How Obama can address his former heavy cocaine use
He should say forthrightly, "Yes I did cocaine for a period in my life when I was a teenager. No I'm not proud of it but I'm here to say it was the wrong thing to do and I learned to go on a better path than that. I encourage kids to not try drugs and make a successful life for themselves. I'm not perfect and made a youthful mistake but I learned from my mistake and became a big success".

Something like this could put this thing behind him.

4. You guys are fucking sleazy
you should be ashamed of yourselves. Even the person you support has apologized for these bullshit attacks.

This issue is already behind him. He said exactly what you just suggested he should say. But the reason its not behind his is because people like you keep bring it up. Grow up.

Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 05:51 PM by Tom Rinaldo
Since the source is Obama's own memoir and he only talked about "experimenting" with drugs it is disturbing to see derogative adjectives like "heavy" fabricated and inserted into Obama's narrative of his early use of drugs. As has been pointed out, Obama has already called his drug experimentation a mistake made in youth. I think Obama can handle this and it can be turned into an electoral asset if handled well.

go away though, no matter how much he says. They will run it into the ground.

I think he's actually taking on a good tone about it right now. If he is our nominee he is just going to have to tough it out. And deal with what gets dragged up as it comes.

The plain conclusion from his book is that he smoked a lot of weed, used cocaine only sporadically, and never used heroin.

heavy coke users such as obama would buy some for his personal use and cut some to sell to cover part of the cost. given my many years of watching drug dealers and heavy users of cocaine , heroin, and crystal meth, obama was selling drugs.

75. "Heavy User" Is Another Lie Out of The Floundering Clinton Camp
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 05:30 PM by proudmoddemo
Obama's never admitted to being a heavy cocaine user. He said, from his book, that he was a pothead, that he was on the road to becoming a junkie. But he also said that he used a lot of pot, "maybe a little blow, when I could afford it. Not smack though." That doesn't indicate past heavy cocaine use. It indicates past heavy marijuana use, and occasional use of cocaine.

But that's pretty inconvenient for the Clintons' vile message formed in the evil head of Mark Penn isn't it?

80. Without YOUR added word of "heavy," he already SAID all that, to a classroom of kids, weeks ago.

81. Why is this thread still here?
Obvious flame bait which actually resembles the way Sheehan made his comments. I know I've hit alert but to no avail. This is fromt he same person who then wondered in an obvious racial stereotype if Obama had done crack as well.

85. how many other
politicians have or currently use drugs? Al Gore probably did, as does his son who was busted for cannabis possession. The Clintons and likely their daughter. Kerry, hell these folks were on university campuses in the 60's.

88. He should just duck the question, like Bush always has. Except; Obama wasn't 40 when he quit....

90. Seriously, I'd like an explanation of why this thread has been allowed to stay open...
when so many other attacking other candidates are closed without a second thought.

91. Agreed. Is it against DU rules to start a thread not naming them, but calling out mods?

94. Damn
Obama isn't my preferred candidate but this cannibal fest is over the top. Do you people who want to perpetuate this horse shit really want a Dem in the presidency or are you really trying to sabotage the party. STFU already!

95. As a teenager? I dare one crummy Pug to say a word when they elected
a jerk who used until 40, if he ever stopped. Bush could not even finish his obligation to the military because of his despicable drugs, women and alcohol abuse.
