Obama Goes to Pentagon for “Fitness Exam”

by Keith Koffler on January 12, 2013, 10:33 am

This is odd. I’ve never heard of the president going to the Pentagon for a “fitness exam.” From the pool report:

From a WH official:

Today, the President is participating in a routine fitness evaluation at the Fit to Win Clinic located inside the Pentagon’s DiLorenzo TRICARE Health clinic. The fitness evaluation is part of the periodic medical exam that is coordinated by the Physician to the President.  The results of the President’s periodic medical exam will be released before the end of the month.

Maybe it’s different from the usual physical exam a president gets at Bethesda Naval Medical Center. But as far as I’m aware, this is something new.

This assumes it is exactly what they are telling us. It wasn’t posted on the official schedule. The bar is pretty high for getting Obama out of the White House on a Saturday morning – it usually has to be golf or something for his daughters.

The quick diagnosis: testosterone-challenged.

Sadie January 13, 2013 at 12:25 am

Constitutionally-challenged.

CAR January 12, 2013 at 11:20 am

I say he’s definitely not fit.

cincycinco January 12, 2013 at 1:17 pm

“I say he’s definitely not fit.” – CAR

you stopped two words short;
“I say he’s definitely not fit.”…FOR DUTY!

On mental grounds, at least. BUT, that means Prezzy Biteme!

Now you know why he keeps that guy around…

Shofar January 12, 2013 at 11:28 am

They need to check the chip and make sure it is still functioning properly.

Sorry, just watched the Manchurian Candidate the other day.

I’m really surprised that he would go to the Pentagon, given his disdain for the military and how he uses them as photo op props.

DeniseVB January 12, 2013 at 12:21 pm

I’ve got to see that movie again :)

Nervous Nellie January 12, 2013 at 11:36 am

Who cares? It’s all lies and deception, anyway.

gracepmc January 12, 2013 at 11:43 am

Probably some kind of PR gesture for Moochelle’s fitness nonsense. Ironic in that tricare is being limited and cut back in some cases. But no cutbacks in healthcare for federal workers.

Julie Brueckheimer January 12, 2013 at 11:54 am

Is there one for mental fitness?

Quintus Arrius January 12, 2013 at 11:58 am

Actually “fitness test” encompasses a lot of meanings. Perhaps he no longer feels members of his all-male possey are not a challenge anymore in hoops. Mixing up his game and finding willing travelling teams at the Pentagon may be what this is all about.
Being 50 years+ and still worrying about his own personal fitness and his “inside game” when the nation he sworn to defend from all enemies foreign and domestic is lerching along on EBT life-support is by definition “Narcisstic”

DeniseVB January 12, 2013 at 12:20 pm

That’s what I thought, hoping it’s fitness to be CinC of the military :)

On a Saturday morning? It’s not like he doesn’t have the time during the week.

Then I thought, maybe it’s a procedure, like a colonoscopy or stress test, but those would be done at Bethesda ?

Curiouser and Curiouser ….

Star January 12, 2013 at 12:29 pm

They give anesthesia for colonoscopies–and temporary turnover to the VP–I seem to recall this in Bush’s case, anyhow. My brother had a colon deal with no anesthesia–but my brother is weird.

Julie Brueckheimer January 12, 2013 at 4:25 pm

The anesthesia is mostly to prevent embarrassment. I’ve had friends like your brother who don’t seem to mind. Not me.

cincycinco January 12, 2013 at 1:14 pm

“That’s what I thought, hoping it’s fitness to be CinC of the military :)” – DeniseVB

He’s NEVER been fit to be CinC. Mentally, anyway…

As for the colonoscopy, they need that to find his next Cabinet appointee.

The stress test is for we peasants. Every day. Because of HIM,

Susan January 12, 2013 at 12:06 pm

Big farce. Not like the government cabal would tell the American people the truth about this pathological narcissist anyway…

Star January 12, 2013 at 12:17 pm

Another brag. Whatever. He looks too spindly to me to be fit. Well, maybe fit as a piccolo.

Star January 12, 2013 at 12:18 pm

Does he have to climb a wall or go under barbed wire with assault rifles firing overhead. Come on, we deserve some theatre–I mean, some MORE theatre. We’re getting bored.

