Bush Most `Surprised' by Prayers of Americans

The thing that most surprised former President George W. Bush was not international crises like the 9/11 terrorist attacks, nor the resilience of the Iraqi insurgency, but rather the impact of prayers from the American people, he said.

"The biggest surprise of the presidency was the calming effect of prayer by total strangers," Bush told about 700 college students and business leaders during a private appearance last Friday (March 12) at Southeastern University, an Assemblies of God-affiliated school in
central Florida.

Bush said he was shocked and humbled by how many people prayed for him. "Imagine being a president of the United States and innumerable people would come up to you on a rope line and they're not going to say `I want a bridge' or `I want something special.' They come up to you and say, `I'm here to tell you, Mr. President, that I pray for you.' You gain strength as a leader by recognizing you need help."


Both the president and former first lady Laura Bush spoke at the university's Leadership Forum, the first time they have spoken on the same program since leaving the White House.

The former president talked at length about his battle with alcoholism, during a candid hour-long conversation with Southeastern chancellor Tommy Barnett. Bush said it was a private conversation with evangelist Billy Graham in his parents' living room -- after his fifth glass of wine -- that finally convinced him to give up the bottle.

"I wouldn't be sitting here as president of the United States if I hadn't quit drinking," he said.

Bush said he regretted some of his tough talk about terrorists after 9/11. "If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't say `dead or alive' or `bring `em on."' But he explained: "The enemy has got to know we were going to find them and hunt them down -- there I go again! -- we would
locate them."

Bush talked openly about practicing his Christianity in office, including sharing his faith with the Russian and Chinese heads of state.

He said he told the Chinese president that Christianity is good for China. "Wouldn't you like to have a people whose first obligation is to love?" he recalled telling the Chinese leader.

Comments

I like the fact that he was carrying out the Great Commission during his presidency, especially with world leaders. And perhaps it was probably better that it didn't get press coverage at the time, because he would've been criticized by the press for "throwing his religion around" and violating those well known words in the 1st amendment, "separation of church and state" written by Thomas Jefferson. Of course, we all know better.

President Bush had no business telling any world leader that Christianity is best for their country. That is not the responsibility of the US Government. And Thomas Jefferson did not write the 1st amendment or any part of the US Constitution. He wrote the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson was in France as our ambassador when the Constitution was written.

Awesome.
I always liked GWB and especially so because he never pandered to ANYONE.
He never seemed to think that The Job, the presidency, was about himself.
Plus, anyone that the main stream media despises as much as they despised/despise Bush has got to have something going for him. The MSM are such suckers for glitter and dross.

Are there any transcripts available online of these meetings of GWB with China's Pres.???

>Any at all??

>Or are we christians obligated by Conscience to believe everything that streams down the tubes? Are mandated, or obligated by conscience or Scripture, to believe anecdotal stories without proof.

>Given the historical record, of a similar Urban Legend. Plus the credibility issues with former pres. GWB. I have to doubt this.

>This is sooo shallow, sooo hollow!


to ?????
Did you look it up? I doubt you will find much media coverage for those conversations. Of course, GWB never hid his relationship with God from the American people, so do we really have any reason to doubt this.
But if I did, I would take personal responsibility to look it up.

No Jamie, but then why should I?

Shouldn't responsible Journalists be aware of this. That in an article of this nature they/he/she owe to their readers or fan base that information at a minimum.

It is not the responsibility of the Media to keep Transcripts of Congressional Speeches, or Political Speeches. It is the responsibility of Congress, and the appropiate authorities to do that.

If the Media keeps them for their "own profit", is fine and dandy, but they still have to get their Copies from the Original sources; Government.

So transcripts of those conversations, if they do exists, at a minimum should be made available to the Media upon requests. And Christianity Today and their staff, are Media.

But I guess since "Christians" are not under the Law but under Grace. That type of responsibility is not expected of CT or any other "Christian-media". So then they may feel free, and be let loose of any cumbersome "rules" that will require of them a burden of proof.

