A resurfaced video shows former President Barack Obama admitting to heavy drinking and drug use as Democrats lambast Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh for liking beer.
After they failed to prove any outlandish claims about Kavanaugh supposedly sexually assaulting women 40 years ago, the media now runs stories about him throwing ice in a bar, or going to keg parties in college. Indeed, some of the comments you see on social media seem to imply that kids partying is in and of itself bad, and a hell-worthy trespass. My, how the standards have changed in the era of Trump.
The media and the Democrat Party weren’t always such Puritan prudes. There was a time when a man could hold the highest office in the land and it didn’t matter that he was an avid pot-smoker, drank heavily, or used other illegal drugs like cocaine.
Now, a video (below) has resurfaced, in which Barack Obama freely admits that as a high school and college student, he frequently partook in heavy drinking – to the tune of “a six-pack in an hour” – was a “thug,” and used illegal drugs.
Obama on his adolescent years in a rare video of a 2001 interview:
-“I was a thug,” a “mischievous child”
-“I got into fights.”
-“I drank and did–and consumed substances that weren’t always legal.”
-“I might have drank a six-pack in an hour before going back to class” pic.twitter.com/fesvtAPtFH

“I didn’t take school that seriously,” Obama stated in the ‘History Makers’ video. “I got into fights. I drank and did —and consumed substances that weren’t always legal.”
Remember, Obama also admitted to cocaine use in his biography, Dreams From My Father.
“I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years,” he wrote. “Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it.”
In fact, President
Choom Gang Obama was considered charming to many on the left because he made some mistakes as a youngster, but freely admitted to them.
Anyone want to talk about the last twenty years of Judge Kavanaugh’s stellar career? Or is that too inconvenient for a narrative where drinking a few beers is disqualifying to the Supreme Court. #confirmkavanaugh

Democrat President Bill Clinton admitted to smoking marijuana, but couldn’t quite commit fully to the truth, something he struggled with throughout his lifetime.
“When I was in England I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and I didn’t like it,” Clinton famously explained. “I didn’t inhale it, and never tried it again.”
Barack Obama, by contrast, in 2006 admitted: “I inhaled frequently … that was the point.”
We’d better retroactively impeach and disbar Obama if mere beer consumption is an outrageous and disqualifying act.
Democrats believe beer drinking by Kavanaugh during high school means he doesn’t have the temperament for a lifetime appointment on the nation’s highest court.
They also believe beer drinking, pot-smoking, and illicit drug use by Obama during high school amounts to veritable sainthood.
That’s what happens when you have, at best, shifting principals, and at worst, no principals at all. The Democrat Party in a nutshell.
