Is George Bush drinking again?

I didn't know he had a drinking problem to start with, but someone certianly seems to think so...

It might start to explain some of his difficulties recently, or it could just be anti-Bush spin .


Like the President, I'm a recovering alcoholic. Unlike him, I've been sober for 11 years, three months and 16 days. Bush says he quit drinking without help from any organized program. I had a lot of help from family, friends and Alcoholics Anonymous. As an alcoholic, I can say without hesitation that available evidence tells me that Bush is drinking and drinking heavily.

The signs have been there for too long. Bush fell off a couch after, his aides say, falling asleep. He has appeared in public with bruises on his face, the kind of injuries a person would suffer from falling in alcohol-impaired conditions. He disappears from public view for extended periods, takes more vacations than other Presidents, has trouble forming words, appears disinterested in public and mangles his sentences.

In other appearances he rambles and appears unable to focus. During the Katrina crisis he displayed little emotion or compassion when confronted with the horrors along the Gulf Coast.

This web site reported last year that the White House physician had placed the President on anti-depressants. If Bush is mixing alcohol and anti-depressant drugs his judgment which is already suspect is impaired even more.

The President all too often is out of control, People are afraid to risk his anger by telling him things he does not want to hear.
a White House source tells me. Newsweek magazine reported the same thing last week in their story: How Bush Blew It.

The Enquirer interviewed Dr. Justin Frank, a Washington D.C. psychiatrist and author of Bush On The Couch: Inside The Mind Of The President.

... Quote:
I do think that Bush is drinking again. Alcoholics who are not in any program, like the President, have a hard time when stress gets to be great.

I think it's a concern that Bush disappears during times of stress. He spends so much time on his ranch. It's very frightening.

Dr. Frank is a highly-respected psychiatrist at George Washington University and his book about the President's problems has been praised by other psychiatric experts.

We interviewed him last year for the stories about the President's deteriorating mental state and his conclusions confirm Bush is losing it.

White House aides tell me rumors about the President's drinking began circulating last year in the West Wing along with questions about possible abuse of prescription drugs. They report wide mood swings, cancelled meetings and an ever-decreasing number of aides with direct access to Bush.

Dr. Frank told us in August:
... Quote:
Two questions that the press seems particularly determined to ignore have hung silently in the air since before Bush took office. Is he still drinking? And if not, is he impaired by all the years he did spend drinking? Both questions need to be addressed in any serious assessment of his psychological state.

It's scary enough to have a nutcase in the White House. It's even scarier to think that nutcase may be drunk.

How Bush Blew it - the article quoted above...

How this could be- how the president of the United States could have even less "situational awareness," as they say in the military, than the average American about the worst natural disaster in a century, is one of the more perplexing and troubling chapters in a story that, despite moments of heroism and acts of great generosity, ranks as a national disgrace.


When Hurricane Katrina struck, it appears there was no one to tell President Bush the plain truth: that the state and local governments had been overwhelmed, that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) was not up to the job and that the military, the only institution with the resources to cope, couldn't act without a declaration from the president overriding all other authority.

More on George's battle with the bottle....
... Quote:

I also know my way around a bottle of whiskey. I am not particularly proud of that. But I do know what I am talking about here.

Believe me. I have seen the same things happening on my own face that I see happening on the President's face.

And these photos have not been altered in any way.

Maybe Mr Bush and I both need to visit a dermatologist. Maybe that's all there is to it.

But if I could bet it, I'd give 3 to 2 that the President is drinking again. And he is drinking a lot. That's a whiskey face.

This may be a reason for his issues...
Looks like lots of chickens are coming home to roost....
If this is true its a dangerous situation for the President of the most powerful nation in the world to be in. Who can moderate any extremist fantasies he has?

President Bush feels betrayed by several of his most senior aides and advisors and has severely restricted access to the Oval Office, INSIGHT magazine claims in a new report.

The presidents reclusiveness in the face of relentless public scrutiny of the U.S.-led war in Iraq and White House leaks regarding CIA operative Valerie Plame has become so extreme that Mr. Bush has also reduced contact with his father, former President George H.W. Bush, administration sources said on the condition of anonymity.

The atmosphere in the Oval Office has become unbearable, a source said. Even the family is split.

INSIGHT: Sources close to the White House say that Mr. Bush has become isolated and feels betrayed by key officials in the wake of plunging domestic support, the continued insurgency in Iraq and the CIA-leak investigation that has resulted in the indictment and resignation of Lewis Scooter Libby, Vice President Dick Cheneys former chief of staff.

The sources said Mr. Bush maintains daily contact with only four people: first lady Laura Bush, his mother, Barbara Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Undersecretary of State Karen Hughes. The sources also say that Mr. Bush has stopped talking with his father, except on family occasions.
