"Smoking kills more people than Obama, although he kills lots and lots of people. Don’t smoke, don’t be like Obama."

A poster in Russia.



"The advert has no attribution, no author has come forward to claim it and Moscow city hall has not commented."

They should have used this one

Obama said in 2013 that he had not smoked for six years.

Because that's what's important here.

this is not an Obama hating poster, it's an America hating poster. Obama is just a sitting president

That is a subtle contrast. Putin and Trump don't smoke. The future smells better already.

Effective in Russia no doubt.

So much for reset.

Puff piece.

I wonder if some photographer caught a photo of the president sneaking a cig if any paper would actually print it. There were no published photos of FDR in a wheelchair during his time on office. Conversely, the AP photographer said that he tried to get a photo of Reagan looking old and confused, but Reagan had a movie star's talent for looking handsome and composed in every setting. It was very frustrating for the AP photographer.

Russians are learning how to demean Obama the American way. They are so used to submitting to authority. So it is a learning curve with many early attempts to sort of say what they mean. But this one looks good on the old subtle level and on the in you face level.

Hating Obama is a world commonality.

And no, Vlad isn't our friend

Well, if Obama saves lives by getting them to quit smoking, then it may be his greatest achievement.

Bad translation. It says, "Don't be worse than Obama."

This is the future for Obama, pot-shot ridicule for the rest of his life. First prezzy to commit suicide? Or was that Franklin Pierce?

Demonstrably true. True of the last president and the next and of every strongman everywhere. Don't be like a strongman. Free people will not suffer such men. Be free.

The worst (best?) part is that this is better than all the horrible American Legacy Foundation ["Big Tobacco Settlement boondoggle NGO"] anti-smoking ads I've seen so many of (all of which make me furious, and almost make me want to smoke just to spite the bastards).

("Cats are twice as likely to get cancer if their owner smokes! Stop smoking or EVERY CAT WILL DIE! NO MORE CAT VIDEOS!"

That's nearly verbatim from this steaming pile of propaganda.

Every "Truth" ad makes me want to smoke, and I've never been a habitual smoker.

"You shouldn't smoke because big tobacco makes money" is the lamest and most pathetic tactic I have ever seen. That's right - not because it's bad for you, but because the Other will make a buck, as if nobody realized that buying stuff transferred money around.

The only way it could be worse is if the target youth market actually bought that line of excrement.)

The leading cause of premeditated, premature human mortality is abortion rites.

Obama is the current leader of the pro-choice cult based on a faith pulled from the dark fringes of a penumbra.

The first part refers to Obama abandoning Iraqis, facilitating the establish of terrorism, backing violent coups, destabilizing multiple nations, creating and sustaining a refugee crisis, progressive wars, and other consequences of his anti-native policies.

The second part refers to Obama's smoking habits. Don't be like Obama.

lvg,

Obama can't even get himself to quit smoking so any anti-smoking advice he gives falls on deaf ears.

And smoking does not kill people. Cancer kills 'em.

But Obama defiantly kills people with direct orders to the drone operators.
