wow, obama used drugs

So Barack Obama used drugs as a teen. Big fucking deal. He didn't indulge himself on Daddy's nickel with booze and cocaine while dodging military service. And he didn't lie about it or cover it up, unlike the current Decider-in-Chief, who will only cop to being "irresponsible" in his youth, which lasted until his 40th birthday.

Considering whether Obama is qualified to be president or not is fine; it's legitimate to ask if he is experienced enough. But drug use as a youth, candidly written about in a book aimed in part at young black kids with single parents, in itself shouldn't be disqualifying.
