That doesn't mean the Bush administration didn't try. It just means they didn't succeed.
Ok, so you compared the Taliban (a group supported by Islamic extremist) to the Bush admin (which won based in no small part due to support from mainstream christians). Given your past disdain for the religious element that supported the Bush administration, the implications are obvious.
Doesn't really matter though. There are no similarities between the Taliban and the Bush administration either. During 8 years of the Bush administration, no one was ever forced to live their life by biblical principals, nor were any laws based on Christianity adopted by the Federal government.
The conservative party is slowly becoming analogous to the religious right.
