Earlier this week it was Tucker Carlson speaking “deep truth” about the comtempt Republican leaders have for Evangelical Christians. Now David Kuo, former special assistant to President Bush from 2001 to 2003, is joining the chorus:
A self-described conservative Christian, Kuo’s previous experience includes work for prominent conservatives including former Education Secretary and federal drug czar Bill Bennett and former Attorney General John Ashcroft…
He says some of the nation’s most prominent evangelical leaders were known in the office of presidential political strategist Karl Rove as “the nuts.”
“National Christian leaders received hugs and smiles in person and then were dismissed behind their backs and described as `ridiculous,’ `out of control,’ and just plain `goofy,’” Kuo writes.
