2002 Ford Thunderbird • 66,000 miles

Thanks for letting me ask this question:
My 2002 Tbird won't start. It sat for 5 days without being driven, except to move it in the driveway three times within the first 48 hrs. When I tried to start it today, it initially did crank but died. I tried three or four more times before abandoning this. The radio and gauges came on when I turned the key. When I got out of the car, there was some white smoke coming from the tailpipe, and there was a smell similar to burning oil. What can I do to get the car started? I have not previously had this problem.

IS the starter still turning the engine over? If not, recharge the battery or replace as needed.
