The issue of Obama smoking seems to come up periodically. Some people think that the President is not setting a good example for his fellow Americans, especially because smoking is one of the biggest killers in their country. With health care being such a huge issue right now, the President’s own habits seem to be a point of contention with supporters and critics alike.
Should President Obama quit smoking?
I guess when it comes down to it, it’s probably best for all smokers to kick the habit…cancer is not a lovely prospect.
But, let’s face it–being President is a high stress job. I mean, just working on projects with somewhat tight deadlines makes me want to reach for a pack on a regular basis… imagine having the weight of a country on your shoulders. Although it’d be a great thing for Obama to do, I don’t know if now is the right time.
Note: I find it interesting after performing extensive research–i.e., doing a Google search and clicking through multiple pages of the results–I only was able to find one seemingly legit photo of the President smoking and even that one seemed as though it might be Photoshopped…