There is a unity lost between Governing Parties that is needed to help the people feel secure. The moral building block for Health Care.
To see the true Health Care Tax forum you must stop thinking in 3-D,This multi tax forum is against a $100 Trillion Dollar system.. ...
To force pay into another system of failures within Health Care Insurance Groups.
This economy will not balance with this concept of a tax forum against the Health Care System. The issue of how to force pay into this system of Health Care may have worked but I am still troubled over the progressive tax forum within this Bill. It covers so many items and Countries that it only forces the system to adjust itself. In some areas, increases against the people and the troubled economy, and in other areas, less effects will be felt.
But this is my big problem, Government Officials seek help and they are to proud to ask us, “the true working force of Government.” It is understandable they have failed the People and within the United States Of America all we ask is to see us as who we are and not try to bring us into this world of the intellectual. I guess our Prime Directive is that of Star Trek, so it must be understood that for millions of people we are just as happy as can be making $13.00 per hour and we have no interest in this world of politics, and how to be a Enstine. Government Officials must understand that there is a level of people within different parts of this Country, that seek to be only that they find to make them happy.
As for this economy well, it is said that the U.S.A. Arms Division has created enough arsenal to destroy every last creature in the world 2 times over,built with tax dollars. This would be funny if not for the irony of it. And now as time has passed Government Officials keep failing. Before 9/11 all the way to today.
As it is in a world of a system, when employees continue to fail, one or two things happen, one; you get fired, two; if you see into a person a good, then it is political correct to implement a penalty or roll back in pay. But this implement of penalty is more favored in the course of action in the Federal Employment World. So how to fix the economy and unite it with the Health Care issue. It would be in the Countries best interest to implement a 10% per cent penalty against every State, County and Government Official within this Matrix of failures. Hey what is that old saying, what is good for the Goose is good for the Gander. I am serous about this, it is past due to show that our Government Officials they have failed, their system failure reaches into this world of warnings that they brush aside as if the information is not worthy noting. From Pearl Harbor to 9/11/2001 to 3/07/2010 of our tax system and Health Care Reform. This 10% per cent penalty should go into the Health Care Forum.
The big problem that Government Officials have is that they have no street credit. President Obama still has some but if he does not take his family and step away from these dueling Parties, that fight over this Health Care Dollar, and stand with Us he will lose all credit from the streets to the county.
President Obama, I would say to you, you have one last chance to regain the hopes and dreams of the American People. To reach out in a concept that states, if there is 250 million people in trouble because of these failures, I would give all my money to them and then I would say to all that I gave money to, “I have no money left, would you all please give me $1.00 back and then I would have $250. million dollars to start all over again.”

As for this $100,trillion dollar in site.............
Results 1 - 10 of about 685,000 for net worth of medicine development industry
Just to show how deep this Health Care Tax split petition reaches. The term split petition is used because of the Tax factor plan that is not seen because of the intent not to show a capital Taxing of close to a $100 trillion dollar package, a yearly system income, not profit.....

Some have stated that I clam to have spiritual in site or something of the sort. I assure you this is not true, so when I state that I asked God to help, it is my way of saying hey Bobby show me how to work on theses Chevy engines. But I do thank you for the consideration. Consider me a cross of Jethro Bodine from the Beverly Hill Billies with my 10th. Grade education and Vin Diesel from the move Pitch Black.

This great country of the United States was built upon God and Christian principles...as Christians first and then Americans, our first allegiance is to God in Jesus Christ...He is our LORD and Savior... President George Bush is putting his faith out there by talking with world leaders, such as China's, and to all he meets, about Christianity as a priority before his allegiance to the United States as President of the United States...I admire him for his stand and courage...we need more of this in political office instead of self-serving officials who do not care about others but just themselves...it is also wonderful to see in President George Bush a man of faith who is grateful and humbled by others praying for him...yes, he knows he is a sinner, like all of us, and he has made mistakes, but he is human, a child of God, and I thank the Lord every day for him...

