WASHINGTON -- A last-minute decision by George W. Bush to address the Christian Coalition -- albeit from a movie-screen monitor -- failed to mollify the organization's founder, who cautioned the Republican presidential nominee against taking his group of conservatives for granted.
The Texas governor initially wasn't scheduled to address the several thousand members attending this weekend's conference because he needed to prepare for the first presidential debate Tuesday, his aides said. But Bush now has decided to speak to the crowd Saturday -- from Texas.
Coalition president and founder Pat Robertson said Bush "thinks that he has the Christian base all locked up" and wants to focus on winning undecided voters in battleground states.