ImNoDhimmi January 13, 2013 at 8:11 am

How about a shot of Barry, in all his glory, bare chested and carrying a gun, a la President Putin?

On second thought……

Susan January 13, 2013 at 10:27 am

He’d have to be riding a horse for the full Putin effect…

My guess is Barry would screech like a little girl if he got anywhere near a horse…

cincycinco January 13, 2013 at 12:36 pm

Use Mooch instead. She’s pretty manly.

Susan January 13, 2013 at 2:54 pm

A bare chested Mooch? Where’s my brain bleach when I need it.

srdem65 January 12, 2013 at 12:21 pm

Just in case you were wondering what “Fit to Win” is :
http://www.dthc.capmed.mil/Care/SitePages/FitToWin.aspx

srdem65 January 12, 2013 at 12:28 pm

sorry. I logged off too fast.

Their normal hours are during weekdays, so this is a special trip.
They do urgent care, minor surgery, and a lot more.

Guess? if MrO wanted or needed secret care for some injury or illness this is where he would go for absolute privacy.

Star January 12, 2013 at 12:32 pm

Not to be argumentative–but this looks like urgent care or something. He has a hospital in the WH–what on earth does he need this for–it doesn’t seem to be some showboat wellness thing he can get points from.-

Susan January 12, 2013 at 12:44 pm

What a gig! Federal civil servants employed by the Pentagon not only get their triple digit salaries and bennies, they get free gym memberships and wellness diagnostics as well. Remember that when Obamacare’s IPAB (death panels) tells us proles we don’t NEED that cancer screening as often as we used to…

Sol January 12, 2013 at 12:21 pm

He should have the cancer I got.

Susan January 12, 2013 at 12:49 pm

God bless you, Sol. As much as I despise this man, wouldn’t wish that scourge on anyone…

Star January 12, 2013 at 12:51 pm

Yeah–me either…but I will be thinking of you, Sol.

cincycinco January 12, 2013 at 1:25 pm

May the Lord bless and heal you, Sol. I’ve lost two to that scourge just last year, so I agree with Susan and Star that I would not wish it on ANYBODY, no matter their evil. Stand still, and the Lord will deal with him, in due time and full measure. I understand you’re bitterness that swine prosper in this world, but don’t let it darken YOUR heart or imperil YOUR own salvation.

Keep in mind, though, that he is just the unpleasant symptom, not the disease. His supporters are the REAL cancer – on the body politic. We are watching the country slowly subccumb as the toxin of socialism metastizes, and the Government certainly isn’t going to pay for the radiation or chemotherapy to slow the spread until it’s far too late…

CiscoKid January 14, 2013 at 7:34 am

Very wise words. Especially the part of darkning our hearts and jeopardizing one’s salvation.
I’ll be spending the rest of the day reflecting on that thought.

Star January 12, 2013 at 12:53 pm

Why can’t they measure his waist–do his BMI (microscopic)–watch him getting out of a chair to judge stiffness or nimbleness–ask him what day of the week it is….All the half-baked nonsense they visit on us to see if we are fit to live.

cincycinco January 12, 2013 at 1:31 pm

–ask him what day of the week it is…. – Star

It is likely his answer would be something like 30 safar 1434 A.H.

http://www.islamicfinder.org/Hcal/index.php

You have to judge for yourself if that makes him mental…

Just2old January 14, 2013 at 9:07 am

Since 1987 we have been providing fitness and health education designed for all Pentagon active duty and civil service personnel.

We achieve this through clinical screenings, education, physiological testing and exercise programming for modifying unhealthy lifestyle risks and improving healthy ones.

The physiological testing would be interesting….

cincycinco January 12, 2013 at 1:09 pm

Is he STILL trying to find a cure for the fact that his 51 – year – old tukkis can’t keep up with LeBron James on the hardwood, or how he can be with Jay-Z sometimes and not HAVE hard wood??

I know, can’t tell THIS guy ANYTHING! Hey, why doesn’t he just pronounce himself healthy? Does he not need only speak for it to be so? Maybe autopen an executive order overriding the Lord’s will for his own personal health?

SURELY he has no feet of clay!

