First Putin, now the Pope: George Bush looks into Benedict’s eyes and sees…
Well, you should read the entire interview with the President conducted by EWTN’s Raymond Arroyo. (I just posted on it at Beliefnet.) It was largely an exchange of softballs and back-pats, with more than enough odd interpretations of world affairs to chew on for a while, especialy from this “Catholic” president.
ZENIT has the transcript, but if you read nothing else, check out the outro:
Q Mr. President, final question.
THE PRESIDENT: Yes, sir.
Q You said, famously, when you looked into Vladimir Putin’s eyes you saw his soul.
THE PRESIDENT: Yes.
Q When you look into Benedict XVI’s eyes what do you see?
THE PRESIDENT: God.
Q Good way to end the interview.
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you, sir.
Q Thank you, sir. My pleasure.
