Obama smoked. He is not obese, but he did smoke. Deal with it.

Pretty sure a lot of liberals smoke who ARE obese.

You see the world through liberal-biased blinders. And why you're part of the problem.

The president of a prominent Latino advocacy group called President Barack Obama the “deporter in chief,” denouncing the administration’s deportation of nearly 2 million immigrants.
Janet Murguia, who heads the National Council of La Raza, also directed her anger and frustration at House Republicans for stalling on immigration legislation, which is languishing some eight months after the Senate passed a bipartisan, comprehensive bill. Murguia made the comments at an awards dinner Tuesday night.
“For us, this president has been the deporter in chief,” Murguia said.“Any day now, this administration will reach the 2 million mark for deportations. It is a staggering number that far outstrips any of his predecessors and leaves behind it a wake of devastation for families across America.”

Prove it
Obamacare deadbeats: Some don't pay up
By Tami Luhby @Luhby January 30, 2014: 11:02 AM ET

Those who didn't pay their Obamacare premiums will see their policy selection canceled.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
Just cause they've signed up for Obamacare doesn't mean they're covered.
Around one in five people who picked health insurance policies on the state and federal exchanges last year haven't paid their first month's premiums, according to insurers polled by CNNMoney. These folks will likely see their policy selection canceled and they'll be left uninsured.
Some 2.1 million people signed up for a plan in time for their coverage to start January 1, according to the Obama administration. But with the payment deadlines stretching until January 31 at the latest, anywhere between 12% and 30% of those folks still haven't paid up, insurers say.
Most consumers were given until the middle or the end of January to pay their first premium, a necessary step to actually activating enrollment. Exchange officials and insurers repeatedly stressed the importance of sending in that first payment, with some following up with the slackers by phone or letter.
The true enrollment figure likely won't be known for a few weeks.
Share your story: Have you begun using your Obamacare benefits?
Scott & White Health Plan reached out 10 times to each person who hadn't paid and delayed the deadline to Jan. 30, said Allan Einboden, chief executive. Early on, people said there were confused about what they needed to do to activate their policies. Others, however, said they were looking at alternative options or were considering forgoing coverage.
The Texas-based insurer expected its payment rate to be in the high 80% range by its deadline, Einboden said, noting that about 450 people had signed up for coverage starting Jan. 1.
Other insurers cited figures in a similar range. More than 70% of those who signed up for Aetna (AET, Fortune 500) plans sent in payments by its mid-month deadline, while 88% of Medical Mutual of Ohio's 6,500 applicants paid their bill by the Jan. 15 cutoff. That was more than Medical Mutual had projected.
A majority of WellPoint's would-be members have paid, said WellPoint's chief financial officer, but not a "vast majority." WellPoint (WLP, Fortune 500), a major player in the exchanges with 500,000 applications, has given folks until Jan. 31 to pay.
I signed up for Obamacare!
Those who don't pay are receiving termination letters. CoOportunity Health said about 18% of the 11,000 Nebraska and Iowa residents who had signed up missed its Jan. 24 payment deadline and would receive cancellation notices this week. But even this final notice told recipients to call if they had intended to pay the premium.
The insurer had projected up to 20% wouldn't activate their enrollment.
"We figure either those people had a change of heart or thought it was too expensive," said Cliff Gold, CoOportunity's chief operating officer. "Or maybe some people decided to keep what they had."

In one term, the Obama Administration has deported roughly 80 percent the number of immigrants the George W. Bush administration deported in two.
In fiscal year 2012, 419,384 immigrants were deported from the U.S., beating the record of 392,862 in 2009. Based on data provided by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Obama administration has deported roughly 1.6 million immigrants between 2009 and 2012. The previous administration deported about two million between 2001 and 2008.
Statistics also show a record number of deportations of immigrants with a criminal background and an increase of deportations of immigrants with a non-criminal background from 2011. While data for 2013 is not yet available, part of the increase seen in 2012 could be due to the increase in apprehensions along the U.S.— Mexico border, which increased from 340,000 in 2011 to 365,000 in 2012.

The issue of Obamacare, by the law, by the voters, and by consumers, is settled. Republican politicians may want to re-litigate Obamacare again, but as far as the courts and the government is concerned this is a done deal. Democrats need to make this case as it is the only case that needs be made for Obamacare. That is how you unite Democrats around the message for Obamacare. It's the law, move on. If Republicans want to talk about the past, let them. Democrats should be talking about the future. We've got a lot of problems to fix.
You, like Obama, confuse winning an election with a royal coronation and being crowned the king.

The majority of "voters" and "consumers" were against this law then and now.

It was passed on a strictly partisan vote with not even one Republican on board. But I'm sure if the shoe was on the other foot, you'd be defending it tooth and nail like you are now.

Sometimes it feels like I'm trying to reason with a 5-year-old, no offense.

Since he was a known smoker well into his first term - and we just have to take his word for it that he just quit recently - I'd say that was "all for smoking".

Just like he was all for being against gay marriage - until right before an election.

This president functions on politics and lacks any convictions. Not a good combination.
