Bush insists that sunny optimism is not a sign of insanity

As pressure mounts to explain sunny pronouncements on Iraq and the economy when contrary opinions and information are discarded, President Bush told reporters that this is not a dangerous sign of diminished faculties and described how sunny optimism is a characteristic of strength, not insanity. “Like Hannibal Lecter. Now use him, for example, as a character with insanity. How optimistic was he? He always had a hunger for people, right? Eating people, thought a regular steak wasn’t a lot of…wasn’t a satisfying meal, right? Or the John Wayne Gacy thing. No, I prefer to believe in the endless hope and optimism I get from the good book, and the love and support of my followers, and even the notes I get from the people at the Scientology Church from time to time. Amazing letters of support.”

Many of the questions are coming Bush’s way in the wake of recent episodes focused on his intelligence on MSNBC’s “Scarborough Country,” an early Newsweek cover story, “Bush in a Bubble,” and the latest TIME cover story, “Is the President Batshit Insane?”
