...but why does he insist on having his old trainer fly out from Chicago to D.C. regularly when Obama and his wife exhort the rest of us to drive less?

Because, while all animals are created equal, some animals are MORE equal than others...

“I thought of it as kind of a duty, to serve the president”

It could be worse: Idi Amin ate his assistants.

"“It was an easy sell for me, because I thought of it as kind of a duty, to serve the president,” said Mr. McClellan, who works out with the first couple, often in the early morning, at the gym in the White House residence. Mr. and Mrs. Obama both try to exercise for at least an hour every day"

Since Moochelle, who lives a sickeningly lavish lifestyle on the taxpayers' dime, has such a wide arse and linebacker shoulders, I should think it wouldn't do Mr McClellan's reputation an iota of good to be her trainer. What's he gonna do, put up a big photo of Moochelle Obama on his window with the words: "YOU TOO CAN LOOK LIKE THIS". If that's the best you can do Mr McClellan, I'll look for another gym, thankyou.

Gee, I wonder who pays for his flight?

Is it first class, or private military jet?

“It was an easy sell for me, because I thought of it as kind of a duty, to serve the president,”

That’s the whole problem. People think that we are to serve the political elite, government workers, tax eaters. It is not my duty to serve this or any other President.

I wonder if good ol' Cornell isn't one of Obummers "Buddies" from his Larry Sinclair days. It would explain a lot. He could be losing weight through crack use and "working out" with Cornell.

I’m extremely dubious about this workout story.

If the taxpayers are funding this guy, I want video recordings of the “sessions”.

With a schedule as hectic as President Obama's

Hectic? Has anyone actually looked at Obama's schedule? Elementary school children work more hours than Obama.

Equatorial Guinea: Dictator’s Son Orders $380 Million Luxury Yacht

Lauren Frayer of AOL is reporting that Teodorin Obiang, the son of one of West Africa’s longest-ruling dictators has commissioned the building of a luxury superyacht for himself worth $380 million — almost three times more than his country spends annually on health and education for its impoverished people, an anti-corruption group said today.

OK so he has a $110,000/year sinewy “body man” (the actual position title) who is with him ALWAYS, on EVERY TRIP for WHO KNOWS WHAT PURPOSE....

and now he flies some other bro out to DC four times per week to “work out with him”...

Have I got that right?

GAY AS HELL

You know McClellan isn’t flying coach on his weekly visits, and the round-trip business class on Delta is $1,600 to $2,200.

Once you factor in the guy’s fee and per diem, the Obama’s are spending $5,000 to $6,000 per week, or $250,000 to $300,000 per year, on a personal trainer.

That’s your money.

Spare no expense — to the TAXPAYERS!!!!! :(
Recall during the campaign how they made such a big deal that they were “just normal” people—He wore off rack suit and she wore JC Crew; bought IKEA furniture, etc. Guess some of us “normal people” have weathered the recession quite well. However with her high calorie governor’s dinner last nite (2,200 calories for dinner?!?!) and her 1,500 calorie ribs in Vail, she needs to do something.
