  2. Check out how appalled the French were. And the French love Americans, in that area of France especially, and everywhere in France on D-Day.

  3. Thank heaven he didn’t try to walk as well.

  4. He should get up enough gumption to step away and light up whenever he wants. I know Michelle nags him about it but he ought to tell her to shut up or pack up her bags and her mother and go back to Chicago.

  5. Unbelievable. Dopey modern dance and a cranky, bored Leader of the Free World. This is what it’s come to.

  6. When you think you’re hot stuff and that your own s#it doesn’t stink and that none of the rules or laws ever apply to you, then you do things like this without thinking twice. ( He must be impossible to work for.)

  8. My only consolation is that his tastelessness and incompetence, in the service of a tired, retro leftist ideology, protect us from even further damage.

    Can you imagine where we would be if he and the Frat Boys Club in the WH were competent? *shudder*

  11. From the article linked to in the post:

    The most powerful man in the world has faced an on-off battle to quit smoking and often chews a nicotine-based gum to drive away the craving.

    Ah, so Big Tobacco is to blame. Thank goodness we don’t have to hold Obama accountable for his own tacky behavior.

  12. he’s been a chemically dependent loser since his whore mama abandoned him and left him with that racist old lady

  13. Thanks for the song Colonel. They still sound great today.

    Gazzer (c3e343)

  14. You people can’t have it both ways: it’s either he chews gum or he lights up one and puffs away right there in the public glare. You don’t know what it means to be in his shoes as president. It’s hard folks. We should be grateful he chose to chew gum. :)

    The Emperor (98014f)

  15. why can’t he just quit Mr. Emperor?

    it’s been 6 years of sneaking around puffing away on secluded loading docks and specially-sequestered bathrooms

    even the propaganda whores are getting tired of covering for him

    ok that’s not true

    happyfeet (8ce051)

  16. Disrespect seems to define Obama.

    Perhaps it’s fitting that more of the world sees it.

    AZ_Langer (f08ff6)

  17. @happy. Maybe when he gets lung cancer, then he will quit. The poSsibility of death can be such a great motivator to quit anything.

    The Emperor (98014f)

  18. The President went to Normandy to chew bubble gum and kick ass. Fortunately, he was not out of bubble gum.

    Ag80 (eb6ffa)

  19. i wonder if he has to pay sales taxes on his cigarettes

    if I had to bet though I’d guess he gets them free somehow

    if only we had journalism in america anymore

    happyfeet (8ce051)

  20. And he’s gonna chew that gum if that’s what it’s gonna take to get you guys to stop talking about Deserter Bergdahl and the famous five. YEaaaaaaaa!!

    The Emperor (4dcc08)

  21. The only way to quit is to quit cold turkey. Nicotine gum just prolongs the pain and makes relapse more likely. Of course, I wouldn’t want any president to go through acute nicotine withdrawal, so he should invoke the 25th Amendment until he succeeds.

    Kevin M (b357ee)

  22. You know what Emperor, I never suspected that something as simple as Bergdahl would trip him up. The tide will now change to propping up Hillary. He’s lamer than a lame duck crossing the road with a broken wing. He is the definition of inept. Everyone knows it now.

    However, he does deserve a place in history. That place does a certain amount of recognition.

  23. chantix + wellbutrin did the trick for me

    with certain asterisks and complications

  24. I mean to say that that place does deserve a certain amount of recognition.

  26. Kevin, the gum works if you use it correctly. I set up a random reinforcement program to extinguish the smoking response and it worked to get me off cigarettes. I then used the same program to get me from nicotine gum to sugarless gum, and then from sugarless gum to carrot and celery sticks, from which I had no problems quitting. I suspect Empty Chair’s problem is that he’s in denial about being addicted to nicotine.

  27. Teh Hubba-Bubba gets ‘bama in Dubba-Trubba… WWII makes some remember bazooka fire… Obama thinks of Bazooka Joe.

  28. brilliant comment mr. colonel

    here’s the dubble bubble logo

    my dad used to keep that in his office for kids and such

    if comes from philadelphia just like marky mark

    plus he had a dr. pepper machine that you didn’t really need money for

    sad now

  29. If you like your Empty Chair, you can keep — oh, wait, you’re stuck with your Empty Chair.

    htom (412a17)

  30. *it* comes from Philadelphia I mean

    here’s
    one of my favorite Danish pop songs

  31. Kevin, the gum works if you use it correctly

    Requires discipline and if you have that you might as well just quit.

    But my more imporant point was that Obama is impaired by his constant nicotine withdrawal and it is clearly affecting his judgement. So, he should invoke the disability clause of the 25th and let Biden take over.

    Kevin M (b357ee)

  32. i have no sympathy for Barry the Dimwitted on the smoking thing: i quit smoking, cold turkey, when i was w*rking as a repo man in the best parts of LA

    he’s just a whiny little punk with no stones, no class and no education.

  33. PS: i though the Chimperor was re-banned?

  35. I don’t think he insisted on chewing gum throughout the ceremony merely because he’s addicted to tobacco any more than he insisted on bowing like a servant in front of the king of Saudi Arabia and the Emperor of Japan during his earlier trips abroad merely to look very gracious and courteous.

    Speaking of bowing, I guess we should be relieved he at least didn’t curtsey in front of Queen Elizabeth or kiss her on the cheek, if not lips.

    Mark (99b8fd)

  36. This fool is a disgrace to the Office and worse, to our Republic. He’s gotta’ go! Impeach his worthless, lying ass. Even a dumbass like “Uncle Joe” is better than this idiot. He has Taliban sympathizers in the Rose Garden, spouting off pro-terrorist crap in some Arabic language and he smiles! What the?……some hippie ass hole basically screaming Heil Hitler at our faces as we bring his traitor son home. What the hell is going on around this country? Has every last Democrat gone brain dead? When did “the loyal opposition” become the disloyal gaggle of traitors?

    He shouldn’t get lung cancer. He’s probably not been smoking cigarettes – just chewing nicotine gun.

    If it wasn’t politically incorrect, he might switch to E-cigarettes.

    Nicotine is associated with heart disease, but not cancer. FDR was probably killed by smoking, but he didn’t get ling cancer (whichis also caused by air pollution, sometimes years back.)

    The amount of nicotine (if used as directed) is probably not enough. He may not be using it as directed.

    This (using the nocotine gum) is genuine mistake in judgement, unless it’s a way of evading what he wife wants, or public exposure, and even so the decision to use nicotine gum is a mistake.

    And he did get photographed, although it’s maybe not so obvious that this is nicotine.
