As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama Goes to Pentagon for “Fitness Exam”

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.

    • “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…

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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”

    • 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 ….

      • 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.

      • “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,

  4. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.-

      • 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…

    • 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…

      • 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.

  5. 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.

      • 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….

  6. 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…

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

    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

  9. 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

  10. 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.

    • 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…

        • 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!

  11. 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.

    • 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.

  12. He’s going to get the electrodes in his cerebral cortex recalibrated. Look at all the scars on his head. Pyscho-surgery to fine tune the lizard.

  13. This is a outstanding firefall gold!!! I’ve this during off white in addition to being the complete package deal. This looks like the slipper, it is adorable!!!! It’s hard to not work out.
