2012: The year Obama is finally getting vetted to at least some degree. I think even the some of the MSM might be starting to understand there’s a good chance Obama will be swept from office soon and so they’re not as troubled by possible repercussions for telling the truth about him.

Think of this as a real-life version of a sequel to Fast Times at Ridgemont High in which Jeff Spicoli ends up getting elected President of the United States:

In his 1995 memoir “Dreams of My Father,” Obama writes about smoking pot almost like Dr. Seuss wrote about eating green eggs and ham. As a high school kid, Obama wrote, he would smoke “in a white classmate’s sparkling new van,” he would smoke “in the dorm room of some brother” and he would smoke “on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids.”

He would smoke it here and there. He would smoke it anywhere.

Now a soon-to-be published biography by David Maraniss entitled “Barack Obama: The Story” gives more detail on Obama’s pot-smoking days, complete with testimonials from young Barry Obama’s high school buddies, a group that went by the name “the Choom Gang.” Choom was slang for smoking marijuana.

Maraniss portrays the teenage Obama as not just a pot smoker, but a pot-smoking innovator.

“As a member of the Choom Gang,” Maraniss writes, “Barry Obama was known for starting a few pot-smoking trends.”

The first Obama-inspired trend: “Total Absorption” or “TA”.

“TA was the opposite of Bill Clinton’s claim that as a Rhodes scholar at Oxford he smoked dope but never inhaled,” explains Maraniss. Here’s how it worked: If you exhaled prematurely when you were with the Choom Gang, “you were assessed a penalty and your turn was skipped the next time the joint came around.”

As one of Obama’s old high school buddies tells Maraniss: “Wasting good bud smoke was not tolerated.”

Another Obama innovation: “Roof Hits.”

“When they were chooming in a 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.”

This part is no surprise: Obama had a penchant for taking it upon himself to redistribute the dope:

Maraniss also says Obama was known for his “Interceptions”: “When a joint was making the rounds, he often elbowed his way in, out of turn, shouted ‘Intercepted!,’ and took an extra hit.”

I liked him better when the only thing he was intercepting was weed. Now it’s trillions of dollars.

    To all the Doug readers:
    O/T
    On June 4, People's magazine comes out with an interview with Moochelle:
    You all have to read it: Being Beyonce.
    One of the daily or rather nightly happenings she confesses: "The lady also dished about a bedtime ritual with her husband, the president: HE TUCKS HER IN AT NIGHT.
    Completely insanity.

    In this case, it's not the smoking weed that reveals his character, it's the 'intercepting'. People who don't care how much weed he inhaled in high school should note that the adolescent BO had no qualms about taking more than his 'fair' share. But of course, this nugget of revelation was hidden away cunningly in plain sight, right in his 'autobiography' (as told to Bill Ayers) where the Reporting Industry would never bother to look.

    Overheard in the White House:

    PBo: Me me me me me me me me me me me me me me me
    SS#1: Is the President warming up to sing?
    SS#2: No, he's saying his prayers

    In his 1995 memoir “Dreams of My Father,” Obama writes about smoking pot almost like Dr. Seuss wrote about eating green eggs and ham. As a high school kid, Obama wrote, he would smoke “in a white classmate’s sparkling new van,” he would smoke “in the dorm room of some brother” and he would smoke “on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids.”

    Before he was a world known zero he was a bigoted racist. It wasn’t a classmate, it was a “white” classmate, they were “Hawaiian” kids, and the dorm was one of a “brother.” And his consciously chosen, decade’s long tutelage under the bigoted racist, so-called reverend is well documented. He has let his racism and prejudices be know many times through his public comments about various law enforcement issues around the country.

    And the MSM has willfully and deliberately ignored this and his high crimes and misdemeanors about Zero out of fear even though they were protected by the highest law in the land, the Constitution of The United States. Which is itself among the high crimes of journalism.

    I find it fascinating and more than a little hypocritical that a candidate for local office (except DC) will be disqualified from eligibility if it is learned s/he participated in any way with drug use or bounced a check, but the news is kept hidden and never allowed to be an issue for dem candidates for Pres.

  6. SignPainterGuy on May 26th, 2012 3:34 pm

    Right again !

  7. SignPainterGuy on May 26th, 2012 3:35 pm

    Almost too true to be funny !

    Once, or once in a while, could be taken as a joke or being silly, but to do it frequently establishes a pattern and exposes a real part of his character.

    Much like an ex-friend of mine; it was everyone`s duty to take turns cleaning the restroom in our shop. Everyone else took their turn in stride and said nothing about it; the BR was always clean. When he did it (3 times in 8 years) he ALWAYS announced it so he got credit. Narcissism !

    Relative to other insanities within the BHO administration, this is quite tame.

  10. ChapBix on May 27th, 2012 10:56 am

    Which is why the lazy main stream media continues its spiral downward in credibility.

  11. ChapBix on May 27th, 2012 10:58 am

    "never allowed to be an issue for dem candidates for Pres. "

    With an emphasis on Dem candidates. We all remember what they tried to do to GWB just days before the 2000 election.

    Idea for any editorial cartoonists in the house: The Founders are sitting at a table passing the Constitution around, and Obama grabs it and yells "INTERCEPTED!"

  13. jeffythequick on May 27th, 2012 1:22 pm

    Again, it's that the root cause isn't the press, it's us. We have allowed through electing these people:

    Unelected ministers to legislate and prosecute us: FDA, FCC, FAA, etc. They make regulations with the force of law, and they're the ones that enforce them.

    Lack of legislative representation: One representative for 730,000 people is a hardly representing the people

    Lack of state representation: the 17th amendment fundamentally transformed the USA. Ever wonder how both houses can pass unfunded mandates to the states when there is no accountability to the states?

    Use of "Emergencies" to do stupid things: Really, if you're on an airplane and any of the antics that the 9/11 hijackers did, would you do what every post-9/11 passenger has done? Notice how there haven't been too many hijackings since 9/11? On 9/10/01 and before, the passengers were to do whatever the hijackers wanted. Now it's kill or be killed. Budding hijackers probably curse the name of Osama bin Laden for ruining their career path. The TSA hasn't solved the problem, we the people have.

    Active free people are the most powerful force for good. Lazy free people are a tyrants tools for evil.

    Once in Zero`s hands, does he quickly shred it, or spin up a fatty ? Either way, the document is destroyed !

  15. SignPainterGuy on May 27th, 2012 1:43 pm

    Was that the coining of the phrase, "False, but Accurate" ?

  16. SignPainterGuy on May 27th, 2012 3:14 pm

    Yeah, the 17th Amendment needs to be repealed. I`m not however convinced we need more representatives, just better, more accountable representation ! There needs to be a better mechanism for recall of rogue congresscritters, and / or better ties to pay vs performance !

    I and some others have been warning for a couple years now that Zero will declare an "emergency" around election time and declare martial law. Well, now more people are seeing clues that he plans just that. Look at the EO he signed in recent months giving himself the authority to do just that !

    Jeff, well said. Part of -my- summation of 9/11 was the ports of disembarkation strategically selected. A jet aircraft covers approx. 400 MPH. Why then ( good Sir ) weren't hostage-strapped projectiles from KC/STL/East Jesus/Corn/Rust Belt America 'selected'?

    Perhaps a case of employee displacing ATM's/Automated Ticketing Out Of Order..? We've been forever focused on accepting the timeline and chronology of ATTACKS ( but very little if ANY focus on the actual complacency and acceptance of… bystanders..?
