WASHINGTON – Rather than delivering a fiery policy speech Friday at the Young America's Foundation's National Conservative Student Conference, Timothy Goeglein, vice president of external affairs for Focus on the Family, recalled how pride led to his disgraceful resignation from the President George W. Bush administration.
"If anyone here is suffering from pride, you and I were meant to meet today," Goeglein told attendees.
Goeglein served as special assistant to President Bush and deputy director of the White House Office of Public Liaison from 2001 to 2008. In that position, he was the main liaison between the White House and social conservative organizations. As an evangelical Christian who had worked in the U.S. Senate and on Gary Bauer's 2000 presidential campaign, he was well suited for the position.
