Posted on 09/01/2012 12:20:59 PM PDT by John Semmens
Presidential Press Secretary Jay Carney insisted that the President's admitted heavy use of marijuana as a teenager does not prove he is a dope.
The question of whether President Obama may have suffered brain damage as a member of the infamous Choom Gang as a youth reared its ugly head when a recently completed study by two New Zealand professors measured an average decline in IQ of 8 points for heavy users of weed.
First of all, these figures are an average person, Carney argued. The President is already acknowledged to be so far above average that a decline of such a magnitude is easily overwhelmed by his innate genius.
Second, we challenge anyone to demonstrate any evidence they may believe they have that shows the President to be deficient in any way, Carney asserted. I think the recognized mediators of our culture are pretty unanimous in their perception that the President is, by far, the most intelligent person to ever hold the office.
"Finally, even though it is likely that his Mormon opponent never touched pot, I don't know anyone who wouldn't trust the President to make a more intelligent decision on issues crucial to this country's future, he concluded.

The title might better read: “President’s IQ questioned”
He is a pot headed, pathetic excuse for a human being, let alone being fit to serve as president of the USA.
LOL...good one, Semmens!
Obama is dumber than donuts.
Snip: Long-term marijuana use may actually shrink certain parts of the brain and have lasting effects on mental health.
One of my Mother’s favorite sayings was, “Many a true word is said in jest”. I think this article proves her point.
No, but every single thing he's done as President does. He promotes socialism - a economic/governing system proven time and again to fail, completely. Every one of his "policies" have been failures.
So while heavy use of marijuana may not prove he is a dope, there is more than enough anecdotal evidence to suggest it hasn't helped his mental capacity.
Did “blow” (cocaine) too.

I knew this was going to be yours before I clicked in here. :’)
Yes, it does...without a doubt and it is exibited by "O" every time he opens his mouth. AND...Carney is a dope whether he smoked dope or not. What a pair of TWERPS !!!
