    Yet more evidence that Bush is unhinged. The stuff about “our country’s destiny” is particularly disturbing.

    Report: In Meeting: ‘Wild-Eyed’ Bush Thumped Chest While Repeating ‘I Am The President!’

    Georgie Anne Geyer writes today in the Dallas Morning News about President Bush’s strange behavior during a recent meeting with “friends of his from Texas.”

    “But by all reports, President Bush is more convinced than ever of his righteousness.

    Friends of his from Texas were shocked recently to find him nearly wild-eyed, thumping himself on the chest three times while he repeated ‘I am the president!’ He also made it clear he was setting Iraq up so his successor could not get out of “our country’s destiny.'”

    This is the second time in recent weeks that accounts have surfaced of Bush lashing out or “ranting” in private meetings when responding to criticism of his Iraq policy. Chris Nelson of the Nelson Report offered a similar account earlier this month:

    “Some big money players up from Texas recently paid a visit to their friend in the White House. The story goes that they got out exactly one question, and the rest of the meeting consisted of The President in an extended whine, a rant, actually, about no one understands him, the critics are all messed up, if only people would see what he’s doing things would be OK.etc., etc. This is called a ‘bunker mentality’ and it’s not attractive when a friend does it. When the friend is the President of the United States, it can be downright dangerous. Apparently the Texas friends were suitably appalled, hence the story now in circulation.”

    Like the tearful House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH), Bush needs to channel his bottled up emotions towards a more worthy end – winding down the war in Iraq rather than defending the status quo.
