Bush: "I'm sleeping a lot better than people would assume." (w/ graphic)
I've got so much on my mind, and this job is so exciting that it's really hard to settle down and plan the next 10 years of our life.

People's interviewer also mentioned that readers had asked if he takes sleep aids. Bush said generally not, but he does occasionally when he travels.

I must tell you, I'm sleeping a lot better than people would assume, he said.

He said he drinks a couple of cups of coffee in the morning and drinks a lot of water and, of course, no alcohol.

I don't drink alcohol. I can remember when I used to drink, I had trouble sleeping at night, the President said.

2. Alcohol keeps him up at night
but causing the senseless slaughter of thousands and thousands, no effect whatsoever; sleeps like a baby. No wonder he is such a hero amongst conservatives in this country, or as I like to lovingly refer to them as ignorant trash.

3. "This job is so exciting"?
"By the time I'm doing Presidenting, every country in the world will hate us! No other president's been able to say that!"

4. I assume he sleeps the sleep of a man untroubled by his conscience, as he doesn't have one.

34. Bingo
People without consciences have no trouble sleeping, regardless of the evil they've done to others.

5. "The Dead Don't Keep Me Up ...
Edited on Fri Dec-15-06 04:14 PM by emanymton
it's living with the living that driving me batsh!t. And besides, I'll be dead before history gets it right."

I honestly do not care how well shrub sleeps. It is really not about shrub. Really. When shrub has moved on to his undisclosed location after leaving office, I will not think about him or his family.

What will be keeping me up at night is fixing the monumental screw up he and his junta has left behind. May the gods forgive him. I won't!


Bush lied. people died. Media Cheered. ... and the people wept...

7. Hey, Mr. Decider, I knew you had no trouble sleeping at night.
Stop "assuming" what people think. As if you give a flying fig, anyway.

Great graphic. :thumbsup:

11. that cheney child will need a loving physical body to take care of her.
Edited on Fri Dec-15-06 05:10 PM by flordehinojos
why did bush choose to say,"loving soul", over "loving mother" ... i smell some psychological confabulation on the part of Bush...some sort of bunched up arteriovenous mud stopping him from saying, Mary Cheney is going to be a "LOVING MOTHER" to her child.

is he having trouble decipherating who will be mom and who will be dad in that dual mother dyad? was that the wrench preventing him from saying, "she will be a loving MOTHER to her child?"

the decipherator is not decipherating very well these days.

but Bush cut funding to VA hospitals and doesn't fund treatment for post traumatic stress disorder.

17. Sociopaths usually sleep well. Only going long stretches WITHOUT killing
people makes them uneasy.

23. If he is having little trouble sleeping, then that is more than he deserves
Too many people have been put in harm's way on his watch, and for naught.

He should be losing ZZZ's all over the place.

24. The comments on the blog
...cited in the OP - are less than sympathetic to Dubya's sleeping patterns. A good number of them wish the bastard were drinking again.

25. I would think he is drinking but what do I know?
He is definitely medicated on something. So I would really have to say that sleeping isn't the same as passing out, no matter if it's booze or the fanciest prescription drugs around, it's still passing out.

"...you started a war with lies and conducted it like a violent, drunken orangutan."


The graphic is brillant. I began to chuckle and then stopped. The truth is so friggin ugly...

32. No mention of his out-of-control Crack habit
Hey, nobody asked...perhaps a reporter needs to just ask him flat out:

"Mr. President, you have basically ignored the Iraq Study Group report. Is it because you hate anything labeled with the word "study" in it, or sir, are you on Crack?"

Someone needs to ask him.

35. Yes, yes, David Gregory, since he has been apologized to anyway by Snowman,
should ask the question. Can you imagine that press room if someone were to ask?? I'd wait until the last press conference but would definitely ask him if he was on crack much during his presidency (or whatever we're currently calling his time in our house.)

33. I bet he has no trouble sleeping, he can probably send people to their deaths alsleep by now.
After all his executions in Texas and the hundreds of thousands who are dead in Iraq, sleep is probably a slam-dunk.
