Mitt Romney used to be portrayed as a Big Tobacco supporter when he slashed MA's smoking cessation programs' budget. He was even against the idea of a MA state ban on smoking in watering holes.
Unfortunately, despite the fact he believes in freedom when it comes to smoking-related issues, the only way he's gonna win the election if the majority of voters were smokers and business owners. That's only wishful thinking.
At least Obama can't do anything worse to USA smokers/owners. He already lied about raising any taxes for people with 120k or less in income. (He raised the fed tobacco tax in 2009, and that tax affects the 120 k or less income class the most). He even took away my right to buy cig cartons online thanks to the PACT Act.
The only thing he hasn't done is impose a fed smoking ban for all 50 states.
