Skip to comments.DC Scuttlebutt: Obama a ‘Chainsmoking, Nervous Wreck’
Posted on 09/06/2010 9:31:30 AM PDT by maggief
We know its gossip and hearsay, but this was passed onto us via email.
re: Obama is a nervous wreck, chain-smoking incessantly, fretful and broken.
Spoke with a friend of mine in DC who is in very well-connected politically on the Dem side and I asked him about the mood in DC.
He advised me Obama is a shell of a man, second guessing himself non-stop, reeking of cigarettes and consumed with the color of his rapidly-graying hair.
Our informer goes on to say that they realize its second party hearsay but that it is consistent with other reports Ive heard.

He just needs another vacation. That’ll calm him down.
He can’t suffer enough as far as I am concerned.
It takes forever to get the smell of cigarettes out of books and clothes. Yuck.
I bet this is true. He wishes he could say “hear, have it”. He will not run in 2012 or even make it past 2011
He obviously needs to take a vacation. He’s working too hard.
I remember the Frank Rich column where Bush was supposedly twitching and talking to pictures on the walls, a’ la Nixon.
He does not look well, IMO.
If that’s what a connected Democratic is saying, then I say he’s also leaning on alcohol, and the narcissist is also upset that Axelrod is making him lay off the hair dye—so as to impart the wisdom and experience that he doesn’t actually have.
I believe the big Ø will eventually crack under the pressure so that even his rabid drones will sit up and take notice.
Wait a minute...Wasn’t Hillary talking to Eleanor??
...careful folks...remember all the dis-information about the toon...
His hair is going grey rather quickly.
Failed to qualify and qualified to fail.
If he were actually a real Commander in Chief he would be relieved of duties as being unfit.
That explains why he looked so bad at that “I won Iraq” speech he just gave. Interesting that a guy who smokes like a chimney claims the moral authority to decide what we should be able to eat.
Guilt will do that to you. He should just release his actual birth certificate and let the chips fall where they may. He’ll sleep better at night. He may be out of office but at least he’ll get some rest.
Aw, that’s a shame. Hey, you can always QUIT!
Dubious news source, but happy thoughts nonetheless.
I’ve been sent worse pics in FR mail. Same linked source.
He’s stressed out and I think he’s on meds for other stuff too.
It would be fun if he completely lost it on national TV.
May God protect Joe Biden.....the next-in-line is too nasty to contemplate.
Is that the polite way of saying that he's an "empty suit?"
Well since he’s never had a real job in his entire life this must be really hard on him. It’s a tough job trying to destroy the greatest country on earth in 2 years or less. Obama the Defiler, get your chain smoking mooslim butt out of our Oval Office!
POTUS 45 will need to nuke the drapes, carpets and pullout sheet rock down to the studs to get all the junk out.
(An exorcism wouldn't be such a bad idea either.)
Barack Obama - Proof that PT Barnum was right.
I wonder if ‘connected friend’ is in the Hillary camp...
Shell of a man. It requires that you were a man first. Rush I think is doing a replay today but he is talking about Obama being a muslim.
His only worry is he is not destroying America fast enough. He will be saved by the idiots tuning into Natl Felons League and NCAA ball where they run propaganda for Obama in between the “dumb white man” TV commercials.
Living testimony against affirmative action.
It’s the ghosts in the White House.
They won’t let him sleep.
Personally, I don’t believe this gossip.
Obama and his Marxist are deliriously happy at the utter destruction of of Free Enterprise and the Middle Class they have caused.
If only this were true.
I'm surprised and very disappointed this kind of garbage gets posted on FR.
“His hair is going grey rather quickly.”
It was probably dyed before the election and he was counseled to let it revert to give him some non-existent gravitas.
Yeah put him on permanent administrative leave without pay.
AIDS will do that to you.
Or too much ice cream and golf.
Hence the recent "tarpping of the oval office) and recent remodel? just sayin.....maybe the remodel was done becuase the smoke didn't come out with the first cleaning attempt....
I know how to make him feel better! Let’s all send him a carton of “Kools”.
The fact that oBozo is in waaaaaay over his head, and is living a walking nightmare, is evident in how much time he spends in the Oval Office, which is little to none.
The punk street hustler is scared to death of that place, and takes every opportunity to remove himself as far away from it as possible.
I'm sure that the underlying reason for the recent Oval Office redecoration was to make it more comfortable for him. Insiders are well aware that he's psychologically spooked at having to sit in The Big Chair and do actual work.
I'll bet any amount of money that some high dime shrinks have been working hard to keep the boy king from collapsing into a mental basket case.
I've been saying for a while now, that he doesn't have the backbone to make it until January 2013.
He already is the “absent president”. His main ambition was to get to the white house, he figured everything else would just fall into place, which it seemed to do for a short while. Now, he can’t seem to get away from it all enough. He will be on vacation the full year of 2011, with just a few TV appearances...
See post 7 and remember that passed the smell test at the NYT....oh, but what am I saying?
I hope he smokes 4 packs a day.
He maybe trying to quit, and redecorated the OO to get he stink out. Either that, or he fell asleep smoking, and set something on fire, but put it out before the alarms went off.
"Jest chillin' out."
Guilt will do that to you
I doubt he’s capable of guilt, so much as
shocking (to him), egomaniacal FAILURE. I
worry about the depths of his vindictiveness.
Pride goeth before the fall ...
