President Obama got a checkup Sunday, and his doctor liked what he found.
"The president is in excellent health and 'fit for duty,'" Dr. Jeff Kuhlman, a Navy captain and physician to the president wrote in his report. "All clinical data indicate that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency."
The doctor did recommend Obama change his eating habits a bit. "Recommend dietary modification to reduce LDL cholesterol below 130," Kuhlman wrote. The report lists Obama's LDL level at 138. LDL, or low-density lipoprotein, is what's known as "bad" cholesterol, according to the American Heart Association.

What a HYPOCRYTE! Pushing a healthcare bill few people care for it, with a cancer stick in his mouth. This man is spiritually wicked, a polluted vessel. The man walks with Satan and is enemy of truth in light in Jesus Christ.
Still puffing away is he?

I'm glad to hear the president is in good health. Now if we could just the rest of the nation (including me) in better shape. According to many doctors, dietians and exercise gurus we are sorely out of shape and overweight. ~sigh~ Thank you Mr President for setting a good example. We need it.
