Not many of those people have changed their drinking habits in the last 3 years. Which is good, otherwise we'd need zombie Lincoln to save us from the drunk fat slobs.

Since I am a 10 year member here, do I get to be part of Drew's cabinet, or is it already full with Jack, Jim and Jose'?

That first letter sounds like my buddy's letter when he was stationed at some research facility in Antarctica. "Send whiskey, cheat and large amounts, now!!!!"

Realize that for most of history, it was actually healthier to drink liquor than water, given all the bacteria of the day.

He wasn't a drunk president -- he was a presidential drunkard.

This list is a large bucket of fail

" John F. Kennedy. There's no actual proof that JFK was a drinker. But I have an Irish friend named Molly who's one hell of a drinker, and it's led me to believe that certain stereotypes exist because they're just true."

That's some fine journalism there,Lou.

Cocaine too. We've had three Presidents in a row with admitted drug use in their past. Time to withdraw from the War on Drugs.

11..not bad, but Obama established a White House brewery, the first known to do so, so I think we have our dozen.

Drew for President

8. William Howard Taft. ...he was definitely the frat guy ... making sure all of his buddies were getting drunk.


Start a new list.

throughout most of history, beer was drank instead of water because the water was so nasty.

Those...were the good ole days

List fails without Richard M. Nixon.

Perhaps we can dump George W. despite his past excesses with booze and snobbish, perhaps, but the booze didn't help.
 
2012-09-16 04:18:12 PM  
They missed Lyndon Johnson, who used to kill a quart of Cutty Sark and a six--pack of Pearl beer daily, and then drive around drunk as a skunk at 120+ in a Lincoln Continental with a 460 CID V-8 and 4-barrel carb, which would top out over 140.

JFK was not much of a drinker but he was on medication for a wide variety of illnesses, would pester the doctor for an amphetamine tab from time to time, and had Peter Lawford bring him "grass" in the White House.

Washington, Jefferson and Taylor were also known to smoke hemp, and U.S. Grant also served Vin Marinari which contains cocaine, at regular intervals.

Warren G. Harding also stayed drunk for most of his term.

He was still asleep at the wheel.

Lots of speculation that Clinton was drunk when he fell at Greg Norman's house at 1:30 a.m., blowing out his knee.

JFK was never proved to take LSD, but he had an artist girlfriend who used it, and she was murdered under mysterious circumstances shortly after his assasination.
 
2012-09-16 04:23:05 PM  
What about Jimmy Carter? After all, his brother endorsed Billy Beer!
 
2012-09-16 04:25:28 PM  
GWB choked on a pretzel. That doesn't mean he was drunk.

JFK=WTF?
 
2012-09-16 04:26:02 PM  
It wasn't that John Adams was a drunk, it was that the water in 18th century Philadelphia wasn't safe to drink (we didn't get a city water system until about 1800) so you drank alcohol -which was safe- or nothing at all.

IIRC, he took to bringing cider -which was made on his farm- with him as it was cheaper and better than any other option.

And Nixon was a bigger drinker than JFK, who didn't really drink much; he was too messed up on pills.

Of course she was.

Robert Anton Wilson, the counter-culturalist, who had a considerable amount of information and expertise in drugs, claimed that George H.W. Bush Senior's eccentric behaviour and verbal gaffes were consistent with washing down Halcyon with Scotch.

So there's a Bush you can substitute for recovering alkie, Junior. I think substance abuse is pretty much hereditary in the Bush clan, but then, the "risk-takers" and alphas who run this world are pretty much all abusers of something or other, whether it is booze, drugs, adrenaline or Alpha male power. The Kennedy clan has a classic pattern of risk-taking, Clinton's womanizing fits the pattern, and even Reagan's bumbling old grandfather routine masked a man who was so mean-spirited and biatchy that Richard Nixon didn't like him and said so on tape. (You can Google it.)

jmadisonbiii: Lots of speculation that Clinton was drunk when he fell at Greg Norman's house at 1:30 a.m., blowing out his knee.


I have it on fairly good authority that he was. And that wasn't the only time he got drunk during his eight years in office. He's the kind of guy who liked to sit up late and shoot the shiat.

whidbey: GWB choked on a pretzel. That doesn't mean he was drunk.


There were several other instances (notably in Peru) where he was photographed with what appeared to be an alcoholic beverage in his hand. And several times he appeared drunk in public.

To be fair, Richard Nixon didn't like anybody, especially Richard Nixon.

But yeah Reagan had a reputation of being an asshole with few friends.

Oddly, Walter Annenberg liked and supported both of them.

I've heard the same thing from former Capital police and others. Pretty much across the board, everyone hated the Missus, but loved Bill even if they didn't like his politics. Several folks also said if he didn't inhale before he got elected, he sure as hell did after. (not that I have anything against weed smoking... Personally I'd love it if the pot smoking politicians just came clean)

Kind of hard to do when even putting brown mustard on your hamburgers causes a wave of nontroversy.

Yeah and choking on a pretzel kicked his ass.

If I was Bush, being shiatfaced during the whole Presidency would be a more viable excuse than that he did everything sober.

Supposedly, on one occasion he was on the way back from a meeting in the U.S., and stopped in Dublin to meet with the Irish P.M., but was unable to leave his plane because he was "ill". (nudge, wink)
Can you imagine being too drunk to meet with the P.M. of Ireland?

List totally fails without Andrew Johnson, who was hung over at his inauguration.

Grant was more of a binge drinker than a continual drunk as the article implies. Battles were the last place he would be drunk, he tended to drink when absent for long periods from his wife and during periods of calm between battles and he had less to do. Many of the rumors of Grant's drinking actually came from political infighting among Union army generals, particularly one Henry Halleck.
Actual instances of Grant drinking during the Civil War were not that common.

That's actually a pretty cool story if it's true.
