Former Bush Chief Speech Writer - We're Being Guided by God!

Here's a telling quote from Michael Gerson, who was chief speechwriter for George W. Bush before becoming a policy adviser and then a magazine columnist.

... I have twice had conversations with Mr. Gerson, when he was a guest at a biannual dinner of former White House speechwriters. He was a bit bashful, but ready to talk about his Christian conservatism. “We’re being guided by God,” he said. Our second conversation, in 2004, included the unsurprising disclosure that Karl Rove was handling all matters related to the re-election.
