(SKY News June 14) –– Poor George W. Bush.
The US president broke down in tears during an interview on The Today Show and said he was an "emotional wreck".
Bush, who's serving his second term, blamed media reports about his marriage and criticism of his governing skills for the upset.
He also said that constant attention from the press was a factor in his emotional crisis.
Denying rumors that he and First Lady Laura are heading for divorce, Bush said: "(My marriage is) awesome. She helps me. She has to. I'm (an) emotional wreck right now."
Bush defended his governing skills, which have been under the spotlight since September, when millions drowned in Hurricane Katrina as he was photographed eating lobster.
"I know I'm a good President," he said, insisting that his dad ate lobster while poor people died when he growing up in the White House.
"I can't go anywhere without someone judging me. I did it with my dad. I'd just sit on his lap and eat lobster. We're rich."
"I feel like I'm a target," he sobbed.
