Barack Obama Was a Stoner Bully
New York Magazine ^ | Dan Amira | 5/25

Posted on 05/26/2012 1:46:35 PM PDT by nickcarraway

When the Washington Post revealed recently Mitt Romney's past as a cruel boarding-school tyrant, conservatives cried foul. Where were the stories about Barack Obama's days as the entitled son of a governor? What was the media hiding?

Finally, David Maraniss, in his upcoming Obama biography, Barack Obama: The Story, has found the dark truth of Obama's past. It turns out that Obama was a bully as well — someone who threw his weight around and terrorized even those closest to him.

Barry also had a knack for interceptions. When a joint was making the rounds, he often elbowed his way in, out of turn, shouted "Intercepted!," and took an extra hit. No one seemed to mind.

Did they not mind because they had all smoked themselves into a blissful stupor, or did they not mind because they were terrified of Barry?

The truth is bound to come out - and it won’t be pretty.

LOL! Obama lost the War on Religion, the War on Women, the War on Dogs, and now he’s losing the War on Bullying!

Using the term “bully” with this linguini spined, spaghetti arms, pathetic excuse for a human being is an insult to bullies.

There are alot of Freepers who enjoy a puff on occasion, so to broadly say that is wrong. IMO!

I think obama’s a kenyan. I think he’s a muslim. I think he’s a queer. I think he’s a double digit IQ horse’s arse. But there’s no way that the magic negro fairy is or ever was a bully. He’s a pothead version of Urkel.

Oh a bogart eh?

Figures.

I bet he also seldom or never brought any of his own to the party either.

Best way to handle them is just don’t pass it to ‘em and let them figure out why.

Zero was a stoner and a back stabbing, lying and two faced hypocrite. Bully? No, grabbing a number out of line is just being an arsehole. Don’t doubt that plenty of people from those days would say that if they thought it was safe to do so.

"Was?"

Listening to him try to answer questions without a teleprompter supports your suspicion.

Agreed. Partake occasionally if you want, but don't shove it in my face. It's like the sodomites, do want you want behind closed doors and I'll keep my nose out of it. But when you make a whole pushy culture out of it that's when I start caring to get your assaults out of my life.
The stoner culture and queer culture need to disappear from the public eye and then us straights won't have anything to b!tch about.

Yeesh, even way back then he was redistributing other people’s wealth! :-)

True that. it sounds like Vapor Lock.

Reminds one of that ancient Cheech and Chong routine: "uhmmm, ahhh..a lot of people say pot makes you lose your memory...ummm, ahhh..."

Don’t need to be strong, if you’re psychopathic, to be a bully.

I learned the best strategy to keep the drug people from pestering you as they kept insisting on passing you the joint with their pleadings for you to smoke, was to quit arguing and just eat the joint, pretty soon they learned to leave you out of their need to spread drug usage.

LMAO!

Now that is reverse peer pressure if I’ve ever heard of it.

Trouble is, the really good stuff is smoked out of a pipe, don’t want to foul the flavor with nasty paper, so that makes it a bit harder to chow down on it.

This looks like the POTUS is on drugs.

Any questions?

I remember when it was all joints, pipes were only for hash and Opium, needles for speed, and Black Mollies were the real deal, and you could still get LSD-25 and Orange Sunshine.

I even remember $2.00 match boxes, and the couple of short lived times that the seemingly eternal $10.00 per ounce price dropped to $6.00 per ounce.

And joints made of a full newspaper sheet, roughly 26” long, and 2” in diameter, for concerts, I never ate one of those.

Those were made from the rough stuff leftovers from pounds.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Nope, definitely not, the trite words so often heard during the blue dress saga apply here, he “doesn’t rise to that level”. You have insulted the late, great character Steve Urkel.
