First lady, Laura
Welch Bush, is no stranger to drugs.

on a routine basis", according to biographer, Kitty Kelly.

a drug user/abuser in the White House is not going to guarantee an end to
the WOD, a largely political war targetting subversive types in America. Today, everyone is hiding their own
consumption of drugs. And that's just the way it should be; that's

Recently, former White House press secretary,
Scott McClellan, revealed that President George W. Bush is one of them.
No one really needed McClellan to spill the beans. That happened
years ago when Bush was governor of Texas. But rather that excite
the press, the story was buried because there wasn't enough evidence to
That's probably because at that time,
much of the world's attention was diverted to Monica Lewinsky's blue
stained dress. What could be more important than the sexual
prowess of a of a married U.S. president and a Democrat? Certainly, the
Republican governor of Texas who was considering a run for the presidency
didn't deserve the unwanted attention, so the story disappeared.
Throughout his two terms as president, Bush
has taken minimal precautions to hide drug-induced behavior. However, when biographer
Kitty Kelly suggested that first lady, Laura Bush, might have a history of
illicit drug solicitation, that seemed so cheap and grocery store tabloid
that no one believed it, even when it was proven. It reminds
us that everyone has had some exposure to drugs. It also reminds us
that in a nation which has one of the worst healthcare systems, somehow
people are finding ways to cope and survive. .
Meanwhile, the histories of American leaders are filled with drug offenses
that could have sent them off to prison for the rest of their lives.
Instead, no one cares what they've done in their past. What it shows
our nation and the rest of the world, contrary to what many think, drug
money talks. For example:
- JFK and Jackie had adminstered daily
"hot shots" in the White House under a physician's
approval. Hot shots were vitamin boosters that were made with
vitamins, methamphetamine, and a "calming depressant" for
those who had the jitters on meth alone. The Bay of Pigs
incident has been conveyed as a hot-headed move by JFK while he was
high... Jackie and Ari were known to be "meth freaks". To avoid
publicity and spying, the couple reportedly had wild orgies on board
his jet. Jackie never made comments to the press about her
political views but she supposedly shared them with her companions.
At Doubleday, Jackie expressed her viewpoint
even further when she questioned Nixon's "rash judgment to
introduce a war against drugs."
- Johnson in later years smoked pot.
- Pat Nixon never let it be known that
she used painkillers.
- When Betty Ford became a public
figure, she indulged in drugs to such extent that she was the brunt of
criticism, especially in those early years of the drug war. When
criticism about her drug habits became publicized, she turned to one
of her aides and reportedly asked: "How do I make this all
go away?" Without missing a beat, the first lady went
through a public detox and opened the Betty Ford Clinic in Rancho
Mirage, CA, putting forth the appearance that she advocated treatment
for drug abuse. However, privately she continued and still
continues to use drugs. As s rule, however, she does not
appear in public when she indulges.
- Reports about Rosalyn Carter using
drugs have never been proven. Amy Carter had admitted that she
smoked pot and has used other drugs.
- Nancy Reagan was reportedly the queen
of White House drug users. By introducing "Just Say
'NO!'" the first lady created a statement that had a dual
purpose. The phrase quickly became the standard for patients
when confronted by a physician and teenagers when confrnted by
- Bill, Hilary, & Chelsea are
anti-drug particularly because they come from families that abused
drugs. Bill's brother, Roger, has appeared on television drunk
and drugged. He's been through rehab and claims to be drug &
alcohol free, but America liked him better when he was high, stoned
and drunk, it seems.
- The entire Bush family is known to be
associated with drugs and alcohol. Barbara is no teetodler, and
she downs her drinks, many say. At the
inauguration of her husband, I met Barbara who was drinking
brandy. She said she hardly noticed how cold it was . Of
course, not! How does one feel anything after five snifters of brandy. Today's first family has a reputation for
concealing their drug use. Take a look at the footage of GWB
during Reagan's funeral. Actually, take a look at a lot of the
footage when he's with Laura and unprepared to speak. Rumor has
it that GWB's a major tweaker. Both he and his daughters have
gained more publicity for their drug use than all other
administrations combined! It figures that he would introduce
Homeland Security to stop drug users. I suppose it really does
prove that these drugs bring out the paranoiac delusions in everyone.
- Barack Obama is the second
presidential candidate in US history to openly reveal drug usage, and
with good reason: It doesn't matter anymore that people use
drugs. The WOD is just a hoax.
