Video Blog: Inner Strength – George W. Bush

This has hardly been a blog that features any kind of political thoughts or ideas (I mean, look at my last post for crying out loud), but there is something that has been on my mind a lot lately while watching the news. It’s how George W. Bush (GWB) has been portrayed about how he “ruled” during his presidency.

I have always been a big supporter of GWB. Most of that support has come from the fact that I knew there was a man in that office that loves God more than America. Some would say that that would “disqualify” him, but I think it makes him even more qualified. No president is perfect. No president will make all the “right” decisions. GWB had what some say is one of the toughest presidencies since WWII.

Anyway, I’m not going to rant and rave, but just watch this video and let it speak for itself. Especially if you’re a Christian and have ridiculed GWB, then I just hope that this sheds some light on where he is coming from.

I’d be interested to know if you knew about any of the information in this video. Take time to watch the whole thing. It’s worth it.

  • LAV:

    It’s refreshing to see young people like yourself that have the good sense and the heart for the Lord that can see what is really behind people like GWB. When one has the love of Jesus as their inner core, their light will shine through as it does with you. Keep on pressing toward the mark.

  • Something tells me that Christ would not have approved a war over oil.

    It doesn’t matter what George Bush says. As Christians, we are called to imitate Christ, not simply observe him and his precepts.

    In addition, note that George Bush seems to only share his faith when he is in the company of other Christians. E.g., “…when he’s standing in the Oval Office and talking to a group of preacher”.

    A large number of our Founding Fathers were Deists. Namely: Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Cornelius Harnett, Gouverneur Morris, Hugh Williamson (albeit not entirely, and more directly: James Madison, John Adams, probably Alexander Hamilton, Ethan Allen and Thomas Paine.

    As we were founded on a somewhat secular nation, it is not fair to the people to base our values upon the moral teachings of one particular religion. One speaker in that video blames the Left for destroying the foundation of our government by majority rule. Which is, of course, preposterous. We are a democracy and our government should reflect the values that our people hold dear. For better or for worse, America has become definitively secular and change needs to come not from a governmental institution but through a revival that touches the heart of Americans.

    Say what you will over this war on “terrorism”, but it would make a whole lot of sense to attack the accomplices in the 9/11 attack, not a country that is completely unrelated to it (our intelligence at the time said he was in Afghanistan, anyway).

  • @ LAV – Thanks!

    @ Karl – Very well said! Would love to have an old-fashioned debate with you sometime. :)

  • Aye, I would like that sometime.

    My apologies if I came across as pretentious in any way. I like diversity of opinion, even if those opinions conflict with my own.
