The end of Robert Gibbss briefing with reporters on Tuesday turned once again to President Obamas 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 hasnt smoked in almost a year.
MSNBCs Savannah Guthrie asked Gibbs to comment about the first ladys 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...
He just switched over to those “Dutch Masters” grape flavored thingies.
Who gives a crap?
Can anyone really believe anything these people say? A while back they were saying he couldn’t stay off the cigarettes.
Whatever. The media is running out of ways to “humanize” this liar.
This is also the same family which tell us to get healthy eat right while they stuff their faces and in her case fat arse with burgers, fries, ice cream etc.
More importantly is he off the dope yet as it seems many tiems he seems to be on it with that stupid grin he had with OR and others plus his weight loss and red eyes
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.
Hmm. And apparently Mr. O thinks this is newsworthy and that WE will care.
