“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.”
Robertson, the televangelist who sought the Republican presidential nomination in 1988, said he wishes Bush would admit to mistakes made.
“I mean, the Lord told me it was going to be A, a disaster, and B, messy,” Robertson said. “I warned him about casualties.”
Even as Robertson criticized Bush for downplaying the potential dangers of the Iraq war, he heaped praise on Bush, saying he believes the president will win the election and that “the blessing of heaven is on Bush.”
“Even if he stumbles and messes up — and he’s had his share of stumbles and gaffes — I just think God’s blessing is on him,” Robertson said.
