The Choom-Head in Chief

Compliments of Zappatrust.

Listening him dredge up tired Marxist rhetoric as he denounces the economic success his policies make so difficult, you might consider the Moonbat Messiah incapable of innovation. But he has shown creative imagination in one area:

Now a soon-to-be published biography by David Maraniss entitled “Barack Obama: The Story” gives more detail on Obama’s pot-smoking days, complete with testimonials from young Barry Obama’s high school buddies, a group that went by the name “the Choom Gang.” Choom was slang for smoking marijuana.

Maraniss portrays the teenage Obama as not just a pot smoker, but a pot-smoking innovator.

“As a member of the Choom Gang,” Maraniss writes, “Barry Obama was known for starting a few pot-smoking trends.”

The first Obama-inspired trend: “Total Absorption” or “TA”.

“TA was the opposite of Bill Clinton’s claim that as a Rhodes scholar at Oxford he smoked dope but never inhaled,” explains Maraniss. Here’s how it worked: If you exhaled prematurely when you were with the Choom Gang, “you were assessed a penalty and your turn was skipped the next time the joint came around.”

As one of Obama’s old high school buddies tells Maraniss: “Wasting good bud smoke was not tolerated.”

Another Obama innovation: “Roof Hits.”

“When they were chooming in a car all the windows had to be rolled up so no smoke blew out and went to waste; when the pot was gone, they tilted their heads back and sucked in the last bit of smoke from the ceiling.”

Maraniss also says Obama was known for his “Interceptions”: “When a joint was making the rounds, he often elbowed his way in, out of turn, shouted ‘Intercepted!,’ and took an extra hit.”

Obama’s supplier was a guy named Ray who was latter killed with a ball-peen hammer by a scorned homosexual. What was that Obama said about judging him by the company he has kept?

Maraniss concludes his chapter on Obama’s high school years by looking at a note Obama had written in his high school yearbook in a section reserved for students to give a line or two giving thanks to those who helped along the way.

Obama had written this: “Thanks Tut [his grandmother], Gramps, Choom Gang, and Ray for all the good times.”

Maraniss notes: “Ray was the older guy who hung around the Choom Gang, selling them pot. A hippie drug dealer made his acknowledgements; his mother did not.”

A born leader knows how to set priorities.

    We knew he was a criminal.

    Hey! How am I drivin’, man?

    I think we’re parked.


  4. Henry says:

    Wow, ObrownMaos’ claiming credit for the work and ideas of others goes all the way back to high school… His “Total Absorption” method existed even before he was swimming around in his Kenyan Marxist father’s balls. The ironic part is it’s known as Chicago Style.

    “I will be a One Term President if I do not fix this economy within 3 years”! We can not agree more Mr. President. Either you can resign or not run again because if you do, you will be defeated. Move over Jimmy Carter, we have found your replacement for the worst of the worst Presidents and it is ………….YOU!

    Is there really any doubt now about the stories of Bath-house Barry meeting rich homosexuals in Chicago as an Alderman to sell them blow and blow jobs? Or the story from the 1996 DNC Convention where Bath-house Barry was doing Poppers and caught zipping his fly with another man embarrassingly pulling away from Bath House’s crotch?

    If “Ray” the gay drug dealer was done in by his ball-peen hammer wielding gay lover… Surely the “choom gang” had to pay for all the high grade dope they were smoking with money or “favors”.

    Just remember folks every-time you see a strung out stoned loser – HE JUST MIGHT BE PRESIDENT ONE DAY.

  7. G. Helsing says:

    I don’t care about the weed. Reverend Wright is all we need to know.

  8. FuzzyRider says:

    I wonder how many people here would really like to be judged based on their behavior in high school…

    I know a lot of very successful, productive, solid citizens who were freaking assholes in school. They grew out of it.

  9. justme says:

    Just to think, if Obama would have been arrested just once for drug possession and selling… none of this nightmare would have come true.

    The stories about him traveling to India and Pakistan as a youth, when his grandparents were limited means and the “suggestion” that these trips were funded by his drug dealing – all imply that he was dealing drugs.

    If he had been arrested as an Alderman for selling 8-balls – none of this would have happened…

    Instead we have a despicable terrorist addling Marxist drug dealer as President this Memorial Day “honoring” the fallen…

  10. FuzzyRider says:

    Yeah- Just how many futures have been ruined by our idiotic drug laws?

  11. Cameraman says:

    The Guy in the Vid has half a head, our Pos Prez is a Half ass….

  12. blue says:

    wow, Jeff Spicoli was based on Barry!!

  13. ant says:

    I wish he was conservative with our money as he is with his smoke. And, FuzzyRider, you’re right…but Obama’s STILL an asshole…see the difference?

