Intertwining Religion & Government: David Kuo speaks out about Bush Administration's manipulation of the Christian Right
Keith Olberman reports on David Kuo's revelations about Bush Administration's cynical manipulation of the Religious Right. David Kuo was once the second in command in Bush's own Office of Faith Based Initiatives, but became disenfranchised by Bush's underfunding of the office Kuo once held. Kuo repeatedly lays out example after example of broken promises and quote after quote from numerous high powered Republicans who held nothing but contempt for Evangelical leaders, calling them "nuts," "goofy," and "out of control."
In a related story, the Religious Right's leaders that David Kuo is trying to protect are rabidly turning on him for speaking out.
