Letter to President Bush: Certitude is No Virtue

By Louis E. Newman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2005

In a letter to Bush on the eve of his new term, the author argues that Bush won the election because voters believed he represented a commitment to "moral values" -- but these voters were mistaken. Self-scrutiny and a willingness to face our mistakes are the true signs of moral strength.
