George Walker Bush (born July 6, 1946) is an American businessman and politician who was the 43rd President of the United States of America from 2001 to 2009.

~~

IN ONE WORD: PIOUS

~~

Exposition:

~~

 

At seminary, I was largely absent, and always inattentive and, yet, I learned a great deal through what, I think the scientists call, osmosis.

 

~~

 

Yes, that was it:

 

~~

 

Osmosis.

~~

What the men of science call it.

~~

 

By osmosis, I remember this:

~~

“The man who has never seen the Devil cannot ever fully desire to know Jesus.”

~~

I am not sure if that is Scripture Herself, or the ruminations of an inventive, and very talented, priest, of which we had a few, but the answer to that doesn’t matter here.

~~

What does matter is this message:

~~

Attend carefully to it.

~~

Earlier, and from time to time throughout this epistle, I have touched upon the devil in the bottle that has ruined so many men:

~~

Including many Presidents.

~~

One such who met that devil, but had the very good fortune to escape His Evil Embrace, is George Walker Bush.

~~

What other things may be said, in favour and in anger, of George Walker Bush:

~~

This cannot be said:

~~

During his 8 tumultuous years in office he did not flee back to the easy path of comfort afforded by the Devil in the bottle.

~~

He was true to his vow to forswear the Devil in the bottle, true to his lovely wife, Laura, one of the really magnificent First Ladies of our History, and above all else, true to God Jesus.


~~

To those unmoved by this observation, let me say–kindly take, by osmosis–here this message:

~~

“The man who has never seen the Devil, cannot ever fully desire to know Jesus.”

~~

REFLECTIONS:

~~

I have never known a man, in all my journeys through this fascinating life who, at one time or another, has not had to look in the shaving glass and stare down that Devil in the eye.
 
~~
 
Mr. Reagan did:
 
 
~~
 
Mr. Reagan told me of that session in the glass:
 
 
~~
 
It was not pretty:
 
 
~~
 
And that cold, hard, look in the shaving glass, requires that a man be very brave.
 
 
~~
George Walker Bush looked squarely in that glass and he did not flinch from its message.
 
~~
 
That is more than enough good work for all of one man’s life.

    "Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he's the only one who's sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~
