Is Bush on mind-altering drugs?
Have you noticed in his latest appearances that Bush is grinning at the least appropriate times. Sometimes it seems that he is trying to supress a grin while he's addressing serious questions. Is he trying to send a signal that he's not concerned, or is he on some sort of "happy pill". Either way, it looks like he's not taking these issues seriously.
Has anybody else noticed this or is it just me?

2. Could be that, but as well
it could be Karen whispering in his ear "Smile, SMILE!" so he smiles like a trained dog when commanded, which can be at most inappropriate moments.

3. It's hard not to notice. They changed his meds. He's been having a
breakdown for a while, as we all saw during his address following the 9/11 Commission and during the debates.

I'd be more alarmed if he was acting this way without drugs. :eyes:

4. Not just grinning...
...he's laughing as if everything he says is so funny. And the idiot press laugh with him. Well...maybe they are laughing at him...who knows.

Yesterday's press conference with Aust. PM. When asked a question he didn't want to answer, Bush looked at the PM and said "Do you speak French?" Then started laughing as if he'd said something really funny. I don't get it...how was that funny????

7. That is bizarre
Did the PM laugh, or did he look confused and uncomfortable?

9. What shocked me was what he said earlier yesterday
"I am confident with the process (the plame investigation)
and I know that reassures the American people." (or something along those lines.)

10. Bruxism -- Teeth Grinding
Interesting. Your theory is supported by the Bruxism information I dug up in another thread.

"In some cases, bruxism isn't caused by stress or dental problems. It can be a complication of another disorder, such as Huntington's disease or Parkinson's disease. It can also be an uncommon side effect of some psychiatric medications including antidepressants."

It also says, however, that:

"Caffeine, nicotine and other drugs. Using caffeine, tobacco, cocaine or amphetamines seems to increase the risk of bruxism."

How much coffee would this man need to take to induce this sort of phenomenon?

Haldol Injectable. One shot keeps you good for the whole month.

It also causes Tardive Dyskenesia.
