talks about the same Bush tightness.
Irwin Stelzer, a scholar at the Hudson Institute, a right-leaning think tank in Washington, and a writer for the conservative Weekly Standard, was part of a small group invited to lunch with Bush last spring. He was struck, he told me, by "the kind of calm confidence that the president exhibited. I expected to see somebody under severe pressure. None of that is going on. This is a guy who's made his decisions. He seems comfortable in them. I or someone else asked him, 'How are you reacting to the pressure?' and he said, 'I just don't feel any.' He said, for instance, that 'God tells us there's good and evil, but can't tell me to put troops in Iraq; that's for me to figure out within the context of good and evil.' I don't think he has any doubt in his mind that he's made the right choice. On the other hand, he has at least enough doubts that he wants to hear other views."
Two songs come to mind with vision of Bush --
* Confortably Numb, or
* Still Crazy after all these Years.
I guess you can't feel pressure, if you don't have any conscience.
The way I read Bush's comments, he may have totally misheard what god told him. "Yeah, there's good and evil, Georgie, but then there's also the 10 Commandments. Hello! Don't commit murder!"
