So Bush smoked a little weed....
    #3805085 - 02/20/05 12:32 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Saw this down in Shroomery News Service (I knew it had to be good for something)::::::

-----------------------------------------------------------------

http://www.wpri.com/Global/story.asp?S=2973876

NEW YORK A published report says President Bush apparently acknowledged trying marijuana in his younger days during a conversation with a friend. Doug Wead secretly recorded at least a dozen talks with Bush between 1998 and the summer of 2000, when Bush was governor of Texas.

The New York Times says in one of those talks, Bush criticized then-Vice President Al Gore for admitting past marijuana use and explained why he would not answer questions about marijuana. In Bush's words: "I don't want some little kid doing what I tried."

Wead, a former aide to President Bush's father, discussed strategy and policy with the future president. He played a dozen of the tapes for a Times reporter.

Wead says he made the recordings because he views Bush as a historic figure.

The White House does not deny the authenticity of the tapes. Spokesman Trent Duffy says Bush -- quote -- "was having casual conversations with someone he believed was his friend." - AP

---------------------------------------------------------------------

No real surprise. I say good for Bush. He should get back in the habit.
Nothing else to say really. Just something humorous and marginally newsworthy.

Hah they could give a shit now. No more elections to win.

What would be even better is if Bush broke character and went off on some kind of rant. Screaming about those "damn dirty towel heads" or something.

Does anybody find it ironic that the guy's name is "Wead"?

Good for Bush? It makes him a hypocrite. At that time, Bush believed it was his right to smoke marijuana. The only thing that changed is that you have to abide by the system if you want to get power.

no, he says several times in the interview that he 'learned from his mistakes'.

nytimes.com has the exclusive.  no transcript allowed, but a close paraphrasing.

i thought the scariest part was when he said "John Ashcroft would make a great supreme court pick" :eek:

lets hope thats not still a possibility...

Indeed. Progressive civil liberties wouldn't be possible without the loopholes in government. The loopholes create amendments which ensure further freedom. Thus the beauty of democracy.

my intial reaction to this was: is there anyone who actually thought he did coke but never tried weed? do people know ANYONE who has done that? serious question.

I hear that. I think most Presidents were not as dumb as Bush, and thought of their rise to political power as situational luck. I think Bush was dumbfounded by becoming President. The only psychological way his feeble mind could come to grips with such a drastic situation would be to immediately assume that some higher power was involved.

That irony was not lost on me.

I wonder if Bush believes that his life would be better off now had he been arrested for his youthful indiscretions.

That was funny. That must be the kind bud George is smokin.

George Bush smoked weed. John Kerry smoked weed. Al Gore smoked weed. Bill Clinton smoked weed.

We can't even find a President or a Presidential candidate that hasn't toked up. You would think the subject of legalization would come up now and then. This is a nation in denial.
