    Obama admitted being a coke head. Dubya was accused of it.

    Yes, and he kept weaseling in his use of wording as to when he didn't use drugs. No categoric denial, just "I didn't use drugs in the last seven years," which is an interesting time frame because that also just happens to be the statute of limitations. Realizing that wasn't enough, he then extended that to the last 25 years. This is actually worse because he's opening up the possibility that he did drugs in his youth and that's no good based on his position on zero tolerance for drug use by minors. And then the final hammer fell...

    Having acknowledged that questions about background checks were legitimate, Bush backed into yet another trap. When nbc's David Bloom noted that current White House appointees must list any drug use since their 18th birthday, Bush suddenly stopped answering and ducked back behind his stone wall. He'd admitted making mistakes; if voters didn't like that answer, he said, "they can go find somebody else to vote for. That's the wonderful thing about democracy."

    So you've got one guy who admits to it, and another who just lies about it.

    HW Bush is a cool old guy. I'm glad he had fun on his 90th. Live life!

    I don't trust anyone who didn't try drugs back then but Obama was a full on dope fiend in a different era, big difference.

    Bush is well known for being a partier, but at least I understand now that it's not the drugs that you have a problem with, just their drug of choice. Bush was very much a huge cokehead, and I could bring up his crippling alcoholism but I'm sure you'd be able to parse why that's preferable. At least you're consistent, Sawyer, I'll give you that.

    Post the excerpt that brought you to this interpretation. I mean, you read the book yourself, right? I'm sure you have a copy you can pull it up right now with.

    ps. What unit?
    I was army and retired after 20 years, 10 years in Southeast Asia, 3 in Germany, 3 as a Drill Sergeant at Ft. Leonard Wood and 3 at Ft. Gordon as NCOIC of Willard Training Area. I was with JUSMAGTHAI in Bangkok, Project 404 in Laos, 1st Signal Bde and MACV in Saigon, 340th ASA and the 11th ACR in Germany.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
