[/url]

The San Francisco Chronicle’s Andrew S. Ross rounds up some first-hand accounts of last week’s White House luncheon, at which President Bush and a gaggle of conservative guests discussed the lessons of history, the Iraq war and the Almighty. According to one attendee, the president said he has an edge over Winston Churchill, as his British political predecessor was an agnostic while Bush “has God.”
:roll:

SFGate.com:
“It was an intimate affair,” one of the attendees wrote. “The historian Andrew Roberts and I had to squeeze our chairs together to allow the vice president, Dick Cheney, to pull his up to the table.”

The occasion was a book club-cum-luncheon last week at the White House thrown by President Bush, with conservative intellectuals, including Gertrude Himmelfarb, Norman Podhoretz and Michael Novak, among others, in attendance, and the guest of honor, Roberts, the author most recently of “A History of the English-Speaking Peoples.”

He may be still talking to god, but I doubt "she" is listening.

And it's interesting how two people can perceive the relationship they are in.

Bush thinks he and his god are tight. And his god thinks Bush is a stalker.

...and the host was completely out of his element as he's definitely not an intellectual in any way, shape, or form, and he consistently murders the English language.

Vanity Fair talks about the same Bush tightness.
Quote:
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!"

You are on target again CZ! Couldn't add anything to your summation of the situation.