I wish him no ill. May he have a long, healthy life, long enough to see all his works overturned (about another 2 years, perhaps?); but mostly, may he stay hale and hearty, lest we wake up to news of our new President Biden tomorrow…

Star January 12, 2013 at 1:14 pm

At this rate, he will have to start holding onto the handrail when deplaning! The horror!

cincycinco January 12, 2013 at 1:40 pm

“At this rate, he will have to start holding onto the handrail when deplaning!” – Star

Deplaning? That’s just for his stuff, his possie, and his flunkies!

Obama himself just decends from on high, borne gently to earth on a zephyr…

Star January 12, 2013 at 2:36 pm

…hands a flappin’.

cincycinco January 12, 2013 at 2:59 pm

Or ears!!

Julie Brueckheimer January 12, 2013 at 4:21 pm

Maybe a President Biden would be more manageable.

Star January 13, 2013 at 11:02 am

He did say there was no “silver bullet” for the gun “problem.” What a card that man is.

cincycinco January 13, 2013 at 12:59 pm

BIden doesn’t have a problem with guns per se. He just doesn’t want the PEASANTS to have them, kinda for the same reason that medieval barons didn’t back in the day. It’s also the one thing that Hitler, Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung could agree on…

ImNoDhimmi January 14, 2013 at 11:06 am

Does he mean to be funny, or is he really that stupid and insensitive?

DeniseVB January 12, 2013 at 3:59 pm

This is the link to the Pentagon’s “Fit to Win” Clinic …

http://www.dthc.capmed.mil/Care/SitePages/FitToWin.aspx

I’m sure they could fit him in anytime during the week, but since they don’t have regular Sat. hours, maybe this was less of a headache for security?

Imagine, worrying about security at the Pentagon. Could also be the reason he had such a light schedule this past week, training for the test? It’s a program for all Pentagon employees and I imagine that includes the ladies. Is Michelle taking the test too ?

I googled Obama Fitness Test Pentagon and got nothing but the WH press releases as Keith highlighted above. What’s happened to the intellectual curiosity of our traditional media. The Red Flag should have been he’s doing this on a Saturday ! :D

JustWondering January 12, 2013 at 4:08 pm

The blood work should prove interesting.Ooops — forgot — there is no truth in the dysfunctional States of Obamaland

Margaret January 12, 2013 at 4:46 pm

Maybe he wants to use the Pentagon’s gym before he closes the place.

Not Nabob January 12, 2013 at 10:37 pm

Zinger…

cincycinco January 13, 2013 at 7:48 am

NO ZINGERS! They wrecked Hostess, remember?

Kate January 12, 2013 at 6:06 pm

My bet is he’s getting a fitness test to try to improve his game. I’d like to think it is something more serious, but I doubt it.

Gem January 12, 2013 at 6:56 pm

Whew! This is a site for seriously mentally defective readers. I am getting out of here in a hurry. God, I feel like I need a shower to get rid of the filth and hatred exhibited here. Ewwww

Mrs Compton January 12, 2013 at 7:07 pm

Sadie January 13, 2013 at 12:27 am

DeniseVB January 12, 2013 at 7:21 pm
Star January 13, 2013 at 11:04 am

Aw, Gem, it’ll be OK. Of course, you are probably gone to more polite and gentle sites and won’t see this.

Noma January 13, 2013 at 6:17 pm

good ridance

Langley Spook January 12, 2013 at 8:46 pm

Obama going to the Pentagon… thats nice considering Obama just announced the US ‘defeat’ and ‘retreat’ from Afghanistan yesterday.

Dont get me wrong… I blame Bush (04-08) and more importantly every Gen. & Adm. who never stood up and said the US should have fought and won (like Alexander The Great) in that stone-age sh#t hole called Afghanistan.

WNY_ROC January 12, 2013 at 9:44 pm

It might be that he’s going to a secret smoking clinic where he can puff away without his family seeing it.

Otis Driftwood January 12, 2013 at 9:49 pm

I was thinking.. Emergency Cranial Rectosis. Walter Reed was all booked up.

cincycinco January 13, 2013 at 8:20 am

He’s been pulling the Cabinet appointments out from so far up his colon that he probably damaged something when he yanked Hagel out. The continuing rectal seepage just became alarming on Saturday, since he knows anal bleeding pretty well from his visits to the bath house with Rahm and decided it wasn’t normal, even for him.

