Is there anything worse than somebody who used to do something “unhealthy” but because they quit doing it they feel it gives them the right to get all self-righteous about it?

Schieffer suggested that he [Boehner] approach President Barack Obama about quitting together, to which Boehner replied curtly, “Bob, I appreciate your suggestion.”

Boehner should have replied, “Bob, I’d rather help the president quit taking over health care, help him quit union bailouts under the guise of “stimulus” and help him quit supporting partial birth abortion first — then I’ll tackle his smoking.”

Okay, with that out of the way, here’s ex-smoker Bob Shieffer pressing Rep. Boehner about his smoking habit and accepting money from the tobacco lobby that Bob Schieffer used to unwittingly finance:

    I`ll assume by the (O) previous comments that nobody cares what Bob thinks; I sure don`t !! I agree with your "preferred" Boehner reply except the last phrase, "-then I`ll tackle his smoking." IMHO – He should have replied, "- then I`ll continue to ignore his smoking." – just as everyone should keep their meddling noses out of other peoples` business !! To my experience, ex-smokers are a particularly obnoxious bunch !! Sorry, Doug, touchy subject !!

    Agreed Sign – my husband is an ex-smoker and it is almost unbearable at times. I know he means well but the bitchin' gets old after a while. And the do gooders here in Michigan banned smoking practically everywhere and it has contributed even more to the downturn in this state. The mom and pops bars all over are reporting 30-50% less business. That means less people working and less revenues to the state. But the liberals and their govt. intrusion know what's best for us. Assholes!!!

    Oh, and let`s not forget that the EXTRA new taxes on tobacco products fund anti-smoking and smoking cessation programs as well as some children`s programs. Smoke or don`t smoke ; it`s for the children !?

    The "Wizards of Smart" at work again !!! Do they want us to quit or not ??
