White House Correspondent Gushes Over Obama's Blood Pressure: It's 'Superhuman'

Posted on 10/31/2011 7:06:21 PM PDT by chessplayer

You would think that with all the scrutiny Politico is getting as a result of its hit piece on Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, the employees might want to hide their love for Barack Obama for the time being.

Not White House correspondent Glenn Thrush who actually tweeted to his followers Monday evening about the President's "superhuman" blood pressure:

"Obama's bp is like 107 over 71, which is superhuman..."

His BP is actually too low and could be because of drugs.

Mine is regularly 95 over 60. So he’s less human than me, and certainly not super.

If his is superhuman, what is mine, at 98 over 58?

When I asked the doc whether the low numbers could indicate a problem, he grumbled: “Only if you pass out!”

Since I feel fine and am actually healthier than I was 10 years ago, I guess I’ll just Praise Jesus and keep on truckin’.

I'm not that low... more like 115/65. But, it's actually gone down over the past decade.

I don't understand the excitement. Sounds like just another reason for an Obamabot to get out the kneepads.

Superhuman? Are they serious. Either Obama has

(a) been secretly training up for running marathons

or

(b) been secretly jacked on anti-depressants.

Now what do *you* think is more likely?

It's pretty clear to me that Obama's turning to some heavy chemistry to get through his day. It's not like Obama's a long distance cardio monster, and it's foolish for some half-wit at Politico to imply it.

Exactly. With all the stories recently about him becoming withdrawn, i’d say he is at least on 20mg of propanalol 2 times a day. A beta blocker that pulls double duty for anxiety/BP. Besides, my BP is routinely in the 90/50 range, not all that uncommon for a nonsmoking white woman in her 20s. But for a smoking middle aged minority male- ain’t happening without meds.

Millions of Americans are trying to figure out how the hell they're going to make this month's mortgage payment and millions more are wondering if they'll ever work or make a decent wage again.

But Baraq's cool as a freakin' cucumber.

Gimmee a break - Superhuman, my ass ...

I’ve had Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and my BP comes in REGULARLY at 100-110/70 ...

My oncologist says it is REALLY good - but in NO WAY out of the norm ...

Its a matter of genetics - my Dad had BP of about 98/65 ...
