The media has some funny hangups. There were rumors about George W Bush's past problems with drinking. Some have offered with no evidence that he had a cocaine problem.We had stories on the subject and Bush was asked. The media still has not gotten around to asking Bill Clinton who had the same rumors of coke usage. In fact he has never been seriously questioned about the I smoked but didn't inhale or I did this in the UK lie.
The darling of the media Barak Obama has apparently admitted he used cocaine in High School and Colllege. Now Ducky will point to Rush Limbaugh who is an entertainer and perscription drug abuse is a different subject. Limbaugh is not running for President and Obama is. The truth is that this does not matter to me. Obama's problem are shared by many and is less troublesome than other foibles. Will Hilary cast a stone at Obama in light of her numerous corruption issues? How about Ted from Chapaquidick or the traitor Gomer Kerry? How about joining the KKK in your youth or running a brothel from your townhouse. How about a wife who mysteriously gets a job as a college President and gets paid six figures for questionable campaign work? How about questionable campaign contributions from Budhist Monks? How about using junk science in court rooms to line your pockets or chasing ambulances?
Whatever Obama's problems were they are nowhere near as serious as the majority of Democrats. Let Obama answer a few questions and the subject be finnished. Obama unlike Hilary or Bill does not need or desire the kid glove treatment.
Obama's problems in any rational account are far less serious than his peers. Prior drug use is less offensive than personal corruption or being an ambulance haser. There are plenty of reasons to take issue with Obama, such as his ideas and far left agenda. Obama's personal foibles are far less then that of his peers.
