Here's an interesting excerpt from The Times' article:

In another section, McClellan describes Bush as able to convince himself of his own spin and relates a phone call he overheard Bush having during the 2000 campaign, in which he said he could not remember whether he had used cocaine. "I remember thinking to myself, 'How can that be?' " he writes.

I think to myself it could be that Bush was the type heavy drinker back in the 80s who would get completely blitzed and do all sorts of things which he might not do otherwise and then have no recollection afterward of having done them. Therefore, if you asked him if he gave any blowjobs to his frat buddies, his honest asnwer would be that he could not remember whether he had.

Of course, that's just one explanation. Another explanation is that Bush was simply lying. Who knows?

Re: my prior post.

I should have said back in the day rather than "back in the 80s". I may have been thinking of my own college experience which was back in the 80s. I was a very good social drinker but I do remember using cocaine a couple of times and I was not in a fraternity. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
