President Obama, Partying Like A Rock Star!

And you know, ordinarily, I would have no problem with it - the guy's got a real stressful job. But when it's the guy who (along with his wife) are planning to control my health care, well, then his boozin' and drinkin' just smells like more of the ruling class refusing to obey the dictates they pass down to their subjects.

Anyway - I think we can infer from the doctor's comments exactly what kind of lifestyle Obama is leading:

...after his 90-minute medical at the Navy hospital outside Washington yesterday morning, his doctors confirmed he had not yet managed to conquer the habit and suggested he "continue smoking cessation efforts".

....The doctors also recommended "moderation of alcohol intake".

Again, as long as he's not staggering around the White House wasted (and there is some anecdotal evidence that this might be the case, see left and link), I really shouldn't care.

BUT - under a national health care plan, our freedom to indulge is in danger. With Michelle Obama on the warpath against obese children (which is less of a general population problem and more of a socioeconomic one) and Baracky pushing "national health", every bag of chips you munch on, every beer you quaff, every loaded slice of pizza becomes an unpatriotic act. With rising health care costs sure to be the biggest drain on our economy under Obamacare (just like it is for every nation that has socialized medicine), restrictions will have to be put on unhealthy activities, all in the name of "keeping costs down". And if they don't outlaw it, the Left will do the next best thing - tax the living sh*t out of it, so that a slice and a Bud will be relieving you of a $10- spot, at least...

So Barack - why don't you clean up your unhealthy lifestyle before you start putting the clamps on ours? You always say you're no elitist, so in the name of the "health care crisis", why don't you lead by example, and try to keep the nation's medical costs down, by living a less deadly lifestyle, one that doesn't include booze and cigarettes?

Maybe it would be easier to take your (and your wife's) admonishments about the state of the nation's health more seriously if you didn't smell like a barroom at closing time...
