Sounds like CBS’ Bob Schieffer jumped ugly with House Minority Leader John Boehner concerning Boehner’s smoking habit, during their interview on Sunday’s “Face the Nation.” Schieffer noted Boehner has taken $340,000 from the tobacco industry over his political career and connected it with cigarette smoking deaths. The hint was that Boehner might push for different government policy if he wasn’t so entwined with Big Tobacco. Boehner blew that off by noting tobacco is a legal product, and he rejected the notion Americans need to be told which habits they can and can’t have by government. Schieffer was undeterred, suggesting Boehner and President Obama stop smoking together. True bipartisanship. Of course, Schieffer should know better. Politico reports the newsman is a former smoker and cancer survivor. The guess here is most people who quit smoking don’t do it because someone hectored them into it.
