“I’ve got God’s shoulder to cry on. And I cry a lot. I do a lot of crying in this job. I’ll bet I’ve shed more tears than you can count, as president. I’ll shed some tomorrow.”

(Washington, DC)—In his new book on the presidency of George W. Bush entitled, Dead Certain: The Presidency of George W. Bush, author Robert Draper reveals aspects of the president’s character and life that few people have known. One of them is the tears the president has shed since in office.
“I try not to wear my worries on my sleeve” or show anything less than steadfastness in public, especially in a time of war, the president was quoted as saying. “I fully understand that the enemy watches me, the Iraqis are watching me, the troops watch me, and the people watch me,” he said. Yet, he said, “I do tears.” (Photo: AP)
“I’ve got God’s shoulder to cry on. And I cry a lot. I do a lot of crying in this job. I’ll bet I’ve shed more tears than you can count, as president. I’ll shed some tomorrow.”
Also in the book, Draper covers the president’s so-called “drinking days” and how his faith gave him the discipline to stop.

    Good on ya bushy
    I dont always agree with you but I believe that you have a heavy burden most of us if not all would have no idea about.
    My father in law met your father thru Union Pacific in the US where he works and is proud to know the Bush family
    May the lord guide you in decisions you make that affect the world in Jesus name
    I believe a man who can shed tears is a man who is willing to listen and be open to the Holy Spirit
    Take care
