Pat Robertson Says he Lectured Bush on Iraq
But here is the kicker; he said Bush basically blew him off nonchalantly. See the following exchange:
BROWN: I want to ask you how you feel about the war in Iraq. And if God is calling this war a disaster, does that mean that he is actually opposed to it?
ROBERTSON: Well, I don‘t think God‘s opposed to the war, necessarily, but it was a danger sign. I felt very uneasy about it from the very get-go. Whenever I heard about it, I knew it was going to be trouble. I warned the president. I only met with him once. I said, You better prepare the American people for some serious casualties. And he said, “Oh, no, our troops are, you know, so well protected, we don‘t have to worry about that.” But it has been messy. And I think we‘re going to come out of it, though. I think we‘ll have a free Iraq. But it certainly has been a mess so far.
So Robertson's need to feed his own ego, in effect, shows us just how unprepared Bush was to be President. Oh, to end the reign of the incompetent one in November!
