US Presidents before and after

US Presidents before and after

Here is what President Barack Obama might look like when he leaves office in eight year's time:

Obama after serving as president

Seems that being the president of the United States is such a stressful job that the wear and tear causes them to age twice as fast as an average person unless they maintain a very healthy lifestyle.

Though Obama has what it takes to overcome all this, his time in office may be the toughest we've seen in a while. Dealing with an ever-worsening global financial crisis and a serious situation developing in and around the Middle East, he'll have his hands full and all this could take its toll.

I have to wonder, is this kind of stress and accelerated aging common for all rulers? Can't be true for all rulers. Just look at our excuse for a prez. Wouldn't it have been a lot greater for other great leaders in history? How did the Prophets deal with it? Prayer? How did people like Alexander and the Caesars do (well, most of them did go a little crazy)?

Oh, do check out the Xerxy fun blog. Updated quite regularly with other fun stuff like the above.

If he gets re-elected for a second term, he will be. All depends on how he delivers his promise of change.

Don't see why not, you people voted the last bonehead in there for two terms and LOOK WHERE WE ARE NOW!!!!

The last bonehead told you this economic downturn was coming. He tried to stop the collapse of Fannie and Freddie and Obama, Reid and Pelosi Stopped him and the Republicans. You seem to forget that up until the elections of 2006 things were humming along. Then the Democrats took over congress in 2006 and the country has gone to hell in a hand basket. The economic collapse was orchestrated by Democrats not by Bush. The only bone head here is you for thinking this is a Republican Caused problem. Obama has spent more money in 50 days than this country has spent in its HISTORY. Now who is the bonehead.

You really need to get your news from some place besides Fox News.

@Jim Dicken

Well said sir, well said.

The only thing that I would like to clarify factually about your statement is that Pelosi and Reid and Frank, amongst others, are only part of the problem. Other Democrats such as Jimmy Carter, and those who instituted the Fair Housing Act, which mandated loans to people with a low credit rating, also caused this mess. That's not to mention the people who took out the loans that they couldn't afford.

And let's not leave the Republican administrations out of this, either! It was implemented under Richard Nixon, I believe, or LBJ, and 4 Republican administrations failed to repeal it. In the 70s, the act expanded under Jimmy Carter to include other minorities, many of whom were poor and had very poor credit

You are neither informed nor particularly intelligent, judging by the content of your comment.

@JAW

Like where? Maybe the Daily Kos? FOX isn't really that biased, sir...I watch their news the most, but I also tune in a lot to Charlie Gibson and Brian Williams, and I also sometimes force myself through Keith Olbermann's show.

That, sir, is bias. FOX News? Eh, not so much.

What the hell? Damn website cut off half of my comment...here's the rest.

Why is this so important? The banks which handed out these federally-mandated loans also had their fingers in many other economic pies, and when these were withdrawn to hold the housing bubble together, all of the other "pies" collapsed, leading us to our current crisis.

The Honeybee “Nahel Asul” Abu Bin Adam was a young child in Multan Pakistan, it was July 11th 1977, the day was very hot and humid one of Abu’s friend from school decided to skip school for that day to go and eat fresh honey from bee hives. Abu and his friend decided to take the a few cows, buffalos, sheep’s and his friends dog Tommy for herding and their job was to keep eyes on the animals and take them to the river so they can eat and swim. Abu’s favorite ride was the bull ride by holding the bulls horns and Abu’s job was to keep eyes on the animals and to twist their tail whenever they slowed down. After few hours they got to the river and went to find the bee hives, within an hour later they were able to find an hive underneath a mango tree in a mango garden, Abu ne
