Obama’s Sordid High School Past
Breitbart ^ | 5/10/12 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 05/10/2012 11:52:21 AM PDT by Nachum

While the Washington Post has been diligently digging into relatively innocent high school pranks by Mitt Romney, they’ve spent the last few years diligently ignoring President Obama’s far more controversial high school days.

Obama, by all accounts, was a habitual drug user in high school. He tried cocaine, he admits in Dreams From My Father; he “tried drugs enthusiastically.” The Chicago Tribune reported back in 2007 that Obama thanked the “Choom Gang” in his high school yearbook; “chooming” was Hawaiian slang for smoking pot. The Honolulu Advertiser reported that Obama’s senior portrait “prominently displayed … A package of ‘Zig-Zag’ rolling papers and a matchbook.” One of Obama’s close friends was arrested for drug possession during high school.

In his memoir, Obama talked about routinely getting high. “Junkie. Pothead,” he wrote. “That’s where I’d been headed: the final, fatal role of the young would-be black man.” But, according to Obama, he only got high because he was contemplating deep matters: drugs could “push questions of who I was out of my mind.”

Obama told students in 2007 that this activity constituted “goofing off” and “wasting time”:

"I will confess to you that I was kind of a goof off in high school as my mom reminded me," Obama said. "I went to high school in Hawaii, so there's a lot of opportunity to goof off because the weather is really good all the time …

"You know, I made some bad decisions …. You know, got into drinking and experimenting with drugs. There was a whole stretch of time where I didn't apply myself. 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.”

The New York Times, however, went out of its way

“Youthful indiscretions” they’ll call it.

...Except when it comes to a conservative, of course.

If not for affirmative action, how does such a person get into college, let alone Harvard?

That’s what I wonder! This pothead business alone could explain his signature “detachment” persona thought to be so cool and ethreal among those in all of the so-called right circles. (I mean LEFT circles.)

Its pretty easy to get into college. If a HS screw-off like me could do it....

Getting a DEGREE, however, is a whole 'nother story.

The media doesn’t care what Obama did in the past. They are only happy he supports gay marriage.

Obama said. "I went to high school in Hawaii, so there's a lot of opportunity to goof off because the weather is really good all the time …

Notice the way he takes responsibility for actions like a true man of character. The weather made him do it. I think I'll see if I can get a government research grant to study the correlation of good weather to drug use.

Sorry if this has been asked 1,000 times, but did that high school have a prom?

Why wasn’t Golden Child Prom King?
