Posted on 04/21/2010 5:02:35 AM PDT by COUNTrecount
While President Obama has been busy playing golf -- 32 times since becoming president, eight rounds more than George W. Bush played in his entire two terms -- his press secretary, Robert Gibbs, has been biking and kayaking and Tweeting about it to his 55,600 followers. "The truth is, having traveled with [Obama] on the campaign, you're working so much and by the end of the day, you're just so exhausted, I let my health go. I gained weight," Gibbs, 39, told Daily Beast reporter Lloyd Grove.

When did weight gain become bad health?
You know what’s really frightening about this? That Gibbs has over 55,000 followers on Twitter......
Wow. He’s only 39?
Are you serious?
Additional pressure on the heart.
Additional pressure on joints.
Additional pressure on feet.
“When did weight gain become bad health?”
When the degree of weight gain in the US led to an explosion in the prevalence of type II diabetes.
too bad for him that lying isn’t good exercise
He’d weigh about 155, with the circulatory system of a marathon runner.
Long work days and a high stress job will do that to you. And it’s a pain in the backside to get it off, too. Just waiting for the adrenal glands to get back to normal takes a while.
Type 2 diabetes: your child's risk
Type 2 diabetes runs in families. In part, this tendency is due to children learning bad habits eating a poor diet, not exercising--from their parents. But there is also a genetic basis.
He’s only 39? Yeesh.
Gibbs 39? I would have thought older.
It’s the “adult onset” aspect that’s exploding...due mostly to weight.
He looks awful.
So when you call Chief Propaganda Minister Gibbs "a big fat liar" you aren't exaggerating!
He disgusts me...
At 39, he doesn’t have the creds to be the smarmy sarcastic prick that he is at his pressers.
Hell, the way he acts I thought he was 19.
I see that weight gain also contributes to stupidity in Gibbs case.
HOW STUPID IS ROBERT GIBBS ?
Michelle, the Obesity Czar, will need to spring into action.
I can just see the two of them playing Wii Tennis in the West Wing...*my eyes!*
Not near as stupid as those who elected his master.
It appears that the stress of constantly lying ages you AND causes the pounds to pack on.
55,000 nitwits follow this nitwit?
Let him go on Jenny Craig with Jason Alexander.
(standing next to him in an ad would suddenly make
George Costanza look credible....)
Those who elected him did not do so as the result of rational and empirical thought.
It seems that they were, in some way, hypnotized or predisposed to drink his Koolade because of some earlier indoctrination.
And, of course, his African American supporters supported him purely because of his race. One wonders if the strong Christian segment of that group will come to their senses OR will their racial trance hold over time.
It will certainly test their faith!
You are entitled to your beliefs, but,I do not believed that they were hypontized. Each individual that voted for him did so because they thought that he would give them something for noting[i.e.] use the power of government take it from the rightful owner , and give it to them. The White Liberals voted for him ue to self loathing.
But they sowed into the wind and they will reap the whirlwind. When the weeping begins, the tears will be bitter and plentiful.
The bad part is that the just will suffer also.
The problem with that is that it presumes rational or logical thought on the part of the liberal voters and that hasn't been the case.
Liberal voters have been shown over and over again to be almost entirely emotional in their life views (like children).
I know plenty of working liberals who have absolutely nothing to gain from Obama (and much to lose...like their incomes) who, when confronted with the truth about him, just close their ears and minds.
I was in a conversation with some liberals (again, they had nothing to gain from him) who swore that he would save the environment.
When I explained that Obama's Cap and Trade was not a environmental measure so much as a means of increasing government revenues AND that it would simply increase their energy costs, they again closed their minds and ears.
When I explained to this same group that while Obama opposes drilling in the U.S. he was investing U.S. tax dollars in a Soros-owned company (Petrobras, owned in part by Soros) to drill in Brazil, there eyes glazed over and they refuse to understand.
The millions of independent voters who not only voted for Obama but gave him the election know full-well they have nothing personally to gain from his policies...they just haven't yet come to understand how much he is going to take from their pockets.
