The Idea That Barack Obama Was Stoned Is Not Outlandish.
The man has lost a lot of weight. He has a history of drug abuse. By his own admission he has been unable to focus on one of the most important events of his life, scheduled to occur in front of 70 million people. His published schedule reveals a pattern of empty hours. His image has deteriorated markedly with dark shadows under his eyes, sagging cheeks, and generally a hangdog look which is commonly associated with drug abusers. He was listless in the debate. He could not maintain eye contact, a signal of drug abuse. He had trouble formulating his words. He was slumped in his posture. His eyes appeared dilated.
If Obama is in fact addicted to some mind altering substance one would expect his physical condition to deteriorate as it apparently has and one would expect his mental and emotional faculties to deteriorate as well. Obama is well known as a procrastinator, witness his dithering over the surge in Afghanistan and his inability to give a go-ahead order when pressed more than once to take out Osama bin Laden. Procrastination and inability to make decisions, of course, are tipoff symptoms of drug abuse. Liberals complain that Obama failed to bring up Romney's alleged "gaffe" about "the 47%" and that omission, which liberals regard to be utterly inexplicable, becomes completely inexplicable if it is considered to be the product of a drug abused mind. This failure which is so important in liberal eyes is merely one failing in a 90 minute epic failure all of which can be perfectly explained as the product of a drug distracted mind.
Obama himself admits to a history of drug abuse. Most observers have simply discounted the possibility that the abuse continues probably because Obama, superficially at least, presents himself as a model family man. But what if his marriage is a sham, a contrivance of Reverend Wright and his "down low" program of finding women who were willing to marry homosexual men and thus provide a cover for the men to remain in the closet? Has Obama been leading a double life as a homosexual? If so, is there anything in that existence which would preclude drug abuse? Would one not be at all surprised if these characteristics ran parallel? If someone is living a lie on one level would not he be expected to live a lie on another level?
What is there in Obama's situation that precludes the diagnosis of drug abuse?
To believe that Obama's drug abuse ceased because he is a family man is to rely on an unreliable determiner. Nor is the abuse of drugs by a president unprecedented, John F. Kennedy abused drugs and it was covered up. In fact, John F. Kennedy was widely regarded to be a model family man and he was a secret drug abuser who was President of the United States. We know from John F. Kennedy's history that merely occupying the White House does not preclude drug abuse. If we consider how few real press conference's Obama's handlers have exposed him to, if one considers his utter dependency upon teleprompters, if one considers the very careful stage management of Obama's public appearances, if one considers the severe limitations on Obama's schedule, one can understand that these rather unusual behaviors are completely consistent with drug abuse and absolutely necessary to conceal drug abuse.
Obama might have been incapable of prepping for this debate because of his inability to concentrate and remain focused. He has canceled his security briefings but not his nocturnal excursions to rub shoulders with celebrities or to raise money from celebrities, the rich, and other "sophisticates." If we consider the people he prefers to associate with, celebrities, entertainers, sports figures, "sophisticates," one sees the upscale drug culture. He has every evening open for these people but no time at night for Netanyahu in no time during the day for Congress. Did he absent himself at dinnertime from Netanyahu to take dinner with his family, on its face a preposterous notion, or was he driven by withdrawal symptoms to re-medicate? The glitterati are the people Obama apparently prefers to play with, but whom is he dependent upon? We all know that he has handlers at the public level who promote and protect his public image. We know that he had a very strong Chief of Staff in Rahm Emanuel and we know further that Obama is notoriously distracted from the day-to-day workings of the government. It is the fact that "Obama care" should properly be called "Pelosi care" because Obama abdicated the particulars to her. Personal control over Obama himself apparently seems to be centered and two women, his wife, who might well be a wife in an arranged marriage for the very purpose of committing a public fraud, and Valerie Jarrett who has been described as Obama's "Rasputin." This syndrome is certainly congruent with a drug dependent personality reliant upon his enablers and controllers.
All of this is speculation, but it does provide a coherent explanation for Obama's conduct in office and for his public near breakdown at the podium.
According to Algore, Barry should have been wearing an oxygen mask.
Wasn’t just the altitude that was high.
You may be correct and it is a good hypothesis, or perhaps he was nervous, having to recite facts and answer questions on his own without TOTUS or the press to help him, so he took something “to calm his nerves”, or it could be that he is just a lazy, dumb sh*t who has gotten by on affirmative action - that’s what I think.
Funny........I even wondered last night when he kept his head down and avoided eye and camera contact, if he was concealing dilated eyes. Another thing, his complexion has deteriorated considerably in recent months.
I am wondering if he really wants to be re-elected. Lots of pain coming I fear.
I thought he recited his stuff quite well. It’s just that the same old shiite just didn’t sell this time, and was expertly refuted.
I wouldn’t be the least bit suprised if this proves to be true.
Nice article. However it will solidify his core voter base behind him. They are likely a lot like him.
Not as painful as having that motherf$cker as president the past four years.
I think he was tired and didn’t want to be there. He knew he hadn’t rehearsed enough
Proving once again that he’s as dumb as a rock, Algore attributed Obama’s poor performance to altitude change not realizing that the resort outside Las Vegas where Obama spent three days was at an elevation of 2,400 feet.
His eyes were spooky and looked dilated. He seemed to find it difficult to look forward, into the studio lights.
“His image has deteriorated markedly with dark shadows under his eyes, sagging cheeks, and generally a hangdog look which is commonly associated with drug abusers.”
