On a Mission from God

Before the link disappears, go check out this story from the BBC:
President George W. Bush told Palestinian ministers that God had told him to invade Afghanistan and Iraq - and create a Palestinian State, a new BBC series reveals.

Freaking YIKES!

    I was ready to catapult that into the faces of the wingutosphere, but the Quote is from Abbas. What are the chances they would discredit that?

    It's not the first time in print that Bush "talks to God". USA Today had a long writeup on it -on the eve of the Gulf War. Yeesh.

  2. There's few things scarier than: "I just do what the voices in my head tell me to do..."

    Unless it's someone with power to drop nukes saying that.

    If it's a politician cynically playing to his base, I don't like it, but I feel safer knowing -- he probably wants to live. Get re-elected. Keep bellyin' up to the trough, and all that.

    If it's a wingnut who REALLY BELIEVES -- I tend to lose sleep at night.

  3. dudack,

    No, it's not the first we've heard of it, but I just think it's so cute when he talks like that.


    Yeah, we're losing sleep over him. He's not losing sleep over us.

  4. I blogged on this today, too.

    The scary part is...Bush really believes God is telling him to do this shit.

    Jeff, have you read "Bush on the Couch" by Justin Frank? Now there's some scary bedtime reading.


  6. Is he putting us on or does he really mean it? I'm leaning toward believing the latter.


  7. Ah Ha!!! "WH denies "God" claim."

    That diddn't take long....

  8. If Scott McC says it denies it, it must be true.
