WorldNetDaily: Book: Bush aides called evangelicals 'nuts,' 'goofy'

This according to David Kuo, who wrote it all down in a book titled Tempting Faith: An Inside Story of Political Seduction, and also said as much to Lesley Stahl on CBS' Fifty-nine-and-a-half Minutes Too Late. Among other quotes:
You name the important Christian leader and I have heard them mocked by serious people in serious places.
But, significantly, never Bush himself.

I can tell you exactly what's happened. Bush named a bunch of "professionals" to his staff. Many of those people are nominal Christians at best, and agnostic if you really scratch under their skin. They simply can't fathom the Gospel Message, the Proverbs of Solomon (and especially not Solomon's lament of his excesses in Ecclesiastes), or the Letters of Paul. Much less do they grasp how important a guide the Bible really is to public policy. So of course they think we're nuts.

The challenge is to get Bush to appoint better people. But this is not a reason to throw him over for some Democrat.
