Calling the kettle black… Obama Signs Tobacco Law

// Last updated on //


Today Barack Obama passed a bill into law that is the toughest anti-smoking bill in history. He claims it is because of his struggle with the habit, but honestly, is he trying to quit? He won’t say. We sincerely doubt it.

Our opinion is that Obama is a complete hypocrite trying to appeal to the far left and go after smokers because it is the politically correct, albeit, hypocritical way to go. This man has no scruples.  If he did, he would offer Americans guidance and leadership.  If he had anything at all that makes up a decent human being and leader he would offer to quit in front of America and tell all those that smoked to quit with him.  Instead he is forcing them to quit while he smokes behind closed doors.  The man is despicable.

What is best about it is smokers will be hurt. They will remember. And despite what non-smokers think, they have their rights. They already cannot smoke in restaurants, bars, airplanes and just about anywhere else. Next they will be walking into their living rooms and prying the cigarettes from their tobacco-stained hands. Well, Obama doesn’t have to worry. At least the stains aren’t visible on his hands.

    I’m not against his move on this one.

    Please don’t take things out of context. It comes off as very disingenuous.
    This isn’t so much about CURRENT smokers, as it is about potential FUTURE ones.

    From Obama’s response:
    ‘…the new law that was put in place is not about me, it’s about the next generation of kids coming up.
    ‘Which is precisely why the legislation we signed was so important. Because what we don’t want is kids going down that path in the first place. Okay?’

    He says it is to keep kids from getting hooked… which makes sense. He is already hooked and trying to quit. This is a preemptive strike against new smokers.

    I am in the favor of this law and sure it will surely get success. Very thanks to obama.

    I am in favor of such a law. I agree that most smokers start young and that makes it more difficult to quit, so enforcing a law that doesn’t target children is a good move. I started smoking young and it’s been hell trying to quit — even though my smoke of choice isn’t cigarettes 🙂

    This article is completely false, from the start – Obama is not a hypocrite for passing an anti-smoking law, and you are wrong when you say that he hasn’t said he’s tried to quit. He has said that dozens of times, so do you homework next time, and act like a journalist. He says he struggles with it, because it is a very addictive drug, but that he tries hard not to smoke. What more can a man say or do? That isn’t good enough? He can’t be anti-smoking and also try to quit at the same time? How does that prove in any way that he has “no scruples,” or whatever ridiculousness you’re publishing?
