The Difference Between Pat Robertson and the Pope

One tells Bush not to go to war, the other tells him to prepare the American people for the loss of more American lives.

From CNN.com - No casualties? White House disputes Robertson comment - Oct 20, 2004:

"A White House spokesman denied Wednesday that President Bush told Christian Coalition founder Pat Robertson that he did not expect casualties from the invasion of Iraq.

'The president never made such a comment,' White House press secretary Scott McClellan said.

Senior Bush campaign adviser Karen Hughes, a longtime confidant of the president, said she was 'certain' Bush would not have said anything like that to Robertson.

'Perhaps he misunderstood, but I've never heard the president say any such thing,' Hughes said on CNN's 'Inside Politics.'"
