Tim Carney of the Examiner has the story. Today Obama stated, in his voice so eloquent and commanding, “today, despite decades of lobbying and advertising by the tobacco industry, we passed a law to help protect the next generation of Americans from growing up with a deadly habit that so many of our generation have lived with.”
And by that he meant, “today I am giving Philip Morris exactly what its lobbyists wanted so that big tobacco can have more money.”
Because, as Carney points out, “the largest tobacco company in the country — controlling a majority of the U.S. cigarette market–has actively supported this bill for years.”
I am just glad that Obama is looking out for America’s beleaguered tobacco execs — it’s a tough industry out there, what with everyone quitting smoking — and keeping it low under the radar so that the left doesn’t foil his plans.
