commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

The President passes his annual medical……

That blood pressure reading!…damn!

The guy IS calm…….

President Obama underwent a 90 minute medical check-up and the doctor who conducted the exam pronounced him in “excellent health” but said he needed to continue his efforts to stay away from cigarettes, according to a White House statement.

“The President is in excellent health and ‘fit for duty,'” said White House Physician Jeffrey Kuhlman said in a statement. “All clinical data indicate he will remain so for the duration of his Presidency.”

Kuhlman said Obama was using “nicotine replacement therapy” in his efforts to kick the habit.

Obama, who frequently plays basketball and golf, also is taking a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory to deal with occasional pain from chronic tendinitis in his left leg, and Kuhlman also recommended an exercise regimen to help him strengthen his leg muscles.

Kuhlman’s report said Obama’s pulse rate was 56 and his blood pressure 105 over 62, which are considered to be very good numbers. While the report on his cholesterol was also good, Kuhlman recommended that Obama modify his diet to bring down his bad cholesterol which can form plaque that hardens and narrows the arteries.

Obama was also given a virtual colonoscopy, a scan that avoids the more invasive procedure that uses as camera passed into the large intestine, and was found to be free of any sign of cancer

Note.……The Marine One chopper he’s shown boarding….. has be older than the Secret Service agent and Marine driver in the picture……
