UPDATE: A few people commented that the bad effects of Cocaine wasn't yet known to the users of that drug back in the time of Grant, Taft , and McKinley a few months ago I would have assumed the very same thing however they knew much more about it than we gave them credit for. Click to see several examples of their knowledge of the negative Cocaine side effects.A while back while monitoring REDSTATE I noticed a comment that quickly caught my eye concerning Senator Barack Obama's Memoir in which he had admitted trying Cocaine. The individual remarked that even if he were a Democrat he could never vote for an admitted Cocaine user. I thought what a fucking hypocrite this dude is because in all likelihood this little Social Conservative piece of shit had already voted for a Cocaine user twice albeit one that never publicly admitted it although more tellingly President Bush has never denied either. They obviously are in denial about many things over at that mindless Fantasyland known as REDSTATE.
There has also been rumors concerning former President Clintons prior use of Cocaine.
Speculating whether Clinton or even Bush used Cocaine in the past really doesn't matter because many decades before they were even born there had already been at least 3 Cocaine users who were also Presidents.Ironically all three of them were GOP Presidents as a matter of fact one even died a Cocaine Addict.
GOP President Ulysses Grant took cocaine in his last years while writing his memoirs, on the advice of his publisher Samuel Clemens, better known as Mark Twain.

Not to be outdone GOP President William McKinley regularly used Cocaine while in office in fact he entertained at the White House with Mariani's Coca Wine. Furthermore McKinley not only praised it's use but he also endorsed the product.

GOP President William Howard Taft traveled with a throat specialist a Dr. Richardson who clearly used Cocaine to treat Tafts throat which had became hoarse after giving speeches.

Taft described the treatments of Dr. Richardson and others as "he blew me out"and speculated "I fancy these fellows put some cocaine in their treatment".
In addition to these three GOP Presidents Pope Leo XIII and countless others also regularly used Cocaine. It obviously never did any harm to Leo XIII who was oldest Pope in history living to the ripe old age of 93 years.
Papal Endorsement for Cocaine Wine
Pope Leo XIII was so enthusiatic about the cocaine-laced wine called Vin Mariani that he not only endorsed the popular product but he also awarded a gold medal to Mariani for relieving fatigue, lifting spirits, and giving people a sense of well being.
Gold Papal Medal for Cocaine Wine
I personally think Barack Obama would make an excellent President and any REDSTATE fool who wants to disqualify this fine outstanding man from holding that office just because he admitted using Cocaine could learn alot by just opening up a history book every once in a while.
A century ago Popes and Presidents openly used Cocaine yet today that very same act could send you to prison unless you get lucky like DUBYA.
