Skip to comments.President Obama deemed 'fit for duty'
Posted on 10/31/2011 3:35:30 PM PDT by ColdOne
Obama, the doctor said, is tobacco free, physically active, eats a healthy diet, stays at a healthy weight and on occasion drinks alcohol in moderation.
In all, Obama is in excellent health and fit for duty, Kuhlman said. All clinical data indicate he will remain so for the duration of his presidency. The president is also fit at 50 and staying healthy at 50+, the physician said.
The physical was performed at the White House last week with the assistance of consultants from the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
Though Obama likes to joke about his graying hair and photo comparisons offer visual evidence of his rapid aging in the White House, his health has, by some measures, improved since his last official physical in early 2010.

Not by me, he isn’t. He isn’t fit for dog food.
They had to say “tobacco free”. I’ve never heard that description for any other president.
I wonder how long it takes to give TOTUS a physical exam?
That’s a year and a couple months guarantee.
He might be “fit,” but he’s still an imposter ...
They didn’t mention cocaine or marijuana free.
Tobacco free means he told the doctor he doesn’t smoke...not that it is necessarily the truth. The turd has no will power..you know it and I know it.
Reporter: “Dr Pokeinthepus... did you run any definitive medical tests that would determine if chemical traces indicative of tobacco use were present in the president's blood stream”?
Dr Pokinthepus: “Why no... to my knowledge... there were no such tests administered”.
Reporter: “Then how did you know that the president was tobacco free”.
Dr Pokinthepus: “I just took the president at his word”.
Exactly. Or the one I was thinking.... How do you know he is tobacco free? He didn’t smoke during the examination.
Is being “fanatical for Communism” considered “fit for duty” nowdays?
I find it hard to believe they can label him ‘tobacco free’ after only a year or so.
Great. Hope he hangs around long enough to assume the reputation Carter has enjoyed for 30 years - THE WORST PRESIDENT IN MODERN TIMES.
That HDL cholesterol is a little on the high side for a 50 year old male who only drinks moderately. It wouldn't be concerning in a woman, but he's not a woman. What is his doctor's definition of "moderate" alcohol consumption?
Too bad for America
I wonder if he is using an E-Cig which is fine by me. I am using one and am Tobacco free for 3 weeks because of it.
Did the good doctor indicate if he was gerbil free?
So, how about no cocaine traces, or evidence of homosex?
And Obama’s complete medical records/history are where?
musta used the wrong yardstick.....
Well clearly this was a political statement, from a doctor!
Clearly this ‘doctor’ only checked the physical....
We all know mentally and emotionally Obama is unfit.
can we get a psych eval as well?
certain jobs require them... reading from TOTUS should be one of them
This and the DOW being down 276..... makes this a very suck day.
I may have to get my money back for my Obama Voodoo doll.
I refuse to give up hope..... there is always the slipping in the shower prayer I say several times a day.
He found a doctor who´s a liar too.

Tobacco free? Normally, that would be a strange thing to report but not so in this instance. By his own words, Hussein claims he wants to stop smoking because of his girls. He never claimed he was smoking tobacco. He’s still a card carrying member of the choom gang so there’s marijuana and other substances to be smoked.
I thought for sure this was a sarcasm piece.
At first glance, I though this was Dr. **Potemkin**!!! :-)
Why anybody would care about his temperature, I have no clue. We weren't told his blood pressure nor the results of an EKG, though.
His tobacco usage status and how healthy his diet is or is not are both self-reported items. I'm not all that sure I believe them.
I also don't believe that the BMI is all that useful, either, as it fails to take into account things such as bone density and muscle mass.
Since black people tend to have heavier bones than whites, and Obama is part black, that might skew his BMI.
As far as I can remember, I don't think any Presidential physical has ever shown anything less than a fairly healthy individual, and the results have nothing whatsoever to do with the ability to lead or govern.
“That HDL cholesterol is a little on the high side for a 50 year old male who only drinks moderately.”
The doctor has told my husband that he would like to see his HDL above 60. It would seem that the Mayo Clinic agrees.
