Lookin' good for a man in his 50s.

It's funny how the only not-in-shape president in the past hundred years is the one who made the ladies swoon. If I had a time machine I would make in-their-prime Gerald Ford, the two Bushes and Obama compete in an American Gladiators competition. That would be fun. That would be a good use of a time machine.

No big surprise that a Kenyan is a big runner.

For sure. If he was a real American he'd be riding a Rascal scooter to all those appearances. I bet the guy doesn't even have Type II diabetes. What a fraud.

Dave, you are so right. That would be a very good use of a time machine. I'd especially love to see who runs the Gauntlet successfully.

Oof, I don't know. The wheelchair would be a solid base for the joust, but I don't like his chances going up the pyramid.

Speaking of which, we need to bring back polio so we can have a thriving wheelchair industry again. Roosevelt had great wheelchairs... oak, maple, teak. Today's wheelchairs are so utilitarian. Where's the style?

Ugh, okay fine. We'll get Roosevelt some fingerless gloves and he's in.
