I think yes. Ok, so a person can say he only has six weeks left on the job so let him get drunk. But when I think of all we've put up with, you'd think he could wait to get back to Crawford before pouring a stiff one...

Bush Drinking Again? Downs "Pisco Sour" In Peru
Frankly, I believe he has been perpetually drunk for 8 years. I recall several "accidents" that resulted in facial bruising, particularly during his first term. In light of the fact that under the guise of the ghost president (aka Cheney) he has pretty much done everything in his power to destroy the world, I'd like to believe he was in a drunken stupor for 8 years. To think otherwise would be an insult to those in mental institutions around the globe.

Sorry, just wee bit difference here. Drunks' brains are impaired. They don't think straight. They make poor decisions and can be impulsive. Smokers do not fall into this category.

Yeah, drunken stupor could explain some of it away. I've seen videos of him drinking alcohol, so I am sure you are right.

Last I heard, drinking was legal.

If the President wishes to have a drink - so be it.

The "president" just happens to have a substance abuse history, which means he is not your everyday social drinker. Consequently, and for the good of our country, he should not indulge. Period.
