"I be not uh socialist" -- President Obama (2010)
“i did not have sexual relations with that woman”
“I had learned not to care. I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years. Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though. …” Barack Obama

Health sinking, diet in the shitter, cholestrol up, he’s smoking again oh yeah!!Can Obama Teach Country How to Overcome Bad Habits? The President's First Physical in Office Concluded He Is In 'Excellent Health' [b]By JAKE TAPPER and HUMA KHAN[/b] March 2, 2010 For millions of Americans who struggle with [url=http://abcnews.go.com/video/playerIndex?id=9362772]high cholesterol[/url] and [url=http://health.abcnews.com/sw/wl-smoking-truth-and-consequences]smoking[/url], [url=http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/Obama/]President Obama[/url] likely feels their pain and can use his experience to set an example for Americans, doctors say. The 48-year-old, 180-pound Obama was declared "fit for duty" and in [url=http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2010/03/gibbs-discusses-president-obamas-higher-bad-cholesterol-level-continued-struggles-with-smoking.html]excellent health[/url] by White House physician Jeffrey Kuhlman this weekend, after his first [url=http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/video/physical--9982739]physical exam[/url] as president. But the doctor expressed concern about problems that millions of Americans share, [url=http://health.abcnews.com/galecontent/cigarettes]cigarette addiction[/url] and high [url=http://abcnews.go.com/Health/Cholesterol/]cholesterol[/url].
“Getting cigarettes totally out is what you have to shoot for,” said ABC News’ Dr. Richard Besser. “He shouldn’t give up. He’s in a great position to teach the country about how hard it is, but how you can succeed.”
Even among those who use the nicotine gum, 30 to 40 percent revert back to smoking, Besser said.
Ninety percent of those who try to quit on their own start smoking again within a year.
Even those who smoke three cigarettes a day have about 70 percent of the risk of those who smoke two packs a day, according to Besser, meaning that even light smokers are not immune from the hazards of smoking.
“It’s easier to quit if you’re a light smoker versus a heavy smoker, but he hasn’t quit,” Besser said. “There are a lot of cardiovascular problems from just a few cigarettes a day.”
The president has the heart rate of an athlete, but his LDL – so-called bad cholesterol – is at 138 milligrams per deciliter of blood, up 42 points since 2007 and rated “borderline high” by the American Medical Association. The average is 114.8.
I am really sick of hearing what a great athlete Obama is. The guy was a backup high school basketball player in HI, where everybody surfs or plays football. I would love to take him one on one and kick his @ss 10-0. If he was in poor health would they really release those results?
the media has always rambled on about the president’s health.
we always heard what good health bush was in. i was actually impressed with this; dude was a good runner. wasn’t he doing like 5K’s in the 18’s? that’s impressive for a president. I think Clinton was in the 27’s.
I really got tired about hearing about cheney, though. it was like every other day; "cheney had another heart attack (or di-fibulator, or stroke, or angiogram, etc, etc, etc.) five hear attacks - now that’s something special.
Bush could bench 300 in his sixties five times.
Bush ran six minutes miles.
Obama can run six minutes miles.
Can shoot 3 foot j’s.
Cheney is a fat ass.
Cheney can shoot friends 3 feet away from him.
Clinton see-sawed. Could run distance, but not fast.
Couldn’t lift to save his life.
Biden can run seven minute miles
Biden can bench 250lbs.
Palin can run sub six minute miles
Palin can shoot a moose at 200 yards.
Bush = Monster (could likely whip any other leaders ass)
Obama= Bad at basketball, but would be good running from the enemy
Cheney = put him up on the front lines as a distraction
Biden = Tough old goat
Palin = Would

I went out and got my own.
The best was seeing Obama in his girlie-Jeans throwing out the first pitch in Chicago I think. Dude looked like a woman throwing a ball. Bounced the thing at like 50 feet. I’m sorry, but any male worth an ounce should learn to throw two kinds of balls - a football and a baseball. You should be able to shoot a free-throw and dribble without looking stupid. You should be able to hit a slapshot without looking like an 85 year-old stumbling over his cane (I can accept not being able to skate, although when I go to the pond in January and guys are stumbling all over themselves, I can’t help but laugh).
It is not the business of government to make men virtuous or religious, or to preserve the fool from the consequences of his own folly. Government should be repressive no further than is necessary to secure liberty by protecting the equal rights of each from aggression on the part of others, and the moment governmental prohibitions extend beyond this line they are in danger of defeating the very ends they are intended to serve. – Henry George
