The nation that prays together, brays together

Today is the National Day of Prayer. I just sacrificed a goat to Odin, so I’m covered. Here Bush is, praying alongside Focus on the Family’s James Dobson and his wife.

What is he praying for?

Later in the morning, he met with some clergy to discuss “comprehensive immigration reform.” But these were not the only people he talked to about this subject: “I’ve talked to people who work for corporate America -- Andy works for Marriott International, a corporation that understands that it’s very helpful, it’s in their interest to help people assimilate.” If by “assimilate” you mean clean toilets.

“I’ve talked to people that are raising families that have come from other countries, that are now U.S. citizens and understand the benefit of what it means to have learned English.” They suggested he try it some time.

He repeated his new immigration slogan about treating illegal immigrants “not with amnesty and not with animosity and not with animatronics.”
