Obama signs strongest anti-smoking measure ever

So, will Obama take the "do as I say, not as I do" approach, or lead by example?

  • The bill is a lot of blather. Tobacco industries will find a way around it. They always do. It was wasted time and wasted money.

  • I don't know why is call an anti-smoking bill because it doesn't in any way prohibit smoking. Just making the company responsible for the way they advertise and putting label on cigarettes.

  • Obama is supporting an anti-smoking campaign, and yet he himself is a smoker?? LOL
    That would be like a pregnant woman advising someone to go get an abortion. Take those "hypocrite blinders" off Mr. Obama!

  • I've seen pictures of Obama smoking when he was younger. Well it is never too late to change.

  • I don't see how it's hypocritical. A lot of people who are smokers who have been smokers hate the fact that they do or ever smoked. But it's a physical and mental addiction that is hard to kick. Especially when your job or life is high stress.

  • Oh goody. How on earth is it going to stop kids from smoking? It's not. Anyone who has been a teen knows if they want to do something they will do it. Putting huge words on the pkg isn't goin gto help. I've already seen several polls that say adults are not going to quit. I guess if they cut the carcinogens it may help th ecancer rate but we won't know that for years. I think that will actually backfire and make people smoke more because they do less damage. It's just a feel good bill. So Obama feels good about himself for doing something and Obama fans think he has done something good .
