Book: Bush aides called evangelicals 'nuts,' 'goofy'
WorldNetDaily.com ^ | October 16, 2006

David Kuo

WASHINGTON – Top White House political advisers embraced evangelical supporters publicly to get their votes while mocking them privately as "nuts" and "goofy," according to a new book by David Kuo, the former No. 2 man in President Bush's so-called "faith-based" initiatives program.

In "Tempting Faith: An Inside Story of Political Seduction," Kuo also says it's time for conservative Christians to take a time out from politics and to re-evaluate their priorities. The book hits stores today.

Kuo quit the White House in 2003. Now he accuses Karl Rove's political staff of cynically hijacking the faith-based initiatives idea for electoral gain.

White House strategists "knew 'the nuts' were politically invaluable, but that was the extent of their usefulness," Kuo writes.

Kuo appeared last night on CBS's "60 Minutes," where he called on evangelicals to back off of politics – to fast and consider what they are doing to help the poor rather than focusing on issues like abortion and homosexuality.

Asked if White House officials really mocked conservative Christians, Kuo told Lesley Stahl, "Oh, absolutely. You name the important Christian leader and I have heard them mocked by serious people in serious places."

Specifically, Kuo says people in the White House political affairs office referred to Pat Robertson as "insane," Jerry Falwell as "ridiculous" and that James Dobson "had to be controlled." President Bush, he wrote, talked about his compassion agenda, but never really fought for it.

"The president of the United States promised he would be the leading lobbying on behalf of the poor. What better lobbyist could anybody get?" Kuo wonders.

What happened?

"The lobbyist didn't follow through," he claims.

"What about 9/11?" Stahl asks. "All the priorities got turned about."

"I was there before 9/11. I know what happened before 9/11. … The trend before 9/11 was … president makes a big announcement and nothing happens," Kuo replies.

At the time, Bush proposed for the first time that he would spend $8 billion dollars on programs for the poor.

"I think it's one of the most important political speeches given in the last generation. I really do," says Kuo. "It laid out a whole new philosophy for Republicans."

After the election, to much fanfare, President Bush created the office of faith-based initiatives to increase funds to religious charities.

But Kuo says there were problems right off the bat. For one, he says the office dropped very quickly down the list of priorities.

Kuo was motivated to join the White House team because of the promise of spending $8 billion on programs for the poor. He was disappointed at how little was actually allocated.

He blames evangelicals themselves for the indifference on that issue. He took Stahl to a convention of evangelical groups and walked around the display booths, looking for any reference to the poor.

"You've got homosexuality in your kid's school, and you've got human cloning, and partial birth abortion and divorce and stem cell," Kuo remarked. "Not a mention of the poor."

"This message that has been sent out to Christians for a long time now: that Jesus came primarily for a political agenda, and recently primarily a right-wing political agenda – as if this culture war is a war for God. And it's not a war for God, it's a war for politics. And that's a huge difference," says Kuo.

He said: "God and politics had become very much fused together into a sort of a single entity. Where, in a way, politics was the fourth part of the trinity. God the father, God the son, God the holy spirit, God the politician."

The White House calls Kuo's book "ridiculous," and Kuo's old boss, Jim Towey, who ran the faith based office until this past June, says Kuo is "naïve and simplistic."

"I think it's dangerous to take a snapshot of a few months or even a year and draw conclusions," Towey says. "Ya know, I can look you in the eye and say the president did what he could do."

Kuo says he went to the White House political affairs office, then run by Ken Mehlman, and offered to hold events at taxpayer expense for Republicans in tight races as a way of energizing religious voters.

Kuo says Mehlman, now head of the Republican National Committee, was "thrilled."

Asked if in retrospect this was morally wrong, Kuo says, "I feel like it was more spiritually wrong. You're taking the sacred and you're making it profane. You're taking Jesus and reducing him to some precinct captain, to some get-out-the-vote guy."

"I have this burden on my heart that the name of God is just being destroyed in the name of politics," Kuo says. "I felt like I had to write this."

Kuo says it's time for evangelical Christians to take a step back – "to have a fast from politics. People are being manipulated. Good well-meaning people are being told, 'Send your money to this Christian advocacy group or that.' And that's the answer. It's just not the answer. It's not the answer."

