Let’s take a corpulent patient, Uncle Sam, to illustrate how the Obama diet really works.
For many years prior to 2001 Uncle Sam’s weight was fairly steady at 150 pounds. From 2001 to 2008 Sam’s weight was on a continuous upward trajectory and he tipped the scales at 260 pounds at the end of 2008. From that point forward Uncle Sam’s weight has ballooned to 480 pounds and he becomes more rotund each year.
