Barack Obama Hooked on Pills? [Tabloid alert]
showbizspy ^ | Thursday February 10, 2011

Posted on 02/11/2011 11:18:40 AM PST by BenLurkin

America’s Globe magazine claims the President is hooked on prescription pills.

The tabloid says Obama’s addiction nightmare is the real reason for the Commander-in-Chief’s shocking weight loss.

The drugs — apparently used to help Barack battle depression — are a “cocaine-like” stimulant, according to Globe.

The drugs — apparently used to help Barack battle depression — are a “cocaine-like” stimulant, according to Globe.

"I will confess to you that I was kind of a goof-off in high school as my mom reminded me," said Obama, who grew up in Hawaii. "You know, I made some bad decisions that I've actually written about. You know, got into drinking. I experimented with drugs. There was a whole stretch of time that I didn't really apply myself a lot. It wasn't until I got out of high school and went to college that I started realizing, 'Man, I wasted a lot of time.' " .... Obama has written about his drug use in his memoir, "Dreams from My Father." Mostly he smoked marijuana and drank alcohol, Obama wrote, but occasionally he would snort cocaine when he could afford it.

Interesting....didn’t realize he used coke “when he could afford it.” I’m guessing he can “afford it” all of the time now. Apparently heavy use can cause depression:

“It is well-known that cocaine increases levels of the brain chemical dopamine, resulting in the “high” that abusers feel. Prolonged use of the drug, however, may reduce dopamine levels, making it harder for abusers to experience positive feelings.” http://alcoholism.about.com/cs/coke/a/blnida030501.htm

I just posted a comment at source complaining about the ridiculous charge of "racism" made by one of Obama's witless defenders.

Racism indeed.

Stimulant drugs cause cocaine-like brain changes
They said healthy mice exposed to daily injections of the Novartis (NOVN.VX) drug Ritalin, or methylphenidate, developed changes in the reward centers of their brains, and some of these changes resembled those in mice given cocaine.

Snip...Millions of children take stimulants such as Ritalin and Shire Plc's (SHP.L) Adderall to treat ADHD, a condition marked by restlessness, impulsiveness, inattention and distractibility that can interfere with a child's ability to pay attention in school and maintain social relationships.

He thinks pills will cure our country’s depression - oops - sorry recession? But seriously - Obama is a f....ng moron. He is just trotted out everyday to make a speech that someone else wrote for him. What the hell is going on now with defunding Obamacare? Just heard Rush mention something that Rep Steve King is doing. Can anyone out there say what that is all about? Rush said something about a section in the law that says $100 million, or was it billions, a year is marked for implementing the law.

His backround certainly would add credibility to this. He’s a 2 bit thug from drug soaked Chicago. He’s weak of character, which would lead to abuse in order to escape the responsibility that he’s never had before...just having a job. Having an actual schedule of things to do and being awakened by an alarm clock is probably all it took.

for those who think leaks cant come from white house..[from yahoo news]...
Obama’s State of the Union address leaked out well in advance of his speech last month? Well, top White House aides certainly haven’t forgotten.

Per Politico’s Glenn Thrush, Obama’s senior political adviser David Plouffe and other White House aides are “quietly trying to ferret out who leaked” the speech. Plouffe, Thrush reports, is particularly troubled because the draft had been circulated among only a small group of “trusted Obama hands.”

Was he covered with nicotine patches when shirtless photos were forbidden?

"Oxycottin?"

No, that is the exact opposite of a "cocaine like stimulent". Opiates (real or synthetic) take you in the other direction. Sounds like amphetimines. Meth in pill form.

Normally, that's what I would have thought. He is certainly unnaturally thin not to be a runner or a cyclist. Even swimmers are heavier than he is.

The only reason I might doubt the HIV diagnosis is that he doesn't appear to have hollow cheeks (yet).

Those Chantix commercials are something else. The cure would be considered worse than the disease if the disease wasn’t the evil tobacco.

Yeah, Ritalin/adderall...this reporter kept from informing the public just which one he's taking.
Then again, they may not have asked and never even been told anything specific. (as seems the case since "a “cocaine-like” stimulant is very vague)
The WH is quite skilled at closing access to records and documents so we may never know. Modus operandi.

Don’t know. How did you like that story of Michelle’s that Obama doesn’t dye his hair? Any president worth his salt and two years into his presidency should be dyeing his hair.

I don’t know. Maybe he can’t keep anything down or in. He’s in way over his head. What can you expect from someone who was a rabble rousing community organizer whose main job was probably nailing notices on telephone poles?

Way out of his league.

If we could get his doctor to increase the dose,maybe he would lose all his weight and simply disappear...or better yet appoint Jacko's former doc...

“I thought antidepressants made you gain weight.”

Dexedrine, which is used by some people to lose weight, is sometimes used to “boost” the effects of anti-depressants. But I don’t know whether it has cocaine-like properties.

Yes, weight gain is a common side effect of antidepressants. They would have switched his medication if weight loss was a problem.

There was a rumor about stomach parasites from the Hawaiian
vacation. Don’t know in that’s silly or possible.

My guess is stress and not being used to actually working long days.
