Is the president losing weight? Critics claim stress of leading the country has left Obama frail
Daily Mail UK ^ | April 11, 2012

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.

Even his chin looks different.

Can’t really tell if Odumbo’s ears have shrunken.

CHeck out the bird brain legs!

Was there a comment made in the back room about him having his suits padded so he would appear more robust?

Methinks that the judgements of most seasoned Freepers, such as yourself, are not hampered by the lack of what some consider to be an “infantile” Barf Alert.

Sudden loss of weight is frequently a symptom of cancer. I suggest we keep him in our prayers. It might hurry his demise...

I think you nailed it. Crackhead and Gay plague symptoms. Liver damage? HIV? Hepatitis C? Or also strain is getting to him.

The man-child Moozlim could fall into all of the above.

But if Obama were to have a thorough enema, would we still see him?

After all, we’ve all known he is full of BS.

Failure is stressful

Bingo. The economy is still in the tank, the jobs numbers are horrible, his internal polling shows bad news on the horizon, there's more trouble brewing in the middle east, he can't smoke in public etc. The Presidency is a tough position, but especially so when you're failing.

I looked at the pics and he does not appear that skinny. Matter of fact that was normal weight 40-50 years ago. Our opinions are skewered due to all the fat people out there what is considered normal today.

He has the most ‘elastic’ face I’ve ever seen and the evil from within is showing in his face now. Especially his eyes.

May Obama fade away until there is nothing left of him but a rictus of a fascist cheshire cat grin. And let them vote for it!

I'd be tempted to include some lung cancer in there.

He’s probably worn out. Keeping 300 million people lied to is a lot of work.

I remember watching a lib talk show—I think it was Chrissy Mathews—during the 2008 primaries. They were discussing Obama’s fitness for the presidency. One of the panelists commented that the only thing that would hold Obama back from being able to handle the rigors of the office was his health and stamina. The others just stared at him and then went on to something else....I think they all knew even then that there was something in his background.

“..maybe a little blow” - Obama’s(?) book

He also dies his hair and gel-glues it forward on his forehead -

Cannot even have one loose hair fall and be tested for his obvious drug use......

THE MEDIA should be asking if he would be fit enough for another term, and then demand better medical documents, more ‘thorough’ and transparent medical documents.

Wha, he gave us a one-page report from his doctor the last time around..

ME, I’m ‘worried’ he might not have the stamina for another term. /s
