While meetings with Bush at that time were friendly, Schroeder said he could not reconcile himself with the feeling that religion was the driving force behind many of Bush's political decisions.

"What bothered me, and in a certain way made me suspicious despite the relaxed atmosphere, was again and again in our discussions how much this president described himself as 'God-fearing,'" Schroeder wrote, adding he is a firm believer in the separation of church and state.

I'm eagerly looking forward to Schroeder's memoirs. Obviously he can't say as much about Bush or Putin as we would like. But I hope criticisms like above turn some heads.
