Obama apparently quits smoking
Politico44 ^ | 02/08/11 | MJ LEE

Posted on 02/08/2011 12:07:23 PM PST by ColdOne

The end of Robert Gibbs’s briefing with reporters on Tuesday turned once again to President Obama’s smoking habits as reporters were alerted that the first lady was making some news.

Michelle Obama was meeting with reporters on Tuesday, a year after beginning her campaign against childhood obesity, and mentioned that the president hasn’t smoked in almost a year.

MSNBC’s Savannah Guthrie asked Gibbs to comment about the first lady’s remarks, and she jokingly asked whether Gibbs himself had taken up smoking, to which Gibbs replied, “I have not.”

Yes, and apparently Ms Obama doesn’t need a lead and chase car whilst traveling down the highway with her entourage, WIDE LOAD sign in tow...

Can anyone really believe anything these people say? A while back they were saying he couldn’t stay off the cigarettes.

Amazing how the tone of White House press events has changed from a meeting of enemies sworn to destroy each other when it was GWB in office to now. A virutal love fest. The press is covering Obama like Tiger Beat used to cover teen stars.

Uhmmmm..this is funny. About 2-3 months ago there was another dicussion between Gibbs and the press about The One’s smoking habits- allusions to how difficult it is- how he’s really trying, how he’s cut back etc.etc. So- did he tell Michelle he quit and was lying to her OR does she know he still smokes and she’s lying to us?

Any administration that photoshops themselves into a magazine cover, being hugged by a long dead and buried former president as a prop to support his failing presidency, would just about say or do anything to attach themselves to something successful. Even if that is something as dumb as the smoking issue.

They’re just trying to make him seem “perfect” now - comparing him to Reagan and having him “acutally” quit smoking - so that he has half a chance of getting re-elected.

Plan will fail.

Exactly. did you see this quote from her? "He has always wanted to stop, our kids are getting to the age where he wants to look them in the face because they want to know, 'You don't smoke do you dad?'" She said. "He wants to be able to say no."

Ping................

What’s the matter with all them suspicious FReepers? Why do you deny everything and anything about an important and substantial 0b0z0 accomplishment?

Here is how 0b0z0 reached that milestone proudly reported in the Media. It takes a communist!

0b0z0 went to the doctor to rid himself of smoking. The doctor tried everything in his arsenal but nothing worked.

The doctor told 0b0z0 that the last resort would be painful if he chooses to take that route. Brave 0b0z0 agreed immediately and the doctor gave him a long thick pipe and told 0b0z0 that every time he feels he has to smoke, he should stick the pipe in his ass. He asked to come see him in a month to see how many cigarettes 0b0z0 smoked.

0b0z0 visited the doctor after a month and this conversation took place:

D: so, how many did you smoke in the past month?

0: None

D: do you feel like smoking ever again?

0: Nope

D: So, why are you here? You quit smoking for good.

0: Yes, doctor. But, I couldn’t quit the pipe!!

This is why he now goes by 0h0m0.

Very few people drop 30 pounds after they quit smoking.

Nothing valuable about it when dealing with wookie's. It's outright dangerous. You gotta suit up; have a bulldozer on hand and all emergency services there with engines running. Just as a landing aircraft under emergency.

What’s the word? “Titular”? “Symbolic”? At least the “Mrs.” part. I’ve heard rumors about the other part...

No, tubular. That's the doctor’s prescription, which is now a permanent fixture when Reggie is not providing live support.
