Not a lowly sinner, just a sinner
In the final weeks of the 2000 election, shrub explained his faith in an interview with belief.net. Going back and reading it, I find his closing comments particularly ironic considering the state of our nation.

snip -

BELIEFNET: And that notion that you're a lowly sinner, how do you think that affects the way you approach government?

BUSH: Well, I treat people with respect. I don't feel like I'm better than anybody else. I feel like I have the ability to lead. I wouldn't be seeking the presidency if I wasn't confident that I could do the job.

BELIEFNET: So you're not that lowly?

BUSH: Each of us have different talents and--yeah, sinner, not lowly sinner. But you know, I respect other people, and that's what's needed in Washington, D.C., right now. This nation needs somebody to heal some wounds and bring people together. It's too bitter and too divided in Washington. And I think I'm the man to do that.

The whole interview is here (if you can stomach it) -

There's also some audio clips of his answers but I decided to pass on those.
