Bush at Peace

Posted by Adam Graham on July 4, 2007

I’ve had my fair degree of disagreements with President Bush but still had to admit that I found this conclusion by a professor to be off-base:

You don’t get any feeling of somebody crouching down in the bunker,” said Irwin M. Stelzer, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute who was part of one group of scholars who met with Bush. “This is either extraordinary self-confidence or out of touch with reality. I can’t tell you which.”

I might suggest another alternative. Maybe, it’s Bush’s faith.  Hard to believe, but Christianity has never placed a great value on panic, more on peace, more on confidence in your relationship. The emphasis is always that God is the ultimate judge, not the fickle opinions of the populace.

 Perhaps, that understanding is behind Bush’s relative peace in the midst of figurative and literal  wars.
