Obama quits

Smoking:

Apparently dealing with the worst financial crisis in decades, two wars, declining popularity and a shellacking at the polls has done wonders for President Obama's smoking habit - he hasn't touched a cigarette in nine months, according to the White House.

"I've not seen or witnessed evidence of any smoking in probably nine months," said Robert Gibbs, White House press secretary. "I think he has worked extremely hard. And I think he would tell you, even when, in the midst of a tax agreement and a START deal and all the other things that accumulate, that even where he might have once found some comfort in that . . . he's pushed it away. So he understands . . . its dangers and I think has done a lot of extraordinary work to wrestle with that habit, as millions of Americans have."

Millions of Americans would especially appreciate his quitting... period.

Hank:

I'll admit that I don't want anyone with access to the nuclear weapons quiting butts. Everyone I've seen quit was short tempered and extremely difficult to get along with. Put that together with an obviously out-of-control yet fragile ego.

Besides, with Michelle's new food campaign, eating to compensate may not be an alternative.

I'd prefer Obama smoke more.

It'd have been much better if he wrestled with the crisis than with his abd habits.

WildWillie:

I always knew he was a quitter. ;) I did notice that Gibbs said HE has not seen any evidence of Barry smoking. He did not definitively say Barry has quit. ww

Out of all the complaints I may have about Obama, his smoking bothers me the least. In fact, it doesn't bother me at all. I don't care in the least. And why so many have had such a fixation on it is beyond me.

Obama is a serial liar and so is his doughboy Pasty Gibbs.

Just more blather to induce sympathy for Affirmative Action's Poster Child.

It ain't working.

Obama has not given up cigs. They rely on the "there's no evidence of his smoking in the last 9 months" crap. Weak, just like him. I'll bet he's smoking more than 3 years ago. I'll bet the 401k they're going to take anyway!

Who cares? Its fun to make jokes about and thats it. I dont take anything these crums say as legit.

LeBron Steinman:

This isn't so much about O's smoking as it is ,once again, about the media.
If this was a conservative/Republican president, it would be a front and center preoccupation of the media and it would be the subject of cable specials and constant derisive articles and web posts.
The Obama tongue bath media ,as always, gives the guy a pass on one of the lefty nanny-staters cardinal sins-smoking.

Look for this to be used as license for the state-controlled media to gang up on John Boehner, who is a smoker.

If Barry quit, he must do something to occupy his smoke break time? Lord knows its not the economy or international affairs so maybe he has taken up oval office bj's.

jim crane:

If he smokes, so what. I haven't smoked for a long time, and I still want one. One thing is true, though, is you cannot believe Gibbs on anything. He's not as skilled as Clinton at lying but he's working on it every day.

Funny you should mention that as Billybob just took center stage at a presser and sent the teleprompter and Barry home. I think Hillary is going to be tough for Barry to beat. He looked like a befuddled little punk next to slick willie.

jim m:

I have a hard time believing that this is anything more than another BS attempt to garner some positive headlines from the fauning media.

So for 5 minutes on the national news we can hear about how noble he is and what steely will he has in giving up cigarettes. That's 5 minutes where he's not embarrassed by Julian Assange or criticized by the ultra left for merely being far left.

If Obama were a Republican and the media knew he was a slave to cigarettes, they'd rant that it was proof he's in the pocket of Big Tobacco.
