View Full Version : Obama struggles to cut down 20-crescendo-a-day habit

One thing he is finding hard to change is his own smoking habit. Another of those little known facts about Obama is that he is "struggling to give up cigarettes" after promising his wife he would when he began his run for the presidency.

To a cynical observer, struggling to give up cigarettes is code for still smoking despite having promised not to. It's great to think of the world's most powerful man sneaking out into the back yard of the White House for a quick fag, breath freshener in his pocket, so Michelle doesn't catch him.

Can anyone find ANY stories in the US MSM about his dirty habit?

From what I see - only the FOREIGN press is even mentioning it. Talk about BIAS! http://news.google.com/news?um=1&resnum=1&tab=wn&nolr=1&hl=en&q=obama+smoker&btnG=Search+News

It's going to be a cold winter. It's illegal to smoke within 50 feet of the entrance to any Federal building so those will be nice pictures of him standing in the cold rain and snow huffing a cigarette out on the front lawn.

I hope when those tiimes of testing by world leaders come he's not jonesing for a smoke.

You cant even smoke in a bar in most states, and his dirty little habit is a big secret. One of his lies is he quit.

I found some pics, but I cant tell if they are fakes.

Smoking is not the in thing to do in the US but in France and the EU it is so sheik. Another un-sophisticated backward group of people. While cig sales are down here, they are booming across the pond.

No bias in this article though


Obama: "(a la Martin Luther King's famous speech) I'll have some cream."

It's hard not to be impressed with the new King of the World's oratorical skills. Sitting in a newsroom last Wednesday afternoon watching Obama's election-night speech was instructive. Normally a gaggle of hard-bitten journalists will compete to outdo each other with the most acerbic one-liner at historical moments. But there was stone silence as Obama talked of his new puppy and his hope for change in America. I think I even saw a couple of them lip-syncing "Yes we can".

The Senate shops used to sell chewing tobacco, cigars and cigarettes by the pack and carton; however, these tobacco products were sold at a discount because no state excise or sales taxes are applied.

I quit smoking years ago, but I still find all the smoking bans ridiculous. With a pragmatic, liberal smoker in a position of high power, watch for a drop off in such bans, lessening of the cigarette taxes, and a reveral of the surgen generals warning. There is a silver lining to every cloud. :D

Make your own is the way to go these days. About $1 a pack and a few minutes of work.

The only hard part is finding a tobacco/tube combination that you like.

D&R's (www.cigarettetobacco.com) Rowland tobacco makes a decent Marboro alternative. I like the Windsail or Premier tubes. The Filterite Lights are good if you like lights.

The tube makes a huge difference in flavor. Fortunately they're cheap, so you can try a bunch.

They make starter kits that go for around $50 and make 2 cartons worth, so even if you don't stick with it, it basically pays for itself after one shot.

It's true.

Democrats aren't going to abandon him because he's a smoker. If it offends their delicate sensibilities, they'll just pretend he isn't.

The handful of Republicans who oppose the core of his ideology are going to dismiss him because he's a dirty commie.

The Republicans who have no real problem with his ideology beyond the fact that he'll be in charge and they won't have nothing else to go on. Why do you think things like this keep coming up?

Very odd, just smoke if its so wonderful. Why would you have to "go" have a smoke. Thats like the 3rd time you said it in this thread.

The whole point is there was a substantial nondiscussion of this. Yes it was mentioned, but most did not know. As of right now, its left off as he quit smoking, but he is still a closet smoker.

The biggest point of all is its something fun to attack. There is nothing about him I will not be attacking. His smoking is on that list. He is a weak sorry sad sack if he cannot quit and he wants too and knows he needs too. Simply put, he is a drug addict.

Very odd, just smoke if its so wonderful. Why would you have to "go" have a smoke. Thats like the 3rd time you said it in this thread.

To the kitchen. I don't smoke in my office.

Just got back in fact. Now I'm having a beer. Does Obama drink beer? Has there been any media coverage?

Why on earth would you not smoke in your office?

It encourages me to get up and get away from the office. It also helps to easily limit how much I smoke.

But I am not a smoking Nazi. I sit out with the smoker buddies of mine and they smoke and I BS with them the only difference is I do not smoke though.

Up to you though, you are not Obama, so I dont give a crap if you smoke, even in a car with kids. :D

And if I open up a no smoking bar don't show up and be a dick and light up because you can't control yourself (like you did in that store). Before you quit of course. It's moot now.

You can open up a fag bar and invite all of your asshole buddies if you like.

Maybe I'll open up a jerk store and stock it with you.

BTW, this thread is about Obama smoking and the lack of media coverage. Or have you forgotten already that you reminded me of that?

I already admitted I was a jerk when I was smoking. You don't comprende?

Getting back to Obama; his smoking is the least thing I am worried about. It's his policies on taxes, defense and military cuts and the economy.

I miss smoking sections. There was nothing sweeter than lighting up and having the whiny morons at the next table ask to be moved. Smoking in the smoking section? Madness!

One of the great things (when I still smoked) about going back home to Pennsylvania to see my parents was that almost every single eating establishment still has smoking and non-smoking sections. Though I wouldn't expect that to last long, due to the anti-smoking asshats out there.

FYI Lacarnut, I too enjoy the smell of a cig now that I've quit. Smells like...victory. :cool:

I honestly can't remember if it's a local or a state wide ordinance. Either way I think it's retarded. Let each business decide for themselves. They'll handle the issue in which ever way gets them the most business.

Smoke, Smoke, Smoke that cigarrette
Puff, Puff, Puff until you puff yourself to death
Tell Saint Peter at the pearly gates,
You'd just hate to make him wait,
but ya gotta have another cigarrette.

Keep Puffing BO! Don't let your wife, Aunt Esther, tell you what to do. Go back to snorting coke! Hell, could you start eating asbestos and playing Russian Roulette while you're at it.

Do what's best for America and finish yourself off.

About two weeks before the election, I did see one mention in the press that he smoked. It was the first and only time I had been made aware that our President-select was a drug addict.

Obama bin Smokefiend!

So Obama is a pack-a-day smoker, Joe Biden had a stroke, and the left was worried about McCain's health?

By this time next year we could be looking at a President Pelosi! :eek:
