Sorry for the light posting today. Will catch up when I get home. In the mean time, apparently Obama told a fat staffer to eat a salad:
One staffer was conspicuously overweight. The president, in an incident that Wolffe believes proves how caring the man is, took it upon himself to present the aide with a salad for lunch — “then listened to him protest that he could take care of his own health. ‘I love you, man,’ Obama said. ‘I want you to look after yourself. Eat the salad.’ ”
That tells you all you need to know right there. That also tells you all you need to know about Richard Wolffe and other Obama supporters like him, that this was taken as compassion rather than butting one’s nose into business it does not belong. This prompted Jim Geraghty to say:
Chris Christie for President: Because the commander-in-chief and leader of the free world should never be telling you to eat a @#$%^ salad.
We haven’t had a rotund president since Taft. Maybe it’s time.
