    Wow, ditto the OP.

    Is this for real? I keep thinking it has to be a farce, something The Onion would put out.

    Sounds like the author has a bone to pick with him.... (same author)

    No, this is definitely fake. If Mr. Bush had actually spoken all those things, that would make his vocabulary twice as big as it is now.

    Not very presidential, eh?

    If true, not very nice is he.

    However, there are at least two groups which dispute the validity of the article:

    http://www.skepticfriends.org/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=4882, which references

    http://newsbusters.org/node/721

    So maybe the photo is contrived and Bush isn't losing it as the article, which was written/posted on Aug 25, 2005, states, before Katrina.

    Before I accept such an article, I would like to have confirmation from a more reliable or plausible source.

    I've heard that he used to have a terrible temper and was unable to control it. Apparently when he was running for governor he went through a crash course in anger managment. This apparently involved taking him to secluded areas where he was yelled at, insulted, and degraded until he was able to take it with out lashing out.

    Yeah. I wouldn't be surprised if the attitude is real (he is, after all, a gun-totin' Texan), but I'd like to see some references for those quotes.

    Do not mess with the leaders of the US.

    Piss Bush off and he will flip you off. Piss Cheney off and he will tell you to f*ck off. :smile:

    My God, you're right. I have to consider this debunked on that basis alone.

    I have a serious doubt about the details in the article, as well. However, it does have a spark of truth in the atmosphere that apparently exists on the White House staff.

    This http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9287434/ [Broken] considers the atmosphere on the White House staff to be one of the factors that led to such a sluggish response. People on the White House staff don't like to give bad news and the President doesn't watch or read all that much news - he relies on the staff that's afraid to tell him bad things for information about the world.

    Well - Bill Clinton supposedly has a bad temper, as well as other presidents.
     
  25. Sep 12, 2005 #24
    Yeah its true. It was back when he was governor. Theres video of it on the net somewhere.

    Capitolhillblues isn't a reliable source, but this rings true. Lord knows he's been captured on film plenty of times doing something vulgar. Restoring honor and dignity to the White House, and all that. But what can you expect? He's an alcoholic.
