    But everything during Obama's term is Obama's fault.
    And you just said Reagan is not at fault.

    And I've gotten you to say Christie didn't matter but then he did Matter .

    The truth of the matter is that he is composed of a hell of a lot of "matter" .

    I don't recall having said that. Have a look around at many of my posts.

    Not singularly no.......

    How could it have fallen apart when you have attributed a thought process (Accusing me of thinking everything is Obama's fault, when I have not said such a thing) to me and THEN claimed to point out something that isn't there.

    You are so pathetic you are arguing with your own virtual reality version of my thoughts. YOU assign me a position on a particular subject and then proceed to argue with yourself (pretending its me).

    How freaking sad is that?

    We live in a perverse world where the cheaper food is, the more likely it is unhealthy.

    There's no real excuse for being overweight, if the cause is a lack of will.

    For example I myself am overweight (although not obese, so far as I know), and I freely admit that it's because I haven't mustered up the willpower to get in shape.

    There are, however, actual medical conditions which cause serious issues with weight, I understand.

    Bull****.

    We're talking about an overweight person as president, Christie is a potential candidate, of course he's relevant to the discussion, but only as an example. That has been my point this entire time, unless I'm recalling incorrectly.

    Children should not be looking up to POTUS's at all. If anything, they should be looking down on them (relatively speaking) with contempt and disgust.

    No matter who gets elected in 2016, IMO, they will be corrupt, incompetent and utterly useless as President.

    Such is the state of American federal politics.


    As for being overweight?

    I don't care what message it sends to children...I highly doubt some fit child is going to start pigging out because the POTUS is tubby.

    But it's bad for the POTUS to be fat.

    Being fat - especially past 50 - GREATLY increases the chance of stroke, heart attack and some cancers. I don't want the most powerful person in the world possibly being partially debilitated by a stroke or ongoing chemo treatments for cancer whose effects they keep from the public.

    Do people honestly think if a POTUS had a heart attack that they would not do everything they could to keep it secret - so as to not lose their job?
    The question is rhetorical because the answer should be obvious...of course they would.

    Should this even be allowed considering the health message it sends to US children that the leader of the free world can be medically fat?
    I would think it is very similar to electing a President that smokes...like the current President does. Or electing a President that frequently used hard drugs.

    So now it's the rightist "hack" card.
    I've truly done my best as a 30+ year Chemis-try/Physiques teacher to educate my students and other folks about the dangers of their poor diet.

    I've never seen a Libertarian-Right who doesn't complain about something in regards to health care and its costs.
    This is why I support Paul Ryan and Sen. Coburn much to the chagrin of my Democratic colleagures .

    Or a smoking Speaker that Paul Ryan complains about in his new book.
    He sits as far from him as possible .
