see, I thought this was a fair game

I remember well when our President took office. I remember someone close to me smugly told me that Bush would be a good President. He said something about no interns. I said, let's wait and see. He said, again smugly, no interns.

Damn, wouldn't we all wish that were the problem? Now we have a Jesus President who says to the troops with a big wink, "don't you go and torture now! wink, wink." Then, of course, removes the instructions to our troops to "not torture."

Hmm. I helped elect a President who diddled the intern. I was chastized.

He helps elect and reelect a President who not only guts the constitution, but turns America from a beacon of liberty into one that sanctions gulags and torture. I kind of expect an apology.

That is what I am waiting for. An apology. An admission. Something. Just acknowledge that when you assured me that Jesus Bush was a "Man of God" who looked to the almighty for guidance and would return moral virtues to the White House, that you were mistaken! Badly mistaken.

Instead of Churchy McChurch, you gave us a horrible combination of Rambo, Steven Seagal, and Pat Robertson.

Don't worry, I am absolutely sure that I won't hear anything from the Bushies. One close to me is now saying that Bush's faith was not that important in electing him. Really?

I am fully expecting to hear a conservative evangelical say, with a straight face, "why did you guys elect this guy?"

It isn't a straight game. When they elect him, it is about his faith. Now that he is a torturing incompetent, some of them are jumping ship and now saying, "hey, you can't expect me to now address his putative faith!"

Sigh.

You won't receive an apology because

1. Sex is the ultimate sin.
2. They hate Clinton more than they love Bush.
3. They believe the war in Iraq is a just war for a new time, which means we need to face certain realities. In other words, folks like us need to grow up and realize that Jesus smiles on Westerner Christians torturing and murdering civilians (As I Canadian, I can't be smug because we went through this about 12 years ago in Somalia) because the alternative is worse; radical muslims forcing our children to copulate with their same-gendered classmates while reading the Koran.

An apology would mean they recognize how they were duped, lied to, fooled,taken for a patsy, and were just plain too damn dumb to breath. No one admits those things.

Forget the apology, it will never come. They cannot see. They are under the power of a strong delusion. God help us...

2 Thes 2:9
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie ...
