US democratic presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich
"I seriously believe we have to start asking questions about his mental health," said Kucinich. "There's something wrong. He does not seem to understand his words have real impact."
The democratic candidate who was speaking to the editorial board of The Philadelphia Inquirer on Tuesday added, "You cannot be a president of the United States who's wanton in his expression of violence."
"There's a lot of people who need care. He might be one of them. If there isn't something wrong with him, then there's something wrong with us. This, to me, is a very serious question."
Kucinich, who is a US Congressman from Ohio, has proposed to impeach both Bush and his Vice President Dick Cheney.
Bush had claimed Iran was pursuing nuclear weapons, adding this may lead to World War III. His remarks drew fierce domestic and international criticism.
Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez also condemned Bush's war rhetoric, saying he must be taken to a madhouse.
Tehran has rejected Bush's allegations as baseless, insisting that its nuclear program is solely aimed at peaceful purposes. The UN nuclear watchdog, IAEA, has also confirmed there is no evidence to prove Iran is developing nuclear weaponry.
