I think everyone has a fair idea of which area of the political spectrum I park my ass at, and I'm fairly apathetic to political ploys and bickering to a point. I have to say I'm quite disappointed with Conservatives that are lambasting the photos and videos of the president working out. Sean Hannity of Fox News commented on how small his weights were and how bad he was straining. Even remarking that the president in no way could keep up with his own martial arts workouts.
How about instead of goofing on the guy for how little the weights are and cracking jokes, why not applaud a guy for getting exercise? We are in a fucking obesity epidemic in the US, picking on the guy for working out goes beyond the pale of politics and is nothing more than a case study in bullying. In my mind it is honestly tantamount to bodybuilders shitting on a new guy in the gym who is just trying to get into shape. Encourage people to exercise, be healthy, and better themselves. At some point in time we all sucked at something but then we (hopefully) got better and encouragement can help a lot.
