James F. Campbell:

How about "e) you didn't need drugs because you had sufficient intelligence and curiosity to keep you otherwise occupied"?


or F) you don't consider the intoxicants you have ingested to be drugs because of an arbitrary and goofy distinction

unless you've made it to this point in your life w/out having a beer, of course. in which case, it's your consciousness, you've got the right to do with it as you want - thing is, so does everybody else.

I can only imagine how consistently frustrating it must be for conservatives that stuff Obama has openly admitted to is the best dirt they can dig up on him. There has to be *something* there! The very fact they can't find anything is proof positive that something well-hidden exists! (ref. yesterday's PDF lesson).

Also, incendi might consider how it tends to be the super-sheltered and uptight who end up drawn to illicit behavior, the whole Preacher's Daughter syndrome. Having come from an very liberal family I never had any interest in drugs largely because there was nothing to rebel against. Don't mysticize drugs (or guns, or sex, etc etc) and kids won't be mesmerized by the mystery.

acefox1: I don't drink, don't smoke and don't do drugs. Never have, never will.

That being said this attack is so pants-on-the-head retarded I can't believe professional political operatives are running things for the GOP and Romney's campaign.

I personally don't care what you sucked, drank, snorted or injected in the past. As long as you aren't driving a car, flying a plane, performing surgery or wearing the uniform you can be as high or bombed as you want when you are at home and off the clock.

Watching Romney flail around like this is like the end of a chess game. Every time he tries a different tactic he moves into check.

Obama used drugs as a college kid?

Who cares, Romney tortured a class-mate because he thought he was gay and impersonated a cop to bully people he didn't like. (And if you didn't care about what went up W's nose you aren't allowed to suddenly care now that it's a black Democrat in the White House.) CHECK

Obama's reverend said mean things about America?

You really want to bring funky religions into this debate Mitt? CHECK

Obama didn't cause the recession but he's made it worse!

You sure you want to say that when all the data on unemployment and growth clearly shows you are lying? CHECK

Obamacare is EEEEEVVVIIIILLLLLL!!!

Isn't Obamacare pretty much the same plan as the one you championed in Massachusetts when you were Governor there for one term? The one with an individial mandate that they call Romneycare? CHECK

I have business experience as a venture capitalist?

Oh really? Was this when you took over healthy companies, borrowed heavily against their credit, charged these companies huge fees they could never repay and drove them into bankruptcy? While you're at it Mitt, let's have a look at your last 8-10 tax returns and see how successful you were and where your money went? CHECK

Obama is weak on defense and foregin policy!!

Really Mitt? "BinLadenDead.jpg" CHECK


As I read your post, all I could think was this:

Evil Twin Skippy: James F. Campbell: Philip Francis Queeg: The super uptight part seems pretty spot on considering how upset you are about a non-specific post.

Again, it's a stupid assumption about people who don't do drugs. His message is clear: if you haven't done drugs, there must be something wrong with you. It's incredibly offensive.

Let's try another phrase: "I've never masterbated"

Now, if someone tells you that, what goes through your mind?

Actually, I was raised in a religious cult. My family converted to Jehovah's Witnesses when I was 5, but they left later. Though I long since became an atheist, it's been very hard to shake the strict religious attitudes they tried to brainwash me with. One of those attitudes was contempt for other people who aren't us -- and we're not the only social group who teaches that. (I also learned in Alice Miller's psychology books that contempt for others is usually the product of an abusive childhood, which I also had.) I bet I'm not the only one here who has ever looked down on others with contempt.

I've never "ratted someone out" because they used drugs. I'm liberal, and very broadly speaking, I believe that each person has a right to live as they wish, as long as they don't cause harm to others. I'm sorry for what I said earlier in the thread; it was wrong for me to assert that I'm better than you because I haven't used drugs.

Edsel: randomjsa: vernonFL: I heard Obama also knew Rev. Wright

I know my doctor. In as much as I go see him occasionally and chat it up while he figures out what's wrong with me and if I meet him in public we talk.

I don't hang out with him for 20 years, let him perform my wedding, and baptize my children, and then pretend like I had no idea what kind of person he was.

I know my friends that I've had for years. I know precisely what kind of people they are. Apparently Obama can't say the same thing.

Well, people didn't care about the Rev. Wright issue back in 2008.

But setting that aside, somehow I don't think Romney is going to be too eager to push the "his church is weird" attack against Obama anyway.


Or probably because of this thing called the internet people were able to actually go and listen to the sermons that were in question in their entirety, and find out that they weren't anti-American or anti-white, instead of depending on a 30 second sound bite from one to make their decision about him. The non-mouth breathers did this and decided that Wright wasn't an issue for them. The mouth breathers either didn't do this, did this but couldn't understand what he was saying, or didn't care anyway because they hated Obama, and are still derping on about Wright today.

Debeo Summa Credo: If you're so concerned about obfuscating history, were you similarly concerned about Obama's reluctance to release the long form gift certificate?


You're kidding, right?

You really think that asking Romney for his tax returns is the same thing as asking for a long form birth certificate?

What the fark is wrong with your head? Are you not aware that every President in recent history has been asked for their tax history and provided it in ample amounts? Are you aware that only ONE President has ever been asked for their birth certificate to prove they're a citizen?

No... you're not kidding... and you sound like you know your team is going to lose. The desperation in your posts is palpable.

incendi: In this day and age, I'd be more concerned if a candidate claimed that he had never used illegal drugs. I'd be even more concerned if I actually believed him. Smoking a lot of weed and an even occasional toot of coke in your teenage years/early 20's is not a concern. Now, if somebody came out and said, "I shot up heroin on an 8-hour schedule for three years in my mid-twenties", that'd give me a little pause.


I find that offensive, drug-free is a perfectly legitimate lifestyle choice and I'm going to keep on making that choice.

Republicans heavily invested in a goalpost-moving company in January 2009. And until November 2012 they're going to borrow heavily against its credit, drain it of its equity, and then leave it in bankruptcy come January 2013.

Oh jebus cripes that's funny. D'oh!

FWIW I don't think he should have been hounded to provide his birth certificates or gift certificates.

Well, to treat Romney as the guy beholden to special interests and Wall Street money when your chief financial advisers are Geithner, Rubin, and Summers sounds as hypocritical as is possible, since all of those guys were instrumental in the repeal of Glass Steagall, and the lack of regulation of the derivatives market, and they all profited from their position, while the American public got fleeced.
