  •  Bush Not A 12 Stepper (4.00)
    Bush is not a 12 stepper.  He's a dry drunk who very possibly may have returned to drinking.  The 12 step program is very big on acknowledging mistakes and making amends - 2 things you do not see see Bush doing.    
    •  that's right... (4.00)
      he NEVER went to A.A.  He thought accepting Jesus was enough.  Little did he know that Jesus wanted him to use his GOD-GIVEN abilities to actively participate in his recovery.

    •  Yep. (none)
      The farthest thing from a "strict set of rules." Now that fundy business, that's another story. Break the rules, go to Hell.

      Down, by God, but not out.

    •  thank you (4.00)
      for pointing out that Bush's supposed sobriety and characteristics have absolutely no relation to the 12 Steps of AA or any other recovery group I'm familiar with.

      Rimjob should clarify this - to analyze his behavior in light of the 12 Steps is to truly damn them.

      The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.

      Kerry's bizarre (IMO) quote in his Brown U. speech a lot more resonance:

      I know the President went on national television last week and accepted responsibility for Washington's poor response to Katrina. That's admirable. And it's a first. As they say, the first step towards recovery is to get out of denial. But don't hold your breath hoping acceptance of responsibility will become a habit for this administration.

      I noticed that the moment I read it, and thought it really out of place to be poking fun at an alcoholic in that way.  But maybe he knows something.

      Also, about the Enquirer: they're owned by the same group that signed the big deal with Schwarzenegger for editing their muscle mags.  That's notable.
