integrity past?

I find it quite ironic these days. I think back to Bill Clinton being the President; he lied about sex and he ended up without any support from the evangelicals. Supposedly his dishonesty about his 'bad habits' meant that he wasn't worthy of support. Yet, how is our current situation with the man in the White House different? Here's something that I cut from an article this evening... "Some of my buddies in Texas say, 'You know, let them fight it out. What business is it of ours?'" Bush said of Iraqis. "And that's a temptation that I know a lot of people feel. But if we do not succeed in Iraq, we will leave behind a Middle East which will endanger America." Yet when asked if he owes the Iraqi people an apology for botching the management of the war, he said "Not at all." "We liberated that country from a tyrant," Bush said. "I think the Iraqi people owe the American people a huge debt of gratitude." How can you be responsible for 100,00 deaths and not feel any sense of botching a war that you started? Or how can you even claim to be pro-life and not feel that you owe the world an apology? Ultimatley, how can anyone who claims to be an evangelical really support this guy?