I had to wait for this Bill to be passed in order to show the Republican Party and GOP and FRC Action that it is the voice of the people that guides the destiny of this Country.
As predicted , the first stages of the Health Care Bill was passed. Why, you ask ? It is because people wish to be seen for their in put of a view and not unite. What is lost is respect with in a concept of { Freedom Of Choice } to be a part of this system or not, with in this Health Care Force Pay Matrix.
What is offered by FASC Concepts is the Freedom Of Choice, because we feel it is unconstitutional to force pay into the failures of Health Care Insurance Companies and then Tax that money. As you can see our elected officials are paying little attention to the public. As I reach out to my computer and I knock , knock, knock on the screen, and I say is there any body out there?
This Health Care issue keeps taking turns and twist that bewilder the mind in thoughts. This $100 trillion dollar system ,as it would seem, I am counting up to $ 8 trillion 682 billion Dollars so far. One guy emailed me and he is up to $27 Trillion dollars.
You see when Harry Reid added a extra ....almost, $2 Trillion dollars in a tax forum, this through my numbers off with the 1 to 3 year spread of taxes.
Lets show you this way seeing how I run out of fingers to count on and I do not feel like taking my shoes off.....
to get a $4 Trillion dollar tax spread, it is based at a 0.25% up to 4 years.
To be able to see the amount taxed in one year as a whole at 50% is around $8.2 Trillion to $8.8 Trillion, please remember according to Government Officials this is to be a spread tax, 3 to 10 years.. There is over 10 thousand companies I have not even got to yet. So lets take this $ 8 trillion 682 billion Dollars and forget about the other figures, reach into your mind and say ,1 to 3 to 10 years Tax against the Health Care System, then take this 10% tax against the almost $4 Trillion Dollars, your factor must be a multiplication. Then you will see this Tax factor as net value of that system. But of course Government Officials will not show the a net value of a system or that one company, this wold make it to easy for the People to follow the Tax Dollar.
Remember this tax dollar does not include the split petition of the tax forum of increases in other areas, in the name of Health Care Reform. This tax forum I, or we can have very little effect against.
As for theses hidden taxes, they are not hidden. They are built into a split petition. They are meant not to be seen, only revealed as the Progressive Capital Tax Forum works the system in order to not over burden the money system. What is lost is trust because Government Officials by considering the public slow witted and as for this Bill, I want to read the Law that is to represent the Bill. This is because one word has a directive and a code and a sentence can lead to a different truth in concept.
So now it begins, the Civil Rights Law Suits and Constitutional Suits. We are not talking just a few law suits we are talking thousands will be filed because of the Freedom Of Choice is taken away and a Tax against money that is not Government Officials Rights to Tax, the Health Care Money for Coverage.
Within our web site we suggested to build a Government Web Site that will show the People the monthly income of this Health Care Dollar and what the dollar is used for. But of Course this can not be allowed this would audit the IRS and Government System.

So, what do you wish to do ? Sit back and complain or unite your voice as one and state that ,{ We believe in the Freedom Of Choice to be a Part Of this Health Care System or not. } We intend to give life to hope to where there is none.

Hmmmm. Why all the heat about whether or not President Bush engaged in a bit of mission work while sitting in the Oval Office (figuratively if not quite literally)?
Someone mentioned the separation thing which actually does not exist in the Constitution but nevertheless the perception persists.....anyway, even if there DID exist the separation of church and state, I would guess that George Bush must answer to a higher calling than the COnstitution and if he felt "led" to share the gospel of Christ with ANYONE then surely it behooved him to be obedient to the nudging of the Spirit and do so. Who are we to judge on such a matter? Ask ourselves: how does God view that act of obedience to His exhortation to spread the gospel of Christ?


I never much cared for W, but I am glad that he took his vocation as a Christian seriously and was willing to talk to the Chinese leaders about his faith. Obviously he was never in any physical danger but it still takes a certain amount of courage to bring up a taboo subject to a hostile audience.

