The media was all over George Bush’s alleged past drug use during the 2000 election. All presidential appointees need to pass an FBI background check. One of the questions is have you used drugs in the past seven years. George Bush in 2000, volunteered the answer after heavy media pressure, will the media ask Obama the same question:
In the Dallas Morning News interview, first published Wednesday in the online edition, Bush said he would insist that appointees answer drug-use questions that are part of FBI background checks, and said he could meet those standards as well.
“As I understand it, the current (FBI) form asks the question, ‘Did somebody use drugs within the last seven years?’ and I will be glad to answer that question, and the answer is ‘No,’” Bush said in the interview.
UPDATE: Free Republic poster states the question now goes back to ten years, not seven, President Bush changed it.
