Wead's tapes and Bush loyalty
So it seems, from the tape recordings of then Gov. Bush, more clear than ever that Bush's youthful indiscretions included cocaine and LSD. While his Christian Conservative base will likely not be pleased with this, Bush gets away with it by "finding Christ" and reforming.
But it made me think of a somewhat larger issue regarding loyalty. Kerry was bombarded by former comrades who were intent on taking him down, but Bush seems to somehow have escaped that scrutiny. Isn't there one democratic former friend of Bush who saw him do LSD and cocaine and wants to come forward to gain some notoriety and take down the President? How did Bush manage to engender so much loyalty in his old friends?
