Have you all heard about Bill Sammon's book, 'The Evangelical President'?
I can't wait to read it. I still love and honor my President! Of course, there are things I strongly disagree with him on and I certainly know he isn't a perfect individual. My goodness, who is? I know he is being abandoned by some in his own party - Republicans. I'm also aware that he is despised by most Democrats and left wing loons. Have you all noticed how much the man has aged during his years as president of this great land of ours? I saw him today, seated for a photo op with the current head of the Iraqi government. He looked so worn out and his face showed great fatigue. I wept for him and called on God right then and there to bless this dear man with some peace and rest. I know that his faith and our prayers are what gets him through these testy times. I'm so glad President Bush is committed to what he starts - he truly wants to see worldwide democracy. I'm also glad that he continues to have the drive to get up each day and face the music. He isn't a quitter and that character trait should be proclaimed on CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, etc. along with many other positive things about our President. But no! The negative, nasty machine wants to try to convince us, (Americans), to quit a job that is unfinished. I know this is a crazy thought, but what if all the mass media and all the Democrats, and all Republicans, and all Americans started concentrating on WINNING this war?? Let's talk about that concept for awhile! And, for all Christians who believe in the power of prayer; just as you should pray for your pastor as he leads his flock, (your church family) you should be praying for your President and all those in authority. I must admit, I fall short in this area and don't pray for them enough, but I plan on changing that right here and now. The scriptures tell us to pray for those in authority. Even if you don't agree with them, you can still lift them before the Father. Ask the Lord to show them their mistakes, pray for their salvation, ask the Lord to grant those who lead our land to be blessed with wisdom and discernment. These are just a few suggestions.
Some of the things mentioned in Mr. Sammon's book are:
*Some candid remarks on Barack Obama
*Why the Supreme Court's ruling on the partial-birth abortion ban was a victory and vindication for Bush
*Why Bush is determined to press ahead with his policy in Iraq, despite his party's loss in Congress
*Why Bush has offered advice to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton
*How the media has continuously underestimated President Bush, mocking him for his faith and ignoring his achievements
*As Bush stays focused on spreading freedom throughout the world, 'The Evangelical President' shows why the president's critics might have "misunderestimated" him yet again!
So enquiring minds want to know, (actually, I want to know) is this a book you would read?
