraping existence would put a serious dent in our profits,” the Fast Food Restaurant Council spokesman Tracy Klugian said.“Considering our workers human would be ruinous to the fast food industry as we know it.”

But Mr. Klugian was quick to point out that the controversy was about more than money:“It’s about dignity and respect—two things this industry has zero tolerance for.”

As fast food workers mounted protests across the country, the industry spokesman urged them to abandon their “reckless quest for human status” at once.

“They have to ask themselves, why did they want to work in the fast food industry to begin with?” he said.“Anyone who walks into one of our restaurants should realize that it’s no place for humans.”

Hey Mr Mason. You've failed to verify for the class if what I told the village idiot actually constituted a legal threat or not. What's yer "decision"?

Just speaking for myself, it was vaguely threatening but didn't rise to the level of a threat.

It was just simple keybored warrior conversation, one idiot to another.

Well sense I need to spell it out to you, seeing how you're a subjective kind of what ever the hell you are, here it is then:'Homosexual' not to be confused with gay.
Although, it would appear your purple Teletubby bear is doing a happy dance. <¦-o

I have seen idiots convicted of making criminal threats not too different from bad bob's.

Sure, this is an anonymous thread, but stalkers do abound.

It was just a word to the wise.

So you're insinuating, that the criminal justice system potentially has time and is concerned about perceived threats leveled at a Somali propagandist and pirate, posting out of Africa with a US proxy? More likely it's your lame attempt at internet censorship, something you lefties fantasize about. <¦-o

Let's see you think Bad Bob is threatening and that might be reportable. Now do you think changing what a person says to the press to make him look like a monster and even putting quotes around it is something someone could be charged with, like with a suit for libel?

I was trying to give you the benefit of the doubt, and ignore the fact that you come back to implications of homosexuality with the regularity of a poorly raised, socially unskilled, early adolescent who just learned about such things.

If you're over the age of 15 you're embarrassing yourself, pal.

I guess the teletubby thing is another insult?

If I'm gonna take the time to insult you, is might as well insult your happy leftist purple teddy bear while I'm at it. <¦-o

But if its not against the law, how ethical is it?

<quoted text>Now Chris.....you know that I know that you of all people here see a whole range of beliefs amongst, and most unfortunately, between, those who profess Christianity. I've seen you swing the Lord's scythe, friend, separating the wheat from the chaff, and calling down God's glory upon your valiant efforts.
By your particular lights, of course....
I'll tell ya what's funny - how some can lump all believers together, or divide them all up, as it suits them.
And it sho' ain't just the "bashers" a'doin' it.
Is it now?

Perhaps you've missed the times I've posted in the end one has the final word and our thoughts will mean beans.
