Why does President Obama hate wars so much? He takes office and suddenly the "war on terror" basically disappears, and now our beloved "war on drugs"has also ended, thanks to his new drug czar. Well, at least our thriving democracy still has czars!
In his first interview since being confirmed to head the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, Gil Kerlikowske said Wednesday the bellicose analogy was a barrier to dealing with the nation's drug issues.
"Regardless of how you try to explain to people it's a 'war on drugs' or a 'war on a product,' people see a war as a war on them," he said. "We're not at war with people in this country."
There you go, liberals, always coddling the drug-terrorists with your therapies and treatments instead of sending pot users to Guantanamo, where they belong.
The Fraternal Order of Police is not real thrilled with this new change in attitude, because now police will have to fill their quotas by arresting people who commit "actual crimes."
