Bush Using Drugs to Control Depression, Erratic Behavior


Big News Philippines. I found this link via linkfilter through Capitol Hill Blue. Here's an excerpt but the full article is here:

President George W. Bush is taking powerful anti-depressant drugs to control his erratic behavior, depression and paranoia, Capitol Hill Blue has learned.

'Keep those motherfuckers away from me,' he screamed at an aide backstage."

The prescription drugs, administered by Col. Richard J. Tubb, the White House physician, can impair the President’s mental faculties and decrease both his physical capabilities and his ability to respond to a crisis, administration aides admit privately.

“It’s a double-edged sword,” says one aide. “We can’t have him flying off the handle at the slightest provocation but we also need a President who is alert mentally.”
Angry Bush walked away from reporter's questions. Tubb prescribed the anti-depressants after a clearly-upset Bush stormed off stage on July 8, refusing to answer reporters' questions about his relationship with indicted Enron executive Kenneth J. Lay.
“Keep those motherfuckers away from me,” he screamed at an aide backstage. “If you can’t, I’ll find someone who can.”
Some people say we should consider the source --- that Capitol Hill Blue is similar to Matt Drudge of Drudge Report to Liberals. That, Teresa Hampton's  articles on a quick search in google will reveal mostly news breaks againsts Bush and Co., Either way, I contend, news is news, and this is big news. This is an update from my previous post from indiemedia that Bush is Paranoid, apparently from the same Dr. Frank. This time around we have more details, more than just psychological analysis or behavioral charts, but more specific documented behavior.

My god, Bush enjoyed using firecrackers to explode frogs when he was a kid?"

Dr. Frank’s conclusions have been praised by other prominent psychiatrists, including Dr. James Grotstein, Professor at UCLA Medical Center, and Dr. Irvin Yalom, MD, Professor Emeritus at Stanford University Medical School.
My god, Bush enjoyed using firecrackers to explode frogs when he was a kid? Well I was faulted for creating an ant ball from rugby and I didn't feel good about it when I grew up. I wonder how he turned out:
... insulting journalists, gloating over state executions and pumping his hand gleefully before the bombing of Baghdad” showcase Bush’s instabilities.“I was really very unsettled by him and I started watching everything he did and reading what he wrote and watching him on videotape. I felt he was disturbed,” Dr. Frank said....
Further, it says. “We have to face the very real possibility that the President of the United States is loony tunes,” he says sadly. “That’s not good for my candidates, it’s not good for the party and it’s certainly not good for the country.”
Americans, FIlipinos, Australians, Arabs, Iraqis, Afghans, everyone. I say, that doesn't do the world any good. To have the most powerful person in the world, unable to control himself. Is it not that even the Pope was defied? How many died by the way?
