From the June 2004 Idaho Observer:

Commander-in-Chief Bush's erratic behavior worries White House staff

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Capitol Hill Blue publisher Doug Thompson reported June 4, 2004, that President Bush's “erratic behavior and wide mood swings” have his White House aids concerned about the mental health of the nation's commander-in-chief.

“In meetings with top aides and administration officials, the President goes from quoting the Bible in one breath to obscene tantrums against the media, Democrats and others that he classifies as 'enemies of the state.'”

“The mood here is that we're under siege, there's no doubt about it,” Thompson quoted one aide as stating. “In this administration, you don't have to wear a turban or speak Farsi to be an enemy of the United States. All you have to do is disagree with the President.”

Another aide, a veteran of many administrations, reportedly commented that he has not seen a White House this paranoid of enemies under every rock since President Nixon during the Watergate scandal.

According to Thompson, “The White House did not respond to requests for comment on the record.”
