That's not addiction. Sure, he experiemented, but experimentation does NOT equal addiction.

Sure, it can lead to addiction, but that is not the case with Obama.


With Bush, 30 or so years ago he was addicted, not experimenting.

That's usage, not addiction.

It hurts me to think that I couldn't use them for the past three years.

You have to be smart enough to know the difference between dabbling and addiction.

I don't care one bit what a president has done in the past, but addiction is lifelong. I don't care how long you've been recovering, an addict is an addict and doesn't belong in the White House.

2861U2 - So wait, it's OK to forgive Bush for his drug use, and be sad when he leaves office, but you can't tolerate another who used drugs at one point?

Yes, but is it really that much better?

There's a huge difference.

The age thing is a difference, too. Wasn't Obama in his teens and Bush in his 30's?

No, I personally don't care what Obama has done. But the comment that was made implied joy that a drug user was leaving office. And who does everyone here seem to want in office next? A drug user.

Your comment, though, sounds like it was bad to have a president that used drugs, despite your affection for the W.

A sad day indeed.
Well I could make the argument that (unless the right person gets elected) our troops abandon the Iraqi people to get slaughtered, a vacuum is created that will be filled by Iran, Al-Qaeda declares to the world that they beat the United States, taxes and spending go out of control, small businesses are unable to grow, the federal government expands even larger than it is now, and so on.

I wouldn't be surprised if the thermostat in my house becomes the property of the government.
