I'm glad to see the MSM is right on top of this very important breaking news story.....
ABC News' Sunlen Miller Reports: Senator Barack Obama told reporters in St. Louis today that he has fallen off the wagon and smoked cigarettes in the last few months.
The presumptive Democratic nominee has been open about his smoking past: Once a heavy smoker, he publicly gave up the habit, per his wife’s request, to run for president.
Since quitting, Obama has indicated in the past that he has “fallen off the wagon” but before today was not specific about how recent his smoking was.
“Months,” Obama said of the last time he has smoked.
If there's anything liberals hate more than Bush, SUV's, or poor people getting off welfare, it's cigarettes.
Don't get me wrong, they love that they can demonize the tobacco companies in court and plunder them for billions, but lepers got treated better in biblical times than smokers get treated today.
Who cares of Obama likes to burn one every now and then? That's between his irritating, shrew of a wife and him.
Let me be clear, I hate smelling cigarette smoke and I resent smokers who loiter around entrances to public buildings creating a gauntlet of haze through which I have to hold my breath as I walk, I just find it amusing that the Obamessiah has this character flaw that liberals will have to find a way to rationalize. That this is a news-worthy story in the middle of election season demonstrates how important this issue is to dumb liberals. Let's hope it proves to be a huge distraction.
