Let Obama Smoke!

What’s the deal with Barack Obama and cigarettes? Despite a pre-campaign promise to Michelle, he still apparently relishes the occasional drag, and plenty of moralists would like to see him quit. Most recent case: CBN’s David Brody on This Week this morning, listing not-smoking as a New Year’s resolution he’d like to see the president-elect live up to.

Bah! Reminds me of what Lincoln supposedly said after critics accused Ulysses S. Grant of being a drunk and demanded his removal: “If I knew what brand of whiskey he drinks, I would send a barrel or so to some other generals.” In Obama’s case, we want the guy to save the world, but we won’t allow him an occasional self-indulgence? Let Obama smoke!

Tell you what, Barack — I live right up 16th Street from the White House, and you just give me a call when you really need that pick-me-up. I’ll hop on an S bus and pop down to help a neighbor out, all on the q/t of course (I promise not to tell the wife). I’ll even bring a six-pack and we can make an impromptu party of it — with politics off-limits and policy out of mind. And the rest of you, leave the man be!
