President Bush granted THE WASHINGTON TIMES an extensive and exclusive interview late Tuesday, sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.
President Bush said yesterday that he doesn't "see how you can be president without a relationship with the Lord," but that he is always mindful to protect the right of others to worship or not worship.
Mr. Bush told editors and reporters of The Washington Times yesterday in an interview in the Oval Office that many in the public misunderstand the role of faith in his life and his view of the proper relationship between religion and the government.
"I think people attack me because they are fearful that I will then say that you're not equally as patriotic if you're not a religious person," Mr. Bush said. "I've never said that. I've never acted like that. I think that's just the way it is.
President Bush's policy on women in ground combat takes just four words to articulate: "No women in combat."
Despite extended tours of duties in Iraq for soldiers and an Army examination of women's roles, the president told editors and reporters of The Washington Times yesterday in an interview in the Oval Office that he has no intention of sending women into ground combat, a mission for which they are banned under Pentagon policy.
Reporters Rowan Scarborough, Joseph Curl and James Lakely, along with TIMES chief Wes Pruden, probed Bush during the White House session.
The paper plans at least 3 stand alone stories.
Uh oh....the Libs are going to go absolutely "ape caca" over this. It's gonna be fun watching them make fools of themselves.

that's PRESIDENT BUSH, you donkeys!!!!!!!!
Well, that should get the Delusional Underlings into a full rabid froth.
Reporters ...probed Bush during the White House session.
That's just WHAT the way it is? That they're not patriotic, or that's simply the state of affairs where people attack him for that?
Well, heck... as backslidden as I might be... I would submit that I couldn't get through a week without my relationship with the Lord, either.
Sometimes I think I have a high-stress job, but I can't even imagine the pressures that a President endures.
The ACLU is going to sue to block President Bush from assuming office. They will argue that Bush in the White House violates "Separation of Church & State."
After reading it a few tijmes, I think it means its just the way people attack him, but the clumsily phrased comment struck me also, hence why I reread it a few times.
God bless President Bush!
In order for anyone to attack him for this stand of faith, what they really would be saying is that anyone who has a relationship with the Lord is not qualified and should therefore be barred from being president.
'No women in combat'...
Will he stop that soon?
