Is The First Dude Still Toking?

Obama famously admitted using marijuana and cocaine and the media gave him a pass unlike their skewering of his predecessor for similar youthful indiscretions. The question in my mind today is this, "Is this guy still toking?"

That could explain the huge discrepancy in The One's delusional claim of support for his desired tax increases and the reality of a national poll on the same issue. According to The Hill,

Obama said 80 percent of Americans are on his side in the debate over what to include in the debt package. Voters are paying attention to "who seems to be trying to get something done," the president said. "It's going to be in the interests of everybody who wants to serve in this town to make sure they are on the right side of that impression."

This coming at the very same time Rasmussen's poll on this very topic is reporting that:

Just 34% think a tax hike should be included in any legislation to raise the debt ceiling. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 55% disagree and say it should not.

A discrepancy that large is hard to explain away. We know he's still smoking but is the guy still toking?
