"Fmr Bush aide: Bush doesn’t claim ‘divine guidance.’"

Discussing President Bush’s trip to Israel, Jim Towey, who served four years as director of the president’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, told the Chicago Tribune that “the president does not claim to have divine guidance when he makes decisions, but he sure seeks it.” In 2003, however, Texas evangelist James Robinson, said that Bush told him:
