    Is electing a medically fat US President sending the wrong message to US children?

    Is electing a medically fat US President sending the wrong message to US children?

    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?

    Is electing an incompetent unqualified person to be President just because he can read a speech written by someone else from a teleprompter with enthusiasm sending the wrong message?

    I would be more concerned about that, than if the person has gained weight - because weight is sometimes due to a medical issue, like menopause in the case of Hillary, or Thyroid in the case of Christie.

    Electing incompetence is the fault of the ignorant electorate. That, IS a problem, and should send a loud message to us all.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    First off they're both fat because of lifestyle choices that led to any mentioned conditions that might have deteriorated their health more so.


    Children don't see all your analytic stuff though. They look at the TV and see a medically fat person running the world. In charge of the nuclear submarines. Running everyone's lives. Is that really the correct message US children should be having in their minds as they stare at the TV? I say no. Not only do I say no but I say that something is seriously wrong with our society if the answer could possibly be yes.

    You're their doctor? How do you know it was lifestyle choices? Enlighten us with your unique intellectual insight and capabilities... please.

    Are you their doctor? They're fat due to unhealthy lifestyles and you know this.

    I would say this is a red herring. Competence and the ability to govern has nothing to do with weight. Although I would imagine Christie would lose the "He doesn't doesn't look presidential vote." That is exactly how my wife decides who to vote for, the person whom looks in her mind, like a president should.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Yes but the question of the poll is, do you think it sends the wrong message to US children health wise?

    I'd take a smart fat person who had the right goals over an idiot or someone easily bought any day.

    No, I do not think it does. And frankly, how the president appears should be of less significance than it is.

    Seriously? Is this a joke?

    What about the "message" sent to children when the leader is a liar, cheater, warmonger, narcissist, shady-mcgrady douche? We've had plenty of those!

    "But GUUUURL... He look GOOOOOD."

    Oh, the humanity! Think of the children!

    If my choice of son was between Chris Christie and Arnold Schwarznegger, it's Chris all the way. I'll take the fat guy dancing it up with Jamie Foxx over the married bodybuilder that screwed his maid every time.