He needs to get it back into shape anyway, so he can go back in there for his gun control legislation and unconstitutional money stealing executive orders. After all, it was very hard for him to extract Obamacare from his neither regions. THAT one was wrapped around inside, clear up to his duodenum! So far, in fact, that there weren’t enough Dems to get it out, so they needed Arlen Spector on the daisy chain!

Since he repealed DADT, now he knows there are doctors at the Pentagon who can be trusted with the truth of the Presidential proclivities. That’s why he went there, those guys at Walter Reed are just too uptight…

Star January 13, 2013 at 11:05 am

Kinda gross–even for me, CC.

cincycinco January 13, 2013 at 12:54 pm

Sorry Star, but watching Obama “govern” is like watching sausages being made. You don’t want to see either one.

Nope, that’s not right. Sausages are very useful, and the industry is heavily regulated so they could NEVER get away with flouting the law as Obama has. Let’s try another one;

Sorry Star, but watching Obama “govern” is like watching an autopsy. It’s gross and all, but you need to lay out the pieces and find out where the failure was, to see if there’s a way to prevent a similar failure in future.

That’s a little better. Still not there, though. How about;

Sorry Star, but it’s sometimes necessary to lay out the way Obama “governs” in graphic terms, like the way the Faces of Meth Web site can be used to try to discourage the kids from trying it themselves before it’s too late. Both are just meant to show the failure in all it’s glory, in order to bridge the communications gap with low information individuals.

That’s my best try. You’re better at metaphor than me, though; maybe you have a suggestion?

Anyway, be strong, be blessed, and illegitimi non carborundum!

Darkangel January 13, 2013 at 1:14 am

I smell more rats in this than there are at a Florida Panthers playoff game.

DiLorenzo is not that big, and for them to open the place up on a Saturday is nigh on unheard of. Walter Reed can do practically everything, and it’s got parts of the hospital set up for executive medicine (i.e., generals and up), which I’m not sure if DiLorenzo does or not.

Going into a Monday-to-Friday clinic, on a Saturday, for an unusual test, and trying to keep it a secret? Something’s up.

Otis Driftwood January 13, 2013 at 11:04 am

probably trying to remove the chip Big Mo had inserted.

Star January 13, 2013 at 11:17 am

Wouldn’t issuing a press poll thing kind of negate secrecy?

Henry Hilger January 13, 2013 at 2:13 pm

Question, why does Obama come under tricare when he never served a day in the military, As a veteran, wounded in Vietnam I it this outrageous

Otis Driftwood January 13, 2013 at 6:02 pm

He doesn’t come under Tricare. The President’s Doctor or Physician is usually a military doctor of the Navy. They are staffed out of the WH under the WH Military Office (the same unit that runs all WH Communications).

“The White House doctor has an office inside the White House. The location of his or her medical unit plays an important role in keeping the President of the United States healthy. He or she also oversees a staff is typically composed of five military physicians, five nurses, five physician assistants, three medics, three administrators and one IT Manager. The White House Physician is metaphorically the “shadow of the President” because he or she is always close at hand whether the President is at the White House, overseas, on the campaign trail, or aboard presidential plane Air Force One. The Physician to the President protects the president’s health and may also perform emergency surgery.

The White House doctor is also responsible for providing comprehensive medical care to the members of the president’s immediate family, the Vice President, and the Vice President’s family. He or she may also provide medical care and attention to the more than 1.5 million visitors who tour the White House each year, as well as to international dignitaries and other guests of the President.

The medical office of the White House doctor is a “mini urgent-care center” containing a physician’s office, private examination rooms, basic medications and medical supplies, and a crash cart for emergency resuscitation. Air Force One is equipped with emergency medical equipment, an operating table, and operating room lights installed at the center of the presidential plane for emergency use by the White House doctor, but does not have an X-ray machine or medical laboratory equipment”

The current Doc is a Navy Captain. Each president pays for any of his medical expenses personally. He has always been afforded the use of any military medical facility going back as far as FDR.
