Barack Obama: Pot Smoker?

Was Barack Obama a pot smoker when he was in high school? According to a new biography about Obama, he was much more than that. A new book by David Maraniss entitled "Barack Obama: The Story" makes some startling claims about Obama.

The following are a few quotes about Obama from his new book....

#1 A self-selected group of boys at Punahou School who loved basketball and good times called themselves the Choom Gang. Choom is a verb, meaning "to smoke marijuana."

#2 As a member of the Choom Gang, Barry Obama was known for starting a few pot-smoking trends. The first was called "TA," short for "total absorption." To place this in the physical and political context of another young man who would grow up to be president, TA was the antithesis of Bill Clinton's claim that as a Rhodes scholar at Oxford he smoked dope but never inhaled.

#3 Along with TA, Barry popularized the concept of "roof hits": when they were chooming in the car all the windows had to be rolled up so no smoke blew out and went to waste; when the pot was gone, they tilted their heads back and sucked in the last bit of smoke from the ceiling.

#4 When you were with Barry and his pals, if you exhaled precious pakalolo (Hawaiian slang for marijuana, meaning "numbing tobacco") instead of absorbing it fully into your lungs, you were assessed a penalty and your turn was skipped the next time the joint came around. "Wasting good bud smoke was not tolerated," explained one member of the Choom Gang, Tom Topolinski, the Chinese-looking kid with a Polish name who answered to Topo.

#5 [Choom Gang member] Mark Bendix's Volkswagen bus, also known as the Choomwagon. … The other members considered Mark Bendix the glue, he was funny, creative, and uninhibited, with a penchant for Marvel Comics. He also had that VW bus and a house with a pool, a bong, and a Nerf basketball, all enticements for them to slip off midday for a few unauthorized hours of recreation...

As you can imagine, these revelations about Barack Obama being a pot smoker are making news all over the globe.  The following is a Taiwanese animation about all of this that is extremely funny....

Bama sounds like a typical college/high school kid. Doesn't sound like a horrible person to me- plus, for God sakes, it was in his youth. Who HASN'T done these things- would you prefer a Mormon president, replete with mormon plans? in other words: Our prez doesn't sound so horrible. Is he a murderer? Child molester? Bear false witness...? I know of a leader of a nation that promotes those crimes I just spoke of. Why not talk about them- oh yea, doesn't fit into the mainstream agenda.

if you're wondering, i didn't vote for barack. But considering all of the bashing going on lately, hm makes me WONDER that since the same cabal that put him in power now berates him, he MUST be doing something good.
