Is Obama Chewing Nicorette at the G-20?
by Keith Koffler, White House Dossier, November 4, 2011

The White House this week released the results of a physical exam in which President Obama was triumphantly declared “tobacco-free.”

But watch the wording here closely. He doesn’t seem to be “nicotine-free.”

It is widely known that Obama was using Nicorette to quit smoking. But it’s not clear he’s quit the Nicorette.

The White House Pool reporter today caught Obama chewing away on some type of gum at the G-20 in Cannes, France.

A very long start to working session #3. Because host French President Nicolas Sarkozy had not yet arrived, the pool was allowed into the start of the session for nearly 45 minutes.
Unfortunately, pooler could not hear most of what was said. But there was plenty to see, including Obama, who was chewing gum throughout, spending at least 15 minutes in animated conversations, first with British Prime Minister David Cameron and later with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Now, when do world leaders ever chew gum at the G-20? Or the G-8? Or the G-anything?

Never. Except maybe if they are having a Nicotine fit.

I’m sure Nicorette works wonders for some people. But everyone I’ve known who has tried it is either still on Nicorette or back smoking cigarettes.

The use of cute phrasing – in this case, “tobacco-free” – to paint Obama as a man taking the tough road to quitting smoking is not new.

Early in his presidency, in 2009, Obama offered a Clintonesque response to a question about his cigarette use:

“I have not smoked in the White House.”

Again, look closely. He was trying to suggest he hadn’t smoked since he got to the White House, but Obama in his lawyerly way was actually saying he hasn’t physically smoked IN the White House.

I have a theory that he golfs so religiously not just out of a love for the game but, with only his trusted band of regulars on hand to see it, to fire up the smokes. But it’s just speculation.

Aren’t you proud that the President of the United States of America chews gum while representing you at the G20?
Well, at least we know Skippy can chew gum and talk at the same time.

  1. Just like everything else w/Skippy….can’t trust one word he utters.

  2. I’m not buying that the Dear Ruler quit smoking.
    Not even a little bit.

  3. He MIGHT be able to talk and chew, but can he Walk and chew? Doubtful!
    This son of a whore needs to be sent to Leavenworth for the rest of his life and a day! Semper Fi.

  4. It takes someone with real backbone to quit smoking! I smoked Camels for just about 35 years and quit COLD TURKEY, people said I was a bit of an asshole for about a month, that was 9 years ago, and my little woman quit about 2 months after I did but she had only smoked for about 10-12 years, but she quit COLD TURKEY also! Bama is a woosey and is worthless, and doesn’t have enough back bone to pull off a bandaid! Semper Fi.

  5. Who really gives a sh_t, i mean really!!!So he’s showing he dosen’t have nerves of steel,big deal.The true test is does he give a real sh_t about the people& can he lead a country back from hell…Now thats what really matters,eh!!!
