It’s pretty obvious that taking the role of president can age you hardcore, putting some pepper in your locks, wrinkles in your skin and bags under your eyes. Before and after pictures of some of our former commander-in-chiefs are startling in their differences, and that can be attributed to the stresses of making huge decisions and being expected to make the “right” decisions at all times. And of course, what is “right” depends on your political views. But as President Obama’s first term starts winding down, he still looks like a stud in our book. Now if he does two terms, we can’t promise anything…but right now, he’s aging gracefully. But it’s not like he’s looking for the public to fawn over him like so many women did in ’08, because according to President Obama, his wife’s approval is all he needs. In an interview with NPR, the President talked about his upcoming 50th birthday (on the 4th), and what his wife thinks about his looks:
“You know, I feel real good about 5-0. The – obviously, I’ve gotten a little grayer since I took this job but otherwise, I feel pretty good. And Michelle, you know, says that, you know, she – she — she still thinks I’m, I’m cute, you know. And I guess that’s — that’s all that matters, isn’t it?”
We think you’re still a stone cold fox too Barack. Wouldn’t you agree?
