The answer is simple. I have always argued that Shrub lost it years ago during his alcohol binging coke snorting days. Brad Blog agrees.
Buy White House aides enough drinks and they tell a sordid tale of an administration under siege, beset by bitter staff infighting and led by a man whose mood swings suggest paranoia bordering on schizophrenia. They describe an angry, obscenity-spouting man who berates staff, unleashes tirades and ends meetings with “get out of here!”
Bush’s mood swings have become so drastic that White House emails often contain “weather reports” to warn of the President’s demeanor. “There’s real concern in the West Wing that the President is losing it,” a high-level aide told me.
