Bush Listens only to God
The subject of the day is Glenn Greenwald’s new book, A Tragic Legacy. Crooks and Liars has the best post on it that I have seen this morning and it is disturbing. Close, neocon associates have convinced Bush that he is only responsible to answer to a Higher Power, not the American people when it comes to ridding the world of “evil” and supporting their extreme right agenda.
To do this, they have convinced the President that he has tapped into a much higher authority than the American people — namely, God-mandated, objective morality — and as long as he adheres to that (which is achieved by continuing his militaristic policies in the Middle East, whereby he is fighting Evil and defending Good), God and history will vindicate him.
And Bush confirms the priority saying,
“I want to have my conscience clear with Him. Then it doesn’t matter so much what others think.”
This is one dangerous man to be president, even for just another few months. If he truly believes that he is doing God’s work and only has to answer to God’s law, then we are in imminent danger of being led into a world war. He should be stopped.
