    Bush's substance abuse problems came to light prior to the apex of his first Presidential contest, so I'd appreciate it if you'd stop alluding to, well, anybody else's alleged issues with drugs in the future.

    I can't say I was aware of it prior to the first election, but I certainly was during. G.W. was alcohol and as I do a little research he swore off it in 1986 and (allegedly) never touched it again. Was that a "habit"? Hm... Now Obama it seemed had his demons with week and coke. Two illegal drugs, whereas well, alcohol technically is legal right? So back to the original point... is that a point against him? I have to say yes, it probably still is. Is it a point against both... yes, I'd have to say it probably is a point against both.

    And don't get me wrong - I'm not alluding to anything. I'm SAYIN' it is.

    Yeah... you didn't answer the question.... just a reminder:

    You can take from that question and the word choice of "who", that the response you should give might possibly, (just a suggestion) have a name attached to it.

    It hit the press in 1999. You'd have to have been living in cave (or maybe in another country) to have missed it.,

    So illegal substances = legal substances. You're perception is much better than reality!

    You said "week and coke," and I assumed you meant to type "weed." Bush did both weed and coke. So they both did the same illegal drugs.

    Ahh... you're mentioning this portion of the Wiki article:

    1. ....several anonymous sources regarding allegations of Bush's cocaine use.
    2. The Doug Wead recordings about marijuana use

    Thing is, Bush's own words about the marijuana was that "what he tried." Not what he was "smoking every day". The coke use has literally zero evidence to back it up. So yeah, I think my original thoughts here still stand... both are a point of concern.

    The standard of living is in the initial stages of changing.
    The change is slow and some don't even realize it. People are screaming at our political leaders and other political liars boost they can change it all. I think everyone ought to brace themselves.

    What does any of this have to do with Bachmann and the Ames straw poll?
