Obama Off to a Smokin’ Start

Barack Obama is really getting grilled lately about his smoking habit.

I was watching Fox News this morning and the anchor said that he hoped Obama could quit permanently, because if he doesn’t it “sends a horrible message to young people who look up to him.”

Obama supports legal partial birth abortion, promotes socialism and has old pal who’s an unapologetic terrorist, and when the media finally starts to worry about a message being sent to children, it’s that they might see him puffing on a Marlboro?

Give me a three-pack-a-day conservative over a fully fit liberal any day of the week.

By the way, here’s an interesting bit of trivia about smoking in the White House:

The White House no-smoking rule was imposed by former First Lady Hillary Clinton.

This turned out to be a dumb rule, because if all Bill did was smoke the cigar, he’d not have gotten into so much trouble.
