"The Unbearable Lightness of Leading" by John Kenney in the NYT 3-7-10
One oddity of the report: Mr. Obama weighed 179.9 pounds with his shoes and workout attire on, which is not the usual way to measure a patientâ��s weight.
â�� The Times, March 1
KATIE COURIC (in studio): â��Whatâ��s the president hiding?â�� This question from senior members of the Republican Party, who are outraged tonight at what theyâ��re calling the presidentâ��s â��purportedâ�� weight. In a hastily called news conference, the Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, said he would call on Congress to convene a bipartisan panel made up entirely of Republicans to investigate the presidentâ��s weight:
MITCH McCONNELL (at news conference): This president claims to weigh 179.9 pounds. How do we know thatâ��s true? He wore shoes and workout pants and a jacket and a T-shirt and some kind of presidential undergarment. What is that garment? How much does it weigh? How do we know that he wasnâ��t wearing long underwear to add bulk to his delicate frame? Why is this administration so secretive when it comes to its own weight? â�� â��CBS Evening Newsâ��
