cigarettes_682_475870a.jpgPresident Obama’s recent physical has revealed that the President is in great health. Still, the reports from members of the White House Press Corp. and others indicate he still needs to work on “smoking cessation.”

This morning’s NYT story discusses Obama’s 30-year smoking habit. Read it here.

Read Time’s Karen Tumulty’s report here. See ABC Jake Tapper’s “Political Punch” report here.

On a different matter altogether, NBC’s Luke Russert tweets,”Does anybody else find it weird that people are so interested in Mr. Obama’s colon health?”

And New York Daily News’s Ken Bazinet: “Not a big surprise jock POTUS is declared to be in ‘excellent health.’ He’s got to avoid the fries, but work hard/play hard is lesson here.”
