ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: In a commencement speech to students of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, former U.S. President George W. Bush defended religious liberties on Saturday (May 16) saying that faith was a personal decision. "Finally, you can be hopeful because there is a loving god," he said. "Whether you agree with that statement is your choice, it is not your government's choice." In a more light-hearted moment, Bush joked about his poor grades, addressing what he called the "C students" in the gathered assembly and telling them, "you, too, can be President".
