Me Thinks The Job Is getting To Him?

Yesterday George out did himself. Instead of the righteous indignation I think, or better yet I HOPE, he was shooting for, Shrub came off more as unhinged. This is a developing and disturbing pattern in the presidents behavior as of late. Prompting right wingers, like Scarborough, to ask the nation "Is The Bush an Idiot?" (link to video).

Crooks and Liars (link) has video of yesterday's meltdown as well as a transcript. The Washington Post (link) has aditional video from an August 19, 2006 press conference were Shrub kinda... well ... looses track of what the hell he is talking about!

Bush: The terrorists have lost a sponsor in Iraq. And no terrorist networks will ever gain weapons of mass destruction from Saddam Hussein's regime.
September 2003, televised address:

Bush: We've learned that Iraq has trained al-Qaeda members in bomb-making and poisons and deadly gases. And we know that after 11 September, Saddam Hussein's regime gleefully celebrated the terrorist attacks on America.

The BBC from 09/18/2003 has a parade of quotes from Shrub himself either directly linking or heavily suggesting that Iraq and Al-Qaeda were tied at the hip. (Link)
