If you don’t think it’s alarming that the President of the United States is a left-wing community organizer with no serious qualifications who has spent his entire life surrounded by anti-American communist nutjobs, what if you were to learn that the president is a left-wing community organizer with no serious qualifications who has spent his entire life surrounded by anti-American communist nutjobs and who has a drinking problem?
Barack Obama should not only try harder to kick his smoking habit, his team of doctors warned, but they also recommended ‘moderation of alcohol intake’.
It’s not as if voters weren’t warned in advance that the Anointed One is prone to substance abuse. Here’s Chairman Zero describing his own habits in one of his pre-accomplishment memoirs:
Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow [cocaine] when you could afford it. Not smack [heroin] though.
Regarding the doc’s advice that Zero stop smoking…
Last year Obama signed the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. The law allows the Food and Drug Administration to reduce nicotine in tobacco products, ban sweet flavourings and block labels such ‘low tar’ and ‘light.’
Also to be filed under H for Hypocrisy, from nearly a year ago:
One of President Barack Obama’s campaign pledges on taxes went up in puffs of smoke Wednesday.
The largest increase in tobacco taxes took effect despite Obama’s promise not to raise taxes of any kind on families earning under $250,000 or individuals under $200,000.
This is one tax that disproportionately affects the poor, who are more likely to smoke than the rich.
To be sure, Obama’s tax promises in last year’s campaign were most often made in the context of income taxes. Not always.
“I can make a firm pledge,” he said in Dover, N.H., on Sept. 12. “Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”
But smoking is bad, so Big Government must discourage us from doing it. New taxes on alcohol, “blow,” and reading lies off teleprompters soon to follow. Not smack though.