I have never really been supportive of faith-based initiatives, because as a conservative I don’t believe the federal government should fund private charities in any capacity and once upon a time private charities did shun offers by FDR citing that it caused people to quit giving and more importantly accepting such money makes recipients dependent on politicians in D.C. while at the same time subjecting them to federal law in areas like discrimination and people who receive such money are forced to drop the whole “Jesus thing” in order to perform charitable work.

It doesn't surprise me really that the Bush Administration would mock evangelicals...I've never been blind to the reality that Bush just uses conservative Christians...and only throws a bone here and there.

In other words, you are taking Kuo's word for it without critically examining his claims.

Kuo's book has the perfect timing, the perfect unprovability and the perfect message for the Democrats and you're taking all the bait - hook, line and sinker.

Sully the name of Coulter no more.

In all due fairness, if the likes of David Koresh and Jim Jones are perceived by MSM as Evangelicals, then yeah some of them are goofy, nuts and say silly things. I would hope the political advisors are thinking about the likes of THESE and not the middle road base of evangelical christians that voted en masse for W.

To the author, Mr. Koh: What do you think Hillary, Bubba and the rest of the loony left crowd call you? I'm sure there are many in the Bush White House who may be skeptical of evangelicals, but on the whole, I would wager a reasonable amount that the reception of evangelicals in the Bush Administration is a bit more positive than in the Clinton Administration, the prospective Demo congress, or anywhere else where Garry Studds and Barney Frank are welcomed and honored.

I agree. But, also in all fairness, we are taking as fact something written in a book and reported by the MSM, who are obviously pulling out all the stops and approaches to depress Republican voter turn-out.

Pu-leese. I hate to be so blunt but as my tagline demands: You are the braindead dork the left is counting on. They are making a very transparent attempt at fomenting angst among bedrock conservatives. In today's media nutso world all someone has to do is say it and you can get 15 talking heads hyping and piling on. Pretty soon you have drive by observers commenting like you have commented. And the liberwails will have won an easy victory in human nature 101.

A lot of people have already pointed out that David Kou (sp?) was unknown until this book... no real evidence of any connection to the White House...so basically this is an 'opinion' hit piece..

Take that into context and watch this Democrat Instructional video about how to push out political 'hatchet job' (my description) books in weeks to influence an election...

This is all part of the dems strategy to split the base..

Three weeks before an election. And an appearance on 60 Minutes.

I saw Kuo interviewed on 60 Minutes.

First off, the timing of his book...right before elections clearly is aimed at helping Democrats.

Secondly, his big concern in the interview, over and over, was that Bush wasn't helping the poor enough--as he thinks Christians are called to do (via the government? Where's that in the Bible?).

The interview even showed him being critical of evangelical Christians at a convention since they had nothing there about helping the poor. (what kind of convention was it? we're not told...)

To hear now he's a former intern for Ted Kennedy doesn't surprise me. Kuo is in no shape or form a political conservative...and is probably masquarading as a conservative Christian as well.

Out of curiousity, what has Jerry Falwell said that makes him someone who is "off the deep end?" The last public statements I recall him making were that 9/11 may have been a form of God's judgement against America for abandoning family values. Given the record of some of the things that happen in the Bible, I don't think that any Christian can realistically dismiss such a statement without weighing the possibility that it may in fact be true.

Exactly! I always get ticked off when people say Christians should support the liberal philosophy because it is generous to the poor, while the conservative philosophy is all about greed. IMHO, liberals want the government to take care of the poverty problem for them because they are either too lazy or too greedy to do it themselves. Its a cop-out because it absolves someone from any responsibility to the poor since its the governments problem now.

Robertson has did good but he is a fruit. Dr. Dobson is the only one listed I respect. The other two have been all over the place politically even though their efforts have been well intentioned but they are far more credible than anything the left offers from their quarter.

I believe the absolute worst thing that Christians can do is sit out an election at this point in history. What Christians and Conservatives need to do is make sure conservative candidates who are well spoken and capable make it onto ballots no matter what the National party wants. They didn't want Ronald Reagan either but he showed them. Republicans haven't won like that since he left office. People need something to believe in, not prepackaged vague issues where you roll out gay marriage whenever it is convenient but won't date speak about it with any conviction.
