This is disturbing
John Aravosis at AmericaBlog has located these two complementary stories. First, from the newspaper, The Washington Times:
President Bush feels betrayed by several of his most senior aides and advisors and has severely restricted access to the Oval Office, administration sources say. The president's reclusiveness in the face of relentless public scrutiny of the U.S.-led war in Iraq and White House leaks regarding CIA operative Valerie Plame has become so extreme that Mr. Bush has also reduced contact with his father, former President George H.W. Bush...

Second, from the conservative gossip columnist Matt Drudge:
The sources said Mr. Bush maintains daily contact with only four people: first lady Laura Bush, his mother, Barbara Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Undersecretary of State Karen Hughes. The sources also say that Mr. Bush has stopped talking with his father, except on family occasions.

John sums the two of them up nicely, "Not just worst president ever. But quickly becoming scariest president ever."
