How Ironic: Obama, Phelps and drugs
I just recently read about the hubbub over Michael Phelps being caught doing drugs. It is truly very sad reading about a man that many young people idealize failing and sinning so publicly. Yet the “anointed one”, Barack Obama, who so many look to be the one to lead the U.S. into the Liberal Promised Land, had a similar and probably worse moral failing. The idealized current president of the United States admitted to cocaine and marijuana abuse and yet is perceived by many millions as the moral leader of the free world, while a wonderful athlete is vilified for a lesser abuse. Is there any irony here? Is there a double standard? Decide for yourself.
