It undermined his presidency and his legacy.
Bush was born in 1946 into a powerful Republican political dynasty. His grandfather, Prescott, was a senator from Connecticut. His father, George H.W. Bush, served as CIA director and vice president to Ronald Reagan before becoming president from 1989 to 1993.

A fellow believer leads America into the worst war

I can't read President Bush's heart but it is most definitely troubling that a believer in Christ would lie and torture his way into believing himself a tool of God. Hubris as the author said is a good description of that horror. A particularly disgusting revelation was what he did regarding North Korea. I just can't understand that logic and I also still must say my heart would like an explanation by Mr. Bush himself though I can see why that would put him at risk. I t should. War profiteering is the same as manslaughter but people just give him a pass for Iraq. I don't I was a republican until then, not very politically aware until then but I was a voracious reader and history one of my favorite subjects. I pray the Blood of Christ over Mr. Bush and family.
