Kucinich Questions Bush’s Mental Health Over Iran

Well, on this Dennis is not alone.......of course the odds him seeking mental health care are less than the odds he'll be impeached, but I'm glad he's questioning this. Bush, a not recovered drug and alcohol addict, is acting out a monster case of "dry drunk" rage, perhaps? Maybe at least AA or NA? Imagining him at an AA meeting is an interesting thought. "Hi, I'm George and I'm an alcoholic". hmmmmmmm

WASHINGTON - Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich on Tuesday mockingly questioned President George W. Bush’s mental health for saying Iran’s nuclear ambitions might trigger World War III.

“I seriously believe we have to start asking questions about his mental health,” Kucinich, a quirky, long-shot candidate in the race for his party’s presidential nomination in the November, 2008 election. “There’s something wrong. He does not seem to understand his words have real impact.”

Kucinich spoke to the editorial board of The Philadelphia Inquirer ahead of a Democratic debate in Philadelphia.

Bush told a news conference two weeks ago: “I’ve told people that if you’re interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them (Iran) from having the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon.”

Kucinich, a member of the U.S. Congress from Ohio, has tried in the past to convince his colleagues to impeach both Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, to no avail.

He told The Inquirer he did not believe his remarks about Bush’s mental stability were irresponsible.

“You cannot be a president of the United States who’s wanton in his expression of violence,” Kucinich said. “There’s a lot of people who need care. He might be one of them. If there isn’t something wrong with him, then there’s something wrong with us. This, to me, is a very serious question.”

I have to respectfully disagree with Mr. Kucinich on this one. Bush definitely appears to be mentally ill, but I don't think Iran is the proof. War against Iran would be just one more example of BushCo's shameless pursuit of more power and profit at the expense of the common person while continuing to undermine the U.S. constitution. Of course, that greed and lust for power are definitely signs of someone who has, um... issues.

Yes, he does have a lot of.....issues.

Interestingly for me, though, these comments by Kucinich help me to remember that Bush is a deeply flawed, wounded human being. Unfortunately, he is pouring out his personal shit on the world and a lot of people are suffering and dying. As a Quaker, I believe that there is that of God in everyone. But as always, Bush shakes that belief down to the roots.......
