Default Is the United States a Theocracy?

Now, don't get me started, I know you could never truly classify the U.S. as a theocracy, but there was statement left on the blackboard from the previous class when I walked into my Modern World History class today. The statement stated: The United States claims to be "One Nation Under God", thus the United States is a theocracy. Now that may seem insane, but Bush is somewhat religiously biased and uses religion to make some of his decisions. What I really want to know is, do you think its absurd to view the U.S. as a theocracy, or do you think, that its possible to come up with an argument that the U.S. could be viewed as a theocracy? I mean if you look at some of Bush's (and even some past president's) decisions, you could see some religious bias/religious motive. And I mean, the United States is One Nation Under GOD.

I'm way too high (too high too high)
To be feeling this dry and low
I'm way too tired, I've tried
I'm fired up and ready to roll
Letís go
