Reader: Obama should have taken that hit, because he's leading like he's stoned

Our post spotlighting a video of President Barack Obama being asked if he wanted a hit during a visit to the Wazee Supper Club earlier this week inspired commentary on a wide range of topics across the political spectrum. But many readers included marijuana references in their posts. Here's an example.

Pete Farley writes:

This is more on topic. He's known to be a closet smoker. Maybe while he's in town, he scoped out resources for supplies for a new White House smoking room to go next to the White House brewery. Actually this could work in his favor politically. He's been leading like he's stoned anyway. Maybe that's why we've had 9 major events during his presidency where he said he's heard about it at the same time the rest of did, on the news! Or maybe he needed to pick up some edibles for his fund-raising dinner. He's probably to the point where he has to get his donors stoned to cough up the cash! You never know. It could happen. Just sayin!

It appears my sarcasm struck a nerve or two? Listen to Afroman's "Because I Got High" while rereading it and take your emotions regrding it to a whole new level! Considering the way our nation has been bifurcated over the past 5.5 years, the comments this has elicited do not surprise!

And who is the Obombya you speak of? It's certainly a unique name. This story is about President Obama. Spelling not your strong suit? It's okay. I'm sure you have a few things you do…adequately.

There are three dots necessary for a continued thought…it's all YOU'RE good for. The way you can tell is if you can say 'you are' and come up with a reasonable sentence…oh…never mind…I'm talking to a mental midget. Go back to your misspelled words and your (as in something you own, the other spelling of the word) mental decay…as you were (to use the vernacular).

Pete:  Stupid post of the day.  This honor ALWAYS goes to cultservatives, because while cult addled feelings of cultists are funny to laugh at, FACTS ARE LIBERAL. 

Remember how Obama stopped the Second Great Republican Depression?

Remember how he terminated former reagan employee, middle eastern conservative bush Laden?

Of couse not, you're another victim of romnesia.

I think the host of Wait Wait Don't Tell Me summed it up perfectly last night.


Obama started out 6 years ago with the motto of "Yes We Can" and has resorted to the new motto of "So Sue Me"


You know you've hit rock bottom when NPR is mocking your job performance.

Stoned or not, please don't use the word "leading" in conjunction with Barry. That incompetent fool is more interested in photo ops and fundraisers than anything else.

The author is missing old creaky stinky white guys that can't smile. There's still plenty of those around. President Obama is a breath of fresh air.

Michael, please don't print every stupid thing a reader says just because it's "fair and balanced." There aren't always two (logical, intelligent) sides to a story.

@WillieStortz Except republicans haven't had a president worth a crap since Eisenhower.  Obama is much better than the republicult.

Yeah, it was just an accident when he ended the Second Great Republican Depression and killed former reagan employee bush Laden.

@muhutdafuga The slowest post-recession recover in this history of this nation and you think it's something to be commended for? 


This is why it's pointless to argue with liberals. They are completely ignorant and clueless of the most basic ecnomic facts. They only they can do is regurgitate the talking points they heard the night before on Rachael Maddow.

muhutdafuga

@WillieStortz @muhutdafuga Yeah, that republican obstruction has really slowed the recovery.

It's pointless for you to argue with good Americans because you are stupid and rely on your feelings instead of facts because FACTS ARE LIBERAL.
