President Bush met last week with some Amish folk in Pennsylvania, and he reportedly told them that he couldn’t do his job if he didn’t trust that God speaks through him.
I’ve been trying to get to the newspaper site, Lancaster Online, where this quote can be found in its original context, but the site is “currently unavailable. Please check back in a few minutes” for the past two hours–I guess getting hammered by people who want to read this story. After all the times I’ve read that Bush really doesn’t believe that he speaks to God, or that God speaks to him, this statement, “speaks through him,” is even worse! It could be one of the famous Bushisms…but then what did he mean?
