Pres. Obama was a pothead growing up in Hawaii. When he and his smoking buddies got high, they called it "chooming." According to a new biography about the president, Davis Maraniss' Barack Obama: The Story, Barry Obama was the head of the Choom Gang.

Barack Obama 1980The young Obama was known for his rules of marijuana engagement, such as "total absorption," which penalized premature exhaling. "Your turn was skipped the next time the joint came around," Maraniss writes.

"Roof hits" are described as, "When they were chooming in a car, all the windows had to be rolled up so no smoke blew out and went to waste. They tilted their heads back and sucked in the last bit of smoke from the ceiling."

Silly me...and here I thought his arrogant head tilt was his homage to Mussolini.

The startling thing he did was campaigned on legalization/decriminalization and then sicked the FEDS on the pot clubs and just as many are still in prison if not more when he became president.

Recently all the major tv networks, the NYTIMES, WaPo, and even Fox carried a story about Mitt Romney being a bully in high school.

Can hardly wait to see the same folks cover this...I’m waiting...still waiting...I’m still waiting.

Anybody out there in the MSM???

My first thought, too. How many Sunday shows will have it as their big topic of the day. How many will dare to factor in the cocaine use as well? Oh yeah... None of them.

It would serve the media right if President Romney revoked all press access to the white house except for the few British outlets that seem brave enough to report the truth about things. Make the Socialist dirtbags earn back their access after they’ve successfully printed a sufficient number of truthful articles exposing the grimy underbellies of those on the left. I know, I know, wishful thinking and it’ll never happen.

"Get some sour cream and onion chips with some dip, man, some beef jerky, some peanut butter. Get some Häagen-Dazs ice cream bars, a whole lot, make sure chocolate, gotta have chocolate, man. Some popcorn, red popcorn, graham crackers, graham crackers with marshmallows, the little marshmallows and little chocolate bars and we can make s'mores, man. Also, celery, grape jelly, Cap'n Crunch with the little Crunch berries, pizzas. We need two big pizzas, man, everything on 'em, with water, whole lotta water, and Funyons."

How many Hollywood actors and musicians are on drugs? Maybe this is how these people connect with each other!
Lots of those people have had lots of problems with relationships. Drugs will definitely mess up a person’s mind. The networks are always telling us how great all these entertainers are??

Perhaps Obama should have Cheech and Chong, stars of 1970s cannabis stoner movies do campaign ads.

Maybe the term “choom” is something he brought with him from Kenya.
