Looks like the President is being bad again!!! http://www.nationalenquirer.com/celebrity/63426 :lol:
Talk about reliable sources (NOT)!
And if Fox reported it...reliable? But I really doubt he's slipped. Too many people watching.
haha....I think this goes in the laughter section...."It's Jim Beam or me".
Yeah, especially since I would think that GWB would have better taste in whiskey, which is another reason to suspect the veracity of the article.
(Not to say Jim Beam isn't good, but there are many other better one's on the market)
Not if one of the daughters supplied it, not knowing any better (slap my face).
herm... and here i am thinking bush has been drinking the entire time...
come on now, Bush dosen't drink...............he snorts cocain remember. Duhhh
that and the children eating thing...........but those are his only vices
That was a shot of blood from a stolen baby. Its all a coverup, trying to get people to think its just booze. :lol:
Where's maindish been hiding?? I would think a post like this would drive him out of hibernation
I'll see if I can fill in, in his absence.....
You wanna talk about drinking?
What about Ted "Chappaquiddick" Kennedy
That guy's sooooooooo fat....his a@@ has its own area code.
When Ted Kennedy lies around the house....he REALLY lies around the house!
Remind me again, why I should vote for the dumb-a-craps?
Not bad. You forgot to call Michael Moore "Captain Neckfat".
Didn't think about Bush and the bottle. But it does make sense. So many people I know found Jesus after going on the wagon. I think it is a strong part of the AA step program to be brainwashed with Jesus substitution. Couple of friends I had went through the program, one voluntary and the other forced by the court. The one who did it voluntarily was really becomming obnoxious with the new "I found Jesus personality." No one could carry on a conversation with him without him quoting scripture to back up everything he said. Almost like jonstad does with Google links. One day I had about enough and begged him to go back to drinking because he was a much nicer person before he found Jesus. Then I got a Bible lesson and a half from him. I walked away and never saw him again. The other friend who was being mentored by him through AA is still in touch although he moved out of town. He claims to be off the juice for 5 years now but I don't believe him. He told me that the other guy went back on the bottle when he lost his job through bothering his coworkers about being saved etc. Next he got a DUI and went to prison. So- may I say that Bush's propensity for Jesus etc is an over reaction to the booze abstinence.
I used to drink like a fish but one day I looked in the mirror and didn't like what I saw it was doing to me. I quit cold turkey for over 25 years. Today I have a half glass of red wine about 4 days per week with evening dinner. I've been told by the doctor and my daughter who's new hobby is neutrition that it is good for me. I know she's right because liquor in moderation was always good to me. Thank Jesus I learned how to control it. yuk yuk!
Thank Jesus indeed.
BTW, were YOU a nicer person when you drank? Nick was nicer when he was smoking. But I still don't want him to start again.
Well I was a strange drunk by lots of standards. You see I tried to be in control of it. I only drank at home in the evenings after dinner. Never out in public, bars or restaurants. And I drank until I fell asleep. After two years of this I quit as I said and walked out from in front of the mirror and poured a bar load of bottles down the sink drain. with running water of course as I know better than to pour flammables down the drain. Then I hauled my small portable bar cabinet out to the trash. That's exactly how it happened. I guess I wasn't a serious drunk because I didn't get the DT's and after 3 weeks of drying out I tried to test a beer and couldn't stand the smell. Poured the can of beer down the drain too.
Anyway, I just saw Bush talk briefly from Austin and all I can say is we may have to get ready for President Cheney if he doesn't soon dry out. He was hoarse and extremely puffy-eyed. He looked seriously ill. Maybe now I'm looking for the signs but still let me know what you think. He is in trouble. He is down and I hope the leadership he has put in place can pick up the slack. Maybe he should ask Teddy how he does it? But then Kennedy doesn't take any responsibility, ever.
But Teddy is not the prez, and is answerable only to his state. I didn't vote for or against him and treat him like the other 97 Senators who are not my problem. My Senators, and President, on the other hand are accountable to me and I pay attention to their views, performance, and style. Bush has lost his swagger and I can't help but wonder why.
We get the weirdest sources in here. I don't agree with everything the president does but I would need a lot more credible source than the Enquirer before I started to worry about his drinking. The enquirer will print anything to sell papers.
BTW due to the nature of what AA is statistics on membership are always questionable. However it is estimated that it has about 2 million members in the US. The DC area alone has at least 170 separate meetings in a week. The individual groups are only loosely affiliated with another. Drawing any conclusions about the organization or the membership as a whole based on esperiences with 2 members is probably not a good idea.
You know what though Chief? I'm not making any judgment calls on this, but when I did a search there are a LOT of sources out there saying this or something similar. Many of them are quoting this article, but not all of them.
i would have to see something far more credible than that rag to warrant concern.
I went to an AA social meeting in Minneapolis one time (not as a member) with a customer of mine that I had engineered an album (one of those flat black things with a long groove on each side) for. He wanted to introduce me to other members who might have been interested in doing a similar project. It was an interesting evening. I am sure that AA has helped the vast majority of the people there, but I could barely stand to stay in the room. You could almost cut the air with a knife there was so much smoke in the room. Nearly everyone was walking around with a cigarette in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other. Nothing came of the introductions, but over time my customer sold all 500 albums that he ordered, mostly to AA members. Minnesota was one of the first states to clamp down on indoor smoking, I wonder if AA buildings are exempt as private organizations. I think that having to eliminate smoking in an AA facility could result in a significant decline in membership.
