The National Enquirer says Bush is drinking again

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

I know, it's from the National Enquirer.

But you know what, they're not the Weekly World News (the paper that reports about space aliens eating your baby). Yes, the Enquirer has had to pay a few hefty court settlements (or at least one I recall), and they do pay if and when they're wrong, but while it's a sensational publication, to be sure, their stories aren't necessarily wrong. Thus, I'm posting this. Let people read the facts and decide for themselves.

But at this time in our nation's history we can't afford for this story to be true, and that's another reason I'm posting this because you know the MSM, if they knew this was true, would never report it. We need to get some straight answers about this from the White House.

Faced with the biggest crisis of his political life, President Bush has hit the bottle again, The National Enquirer can reveal.

Bush, who said he quit drinking the morning after his 40th birthday, has started boozing amid the Katrina catastrophe.

Family sources have told how the 59-year-old president was caught by First Lady Laura downing a shot of booze at their family ranch in Crawford, Texas, when he learned of the hurricane disaster.

His worried wife yelled at him: "Stop, George."....

A Washington source said: "The sad fact is that he has been sneaking drinks for weeks now. Laura may have only just caught him — but the word is his drinking has been going on for a while in the capital. He's been in a pressure cooker for months.

"The war in Iraq, the loss of American lives, has deeply affected him. He takes every soldier's life personally. It has left him emotionally drained.

The result is he's taking drinks here and there, likely in private, to cope. "And now with the worst domestic crisis in his administration over Katrina, you pray his drinking doesn't go out of control."

Another source said: "I'm only surprised to hear that he hadn't taken a shot sooner. Before Katrina, he was at his wit's end. I've known him for years. He's been a good ol' Texas boy forever. George had a drinking problem for years that most professionals would say needed therapy. He doesn't believe in it [therapy], he never got it. He drank his way through his youth, through college and well into his thirties. Everyone's drinking around him."

Another source said: "A family member told me they fear George is 'falling apart.' The First Lady has been assigned the job of gatekeeper."
