  Bush Using Drugs to Control Depression, Erratic Behavior

  President George W. Bush is taking powerful anti-depressant drugs to control
  his erratic behavior, depression and paranoia, Capitol Hill Blue has
  learned.

  The prescription drugs, administered by Col. Richard J. Tubb, the White
  House physician, can impair the President's mental faculties and decrease
  both his physical capabilities and his ability to respond to a crisis,
  administration aides admit privately.

  ¯It's a double-edged sword,- says one aide. ¯We can't have him flying off
  the handle at the slightest provocation but we also need a President who is
  alert mentally.-

  Angry Bush walked away from reporter's questions.
  Tubb prescribed the anti-depressants after a clearly-upset Bush stormed off
  stage on July 8, refusing to answer reporters' questions about his
  relationship with indicted Enron executive Kenneth J. Lay.

  ¯Keep those motherfuckers away from me,- he screamed at an aide backstage.
  ¯If you can't, I'll find someone who can.-


  Bush's mental stability has become the topic of Washington whispers in
  recent months. Capitol Hill Blue first reported on June 4 about increasing
  concern among White House aides over the President's wide mood swings and
  obscene outbursts.

  Although GOP loyalists dismissed the reports an anti-Bush propaganda, the
  reports were later confirmed by prominent George Washington University
  psychiatrist Dr. Justin Frank in his book Bush on the Couch: Inside the Mind
  of the President. Dr. Frank diagnosed the President as a ¯paranoid
  meglomaniac- and ¯untreated alcoholic- whose ¯lifelong streak of sadism,
  ranging from childhood pranks (using firecrackers to explode frogs) to
  insulting journalists, gloating over state executions and pumping his hand
  gleefully before the bombing of Baghdad- showcase Bush's instabilities.

  ©¯I was really very unsettled by him and I started watching everything he did
  and reading what he wrote and watching him on videotape. I felt he was
  disturbed,- Dr. Frank said. ¯He fits the profile of a former drinker whose
  alcoholism has been arrested but not treated.-


  Dr. Frank's conclusions have been praised by other prominent psychiatrists,
  including Dr. James Grotstein, Professor at UCLA Medical Center, and Dr.
  Irvin Yalom, MD, Professor Emeritus at Stanford University Medical School.

  The doctors also worry about the wisdom of giving powerful anti-depressant
  drugs to a person with a history of chemical dependency. Bush is an admitted
  alcoholic, although he never sought treatment in a formal program, and
  stories about his cocaine use as a younger man haunted his campaigns for
  Texas governor and his first campaign for President.

  ¯President Bush is an untreated alcoholic with paranoid and megalomaniac
  tendencies,- Dr. Frank adds.

  The White House did not return phone calls seeking comment on this article.

  Although the exact drugs Bush takes to control his depression and behavior
  are not known, White House sources say they are ¯powerful medications-
  designed to bring his erratic actions under control.


  While Col. Tubb regularly releases a synopsis of the President's annual physical, details of
  the President's health and any drugs or treatment he may receive are not
  public record and are guarded zealously by the secretive cadre of aides that
  surround the President.

  Veteran White House watchers say the ability to control information about
  Bush's health, either physical or mental, is similar to Ronald Reagan's
  second term when aides managed to conceal the President's increasing memory
  lapses that signaled the onslaught of Alzheimer's Disease.


  It also brings back memories of Richard Nixon's final days when the
  soon-to-resign President wondered the halls and talked to portraits of
  former Presidents. The stories didn't emerge until after Nixon left office.


  One long-time GOP political consultant who  for obvious reasons  asked not
  to be identified said he is advising his Republican Congressional candidates
  to keep their distance from Bush.

  "We have to face the very real possibility that the President of the United
  States is loony tunes," he says sadly. "That's not good for my candidates,
  it's not good for the party and it's certainly not good for the country."
