Apart from providing guns for the Mexican drug cartels, Obama has officially pardoned or commuted sentences of some low level drug dealers more likely to be his connections at the times he was a self-admitted druggie! To buy their silence about his own connections to drug use and distribution?
Good grief, people! Who is this person you have put into the Oval Office? A thug who has nothing better to do than pardon low life drug dealers as part of his presidential duties????
Does that not stink to high heaven? Normal focus and preoccuptation of a president? When the nation is in crisis, he is preoccued with freeing small time drug dealers? What secrets is he trying to hide here?