SCHEMATIC  part 1
 I have had a lot of people say just show it, and let you judge for yourself of what the FASC CARD merged with the Healthcare Reform Stimulus Package dose / tax forum concept.
 It forces the system to work in and for a persons life and it is based on a 10% concept per year, but it allows the system to flow according to that pay check, because a dollor is not a conctant figure.
 At the same time it brings ballance to a over budget health care cost. This brings the roll back of cost to a stop and floats a program into place that works for both sides.
 It brings the merger of Healthcare insurance companies to work as one for those who wish to pay into this concept. It offers freedom of choice.
 The Patriot Act protects people and a company at the same time, because it allows people to to help protect this system as one under a United Forum.
 This takes costs off off a company and allows the work force to stay in place. It removes force pay.
 The card allows for the system to reach out and rebuild a persons life because it is being built by the people and it removes a income tax cost to it, its like we will help rebuild the USA in our faith in our self and it allows this person to be activly involved to maintain securty of it creation.
 It merges the 52 States to be as one and also protect by the striength of unity, known as The United States Of America.
    this flag is the symbol of what is lost in our country and this card is in its creation the rebuilding of faith in country and the foundation of the flag.
 This card is a anti / war, crime forum that forces the people rights of being protect as a united effort to restore order to a failed system that is out of control. This is done by the people that see that the system is no more than a Matrix. A building block of being control by a system inspired by creaters of live to a inadamont object, a none living thing, {that in words spoking as government in a sentence = a concept of a Matrix.} This is a miss use of words. The human life within the United States Of America is Government and that gives freedom of choice., and  the people are the controling factor.....
 This failed system I call A.I. is my way of saying that { it } needs to invest back into the people to restore life as it is ordered by the Constitution.
 I told I like to play with words.....
 To simple put it the Officals Of Government has no choice but to invest back into the people, because taking from companies and the rich will futher induce error within this Matrix.....
 Toptentogo has been placed into this forum as a sign of unity of people in their hopes that this 1900 pages of Bill to law will not force this battle for, four more years of fighting a net forum of control.
 The International Boycott of the Arabic Drug Empire and the scams that hurt so many people will bring into life the Patriot Act  in true forum un changed by a people who wish to change the Patriot Act in a attempt to find futher messures of control.
 
This concepts of the Federal Act Security Card stands in the way of what we call a artificial intelligence and puts men and women into office that have faith in them self as a person of God and Country.
 3/28/2010  Conservative Blogger Calls For Obama's Assassination On Twitter
  I found the need to go ahead and show this now it is important and it is a part of a blog  report.....
 
Part of this issue may be my fault. Because I am dyslectic I am miss under stood when I write. And it took me over a hour to write this with the help of A.I.. I do not know if Officials used any or part of what I shared but this hate threats is not the way to bring a proper reform to Health Care or into the lost ways of { Government way of thinking. } So join us and share good ideas to help build a forum that will help every body. Just leave a great blog statement.
As I read more of this Health Care Bill 101 I noted it was based on the same concepts as what I offered to the Obama Administration over 7 months ago , but something was left out { because none of these issues released by Officials see into the economic condition at the home. Do not for get why we are in a economic break down of our system. This would be cool if what was offered was used, but hey Guys you left out something .....
 
A short re- cap, At average for people with Medicare Insurance, from what I have read is some people pay up to $500.00 per month, if insurance companies are forced to cover preexisting conditions at a rate that may increase coverage up to twice its yearly average on a scale that may effect other people coverages in order to maintain a dollar balance? And for the second time, but none of these issues see into the economic condition at the home !
 
