Dubya used Cocaine at Camp David when Bush Senior was President
For months, I’ve been reporting how the mainstream press is concealing the persistent reports of Bush’s past cocaine use. Now — with Kitty Kelly’s new book coming out — I suspect this will be big news. For details, click here.
Unfortunately, negative campaigning works. The Republican smear against Kerry’s Vietnam heroism was not only negative; it was false. The Democrats have every right to go negative, and these charges have the ring of truth. All the documented evidence — including Bush’s own failure to deny the allegations — suggests they are true. (Indeed, back in February, I argued that cocaine use probably explains Dubya’s AWOL (Absence Without Leave) from the Texas National Guard.)

I’d prefer the candidates talk about their stands on issues and vision for the country. But as we learned from 1988, when one side goes negative, the only way to fight back is to follow suit. I’m glad this is coming out. I’m glad the Kerry Campaign is not the source. And I think that this news will give us the 3-5% we need for Kerry to win the election.
Is it unfair? Not when you consider the hypocrisy of it. Bush supports laws putting non-violent cocaine users in jail for many years. These drug users then forever lose the right to vote in states like Texas and Florida. Should Bush have the right to vote if he broke these laws?
This revelation is very big news and very good news for America. Don’t be surprised if it takes awhile to percolate up to CNN and the rest. But it will. And it’s big.
