President Obama Still Smokes (But FDR Style)

According to the results of his first routine medical exam since taking office, President Obama is in very good health. But he still smokes cigarettes apparently, despite famously trying to quit during his 2008 presidential campaign. Have you noticed that there's never been even a single photo yet published of the President smoking since he took office? 

It's reminiscent of how there were only two known photos ever taken of FDR in a wheelchair. (He never took another unassisted step after he was stricken with polio in 1921 at the age of 39, and apparently didn't think the country was ready for a wheelchair-bound president, especially in wartime.)
