BandwidthHog's Journal: Doing the shuffle? 6

Journal by BandwidthHog

I’m surprised that I haven’t seen this mentioned much: what the hell was Bush on for his NWF speech? I think the psych types would call that a “flat affect” or some such. Looked and sounded to me like he was brought out of a stupor with heavy stimulants or maybe brought down from a psychotic break with either downers or anti-psychotics. Seriously, what the fuck is up with that? And why are so few mentioning it? It’s not exactly a subtle thing.

He did perk up a bit later in the speech when discussing Iran and Syria, which scared me in a totally different way, but for the most part he seemed like a sullen child made to apologize to the old lady next door with his dad’s hand on his shoulder to keep him from scurrying away.

Wouldn’t it be the public’s business to know whether the president is on heavy-duty psychotropics? Shouldn’t the White House Press Corpse be inquiring about that? Considering how much ink was spilled over his odd symptoms during his debates with Kerry, isn’t this much more significant display worthy of at least as much inquiry?

    I think that's the simplest explanation. The public is not happy with the situation in Iraq. For Bush to come off in his typically flippant way would have hurt him even worse. Therefore, he got lots and lots of coaching prior to the speech. Just like with Al Gore in 2000, the coaching probably went overboard. When Iran and Syria came up, he prob

    • I didn’t mean recreational drugs, I meant antidepressants, antypsychotics, etc. In other words, stuff other people make you take, not the stuff you seek out on a Saturday night. You could be right though, but I just don’t see “coaching” as causing that magnitude of attitude change in someone so famously stubborn.

  • ...who is thinking the same thing. My first reaction was "is it me or is he really stoned?"
  • he doesn't even run the nation. He gets told what to say and they are worried that he is close to going completely off the deep end and some fools would actually follow his orders then. Way back he had that teleprompter thing under his shirt to tell him what to say, remember that? They always denied it, but that's what it was.

    I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he isn't a full MKUltra-style controlled human.
  • Drugs just do things that we can do already.

    In either case, you are describing an individual profoundly out of touch with reality. The ego can induce such a state as well...and more often does. Applying Occham's razor, he's just one seriously deluded and isolated person,
  • that the man is certifiable? You have a whacked out coke head in the white house. With the kind of background that this family has, there can be no other explanation. He is the "worthless, idiot son-in-law" who needed a job. So I guess, kudos to the machine that got him there. There can be no doubt, the man is demented. And Cheney? He's damn scary. Impeachment insurance.
