How four years in the White House have aged Obama
The Daily Mail ^ | 18 January 2013 | Snejana Farberov

Posted on 01/18/2013 9:10:29 AM PST by MinorityRepublican

Heavy and grey is the head that wears the crown - a lesson that President Obama and many of his predecessors have learned the hard way.

When Mr Obama takes the oath of office next Monday marking the beginning of his second term, it will not be the same smooth-cheeked, black-haired man who first joined the exclusive club of leaders of the free world in 2008.

Comparing pictures of the 51-year-old commander-in-chief from four years to those taken more recently reveals a startling yet obvious truth: standing at the helm of the U.S. government takes a heavy physical toll.

His last 5 years have aged me a hell of a lot more than they’ve aged him.

All that golf does take a toll on one.

All that golf and those multi-million dollar trips to Hawaii can be quite stressful. Think of the sun damage!

Leading the country couldn’t have been too bad for The Great Imposter since he’s hardly ever working.

If He’s going grey it’s because of the playing,Drinking and entertaining he’s done at our expense.

Yeah, he’s aged a bit. Too bad he’s never grown up though. He still believes in the Federal Tooth Fairy.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Rather than a reversal of physical aging, the mental outlook and moral fortitude of Our Illustrous & Fearless Leader(?) keeps reverting to an earlier and more infantile level. The endless rants, the demands, the total refusal to accept counsel or engage in useful exchanges with others, all point to a steadily diminishing capacity to recognize or properly verbalize problems which arise every day.

This cult of the presidency is retarded. Take a photo of any 45 or 50 year old man,,take another photo 5 to 8 years later. Everybody ages, but most of us don’t do it in front of a camera.
The presidency is not any more stressful emotionally than a thousand otehr jobs. Physically there is no stress at alll.

But they keep wanting us to see that the current Stalin in the white house is sacrificing his VERY health for us. lol

He has been applying a lot of the heavy orange greasepaint lately. People claim he is black, but I think that schmuck is orange.

The portrait of Barack Obama is hidden in an upper room of the White House.

While the subject of the painting is still handsome and youthful-looking in person, the portrait in the attic bears a face that is aging right on the canvas, gradually displaying all the sins he has committed, showing his evil nature and reflecting his inner ugliness.

When the portrait of Barack Obama is finally revealed to all, the horror of viewing it will be unspeakable.....but the ending will not be found here as a spoiler.

See your local TMC movie guide for listings of "The Picture of Barack Obama".

Me too, my friend. Me too. I have always been an optimistic, glass half full, happy person. The last four years had their impact...but losing in November has all but drained me. Looking to get some long overdue R&R, then come back swinging.

Two items which will cause most damage to your skin, make it leathery and full of wrinkles are...sun’s ultraviolet rays and booze. I was in Arizona a month ago and noticed the awful skin conditions of pale skinned older folks since they do not have the natural protection from Melanin in skin.

We all know king Obama has played more golf than all presidents before him, and has hosted more parties in the White House than others. So I am not surprised how he looks now after 4 years. Playing on all those private golf courses is very addictive. Ask me, I was member for 12 years. Now I play public courses since we moved, and it is never the same.

Using the presidential portrait as tbe “before” picture introduces a Photoshop bias. I bet no president looked as good as his presidential portrait, even when he was inaugurated.

Don’t forget he’s a smoker and smoking takes a heavy toll on one’s appearance over time.

He didn’t have a gray hair on his head the day after this past election. His barber must have forgotten the gray touch-up that day.

I know the last four years of his regime have
worn me down. Do not look with much joy to the
future. Of course we don’t know how much of his
appearance is just for effect, it wouldn’t be
beneath him.

I intend to live out his term and see him on
the scrap heap of history.

Have the pictures in the article been touched up? The first time we really saw this man was when he was the keynote speaker in the 2004 convention, and the one thing that stood out to me — were those purple lips. He had them for a while after he became prez, but then the make-up started.
The purple is mostly gone now — because it is covered up? The purple seems muted in the half/half picture.

Not lifting a finger in Bengazi is not that much of a workout. Swinging a club is way more important.

The before and after pictures of Lincoln really are shocking. I think if he hadn’t been murdered the job would have killed him.

like everything else with Zer0 it’s all fake.

It’s make-up. A man this vain would’nt allow his hair to go gray unless he wanted gray hair.

Call it the mature Zer0 statesman look.

Nah, Obama is barely over 100 rounds of golf so far. Woodrow Wilson played 1,200 rounds, Eisenhower 800 rounds.
