During George W. Bush’s presidency, he made clear the fact that he believed in God. Regarding the situation in the Middle East and how to best respond to September 11th, he said he prayed about it.
The Left lost its mind over this, calling the President everything from zealous to dangerous to insane.
Many against Bush said no one who was “listening” to God should be making decisions for the country.
Progressive.org reported on Bush’s “Messiah Complex.”
The New York Times ran a piece which asked, “Is President Bush a religious zealot, or does he just pander to that crowd?” (note the only two possibilities: either he doesn’t mean anything he says, or he’s a nut).
Another online article posed, “George W. Bush: Hypocrite or Fanatic?”
As reported by ABC News during Bush’s tenure:
“‘When he [prays] as a private person practicing his own faith, God bless, but when it becomes part of the official function of the President, then that’s something that is inappropriate,’ says Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League.”
For eight years, the secular Left raged against the tyrannical possibility that George W. believed God was on his side.
Where, then, is the outrage over Reverend Maxine Waters’s mixture of legislation and her belief that she knows God’s directive? Worst still, it’s from — according to Waters — the Bible. Where are the outcries? On Saturday, legislator Maxine claimed God was beside her in her political quest (please read much more here and here). Where are the shaking secular liberal knees? They surely aren’t being steadied by kneeling.
