BUSH’S BOOZE CRISIS

By JENNIFER LUCE and DON GENTILE

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.”</i>

Yes, this story is from the Enquirer, but after being stung by big dollar libel suits, you’d be surprised at the lengths they go to assure the accuracy of what they print about public figures. This was given to them most likely by a White House figure- perhaps laying the ground for this?

Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President as Acting President.

Could be BS, could be something. Time will tell. Frankly, its a perfect “out” for Bush. I can hear the faithful now…

“But he’s a good man, just sick, thats all…”
