This is my first time posting on here. Having read the above review, I felt I had to make some kind of reply. The other poster seems to think that the director of With God on Our Side was on the side of the religious Right, and the Bushes in particular. His comments suggest that the film portrays Bush in an heroic, even god-like light. Having just watched the documentary last night, I did not get that impression at all.
Maybe it's because I had recently watched an episode of the director's earlier documentary series, With God On Our Side, The Rise of the Religious Right. To me it seemed to be an outsider's view into this evangelical movement. While it did not try to attack the movement, it certainly didn't glorify it. And I think the same is true for the later documentary.
I found the film very interesting and would recommend it, though, the more extended series on the rise of the Religious Right has more detail about that topic.
