Interesting tid-bit on the Bush Administration

August 19, 2008 | NeW Staff

I read recently that at the start of every Bush cabinet meeting, one of the cabinet heads offers a prayer to begin the meeting. Apparently a prayer given by Attorney General Micheal Mukasey sparked the President to ask aides to try to gather some of the prayers to be made into a book. I wonder if the book will be for sale to the public? I’d certainly be interested in having a copy.

In another non sequitur about the Bush administration,  apparently the President is encouraging low and mid level aides to leave the administration sooner rather than later.  This is a considerate move on the President’s part because these people will have to compete for their jobs on the outside, unlike upper level aides, also the loyalty of most White House insiders to President Bush is legendary.
