I could not agree more. ( and not just b/c I'm a teacher )

Kudos to Bush for taking care of his body. The 50% of americans who are overweight could learn something from him.


As much as I hate Bush, why would you blame him for obesity???

Americans like driving way too much. They do not walk enough. And that, together with the amount of junk food, makes Americans one of the most obese population in the world.

although you wouldn't know it judging by the lunches offered in school cafeterias.

Eventhough I just can't stand Bush, I do agree with your statement. Good health starts at home and parents are allowing kids to eat too much junk and in a lot of cases, are not setting a good example for good health. I teach and kids are getting bigger and bigger every year and these big kids have big parents. I just dont have any sympathy for it! Eat right and join a gym.

Sweating Your Way to the Inner Circle

The Economist reviews President Bush's exercise habits and concludes "enthusiasm for sport can be a ticket to Mr Bush's inner circle." For example, Condoleeza Rice "works out with the president and spends time at Camp David watching baseball and football on television."

But "a poor physique can test the president's patience. When Mr Bush sacked Larry Lindsey, his portly economic adviser during his first term, he apparently complained in private about his failure to exercise."
