Hosanna in the Highest

I’m back in DC in front of a computer again, and I see that George W. Bush recently returned to Greensburg, Kansas to speak at a high-school graduation, a year after he’d been there the first time. Greensburg, you may or may not recall, got pretty hard by a tornado a year ago. On his 2007 post-tornado visit(ation?), Bush declared:

I bring the prayers and concerns of the people of this country to this town of Greensburg, Kansas…. My mission is to — today, though, is to lift people’s spirits as best as I possibly can and to hopefully touch somebody’s soul by representing our country, and to let people know that while there was a dark day in the past, there’s brighter days ahead.

For years, I’ve been hearing conservatives say how “down to earth” the president is. But would a regular guy talk about himself as a prayer-bearing soul-toucher? Or maybe when they say “down to earth” they mean literally descended from on high?

    The formats like column, image placement, size and shape will remain
    same if required. Word – Press and Joomla are known for their user-friendly features
    as these help businesses to publish, manage, control, edit and delete the content from their website.
    Check out these key changes made to the Elements 8 program.
    The PSD to HTML conversion procedure is quite fast and is done by
    the professionals. The ability to convert PSD to Joomla gives access to the plug-ins in Joomla which simplify customization for web developers.
