Bush* : No Jew can be president
President Bush said yesterday that he doesn't "see how you can be president without a relationship with the Lord"

"Lord" is generally understood as a nickname specifically for JESUS.

8. Well, nobody here would vote for him, would they?
So maybe Bush* finally said something correct.

4. Maybe he ought to start practicing what he preaches!
The only relationship he has is with our $$ (his "Lord").

5. Not a problem... a good thing really....religion in politics, that is.
That's what Barack Obama seemed to be saying on Charlie Rose tonite.
Seem to be saying that Bush did well by connecting to folks in this way.
Dems had to learn from this.

Guess we should just pretend that the anti-semitism and anti-everybody else -ism that is a logical consequence of this mentality is OK too.

6. That's one way to read it
It is very possible he meant that. He is a bigot, so it wouldn't surprise me at all. However, I think he means anyone who is not a worshiper of the G-d of Abraham (of course that includes Muslims, oops). Therefore, it cuts out pagans, atheists, and a myriad of others. Typical bullshit from a master of bullshit.

12. He once said Jews won't go to heaven, so he must believe........
that they don't worship the g-d of Abraham the way the G-d of Abraham wants to be worshipped, ergo Jews as "bad" as any other non Christian.

18. Funny, huh?
Our religion was good enough to produce a savior for them, and how do the repay us? By saying we won't get the 'real prize' after death and allowing their hate to dampen the message of the one sent to save them! They are a sad lot, those radical right-wingers...and that includes the idiot in the WH!

28. Good!!!!!!
I'm a secular humanist (fancy term for an atheist I guess). Let's take a look at some of the people who are "going to heaven" whatever that means. the Bush family, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Dobson, Frist, Hatch, to name a few--but you get the idea. If going to heaven means spending all eternity with these assholes I prefer to be wormfood.

40. Thats in The Bush Dyslexicon
Did you read it too? Bush said he doesn't believe any non-Christians can go to Heaven. If he still believes that, it makes his decision to go to war with Iraq even more immoral. You would think that if Bush believed that non-Christians were going to Hell he would not want to be responsible for them getting killed. Thousands of mostly Muslim civilians have been killed. If he started the war even while believing that any Muslim civilians killed were going to Hell that shows what a heartless person he is. I wish people would use that arguement more when they talk with people who say Bush is a good man.

32. Fundemental Christians dont buy into a universal God.
Christians believe that only christians have a relationship with God. Jews and Muslims may think they have a relationship with that God, but they dont. There is one God and he sent Christ and he wants people to be christians.

It is pure spin to generalize that comment to mean all people who believe in a God. If Bush truely believes that christ is lord, he doesnt really think muslims and jews have a relationship with God.

14. "Lord" also means "God," though it's a title, not a nickname.

Lord only knows Dubya gives nicknames to a lot of people, but even he may fear going too far.

15. sorry to break it to you.....
...but, at this point in time, no Jew, no Black, no Asian, no American Indian, no woman, no Hindu, DEFINITELY, NO muslim, no "non-religious-person"(such as me), no bald man, nobody with a prosthetic leg, nobody with bad teeth, nobody with a DUII (oops forgot about GW Bush), no ugly person, and no one who is financially strapped.

For starters.

16. You're correct to state how bigoted this country is.
It's the fact that he's not talking about the likelihood, but the right to be president. That's what so offensive to me.

22. Bush,
just because he is the "President", ABSOLUTELY DOES NOT give him a right to say who can be "President" after him.

26. don't forget no pagans
We shouldn't be allowed to practice our religions on base (Zell) and we aren't charitable enough for faith-based funding (W) so we surely can't be president. (Although the libertarians ran a druid for governor a while back.)

17. Big surprise
He signed "Jesus Day" into law as governor of Texas.

And he also basically said non Christians won't make it to heaven. That was my first introduction at the republican primary debates of this man and ever since that day I have despised him.

19. Don't tell my Rabbi that "Lord" is reserved for the Christians
he uses it all the time.

It's still an assinine thing for the Chimpster to say, tho.

21. What does it have to do with Israel/Palestine?
Although it would probably be true to say that no Jew could get elected, I don't think anybody was talking about the Palestenian elections.

Anything to do with Jews is because of how evil Israel is, didn't you know that? (turning off sarcasm)

that you CAN be president without a relationship with the rest of the world, and without a relationship with the American people. An amazing man, our george.

41. Time to take Jefferson off the nickel, then, I guess
he was a deist, not to mention 99% better as President than the evil dunce will ever be.

Come to think of it, Washington is said to have had similar leanings, so that opens up the dollar bill AND the quarter for more different views of St. Raygun </sarcasm>

Oh, is there a link to this madness? I'd love to have it preserved for posterity (quite possibly in next week's Top Ten!)
