The President is mad, really, really mad according to the NY Daily News. He and Laura thought things were going well after they exploited "September the 11th" again. Now, between the Foley Republican child sex predator scandal and the Woodward book "State of Denial," W is having a melt-down:
Now, however, friends, aides and close political allies tell the Daily News Bush is furious with his own side for helping create a political downdraft that has blunted his momentum and endangered GOP prospects for keeping control of Congress next month.The Daily News reports that "steam coming out of [Bush's] ears" over the Foley scandal.
Some of his anger is directed at former aides who helped Watergate journalist Bob Woodward paint a lurid portrait of a dysfunctional, chaotic administration in his new book, "State of Denial."
In the obsessively private Bush clan, talking out of school is the ultimate act of disloyalty, and Bush feels betrayed from within.
"He's ticked off big-time," said a well-informed source, "even if what they said was the truth."
Our president sounds like he is coming unglued.
Hat tip to Taegan at Political Wire for this one...it's good.
