Pat Robertson is off the Reservation

Karl Rove is ordering a carton of Depends™ undergarments. Pat must be feeling the sting of declining coffers, and realize the damage a Bush presidency, Republican control of both houses of Congress and the Supreme Court is having on his Fortune. It is far easier to collect loot from people who continually feel victimized, and it is harder to play the victim when the deck is stacked in your favor. I said harder, not impossible. It is understandably increasingly difficult to check underneath the bed every night, making sure the Clenis™ is not waiting to get you. Apparently the 24/7/365 pro Bush, 'God told me he'd win in a Landslide' Robertson, had a chat with George "there won't be any casualties" Bush prior to the start of the invasion of Iraq in March 2003.
NEW YORK (CNN) -- The founder of the U.S. Christian Coalition said Tuesday he told President George W. Bush before the invasion of Iraq that he should prepare Americans for the likelihood of casualties, but the president told him, "We're not going to have any casualties."

Pat Robertson, an ardent Bush supporter, said he had that conversation with the president in Nashville, Tennessee, before the March 2003 invasion U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. He described Bush in the meeting as "the most self-assured man I've ever met in my life."

"You remember Mark Twain said, 'He looks like a contented Christian with four aces.' I mean he was just sitting there like, 'I'm on top of the world,' " Robertson said on the CNN show, "Paula Zahn Now."
Never underestimate the power of the Warnis™. Pat bore witness to the effects of the "Holy War Hardon", so firm in resolve, that it could support a circus tent. Mr "On top of the world, looking down on Creation" Bush's brain was flooded with endorphins, and quite frankly, Roberston was probably lucky to get out of the room alive.
"And I warned him about this war. I had deep misgivings about this war, deep misgivings. And I was trying to say, 'Mr. President, you had better prepare the American people for casualties.' "

Robertson said the president then told him, "Oh, no, we're not going to have any casualties."
Think of all the lives you saved, Mr Robertson, by sharing your concern with us way back then, thank you. When the president discusses "casualties" "us" "we" etc.. he's talking about his base, the "Haves and the have mores" and they of course were not going to be taking fire, just their war profiteering dividends to the bank. Only the untermenschen were to be casualties in Dubbys blood engorged war of opportunity.
"I mean, the Lord told me it was going to be A, a disaster, and B, messy," Robertson said. "I warned him about casualties."
You know Pat you really could have opened your pie-hole on this issue a little earlier and maybe, just maybe, so many souls would not have been lost. Now if you would just step aside and let some adults see if they can pull our ass out of the "messy disaster" you warned endorphin boy, but apparently no one else about. By the way, what did the little "christian Soldier" think of Paula's legs?
