Bush is fried. He's either drinking, smoking pot, medicated, or some
combination of all of them.  Either that
or the man has taken a one-way trip to crazy town.
Watch his gibberish at the G8, especially the bizarre stuff about how long
the plane flights to various countries are. If you take out the comments of
the other leaders (because they actually sound intelligent and not like drunken
bar talk) and just read what Bush says, he sounds just like someone who is more
than half looped.
"Gotta go home. Gotta do sumthin tonight. Get ona plane. Go home. It's
a long flight. How long is your flight? That's a long flight. Your country is
big. His country is big too." Retarded or stoned, you decide.
This is the kind of mindless bar drivel that drunks who can't shut up drone
on with. They just keep running their mouths, totally disconnected from the
non-verbal clues of the people around them.
Watch the press conference where Bush couldn't stop talking about the pig roast.
It didn't matter what anyone asked him, he just kept saying whatever his addled
brain was looping on, in this case, the pig. Typical stoned behavior. It reminded
me of the time Bush went to Canada and couldn't get off the subject of the mouth
one of the Canadian Prime Minister's staff members! "You've got a purty
mouth." Not once but several times. "You've sure got a purty mouth."
And, "Your mouth is prettier than my Scott's mouth." (The poor guy's
name was Scott.) Who does this? Outside of bars or institutions, I mean.
Watch Bush's body language at the table with Blair talking over his shoulder.
Bush is sitting, almost slouched back in his chair, like a guy at a barbeque
on his second or third 6 pack, chomping on his food with his mouth open, and
making minimal effort to intelligently keep up his end of the conversation by
occasionally throwing in something he mistakenly thinks is sufficient.
Watch the body language of the other leaders and the way they react to him.
With the exception of Blair, they act very restrained and controlled around
Bush, maintaining a public facade of geniality while holding back from actually
being engaged with him. What seems to be obsequiousness from Blair may actually
be him simply trying to get through the fog around Bush's brain to penetrate
with a little reality without setting him off. Meanwhile, Bush's social modus
operandi with everyone, including other world leaders, is to overuse forced
jocularity and pretend intimacy to convey a relationship that does not exist.
When he walked up behind the German leader and started giving her an unsolicited
shoulder massage, her body tightened up and she actually grimaced. She wasn't
enjoying that, she was enduring it. Before that Bush can be seen wandering aimlessly
around the room while the rest of the grown-ups were conducting the business
they were there for.
This is not normal behavior. Watch him closely sometime when he's having trouble
staying coherent and you can see his eyes come in and out of focus. He does
it at the table when Blair is speaking to him and he's looking out across the
room as he chomps open-mouthed on his food. This is a distinct change from Bush's
speech and behavior at other times. In fact, radical variations in his behavior
and speech can be seen by watching him when he is unscripted. Sometimes he's
coherent, other times he looks like staying coherent long enough to get a sentence
out is almost beyond him, (these are the times he seems to get mean-drunk angry
when anyone dares to question him), and sometimes he is just off-the-wall bizarre.
I'll say it again; the man is plastered, stoned, or medicated. This goes a
long way to explaining how he is so incredibly disengaged from war, disasters
and their destructive effects: he is too out of it to relate. Drunks and addicts
are incapable of empathy, everything is about them and their next high. When
Cheney shot that guy, Bush acted like he had just found out about it days after
it happened. Same with New Orleans. Bodies were rotting in the ruins of the
city, when Bush had been warned that it could, and likely would happen, happen,
and Bush's response was to reminisce about partying.
There are bizarre internet rumors of a personal portable toilet for Bush to
use when overseas, (to prevent foreign analysis of his excrement) http://www.rense.com/general72/fexc.htm
. Normally I would blow them off as some of the wilder of
conspiracy theories, but watching Bush's actions over the last week, I can't
help but wonder, to what lengths would they go to hide it if it were true? If
he is too incapacitated?
What would they do to keep up the appearance of his functionality? Who could
or would step up and do anything about it if he is unfit to serve? The people
around him are not people willing to part with the power they have granted themselves,
and that's an understatement. And with Bush at the top of the chain and out
of the loop, or just plain looped, who is holding anybody below him accountable?
His staff? Congress and the Media have abdicated their responsibilities, who
will do it?
Hell, they're all trying to give him, and therefore themselves, even more unlimited
power than they have already taken. As long as they can keep up the illusion
that he's functioning.........you decide.
