Is Obama On Drugs?

Obama has made so many gaffes of incredible stupidity recently that he is either stupid, ignorant or high as a kite, like his 57 state comment or Kennedy's meeting with Kruschev well before the Cuban missile crisis and constantly forgetting where he is.

So Obambi has been gaffe-ridden for some time. Another beauty occurred on May 8, 2007: In a campaign speech, he said 10,000 people had died in a tornado that hit Greensburg, Kansas a few days earlier. The death toll was 12.

In the past few weeks, however, the O-gaffes have been proliferating.

On April 28 in Wilmington, North Carolina, he thought the month was "March" and that it was "nine months to November."

On May 13 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, he claimed the war in Iraq was responsible for a shortage of interpreters in Afghanistan: "We only have a certain number of them and if they are all in Iraq, then it is harder for us to use them in Afghanistan." Iraqis speak Arabic or Kurdish. Afghans don't, speaking Pushtu, Dari, and various tribal languages.

On May 16 in a press conference, he claimed, "When Kennedy met Khrushchev, we were on the brink of nuclear war." The two met in Vienna in June, 1961. The Cuba Missile Crisis, which Obambi claimed was resolved by the meeting, was in October 1962.

On May 18 in an interview to the Lexington (Ky) Herald-Leader, he said: "I'm not very well known" in Kentucky compared to Hillary because of her husband and "her coming from a nearby state of Arkansas." Illinois - the state he's a senator of - borders Kentucky; Arkansas does not (Tennessee's in between).

The champion O-gaffe was committed on May 9 in Beaverton, Oregon. You have to see it to believe he actually said that during his campaign, "I have now been to 57 states with one left to go," then says that one is "Alaska and Hawaii."

Pamela Gellar pointed to this interesting post by Dr. Jack Wheeler that examines whether these gaffes are from the exausting grind of the campaign trail or are they the result of a drug addled mind. Obama has an admitted history of drug use as he discussed in his book "Dreams From My Father" so it is possible the toils of the trail have gotten to him and he has turned to cocaine once again to relieve the pressure. I have noticed in some interviews and debates that he has a strange airy aloofness and abstract thinking pattern I have seen in people high on coke.
A neuroscientist with years of research into drug abuse and brain chemistry tells To The Point that the behavior exhibited by Obama is consistent with the use of either amphetamines or cocaine.

"His campaign's almost impossibly high level of activity, mental and physical, unrelenting day after day for month upon month is incredibly hard to maintain," he says. "The temptation to maintain it psycho-pharmacologically is great, especially for someone with a history of drug use. The drugs of choice would be amphetamines or cocaine, which can cause amazing mistakes, errors of incredible stupidity."

I don't find this very far-fetched at all and entirely plausible since I know many successful people like Obama who still use controlled substances and he strikes me as the type yuppy that would. I agree with Dr. Wheeler that Obama should consent to a hair follicle drug test especially in light of the very shady characters he has as friends most notably Ayers and Dohrn who are products of the 60's drug culture. It does make me wonder if instead of crumpets and tea with Ahmadinejad he is planning on a few lines and a bowls of hashish to discuss the finer points of totalitarian communism just like his days in college.

sounds right to me

I could not understand how an American constitutional law teacher would not know that there is no President of Canada. I let it pass, but I began to have serious doubts on his knowledge.

But I had the feeling there was something wrong with Mr. Obama when he referred to the 57 States, one could hear some listeners laughing, but he went on. He had to be told by his handlers that he made this egregious mistake. He did not even noticed it, and he is a constitutional law teacher.

My first feeling was a drug problem, but I'm not an expert in these matters. It did take time to have this matter raised.

Someone somewhere made note of the fact that there are 57 islamic nations. So the question is raised again...!

Obama is sooo the drug addict, from his "fired up" slogans to his flubbing up the simplest of facts.
Why did it take so long for anyone to point this out? He's the media darling of course.

Quote of the Year From The Audacity Of Hope… I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction. Senator Barack Hussein Obama
Quote of the Month: “My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.” - Senator Barack Hussein Obama

Reason Obama said he wanted to be President of ALL 57 states. Keep in mind U.S. doesn’t have 57, but…ISLAM is what he is talking about!
Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is an international organization grouping 57 states which have decided to pool their resources together, combine their efforts, and speak with one voice to safeguard the interests and secure the progress and well-being of their peoples and of all Muslims in the world.

President Obama A Victory For Islam

If Barack Obama Enters The White House, Islam Will Have Conquered The Heart Of American Civilization.

Said; IsraCast, Menashe Amir an Israeli expert on Iran

How does Iran view the possibility that Barack Hussein Obama, a former Muslim, might win the U.S. presidential election? Menashe Amir, an Israeli expert on Iran, says not only Iran but also the rest of the Muslim world, will view it as victory for Islam. In an interview with IsraCast, Menashe Amir quoted an important Iranian personality who declared: "If Obama enters the White House, Islam will have conquered the heart of American society!" However, President Ahmadinejad has said that he did not believe the U.S establishment would let Obama win. If Barack Hussein Obama wins the U.S. presidential election, Muslims will view it as a victory and forget that he converted from Islam to Christianity" - that's the view of Israeli analyst Menashe Amir. In fact one leading Iranian personality recently said: "If Obama enters the White House, Islam will have conquered the heart of American society.

I noticed that your article as well as Pamela Gellar's article have been removed from RCP.

I am able to accept the removal of articles dealing with Mr. Sinclair's allegations, as they are at the present time. Although even there, I have some doubt. These allegations should be fairly easy to get rid of if they are scurrilous.

But drug use is a quite different matter. It was used by Mr. Obama to construct his image. The New York Times published a weak article on this matter, with no meaningful investigation.

And there is something to be explained. Either Mr. Obama is out of it or is on something.

I'm getting tired of seeing articles vanishing from RCP. Do they have rules? if so, they should publish them.
