not a ton directly on bush but he spends a good deal of time talking about obama/clinton and breaking down the shortfalls of their economic agenda. overall he takes a much wider perspective tho

he makes a very, very strong case for the importance of *the church* (not so much religion itself) as a foundation for healthy communities > healthy people > healthy country

For some Americans, religious membership is seen as a relic of an older generation, said Ryan Burge, an assistant professor of political science at Eastern Illinois University and a pastor in the American Baptist Church. Gallup’s data finds that church membership is strongly correlated with age: 66 percent of American adults born before 1946 belong to a church, compared with 58 percent of baby boomers, 50 percent of Generation X and 36 percent of millennials.
