"Obama, by all accounts, was a habitual drug user in high school. He tried cocaine, he admits in Dreams From My Father; he “tried drugs enthusiastically.” The Chicago Tribune reported back in 2007 that Obama thanked the “Choom Gang” in his high school yearbook; “chooming” was Hawaiian slang for smoking pot. The Honolulu Advertiser reported that Obama’s senior portrait “prominently displayed … A package of ‘Zig-Zag’ rolling papers and a matchbook.”

"In his memoir, Obama talked about routinely getting high."

"During his high school years, Obama hung out with communist radical Frank Marshall Davis; in 2007, the Los Angeles Times reported that during his high school days, “he felt the first stirrings of anger toward whites. He says he also delved into black nationalism.” He was “offended or even enraged when white classmates adopted black street slang or revealed their underlying consciousness of his race by going out of their way to tell him how much they admired a black musician or athlete.”


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.

So what? I'd rather have that in a president than have a high school bully like Mitt Romney.

Bah..smoking pot is the least of your worries. There are very few who probably NEVER tried it.

There ya go folks; a bully is worse than a drug user. Maybe Mitt was beating up drug dealers too. Just about any spin will do on this one. Obama gets another pass for past transgressions while Mitt will be dragged through the coals for everything. Soon we'll hear Romney was a habitual jaywalker, gasp!

I'd rather have a president who will stand his ground and be strong in the world political scene. Someone who won't back down from China, N Korea, and Iran. Who won't make back door deals with Russia and smart enough to stay off camera when making rediculous "forward looking" promises. A president who knows how to run a business and balance a ledger.

How incredibly sad is that?



I guess the democraps have forgotten how they still call Bush and Rush drunks and druggies.

It doesn't matter in the long run. Obama will be gone before long, living somewhere far, far from the white house.

And because the someone dug up a stupid, irrelevant high school story on Romney, now it's time for a stupid, irrelevant high school story about Obama. I give up

One stupid irrelevant story deserves another. Balance is balance after all.

Ah yes, not just a stupid story for a stupid story! Obama is THE one president with the most hidden past. To start digging into HIS past, be it high school, college or diapers is to dig where the establishment fears us digging. If EVER....oh, someone like Reuters grows a pair and starts publicizing what they find in digging into BO's past.....

we're likely to start having revelations that may unseat a president.
