CNN guest: Bush Bible comment shocked evangelicals

Raw Story- David Edwards and Muriel Kane
Published: Thursday December 11, 2008

George W. Bush’s recent statement that he believes the Bible is “probably not” literally true has apparently left many Christian conservatives reeling in shock.

David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network told CNN”s John Roberts on Thursday, “I think a lot of social conservative evangelicals were surprised — probably grabbing the smelling salts as we speak.”

Bush made the controversial statement during a Monday interview on ABC’s Nightline. When asked whether he thinks the Bible is literally true, he replied, “Probably not. No, I’m not a literalist, but I think you can learn a lot from it.”

One blogger at the conservative Washington Times, commented the next morning, “I already have an e-mail from a former Bush administration official who writes, ‘This just completely alienated his evangelical supporters.'”

Bush further stated in the interview, “I think that God created the Earth … and I don’t think it’s incompatible with the scientific proof that there is evolution.”

GOP Senator Warns of ‘Riots’ if Automakers Are Bailed Out

Sen. Jim DeMint says unfair union influence and the bailout culture will anger many Americans.

By Jeff Poor
Business & Media Institute

Time and again we’ve heard about the lost jobs and economic impact of failing to bail out the beleaguered American auto manufacturers. But little mention has been made of the consequences of going through with the bailout, and how such an action would be viewed by other Americans.

In an interview following a Dec. 10 press conference where he and four other senators aired their opposition to the proposed bailout deal struck by congressional leaders and the White House (and approved by the U.S. House of Representatives 237-170 that evening), Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., warned that the perception that some industries are being bailed out and some aren’t could lead to violence.

“We’re going to have riots. There are already people rioting because they’re losing their jobs when everybody else is being bailed out. The fairness of it becomes more and more evident as we go along. The auto companies may be hurting,” he said, but “there are very few companies that aren’t hurting and they’re going to hurt. We don’t have enough money to bail everyone out.”

Malkin: Democrats Will ‘Turn On A Dime’ Against Patrick Fitzgerald

Think Progress- By Ali Frick at 2:28 pm

This morning on Fox and Friends, right-wing pundit Michelle Malkin took up the conservative mantra of linking President-elect Obama to disgraced governor Rod Blagojevich (D-IL). (In fact, Obama may have “indirectly contributed to the downfall” of Blagojevich.) Malkin and host Brian Kilmeade also insisted that Democrats, in seeking to defend the governor, would turn on U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald and attempt to discredit his investigation:

KILMEADE: You know, one thing I think Patrick Fitzgerald is bulletproof. Because if Democrats are going to say he’s this non-partisan, A-plus investigator when he’s going after Scooter Libby, how could they turn around and say he has an agenda when he’s going after the Chicago governor and wherever those links lie?

MALKIN: That’s a really good point, Brian. Of course, they will try to do it.

BRIAN: Sure.

MALKIN: They turn on a dime on their former heroes and they will in this case.

Watch it:

Yesterday, Illinois state Republican chairman Andy McKenna, talking to Politico, similarly insinuated that Fitzgerald’s job was in danger. “Some have wondered if Barack Obama would keep Fitzgerald,” he said.

Malkin and McKenna are fear-mongering for no purpose, however. Obama has already made it clear he intends to keep Fitzgerald at his post. His transition team yesterday pointed reporters to a statement Obama had made in June: “I still think he’s doing a good job. Yes,” Obama said. “I think he has been aggressive in putting the city on notice and the state on notice that he takes issues of public corruption seriously.”

Illinois AG threatens to act soon against embattled governor if he refuses to resign

Illinois’ attorney general on Thursday threatened to go to the state Supreme Court to have embattled Gov. Rod Blagojevich declared unfit to hold office if he doesn’t resign soon.

“I am prepared to take action,” state Attorney General Lisa Madigan said on CNN.

She said the best thing would be for Blagojevich (bluh-GOY’-uh-vich) to resign. The governor was arrested Tuesday on charges that he put President-elect Barack Obama’s Senate seat up for sale and he has ignored calls for his resignation.

“The easiest way for us to move on in the state of Illinois is for Governor Blagojevich to do the right thing for the people and to resign,” she said. “Now, it doesn’t appear that he has any inclination to do that. Maybe things will change today or tomorrow.”

Madigan said she “won’t wait terribly long.”

“I have the opportunity to go to our Illinois Supreme Court and ask them to declare our governor is unable to serve and put in our lieutenant governor as acting governor,” Madigan said.

Several other options are being considered to force the governor from office.
