Did Bush do cocaine? 

Rolling out the wayback machine ...

Let's look at the evidence, shall we?

Actually, there doesn't seem to be any convincing evidence at all. The sourse of all these stories 4 years ago came from allegations in the book "Fortunate Son: George W. Bush and the Making of an American President" made by its author J.H. Hatfield. Hatfield cites "a high-ranking advisor to Bush" and a former Yale classmate of Bush's. One, of course, has to wonder why "a high-ranking advisor to Bush" would disclose something that would damage the presidential prospects of his boss. And it's impossible to ascertain the credibility of the other source.

Hatfield, the author, on the other hand, has been proven not to have any credibility. Hatfield admitted that he made up at least one detail in the book. He is also discovered by the media to be an ex-con who was on parole for hiring a hitman to kill a former boss.

The best evidence left is ... that Bush refuses to answer questions on whether he had done cocaine! So in the end it all comes down not to evidence, but to our own intuition.
