Obama’s Gray Hair Has Earned A 2nd Term

From ABC News:

First Lady Says Obama’s Gray Hair ‘Proof’ He Deserves Second Term

August 04, 2011

On the president’s 50th birthday, First Lady Michelle Obama says her husband’s ever graying hair is “proof” he’s handled his the job well, and deserves re-election in 2012.

“Every day, I see Barack make choices he knows will affect every American family,” Mrs. Obama said in an email blast to supporters. “That’s no small task for anyone — and more proof that he’s earning every last one of those gray hairs.”

Perhaps Mr. Obama is feeling guilt about his bad choices. Or maybe he is having qualms about destroying our country. Of course we are just kidding.

Still, just think about all the gray hair Obama has caused in other people. Some of those people might think differently about his re-election.

The message is the latest effort by the president’s re-election campaign to use the occasion of Obama’s birthday to energize his followers and, indirectly, encourage the contribution of their time and money in the months ahead.

“This next year will challenge us all to work harder than ever before,” Mrs. Obama said, “but the crucial thing is that you’re here now, early on, helping to build this campaign.”

The first lady said she and her daughters wanted supporters to send birthday wishes to the president by signing an electronic card.  

“Your names and notes will become part of a book that tells the story of this campaign — who’s building it, why we’re in this thing, and what he means to us,” she said. “We’ll deliver a copy to Barack and send one to our campaign offices across the country.”

Or, more accurately, their names and email addresses will become part of their database for fundraising spam.

The first family will celebrate the president’s milestone birthday at two private events with friends and staff at the White House today. Last night, Obama attended two birthday-themed campaign fundraisers in Chicago and spoke via video conference to more than 1,160 grassroots house parties in his honor around the country.

Work, work, work.

    He had gray hair before he was elected. He just colored it, that’s all. There are photos of him with “varying” levels of gray hair. We asked about this in 2008/9. So he has just stopped coloring it so that in three blindingly fast but painful years, he appears to be the “elder statesman” and gives off the look that he’s been stressed.

    To that I reply, Golf, vacations, more golf, fundraising, golf, jaunting about on AF 1, showing up for “work” at 10AM or later….or not showing at all to …..play golf.

    Yes, he’s so stressed. Stalin was stressed too. And I’m sure Mao as well. But, look at Castro…talk about stressed.

      Too bad he doesn’t have some gray matter to go along with it.

      With all of the time he takes off for all those things you list above, he doesn’t have time to be stressed.

      Too bad he has to be cursed with that “typical white hair”, huh?

      TOUCHE’…….. grunt!

    Everything about the guy is a lie.

    The color of his hair is tested in focus groups.

    He probably has a dozen full-time staffers doing research on what his personal appearance should be.

    Paints a picture of the Obamas as Carnival workers; working booths by shouting step right up and win a stuffed animal.

  4. TerryAnne says:

    Did Michelle not say just a few scant weeks ago that she didn’t care if Dear Hubby was reelected or not?

    Funny how she has a sudden change of heart when it comes down to physical appearance matters.
