Clinton is right this time

"President Bush on Friday said that attending the funeral of Pope John Paul II was 'one of the highlights of my presidency' and made clear that he disagrees with former President Clinton's assessment that the pontiff leaves a mixed legacy.
'I think John Paul II will have a clear legacy of peace, compassion and a strong legacy of setting a clear moral tone,' Bush told reporters on Air Force One as he flew from Rome to the United States just hours after the funeral. He said he wanted to amend his remarks to add the word 'excellent.'"

Where was George Bush when all of the revelations about the widespread pedophilia amount Roman Catholic preists and the cover-up by church higher-ups became publically known? I've read that the Pope was busy at the time opposing the war in Iraq. A bit strange since not only did the bishops and cardinals work for the Pope, he actually had appointed most of them!
