    No evidence Bush was a cokehead like Obama admitted too. He did party in college and guzzle beer like most frat brats but when he matured he grew out of it. Having a wife and kids made him grow up.

    He didn't guzzle beer like a most frat brats, he was an alcoholic. And he constantly changed and quantified his answer about his drug use until, when pressed to answer a question he couldn't risk incriminating himself publicly on, he slammed the door shut altogether. What I find interesting is that you'd really hear an easy lie than a hard truth.

    What IYO defines an alcoholic? Years ago I was at a Champaign brunch with friends when some old tea tottler at the next table said to his wife in a loud voice, " You would really have to be an alcoholic to drink at 10am". We all just laughed at him which was not the response the geezer was looking for. Was that you?

    Um...he admits that he was an alcoholic. This is not news.

    I doubt you know anything about which you speak. It's just another opportunity to insult Obama.

    Ummm....have that quote handy? I heard he admitted he felt drinking was having a negative impact on his life so he quit which I think is admirable.

    A charismatic partier since his school days, Bush liked to drink what he called the four Bs – beer, bourbon and B&B; But he had begun to realize that his drinking was jeopardizing his relationships, his career and his health. Although friends say Bush did not drink daily or during daylight hours, even those closest to him acknowledge privately that if not clinically an alcoholic, Bush sometimes came close to the line. Sometimes he would embarrass himself; more often, he didn't know how to stop.

    "Once he got started, he couldn't, didn't shut it off," said Bush's friend Don Evans. "He didn't have the discipline."

    Bush himself acknowledged in a recent interview: "I realized that alcohol was beginning to crowd out my energies and could crowd, eventually, my affections for other people. . . . When you're drinking, it can be an incredibly selfish act."

    That's called alcoholism. Keep reading.
    Bush also shared his personal struggle with alcohol, telling Lauer, "It became a love."

    Though he was never "chemically addicted," he admits his desire to drink "began to compete for my love with my wife, and my daughters."

    Alcoholism. He avoids the word as hard as he can, but he can't outrun the description of it. Obama has his own demon: cigarettes. And that's no laughing matter either -- it was a bitch for me to quit those things.

    As I thought,your assertion that Bush admitted to being an alcoholic was false and as I said obama admitted to using cocaine. Alcohol is legal coke is not and now we have a pres who was an admitted drug user .Comparing him to Bush is like comparing a guy that blows through a stop sign at 60MPH to a guy that rolls through looking both ways. Give it up.

    Are we really arguing whether G.W. Bush was an alcoholic and coke head? Of course he was. He probably still is, and obviously he was while he was president.
