Beyond the Campaigns of Hate

Chuch Colson condemns this year's mudslinging, attributing it to both parties, and both party's 527 hangers-on. (Though personally I don't think the Swift boat Vets are guilty of mudslinging. Instead, they have just told the world what they already knew about John Kerry.) He concludes though, but saying that Character is at the heart of the matter. He's right and he says this about President George W. Bush:
While I can’t endorse candidates, I can defend the faith and character of people I know well. I’ve worked with George Bush for ten years, beginning when he, as governor, invited us to bring the first faith-based prison in America to Texas. I’ve seen the president keep his word when it would have been easier to break it.
