Barack Obama Sends Mixed Smoke Signals

by | 10th, December 2008

DOES Barack Obama smoke? Top of the Ticket transcribes that question and Obama’s answer:

MR. BROKAW: Finally, Mr. President-elect, the White House is a no-smoking zone, and when you were asked about this recently by Barbara Walters, I read it very carefully, you ducked.

Have you stopped smoking?

PRES.-ELECT OBAMA: You know, I have, but what I said was that, you know, there are times where I’ve fallen off the wagon. Well…

MR. BROKAW: Well, wait a minute.

PRES.-ELECT OBAMA: …what can I tell…

MR. BROKAW: Then that means you haven’t stopped.

PRES.-ELECT OBAMA: Well, the–fair enough. What I would say is, is that I have done a terrific job under the circumstances of making myself much healthier, and I think that you will not see any violations of these rules in the White House.

Obama needs a course in plain speaking and the use of words of more than one syllable – “HOPE”; “CHANGE”; YES WE CAN.”

Do you smoke? Yes. Or. No?

He needs to spend time with Gordon…
