Matter of Opinion

Was Obama really a druggie?

The New York Times had this article two weeks ago in which reporters tried to square Barack Obama's accounts of college-age drug use in his memoirs with those who knew him at the time.

Verdict: He may not have been the partier he portrayed himself to be. How weird is an investigation like that?

Maybe this whole "Long Run" series needs to be re-thought (that's the label that ran with the McCain piece, too).



A Matter of Opinion is really a matter of three opinions – those held by the people responsible for the opinion pages of The Spokesman-Review. Check in regularly to find out what they’re up to, what they think and where they differ and to joust with them if you want.
