A President and a pussy

Really not that hard to tell who's who:


Now, I'm not that big a fan of President Putin, either. Yes, he's certainly a far manlier man than Odoofuss is... but that doesn't strike me as much of a bar to clear. There are 120lb girls at my martial arts school who wear pink shirts on the mat and scrunchies in their hair that are manlier than he is.

He's also an authoritarian who appears to care little for the rule of law, and who appears to have done quite little to reduce his people's crippling dependence on oil and natural gas.

So how about we do a comparison between a truly great American President, and the current jug-eared twit?

This is what the New Yorker, certainly no fan of ol' Dusty, has to say about Mr. Reagan's physique and presence:
In 1988, at seventy-seven years of age, the President stood six feet one and weighed a hundred and ninety pounds, none of it flab. He boasted that any punch aimed at his abdomen would be jarringly repulsed. After a lifetime of working out with wheels and bars, he had broadened his chest to a formidably walled cavern forty-four inches in circumference. He was a natural athlete, with a peculiarly graceful Algonquin gait that brought him into rooms almost soundlessly. No matter how fast he moved (that big body could turn on a dime), he was always balanced.  
One recalls how elegantly he choreographed Mikhail Gorbachev up the steps at the 1985 Geneva summit: an arabesque of dark blue flowing around awkward gray. Reagan loved to swim, ride, and foxtrot. (Doris Day remembers him as “the only man I ever knew who really liked to dance.”) Eleven weeks after nearly dying in the assassination attempt of 1981, he climbed onto the springboard at the Camp David swimming pool and threw a perfect half pike before anybody could protest.
Of course, pictures are always the best proof, and here is the evidence of Mr. Reagan's actual stature. The first two pictures are taken directly from an article he wrote for Parade magazine about his physical exercise routine. The article is worth reading in its entirety, just to get an idea of how ridiculously strong President Reagan was, well into his late seventies and early eighties:




Hard to believe now, I know, but there was a time when this country had a real badass in charge.

Thirty years later, this is what we have instead:

Dear Lord. His wife is more of a dude than he is.

  1. I'm no fan of either Putin or Obama, but is this for real? Displaying courtsey by bowing makes you un-manly? Not doing Judo or not riding a bike makes you feminine? Seriously?

    And being a megalomaniac clown who tries so damn hard to prove himself "Manly" (taking shirtless pictures, 'shooting' a tiger which had been pre-tranquilised for him), is super-macho?

    Damn,how old are you Didact? Sorry to say, but this reads like the whining of a wimpy 15-year old with high-school ideas of "masculinity"

  2. Ugh, above reply hits all feminist tropes at once except for dick size.

    Wait until Canada elects Trudeau Monday to see a left wing pussy in action.
