  • [SARCASM] Impeach the bastard [/SARCASM]
  • Personally I think there are bigger things to worry about. As long as he does his job I dont care if he smokes his weed in the white house! But im sure thats just my opinion!
  • It doesn't bother me at all. I don't think it would bother me even if I was American. Wouldn't smoking in the White House be against the law, as it is a workplace?
  • It's not that big of a deal, I could care less. But I'm just wondering if 2nd hand smoke would be a factor, I bet they have super technologically advanced vents that suck all the smoke up in minutes lol.
  • It matters but not because he is smoking in the White House. It matters because it shows lack of decision making skills and willpower on his part.
  • No. It's his choice to kill himself of lung cancer. What would bother me would be if he lied, cheated, robbed, embezzled and screw me up even more. His lungs are his to do whatever he wants with them, my life, my wealfare and my future are not
  • No. If that's his pleasure then why not. I am sure the White House is well ventilated!
  • Only in that it was declared (unofficially?) a "smoke-free" building. And the fact that those against smoking are doing all they can to make EVERYWHERE, including your own home and vehicle, "smoke-free". If he smokes outside the building on the porch or balcony, I have absolutely no problem with it. (Then again, he IS supposed to be setting an example for not only his children, but the whole US and maybe the world, right?)
  • He will probably have to do what he does in his own house and step outside. In California, it is against the law to smoke in any inclosed workplace. In "West Wing" (on TV), the President smoked on the veranda when his wife was not watching. Of course she could have turned on the TV and caught him. I am actually more concerned about him getting the job done.
  • No. The White House family quarters are a private residence. He deserves his privacy. He and his wife and family will decide whether he smokes indoors or not.
  • I don't care if he smokes,but it is interesting how there wasn't much mention (if any)of his smoking habit in the media during his campaign.They would've been all over McCain or Palin if they were smokers,"bad role model","addictive personality","socially insensitive" "harming other people with second-hand smoke" etc,etc,etc...
  • I have been thinking that I would make a proposition to my Republican friends... that if they will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them. Adlai E. Stevenson Jr. (1900 - 1965)
  • If he did, they might have to rename the White House - the Yellowing at the Edges House
  • Not so much; there's a lot of other stuff that concerns me right now.
  • well, I don't think ANYONE should smoke in the White House...it is a national monument and smoking causes dangerous diseases...you know like cancer...see below. EEEWWWWWWW
  • no, it's his home. he can do as he wants.
  • Nope, just so long as he doesn't impose second hand smoke on unwilling minors - that's pretty much my feeling about all smoking. And the house is *probably* big enough that he can designate a whole wing as a smoking room. ^_^
  • Not really.
  • im sure plenty of presidents smoked in the white house and not cigerettes either so it doenst matter.
  • no im positive its happened before
  • If it is a rule NOT to smoke in the White House then he, more than anybody else, should comform to that rule. On the other hand, if he could do the job of governing our nation effectively, would you care if he smokes in it?
  • I hope he doesn't. I'm a smoker, and I don't even smoke in my house. It's bad for the furniture and bad for the health of everyone else that lives there. But I won't think any less of him as a president if he does decide to do so.
  • Not at all. As long as he doesn't do the 'Bill Clinton Cigar Disappearing Act'.
  • If he wants to smoke that's his right. The more he smokes the quicker we can start looking for another president.
  • Only in that it would be a bold move. Though I doubt he has the stones to stand up for smoker's rights. The fact that this question exists is evidence that smokers are considered to have a problem.
  • Not at all.
  • Unless there's already a "smoking room", Id prefered he didnt smoke in it... after all, its not his house. The picture, by the way , is a HOAX. http://www.dograt.com/2008/11/01/obama-smoke-hoax/
