Is Bush falling apart?

Clearly his administration is but to what extent is the President personally losing it? Capitol Hill Blue has been reporting on the President's alleged instability for some time now, citing anonymous sources. Are they right? Here are excerpts from their latest:

Government by Temper Tantrum

Capitol Hill Blue

“He’s out of control,” one White House aide says privately. “There’s no other way to put it. His anger spills over in meetings. He berates anyone who brings him bad news but there's not a lot of good news we can bring the President right now. He calls other Republicans 'motherfucking traitors' and it is becoming more and more of a challenge to keep that anger from showing in public.”

Consider this from Andrew Stephan of The Observer in London:

“The 43rd US President has always had a much-publicized knack for mangled syntax, but now George Bush often searches an agonizingly long time, sometimes in vain, for the right words. His mind simply blanks out at crucial times. He is prone, I am told, to foul-mouthed temper tantrums in the White House. His handlers now rarely allow him to speak an unscripted word in public,”

Stephan wrote that analysis on October 17, 2004, two weeks before last years’s election. In the same article he reported:

“A senior Republican, experienced and wise in the ways of Washington, told me last Friday that he does not necessarily accept that Bush is unstable, but what is clear, he added, is that he is now manifestly unfit to be President.”

That was nearly year ago. Since then the situation has only gotten worse.
