Before I attempt the picture, I wanted to find a quote about dubya being a born-again christian. I found this article from the New York Times. It is called Faith, Certainty and the Presidency of George W. Bush by By RON SUSKIND . I started skimming it for the reference.
I had no idea that an article like this was in the mainstream media. The more I read the more I kept thinking why the FARDLES is this man President of the United States of America? Did you read the article? If not, please go back. Just read some of it. Honestly, I couldn't read all of it because the idiocy, corruption, and utter lack of any of the Presidential qualities of our Founding Fathers is so bad it made my ears ring and to quote Stinkbait Boucher- It gives me bad brain.
Here are three quotes that really boggle me.
''This is why George W. Bush is so clear-eyed about Al Qaeda and the Islamic fundamentalist enemy. He believes you have to kill them all. They can't be persuaded that they're extremists, driven by a dark vision. He understands them, because he's just like them. . . . [The dots are part of the article, the next paragraph continues right after them.]
''This is why he dispenses with people who confront him with inconvenient facts,'' Bartlett went on to say. ''He truly believes he's on a mission from God. Absolute faith like that overwhelms a need for analysis. The whole thing about faith is to believe things for which there is no empirical evidence.'' Bartlett paused, then said, ''But you can't run the world on faith.''
dubya's reaction to dissenting opinions or requests for explanations.
The disdainful smirks and grimaces that many viewers were surprised to see in the first presidential debate are familiar expressions to those in the administration or in Congress who have simply asked the president to explain his positions. Since 9/11, those requests have grown scarce; Bush's intolerance of doubters has, if anything, increased, and few dare to question him now. A writ of infallibility -- a premise beneath the powerful Bushian certainty that has, in many ways, moved mountains -- is not just for public consumption: it has guided the inner life of the White House.
And from later on, a description of why dubya became born-again. Note who decided dubya needed a ''come to jesus'' meeting.
George W., drunk at a party, crudely insulted a friend of his mother's. George senior and Barbara blew up. Words were exchanged along the lines of something having to be done. George senior, then the vice president, dialed up his friend, Billy Graham, who came to the compound and spent several days with George W. in probing exchanges and walks on the beach. George W. was soon born again. He stopped drinking, attended Bible study and wrestled with issues of fervent faith. A man who was lost was saved.
The President of the United States of America is not infallible. It is the responsibility of every elected official and every citizen of the United States to question his judgment, to hold him to a higher standard of reason, sound judgment, rational thinking, and logical decisions.
For all prayer meetings that dubya has held, for all the claims to being led by god in the war on terror, and for all the requests for spiritual counseling and consultations with fundamentalist christians, I leave you with a few pictures worth 10,000 words.