Come now! Cut the guy some slack! Barbie Voice: ‘Being President is HARD!’
Nah-Nah-Nah-Nah-Nah-Nah-Nah-Nah, Hey-Hey-Hey - GOODBYE! :)
OK, so Obama says in his autobiography that as a young man he was an “enthusiastic” drug user.
My question is, what occurred in his life to make him give up drugs?
People who smoke pot defend it aggressively as harmless. (Even Freepers here defend marijuana use). They don’t give it up unless they have a rather significant faith conversion.
I have never hear Obama condemn drug use.
Here in the 60 Minutes “Punch Drunk” interview you can see first hand that the man is stoned.
Normal people don’t start giggling for no reason. Stoned dudes do.
Watch this for proof that Obama continues to abuse drugs as president. Yes we Cannabis.
Mortals have their ways to cope. Too bad this man was propped up as something other than a mortal, whether by his own doing and/or that of others. I say “too bad” because being President of this country requires much. Not that the President is expected to be a god, but he at least ought to be intellectually and morally astute.
As citizens we should plead the mercy of God at all times, both upon ourselves and our land. It’s all that can carry us through from day to day. Weakness is not a bad thing when incorporated with faith, but woe to those who think they can make it on their own.
Thanks for the insightful post, one of many of yours I’ve enjoyed over the years.
It’s certainly an interesting hypothesis.
Given his changed appearance and him being so far off his game is it possible? Yes.
I don’t want to get conspiratorial but when the tell alls are written about this administration the public won’t be just surprised, they will be shocked at what’s been covered up. So much so that the Kennedy White House stories will look like Pat Robertson’s 700 Club.
He doesn’t need drugs to be stupid. He is stupid. Without a teleprompter he has no clue what to say.
He’s spent the last 4 years taking orders from Valerie Jarrett and golfing and vacationing and watching basketball and reading whatever his speech writers have written for him.
He is stupid.
That’s the bottom line.
I've wondered the same thing...willing to bet that he'd probably just as soon retreat to that 35m estate in Hawaii but Michelle and especially Valerie aren't ready for that.
And yes, he isn't up to what is coming and he knows it. Did you see him nodding to Mitt when Mitt made a good point and as the debate went on zero seemed to capitulate to Mitt in overall demeanor.
He is trying to cope by using drugs -- as he openly admits he has done in his past many times.
Affirmative Action college boy who got through college because of skin color meets intelligent white guy who got through college by studying hard equals failure for the Affirmative Action guy. It happens all the time. Put someone in a place of authority that has no reason to be there and this is the result.
Suggested Town Hall Question for Obama:
Mr. President, in your books you admit to making some mistakes as a youth. You even said that you smoke marijuana heavily and were an enthusiastic drug user. My question for you tonight is can you let us know when you gave up drug us and what caused you to do that?
And, as a follow up, would you be willing to take a drug test — like the ones required for members of the military — to assure us that you are not now using illegal drugs?
Really, he’s just lazy and stupid. Doesn’t care about National security enough to attend briefings and got an abassador and other American in Libya murdered. He does not care that his pro-Muslim rule of engagment are murdering US soldiers.
Rocky Mountain High.
Algore may well have been stoned himself when he made his comments about the altitude in Colorado.
Are we talking STONED as in drunk or high on marijuana?
Are we talking HIGH as in COCAINE?
Those are two very different types of altered states and need to be carefully dissected.
What I saw was not a person high on speed of any sort, nor did I see a person stoned at all.
What I saw was a person being out classed with an amazing amount of facts and data who had no idea where those facts came from. In other words, he was totally over whelmed with data he should have known intimately being the most powerful man on earth, but he wasn’t!
He turned out to be a STONE cold fake, HIGH on his position!
I had forgotten all about that one. Thanks. I didn’t recall it being as bad as it is, either. Wow!
The question is and will be--can he get it together enough for the next debate. If he truly is in the grasp of a strong habit and/or addiction it is doubtful he will be able to.
He may or may not be stupid, but he is definitely lazy. He just has no motivation to learn. Actually using his brain is just too much effort. All he wants to do is party on, dude.
I think he may have been nursing a hangover.
He may be lazy but four years ago he was able to get through these debates as well as the Democratic debates.
Does it occur to anyone that it just might be that Obama is not all that bright? I think that his trainers drowned him in more information than he was able to process or to remember. I think that Obama will do better in the town hall format but will be swamped in the final debate again.
“I have been perplexed all day as to how his handlers allowed him to take the stage looking as ashen and haggard as he did.”
Obama looks like a sick man to me. He think he has some severe mental and/or physical problems. An experienced politician/debater does not stand there looking at his shoes like he did last night. Something is up with this guy.
Agree. and I said the same last night right after te debate:
LOL @ Post 27!
A guy called in Medved today and said that Obama lives virtually on Air Force 1. This is pressurized to 8000 feet.
His "hypothesis" is that with a body used to 8000 feet altitude now operating at 5000 feet for the debate would have a beneficial impact.
Or my hypothesis, that Al Gore is a bigger idiot on matters of environment that we give him "credit" for.
About a week ago, Obama himself came out and said that Romney was a very good debater and that he was only fair, thus lowering the bar for his own performance and raising the expectation that Romney should do very well!
He just didn’t understand that Romney meant business going into this debate.
That sort of psychodelic animation triggers vertigo! Whoa! I wonder if it bothers folks w/seizure disorder?
Classic coke head look
