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.
I am expecting a Linda Blair response from the Libs over this one. Get your Holy Water ready.
I was talking about them probing the President.
The left prefers nuance (as in blowing in the wind or standing for nothing or standing for what temporarily may be popular), no wonder they hate him.
He runs circles around them while they fret.
God Bless him.

Hey! I have that shirt! I get some strange looks sometimes. ;-)
GO BUSH!! He says what others are afraid to say, women have no place in combat!
No, it's a statement of fact. And all the atheist-bashing and Bible-thumping in the world won't change that fact.
I voted for him and believe he is doing the right thing about the war we are in.
But he is no Ronald Reagan, and he makes me dislike him when he does his Rockefeller/Javits/Pataki schtick, as well as his Jerry Falwell/Pat Robertson/Charles Colson schtick.
He has had wonderful speech writers and wonderful advisers who have guided him in wonderful ways. And his instincts on defense issues have been wonderful.
But no intelligent man says what he said here, if that is what he said.
Folks may not always agree with George w. Bush, but he is convicted, and has the courage of a lion.
That scares the libs TO DEATH.
What if you're wrong?
"After the Declaration of Independence was signed, Virginia statesman John Page wrote to Thomas Jefferson: ``We know the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong. Do you not think an angel rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm?''
Much time has passed since Jefferson arrived for his inauguration. The years and changes accumulate. But the themes of this day he would know: our nation's grand story of courage and its simple dream of dignity.
We are not this story's author, who fills time and eternity with his purpose. Yet his purpose is achieved in our duty, and our duty is fulfilled in service to one another.
Never tiring, never yielding, never finishing, we renew that purpose today, to make our country more just and generous, to affirm the dignity of our lives and every life.
This work continues. This story goes on. And an angel still rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm.
God bless you all, and God bless America.George W. Bush January 20th, 2001
Huh?? You are "clearly" are p*ssing in the wind.
What exactly is the "frequency" of your Mother Ship?
Michael Newdow.... is that you?
With a daffy statement like this, I'm going to assume there an empty
12-pack case sitting besides your PC.
"Check this out" ping.
Dear One, you have that reversed, I Believe. He doesn't. Hence I asked him, What if you're wrong?
The fool said in his heart "There is no God".
