Obama is not the magical negroe pot president.. According to his friend's biography he smoked tons of pot.. he would even run around the smoke circle to get a second toke and yell 'Intercepted!'
but, the instant you are chosen as a candidate - you follow the party line and letter of the law to a T.. there is no tearing apart the system from the top - he would be impeached/assassinated instantly..
i made this analogy the other day - say you are made the head of Tyson chicken - do you immediately start dismantling the chick crushers? firing all of the pig slashers? kicking everyone off of the board if they disagree? not if you want to keep your job... and that is where i believe the president's policies are made.. on the killing floor..
