It seems that with little knowledge of history or of the world, and lacking the ability to analyze and think deeply about issues, George Bush falls back on his intuition mixed with the Bush-family bravado / confidence and labels his "no discussion" decision making process "faith-based" and himself "called by God" to make these decisions. The "Faith-based Presidency" is in contrast to the long history in the USA of "Reality-based Presidencies" where issues are debated and differences of opinion encouraged as a tool for arriving at the best decision.
Included is a roadmap for Bush's second term including the appointment of at least one Supreme Court Justice, with the possibility of a total of 4 Justices. I am more worried then ever before for our country and the possibility that George Bush might be re-elected. I used to think the article in Slate about the "Faith-based Missile Defense System" was a funny spoof. Now I see that Slate was prophetic about the entire Bush administration. And it's not funny anymore.
