Wow… It’s not hard to see why so many people are beginning to miss Bush and why his new book, which portrays his aggressive and no-nonsense leadership approach to terrorism, is causing hearts all over America to yearn for that kind of leadership style again. Meanwhile, we now have a president who speaks more glowingly about Islam than he ever has about Christianity. And while we’ve had two years to get used to that fact, it still comes as a shock to listen to him refuse to condemn the term “Jihad” while in Mumbai.
“The phrase Jihad has a lot of meanings within Islam. Um, and is subject to a lot of interpretations. I think all of us recognize that this great religion in the hands of a few extremists has been distorted to justify violence towards innocent people that is never justified.”
This from our Commander In Chief. Shame.
(Side Note: Disregard the Will Smith observation at the end. I’m not sure why that was included.)