  14. TeaPartyNation says:

    To the clueless and the terminally naive: What did you think “For the first time in my adult life I’m proud of my country” Mooch had her staff and servants (BTW: her’s is the largest and most expense FLOTUS staff in American history) grow in the White House garden – broccoli???!!!!

    How to put the Choom OBOZO campaign into bankruptcy: require that it reimburse the US taxpayers for ALL costs associated with OBOZO having the Secret Service travel to Colombia and the rest of the world to procure his drugs. Even though OBOZO always gets the “volume discount,” the costs of feeding his addition are a staggeringly large addition to the national debt.

  15. Sinister66 says:

    I believe this goes in the “who give a crap” pile. Who cares what he did in high school. I think it would be best to focus on current events.

  16. Noelegy says:

    FuzzyRider, I’d be more willing to let this go IF the media wasn’t poring over every little detail of Romney’s life, and holding up events which possibly didn’t even happen as “proof” that he’s unsuitable to serve as President. It’s the double standard which annoys me.

  17. justme says:

    When does anything matter anymore?

    I pal around with terrorists, I attend a church that teaches hate and anti-white rhetoric, I was a drug addict and dealer, I ate a dog, I obfuscate my place of birth which predicates my eligibility to hold high office, I refuse to release any personal college records or medical records, I flood my cabinet with cronies, legislate by executive order,take responsibility for every accomplishment no matter how insignificant and assign blame for every and all failings – I am Barrack Obama.

    If nothing matters anymore, what then?

    The double standard is amusing. Romney is excoriated for something he did as a teen that may or may not have happened where even the “victim” says it did not happen. McCain who chose to stay with his men and endure years of additional torture in a POW camp had his service questioned. All the while, the official media perspective differs none from the official Administration “talking points.”

  18. Gunnerjones says:

    Penn Jillette made a very valid point, it’s not the fact that he smoked dope and a pole it is the hypocracy. He is using the DOJ to vigorously enforce drug laws, sending college age kids for YEARS for “some smoke, a little blow” He had every opportunity to make drug laws that made sense.

  19. justme says:

    As for what Barry did during his high school years – When studying megalomaniacs, social deviants, serial killers and future presidents – WHAT THEY DID IN THEIR FORMATIVE YEARS IS VERY INDICATIVE OF WHAT THEY DO AS ADULTS AND DOES MATTER.

  20. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Maybe it’s because the media portrays him as this blank canvas.
    Then they display their intellectual superiority by gloating of how little they actually know
    Forget High school
    You sure he even went to college ?
    What courses did he take ?

    It sounds more like he was a Cheech and Chong groupie
    His problem now is he HAS about four years of history
    And it ain’t good
    Of course that may explain why his enablers are attempting to transfer trainloads of it to Bush’s ledger.

  21. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    I forgot
    He got Bin Ladin
    That’s one

  22. CR says:

    I’m sure I was more of a stoner in high-school than that poser Obama. Anyone in my group that pulled an “interception” would have been beaten, then shunned, for breaking protocol. His name would have permanently become “skip”.

    He couldn’t even get smoking right, and it isn’t very difficult.

  23. IslandLifer says:

    Don’t forget his other innovation. TABSUYA. Try and blow smoke up your ass.

  24. Jester says:

    The teleprompter-in-chief smoked all his brain cells away.

  25. FuzzyRider says:

    If it is wrong for the left to bring up the supposed high school antics of Mitt Romney (which it most certainly is), how, then, can the right justify doing the same thing while still claiming the high ground in the debate??

    Somewhat hypocritical, is it not?

  26. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Wrong ?
    More like free speech.
    However it’s the left that turns simple schoolyard pranks into felonies.

  27. FuzzyRider says:

    Free speech, certainly.


    Do you really want to be on the same level as those folks on Kos???

    If you get into the mud with a pig, you’ll end up just as dirty- but the pig enjoys it. Perhaps it is inevitable that in any contest the lowest standards ultimately prevail.

  28. Bath House Barry says:

    “Obama’s supplier was a guy named Ray who was latter killed with a ball-peen hammer by a scorned homosexual.”

    Ray was a homophobe racist who didn’t appreciate a godlike, ebony sex machine with awe inspiring pants. He got what was coming to him. Oh, and it was a claw hammer, not a ball peen.

  29. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    I understand what you are saying
    However, I agree with Penn Jillette on this one
    How can he support drug laws that put others who do the same thing he did in prison ?
    Shouldn’t he be held to account to the same (failed) laws he supports ?
    That’s the thing that makes me skiddish on Romney as well.
    When the next three toed blind crossdresser gets bullied in school, and the inevitable Federal hate crime legislation (complete with penalties of additional decades in prison) makes it to his desk, what will he do ?

  30. […] already know that Obama was a pot-head like St. Skittles, but does he mean he was also violent a hoodrat with a penchant for burglary who […]
