Capitol Hill Blue is reporting that Bush is becoming unglued by antiwar sentiment and adverse poll results.

While President George W. Bush travels around the country in a last-ditch effort to sell his Iraq war, White House aides scramble frantically behind the scenes to hide the dark mood of an increasingly angry leader who unleashes obscenity-filled outbursts at anyone who dares disagree with him.
Bush, administration aides confide, frequently explodes into tirades over those who protest the war, calling them 'motherfucking traitors.' He reportedly was so upset over Veterans of Foreign Wars members who wore 'bullshit protectors' over their ears during his speech to their annual convention that he told aides to 'tell those VFW assholes that I'll never speak to them again is they can't keep their members under control.'

White House insiders say Bush is growing increasingly bitter over mounting opposition to his war in Iraq. Polls show a vast majority of Americans now believe the war was a mistake and most doubt the President's honesty.
Bush’s behavior, according to prominent Washington psychiatrist, Dr. Justin Frank, author of “Bush on the Couch: Inside the Mind of the President,” is all too typical of an alcohol-abusing bully who is ruled by fear.

To see that fear emerges, Dr. Frank says, all one has to do is confront the President. “To actually directly confront him in a clear way, to bring him out, so you would really see the bully, and you would also see the fear,” he says.

Dr. Frank, in his book, speculates that Bush, an alcoholic who brags that he gave up booze without help from groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, may be drinking again.

Bush's renowned mania for physical fitness aside, his periodic exhibits of amazingly poor balance do make one wonder. But as Dr. Frank goes on to say, if it's not drinking, it could just be the alcoholic personality at work. Does it make much difference?
