George Has Four Mommies

John Aravosis says Bush is losing it. He quotes the Washington Times:

President Bush feels betrayed by several of his most senior aides and advisors and has severely restricted access to the Oval Office, administration sources say. The president’s 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.

And then he quotes Drudge:

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.

In other words, it’s Bush and his four mommies against the world.

This bears watching.

  1. Didn’t Nixon used to get shitfaced in the oval office? I recall hearing of some cabinet member in the administration calling Nixon at the whitehouse to convey some matter of national importance and Nixon was slobbering drunk on the other end.Job pressures? I hope that Georgie doesn’t seek solace in the bottle…you know what they say..stinkin’ thinkin’ leads to drinkin’ or poor me, poor me, pour me a drink.

  2. The Oedipal thing is the big Bush thing. Trying to hit Daddy when he was young, recently trying to out President Daddy . . . Bubble Boy did ok with the 2 term thing, but the whole family knows that Bubble Boy is really . . . dumb . . . really is Bubble Boy. Well everyone knows it but Babs. Her dumb genes? Hm.. Anyhow, no wonder he won’t talk to his Daddy. Daddy will whup ‘im.

  3. This is the kind of thing I would have expected to see in Capitol Hill Blue, a source I have learned NOT to trust. But seeing it in the Washington Times is something else again.

    If true, it is worrisome. This kind of insularity is the first step; paranoia is the second; psychosis is the third. Nixon seemed to have been deep within the paranoia phase when he resigned. Bush, I’m afraid, will see things through all the way to psychosis. At which point I would say to let him have all the alcohol and cocaine he wants, if it will keep him sedated and out of trouble.

  4. As I recall, it was Barry Goldwater who finally got to Nixon and told him he had to resign. With all his mommies guarding the gate, who will get in to tell George?

    BTW, did you read the kos diary containing the speech that George the Elder gave in Asia yesterday? It was basically an apology, a “what he really meant to say” speech. Jeebus, this is just getting awful.

    As much as I despise George the Younger, I love this country and the office of the Presidency. It’s going to be a long three years.

  5. So Babs is now puttong her beautiful mind to the task of running th nation? “There there Georgie. You just don’t worry what those people say about you….You know you’re the best president we ever had!”
