Just the Way It Is

Atrios had this story about Scott McClellan refuting a story told by Pat Robertson. Apparently, Robertson spoke to Bush about the war and warned him about casualties. To which Bush replied, "Oh, no, we're not going to have any casualties."

"Robertson, in an interview with CNN that aired Tuesday night, said God had told him that the war would be messy and a disaster. When he met with Bush in Nashville before the war Bush did not listen to his advice, Robertson said, and believed Saddam Hussein was an evil tyrant who needed to be removed."

So, which God should we listen to?

Robertson went on to say,
"I think God's blessing him, and I think it's one of those things that, even if he stumbles and messes up — and he's had his share of goofs and gaffes — I just think God's blessing is on him," Robertson said. "And you remember, I think the Chinese used to say, you know, it's the blessing of heaven on the emperor. And I think the blessing of heaven is on Bush. It's just the way it is."
