Counterpunch: IS BUSH SANE ?? When Denial GoesPathological

As Iraq spirals completely out of control and the movement to impeach Dubya Bush grows stronger, even conservatives such as Paul Craig Roberts question the sanity of the President in this weekend's edition of Counterpunch.

* Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration. He was Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal editorial page and Contributing Editor of National Review. He is coauthor of The Tyranny of Good Intentions. He can be reached at:

When Denial Goes Pathological

Is President Bush Sane?


Tens of millions of Americans want President George W. Bush to be impeached for the lies and deceit he used to launch an illegal war and for violating his oath of office to uphold the US Constitution.

Millions of other Americans want Bush turned over to the war crimes tribunal at the Hague. The true fate that awaits Bush is psychiatric incarceration.

The president of the United States is so deep into denial that he is no longer among the sane.

Delusion still rules Bush three weeks after the American people repudiated him and his catastrophic war in elections that delivered both House and Senate to the Democrats in the hope that control over Congress would give the opposition party the strength to oppose the mad occupant of the White House.

I wonder what Mr. Roberts take was on his former boss. Certainly he must be aware that the same gang of neo-conservative Reaganites comprise much of the current Bush war cabinet. I would argue that they perpetrated just as much unsavoury deeds under Reagan as they did under Bush. It was Reagan who gave Saddam the means to prosecute the lengthy war with Iran that killed close to a million. Then add to the resume Grenada, Panama, Nicaragua, El Savador, Honduras, Iran-Contra, Afghan mujahideen (Bin Laden)... Reagan was no slouch.

While Mr Roberts rails against Bush's EXECUTION and INCOMPETENCY, it is INTENT that people have trouble with. And on intent, his old boss wasn't all that different.

No, his ex-boss was not all that different.