So welcome to FASC Concepts of a Economic Adjustment.
We have got a lot of people who wish to know more about the function of the Federal Act Security Card. The FASC Card is merged with a Health Care Forum for the Poor and the Sick and people who have been impacted by the crash of our system. When we offered to the Obama Administration the concept of a 10% on a yearly income for Health Care Reform , our build blocks was to help the economic effected People Of The United States.
A incentive program that states if you join the FASC and pay in for a certain amount of time you build a capital of a $10,000.00 dollars as a nest egg for you children after you pass away. Also if you pay in for 20 to 40 years and do not use the extra funds paid in the total savings oh, lets say $25,000.00 + the $10,000.00 goes to your family. The $10 thousand can never be touched by illness or Health Care issues, it is a secured amount for investing into a Concept of Country.
As for the concept of the Patriot Act, to protect the Health Care dollars, a guide line of law to bring about a delay of fund being transferred out of this country , in order to give time for Government approval for the transfer of millions of dollar. And to make it a Capital Offense.......
The basic blue print for security of this FASC Card is a 3 part potion, as follows /
 part a: Windows : a pin number /
 part b: BIOS a Social Security number and /
 part c : MS Dos a Letter from the alphabet.
Pin number 0000 / SS# 000 00 0000 / Z
, what is good about this is when the SS# when applied it could be in coded within the Government system as for a example 000 00 1362 will be in coded and what number you apply will inter face with the hidden SS# ? To put it bluntly If I can build a system that can not be hacked the at home Our Government should be able to.

{ Re- cape }To help cover the sick and the poor is a FASC Concept that states that to build a Health Care Forum within our Government Institution is a Peoples right to do so and this is Protect Under the Constitution as a Human and Civil Right. So in plan words if the poor and the sick could only afford to pay $5.00 to $10.00 per month this would to bring a balance toward the broken tax system, to add up this number 32 million to 100 million sick and poor people x $5.00 per month. This will place back into the system $116 million $to 500 million dollars per month. The cause and effect of this will reduce the purposed Health Care Tax Forum, to bring about a reduced effect so not to a over burden system. Take my faith in this and almost all the poor and sick would be happy to pay in and help rebuild the United States failed tax system. Also To bring about a balance of trust lost between the people and Officials.
Under a Federal Health Care Group built by my friends and I, {You see the poor, as you see them}, as for them they see them self not poor, but of a different race of people and environment and have faith it that which was in the past that so many do not have a clue of what God and Country is all about. Those who you see as poor for most, we do not want to be took care of we wish to prosper so that our children will not be the next generation of the poor.
 
 
Issue 1. Re caped in a short version because my little friend did not prof read before she copied and past in to the blogs .........so if Government Officials did take my 10% concept under advisement you all over looked what the purpose is. And do not for get even people who make a great deal of money some have been seriously effected by this system failure of crime and war.....

Now for those who do not know of me, my old Health Care page at the health care link on page 2 and 1 you will find the early writings by me, the miss spelled words and I am a bit dyslectic so statements are a bit off track. And for those who did read this information will remember how I struggled to use the Artificial Intelligence of my computer to communicate. I hope that they did use my building block for Health Care, that would be cool.
But there are some issues to work on as in:
#1. Is There A Constitutional Infringement of a Moral Value for Health Care vs. The People { considered Force Pay ? }
#2. Concepts is the Freedom Of Choice, because we feel it is unconstitutional to force pay into the failures of Health Care Insurance Companies and then Tax that money. Even these insurance companies are filing suit.
#3. Should there be a Prime Directive for Health Care Reform that is in the interest for the better good of Man Kind?
#4. Should there be a web site to show the capital gain of the tax income from Health Care and what the money was used for ?
#5. Should children be covered by their parents Health Care Coverage ?
#6. Is the concept offered by us at FASC Concepts to cover the sick a good or bad concept ? I believe this information it is on p26 at the blue pill link , link is on page 100 at the main site.
#7. Abortion ?
#8. Sex Offenders ?
#9. Was there a Unity lost with in Government between parties that made the public feel unsecured ?
#10. Was this diversity with in the people created by the in perfection of conduct by Officials ?

He tells the Chinese leader, lets love and his people would love on converting. One, does he not know that the rest of the world is aware of American history? Two, it may have been useful to emphasize that our "christian" country would not tolerate the persecution and killing of chinese born believers by the communist regime. Oh, maybe he sensed he needed them to buy the bonds needed to finance the war in Iraq, and his friend Dick Cheney could then supply the weapons and support and make some money.

A man that promoted and condoned human rights violations -- ranging from the death penalty to torture (regardless of which term he used for it) -- can talk all he wants about Christianity, but since his walk did not match his talk it would not have been all that effective.
