The almost-divorce thing is well known. They've both talked about it.

But did Michelle admit to being pressured to stay by the Chicago Democrats? After all, that is what Huckabee on FOX is saying - you know, that station that does serious reporting and not politically motivated gossip?

Even when it's dealing cocaine?

I'm talking about for anyone, that's kind of a biggie.

Oh, like I said, it's stupid, no question. Massively stupid (and, as properly noted, illegal). IF it's true.

But unless he was part of some massive drug operation ring or something, then I'd say we should chalk it up to a really dumb thing he did, and thankfully he wised up, stopped and moved on from that crap eons ago (if he were still doing it NOW then yeah, I would definitely say it's particularly worthy of concern). That's all. Besides that, as noted, him using cocaine wasn't much of a secret, so if people think someone who uses drugs also deals them would be a "shocking" news story, I would say, "Eh, no, not really."

I just don't understand political smear tactics....on either side.

If I were running for office I would NEVER smear the other side - that would only make ME look bad.
I would lay out my campaign, never make promises I couldn't keep, and run a totally honest and open campaign without having to dig up dirt on anyone else.

If I have to resort to smear tactics to get myself elected then that doesn't say much about me.

I wish both sides would just stick to trying to make America (and the world) a better place to live and leave each other alone.

Particularly if "dealing cocaine" turns out to mean selling half a gram to a friend this one time.

It would be funny though if the surprise was that Obama sold Biden cocaine just hours before the vice presidential debate. : wink:

If Obama was dealing coke, that's a pretty big deal.

If he and Michelle almost broke up but stayed together for political means, well, then he's a politician. Which we already know... I'm pretty sure the whole "Obama's a new kinda politician/hope" thing died a long time ago. He's no different from anyone else.

If anything.... Trump dropping the divorce papers could help Obama... making him look sympathetic against a meaningless attack by a giant douche.

I knew several people at college who sold narcotics on campus. Not heroin, but cannabis, LSD and coke. They certainly weren't Columbian drug barons, they just made a few hundred bucks on the side now and then. I'm still in touch with those guys. One is a university lecturer (and now a world renowned researcher on autism), one is the head if an NGO and the other is a medical doctor with the airforce. If their employers knew of their college activities, it would not affect them one iota - they are all ultra responsible adults and proverbial pillars of society. Quite a few highly intelligent people commit misdemeanours at college, whether it's dealing drugs or hacking into computers. I don't think Obama has anything to worry about.

According to one local news report here Gloria Allred is at a courthouse in MA. She's trying to get documents relating to the divorce of Tom Stenberg-cofounder of Staples. She claims they contain damaging info about Romney.

Romney helped to "rescue" Staples when he was at Bain.

And Romney voters won't care. This is all a waste.

Trump's surprise? He will give $5 million to charity if Obama gives him his school records.

Seriously.
