From what I'm reading, the rumor is that
there is a video of Obama snorting coke in back in the 90s.

http://politicalnighttrain.wordpress.com/2007/11/17/nov... /

There are quite a few people mentioning that in the Human Events page (where Novak posted his thing).

7. Off A Live Woman's Breast Would Be Hawt
Edited on Sat Nov-17-07 12:39 PM by DemocratSinceBirth
But I wouldn't know... I smoked a ton of reefer and did blotter acid twice... Coke wasn't in vogue in the late seventies...

3. News to Who?
He's already admitted as much, hasn't he (or was it some other substance I'm thinking of?)? Will the act of him ingesting/snorting actually ruin him, as suggested on that blog?

8. Yeah, but you don't want video of it
Hard to imagine being stupid enough to have yourself on video snorting coke, jesus, even Bush managed to avoid or destroy any of that evidence.

I hope this isn't true. :\

13. It would be very damaging--it's one thing to admit to past use, another
to watch the presumed next President acting decidedly unPresidential on videotape. Think how great it would have been to watch a video of Chimpy getting stopped by troopers and having to walk the line and touch his finger to his nose--BEFORE he was elected. (hell, I'd enjoy it even now...)

16. It's exactly the reason I want them to nominate Rudy
I mean, who wants to see a future president in dancing and preening in drag?

36. I feel the same way. Particularly since Rudy did it over and over again.
Over time, he's modeled quite a variety of outfits. I wouldn't have realized that except for the postings I saw here on DU. The public at large, has no idea.

6. Disturbing if he's on video using it but he has admitted to using it in the past.
It's not like he denied it so they can't call him a liar.

17. I'm not encouraging anything, I'm just posting about what I'm reading.
I'm watching the story develop. I know my candidate is clean, and I'm sure this is some shit done by the Clinton's to distract him.

However, it's still news, and I'm following it.

38. I remember the '90's. It doesn't seem that long ago.
But I guess "youthful indiscretions" are not that uncommon these days.

If it's true, I want to see it now as opposed to seeing it during the general election.

And I'd say the same thing about my candidate Edwards.

12. He already admitted to it, but an admission and a video are different things entirely.
This could be huge.

35. Yep. Some here are underestimating the impact
No one pays attention to little things like a candidate admitting to prior drug use. But when the video hits the tube right smack dab in the middle of Survivor or American Idol, that's all she wrote.

20. This From Katz's Site
This page is dedicated to the philosophy of the Liberal, done in an effort to help folks better understand why liberals think the way they do. Lets begin with a simple definition of a Liberal. Generally this is any person who has the follow two values, 1) Redistribution of the wealth; and 2) they truely believe they know what is best for everyone else, regardless of what you value or believe. In my further installments I will continue to espouse on the liberal philosophy and give concrete examples of real world persons that reflect that philosophy.

26. That shit is not my site. It's the site of one of the people
that commented about the possibility of a video on the Human Events website. Did I read about who they are? No. Does it matter? No.

I'm just posting what's being said about the matter.

22. pretty sad when you post smears and innuendo against your OWN preferred candidate
all unconfirmed speculation and rumour that intends to denigrate both obama and clinton, particularly considering the source.

28. So haven't a lot of people done things in their younger years
that might be embarrassing. Hell look at bush. He had to go AWOL, and was never pursued because he couldn't pass a pee test when he was a flyer. He was elected president.

Does that mean republicans can snort coke, stay in a drunken stupor for a year, but it is a different story for a Democrat.

Hell I took a puff on a joint, but I really didn't inhale...I never smoked and I didn't know how.

Edited on Sat Nov-17-07 01:17 PM by Kurt_and_Hunter
It's not like nobody on DU would spread gossip and innuendo with their own spin.

I think Katzenkavalier is doing the best thing for his candidate, pre-empting some of the worst of DU sensationalism, and I applaud that.

31. Don't sweat it. If it happens it happens. If it doesn't, it doesn't.
These rumors come and go... sometimes they pan out, usually they don't.

I've read that Hillary has an ongoing lesbian relationship with her muslim Saudi-born body-guard. I don't believe that, but people say it.

Until somebody produces something real, it's just gossip.
