GQ has published an unsourced report, attributed to "ongoing discussions with Obama aides and associates," that "if the president wins a second term, he plans to tackle another American war that has so far been successful only in perpetuating more misery: the four decades of The Drug War."

Marc Ambinder's article goes on to make a sensible argument against that war, but it doesn't say much more about why we should believe that Obama would suddenly shift gears after the election.

So on one hand, we have Obama's actual record. On the other, we have some unidentified "aides and associates" who have persuaded GQ to plant the idea that Obama intends to reform the country's drug laws if we'd just re-elect him first, and who have done so in such a way that their candidate will not be held accountable for a promise. You'll have to forgive me if I'm not excited.

Yeah, because his prior actions support that assumption.

He was going to change drug laws if only they'd elect him in the first place.

Dumb bastards.

Wallstreet and banksters will never let it happen. They make way too much money off laundering the illicit gains.

So they have to reelect him to find out what he'll do.  Typical Pelosi-ism.
