    A User's Guide To Smoking Pot With Barack Obama

    Barry was quite the accomplished marijuana enthusiast back in high school and college. Excerpts from David Maraniss' Barack Obama: The Story dealing with the elaborate drug culture surrounding the president when he attended Punahou School in Honolulu and Occidental College in Los Angeles. He inhaled. A lot.

    I wondered why he appeared so laid back/lazy! Some people smoke to mask the pot smell!

    I don't care about the pot. I do care about what he's doing to my country now.

    The foundation was laid for his future character in those years.

    I care about the pot and what he is doing to my country.

    Shall he get the name President Pothead?

    The article and the pics are quite revealing as to character. Like I said in the other thread, quite a contrast between the zero and Reagan.

    There is another article on ABC News, too.

    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/05/obama-and-his-pot-smoking-choom-gang/

    Absolutely disgusting. And this guy has the "nuclear football briefcase?" How do we know he isn't toking or snorting right there in the Oval Office along with his marxist staff, one big old party from the party man/rock star himself? Scary, quite scary.

    Look what the Dems have done to our nation. Think of it!!

    And some people try to compare Mitt Romney with this trash. Sad.

    Did you folks care about Bush Jr and the coke he did when he was younger? Or how about him being an alcoholic?

    Do you care that Bush never took a casual attitude about it like Obama has in order to get elected all the while sending the feds into California, in a very hypocritical fashion to stop the state approved sale of it?

    Wait a second..when Obama does it we get:

    "The foundation was laid for his future character in those years. "
    and
    "How do we know he isn't toking or snorting right there in the Oval Office...."

    All I'm asking is if Bush Jr's coke and alcohol use also laid a foundation for his future character?

    So the level of casualness determines how much the future character is affected? Is that what you are saying?

    Or are you saying Obama was a casual drug user, while Bush was not casual (which would indicate a heavier drug use)? :laugh: Yes, I'd agree that coke is much less casual than smoking pot. Glad we can agree on that! :thumbs:

    It's layer upon layer upon layer - Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, his cavalier rockstar arrogance while he is supposed to be serving this country, his dividing and conquering pitting class against class, race baiting, his marxist policies---all of it. Do you really want a toker in charge of the nuclear football? Well, you've got it.

    I believe GW Bush loves this country. I believe obama hates this country and everything it ever stood for. And his wife wasn't proud of this country until she got to sponge off of we, the people, she and her mom and friends and expensive multiple vacations while millions of Americans are suffering.

    GW Bush SERVED this country, in the military. Where was the zero? Toking and partying somewhere getting high at the feet of Bill Ayers. Plotting how to destroy this country.

    GW Bush records were open to everyone and the liberal press scrutinized every jot and tittle. The zero is a closed book, no official records of anything, like a college transcript or a thesis, a community organizer who "just appeared out of nowhere", who believes in stabbing skulls of the unborn before yanking them out of the wound (PBA). GW Bush is pro-life.

    You never heard of big party animals at GSA or Secret Service under GW's watch. Maybe it was hidden, but you never heard of these scandals back then. But when we have a party animal/rock star at the top, what can we expect from the underlings?

    Your comparison is like comparing apples and meat (not even apples and oranges).

    :BangHead: Ooookkkayyyy....let me break this down for you. There is no comparison between the two. Doing so is inappropriate because there is a vast difference between the attitude of Obama today and Bush. Obama, today, is very casual about drug use, which coming from the leader of the free world is shameful and not much different than Clinton and his treatment of infidelity. These are not men to follow or allow to be an influence on our children.

    These things cannot be said of Bush.

    Thanks for all the off topic info. You are really good at going on a rant about things that don't pertain the the topic at hand. Just so you remember, we are talking about drug use, not college transcripts, or military service (it is funny that you try and say that Bush Jr served though...his service was a joke).

    But I guess what it all boils down to is that it's bad that Obama smoked some pot and it makes him evil. Because he smoked pot in his youth we get stuff like, "Do you really want a toker in charge of the nuclear football?"

    But, it's perfectly acceptable for Bush Jr. to have done cocaine, because you like him. If we like someone we are supposed to overlook their faults and not say things like, "Do you really want a coke head in charge of the nuclear football?"

    But we've been told on this thread and drug use as a youth shapes the future character of a man. Does that not apply to Bush Jr?

    Obama is evil, but not because he smoked pot in his youth.

    He quit coke early and drinking late after his wife gave an ultimatum. he did neither in the White House. Can you say the same about Obama who was also an admitted coke head in his younger years?

    Obama is also a ardent abortionist. While in the iIllinois State Senate he fought to kill a bill that would require medical treatment for live birth during an attempted abortion. Yet here you are defending this Marxist baby killer. Bush is gone, the big problem now is Obama, who was also an admitted coke user!

    That still doesn't address my original question. Let me further simplify the question:

    Does drug use in one's use speak to the future character of a man (or woman)?

    Please show me where I have defended Obama? I've simply asked if the same standards apply to Bush (or anyone else for that matter).
