Skip to comments.Is the president losing weight? Critics claim stress of leading the country has left Obama frail
Posted on 04/11/2012 10:36:35 AM PDT by COUNTrecount
Already engaged in a strenuous re-election battle, spiking gas prices and a fragile economy appear to be taking a toll on Barack Obama.
Obama, 50, was pictured at a campaign event in Florida today looking a little worse for wear, looking extremely tired and frail, his shoulders narrower than usual.
The photo was splashed atop the Drudge Report website with the headline: SHOCK PHOTOS: Obama, Thin And Wasting Away.
Much like Adele, Jessica Simpson and Miley Cyrus, weight has been a key issue for Obama in the eyes of the media since he became the Democratic presidential nominee in 2008.
Some conservative opponents jokingly asked if the then-Illinois senator was too skinny to be president.

Hope springs eternal.
We should give him a starved cat to feed up.
Help is on the way.
National Inquirer should be all over this. We always have to rely on the foreign media now for the truly cutting edge stories.
Didn’t he have some intestinal parasite? Immunocomprimised?
I bet he is smoking again.
Yep AIDS will do that to ya.
Well, the Presidency is certainly not affecting the wife’s appetite that’s for sure. If it’s such a burden, perhaps he shouldn’t run for another term. Biden can step up in his place....... snicker...
No matter who it is, the job really seems to age them. Maybe it’s because men come to the job at the time in life when their hair starts to turn gray and their faces start showing the wrinkles.
To be fair it’s hard to get enough food when “Jaws” Moosechelle is your tablemate...
We have a winner!
Ideally he needs to lose another 170 pounds.
Must me the Nutrasystem, I mean, Wookiesystem diet...not that anyone other than the slobbering media really give a flying fickled finger of fate...
“...LEADING the country...”????
I had to laugh. There was a comedian that did a bit about Oprah's diet. Something like, "Of course Oprah can lose weight. When you can afford to hire someone to follow you around every waking moment slapping donuts out of your hand...."
Maybe the girlie boy has AIDS.
Maybe the sorry bastard has AIDS.
Thank you allah!
More like cocaine and booze...
Maybe he’s stressin’ out because he just realized Soros will prolly have him offed in order to start the race war for real.
No, he has always been a Kenyan Pencil Neck Geek!
Homosexual cokeheads tend to be thin.
Leading the country? Seriously??? They go on vacation every THREE WEEKS (should have a barf alert)!
Thinner! He must have pissed off some old Gypsy.
YUCK, definite Barf Alert for this pic!
I think you nailed it. Crackhead and Gay plague symptoms. Liver damage? HIV? Hepatitis C? Or also strain is getting to him.
Well Moochelle probably won’t let him eat anything but sprouts and weeds, while keeping the BBQ ribs and Ding Dongs for herself!
It always comes in threes ...
Castro ... Chavez ...
The first thing I thought too.
He certainly isn’t “leading the country.”
He is a professional agitator who managed to be elected president who only has one card to play: vilify and divide.
If he is losing weight over stress, Sheriff Joe likely has more to do with it than any “leading of the country” by Obama.
Mostly a result of his chain smoking off camera and secondarily to Moochelle’s hogging most of the food.
He has not lost enough to be meaningful. At last report he could still be seen.
Stress? What stress? Not from leading the country, that's for sure. He spends less time when in the White House on presidential business than any officeholder in memory. Rush or Levin will occasionally read his daily schedule. He hardly has a briefing until mid-morning whereas Bush had it very early in the day.
The only stress I see him having is the stress of campaigning - he spends at least twice as much time with campaign appearances than he does with his presidential work.
OMG!! His legs look like he just got out of Buchenwald Konzionlager.
Failure is stressful
The traitor could look as thin as an Auschwitz inmate, have Stage 5 Alzheimer’s, and still be reelected by Holder’s people.
The stress of having a carefully orchestrated persona start
to come unglued causes major stress, especially if you are a
I hope it’s serious
Gee, I guess he better not run again.
Time to retire Barry. Then Moochelle can fatten you up.
He’s like Jack Sprat! Can eat no fat, and certainly his wife can eat no lean!!!!
