It sure would be nice to forgive George W. Bush for his cocaine use 25
years ago. Why is it, though, that he pushed for a lifetime ban on
welfare benefits for felony drug possession offenders?   If past
cocaine possession is a permanent disqualification for welfare
benefits,  shouldn't it be a disqualification for the highest office
in the land?
