Flashback: Obama

Obviously, a President's history of repeated illegal activity and racist anger as well as close ties to radicals, socialists and even communists presents cause for concern. Yet, these things were glossed over during Obama's first run. But, now that we have seen him in action over the past four years, I think many people will be taking a long, hard, serious look at where this guy came from and from where came his dangerous ideology upon which he is steering this country.
I guess you want to select Presidents based on who was the worst teenager.

If that is the level of your intellect then knock yourself out.

Frankly I'd rather have a President that had a variety of experiences and was open to a variety of ideas rather then one that was pre-programmed by the business establishment of this country and can't take accept ideas from a variety of sources unless they think EXACTLY like he does.

But I guess you must think Obama's innocent harassment of a female even though he was only 10 belies the fact that Obama is a sociopathic rapist-in-waitng, right? (For all readers, I of course do not think this, but the logical conclusion I've reached is that hotair probably does. Unless, of course, they are viewing this issue through the lens of extreme partisanship. I guess we'll have to wait for him or her to tell us which it is).
Your bias may be clouding your reasoning ability. If you don't see how the two incidents are not in any way similar, then I can't help you.

Obama is star struck & has raised over 100 million so far for his campaign. He loves the attention & once he leaves office it will all pretty much go away. Obama also doesnt take criticism well. Billy crystal was at clooneys $40,000.00 a plate dinner & he was rude to tmz. I say its time for a change.

Would you rather have a man who does not touch alcohol(let alone drugs) as the Commander in Chief or keep someone in that position who enthusastically admits using both marijuana and cocaine?

The choice is clear - vote for Mitt Romney on November 6.

Are you for real? Smoking pot in high school is what constitutes an issue for you? If I had one cent for every high school kid that tried or smoked pot, I'd be way richer than Romney.

You are really scraping the bottom of the barrel with the rest of your post.

BTW...If anyone is going to smoke pot, Hawaii really is the best place to do it...fine quality. I might also add that aside from Cannabis being a recreational drug, it really does provoke deep and intense thinking and has been used to enhance creativity. Many celebrated and creative people have indulged in drugs in one way or another and it does not always lead to becoming a drug addict. If you or anyone you know has ever read and enjoyed Alice in Wonderland...you can most likely thank an hallucinogenic drug for that one.

LOL. So we should vote for Romney because Obama was rude to TMZ? Now that's a new one. Congratulations.

Clinton - I smoked but did not inhale.

Obama - I smoked and inhaled deeply.
