Is this the face of a sane person?
Many bloggers have been writing about this article in Capitol Hill Blue. We're not sure how reliable this is. It's not that progressive bloggers doubt that Mr Bush is a few fries short of a happy meal, it's that we're not sure that White House staffers are really concerned that Bush is behaving erratically in the West Wing and if they are, that they would even say anything about it to anyone.
It's no secret that Bush has 'cheating husband syndrome' (meaning he accuses others of doing exactly what he is doing), or that he likes to play dress up boy, or that he is a dry drunk, that he can't speak in public, that he doesn't understand American history and the US Constitution and doesn't seem to care or maybe, just maybe he picked up a newspaper by accident and found out that he isn't as popular as he thought and simply lost it. Maybe some cops in one of the cities he visited forgot to stick some protesters in the very American "Free Speech Zone" and Bush got to see the truth. Who knows?
President George W. Bush’s increasingly erratic behavior and wide mood swings has the halls of the West Wing buzzing lately as aides privately express growing concern over their leader’s state of mind.
In meetings with top aides and administration officials, the President goes from quoting the Bible in one breath to obscene tantrums against the media, Democrats and others that he classifies as “enemies of the state.”
Worried White House aides paint a portrait of a man on the edge, increasingly wary of those who disagree with him and paranoid of a public that no longer trusts his policies in Iraq or at home.
“It reminds me of the Nixon days,” says a longtime GOP political consultant with contacts in the White House. “Everybody is an enemy; everybody is out to get him. That’s the mood over there.”
