    Has anyone noticed how grey a President becomes during his term in office.? I'm not just remarking about Obama, but all the Presidents, they all turn grey. The job just ages them and I know this isn't a subject generally discussed. Republican or Democrat, he's still our President and I think we owe a little or more than a little respect.

    Excellent post Dubie,it's the total stress factor,Americans in general are never really satisfied with anyone who does the premier job.

    If they spent more time whinging from their couch and actually DID SOMETHING,instead of relying on politicians......America would be a better place......maybe a third non aligned party would be a start......keeping the Bastards Honest on either side..just sayin..steve:cool:

    Mornin', Steve,
    It's more a matter of having something satisfying.

    I have noticed - Bush practically turned grey overnight. I think that was just after the September 11 attacks.

    Strange...I have always noticed with every prez since Reagan (as far back as I can remembe)r...I barely remember Carter, I was just a little girl then....but yes, being Prez brings major stress...he's only one person.
    The greying comes on quick too...I noticed the greying of O in his third year...google the Prez's in their before Prez and after Prez's pix...in just 4 years, which is relatively a short time, it seems as if they aged years beyond their actual age.

    Leading a country where you steal trillions of dollars from citizens annually to fund bankrupt programs will do that to you

    Having to frequently decide who lives and who dies will do that to you.

    Why don't you get back on your knees and continue blowing him.

    When Obama does something worthy of respect, I'll give it.
