We are near NYC so we get the New York Post.
(I love reading it!
)

Here is the cover picture today.




Obama - TWO WEEKS as president. He looks tired. He looks old already.
The job ages people. The before and after shots are incredible.
But it's rather early for him to look this haggard.
While on the campaign trail no one questioned 'The One'.
He was a rock star. But now he's got people to answer to. US!
Perhaps the honeymoon is over early?
He told the kids that he was at the school because he had to
'get out of the white house for a while'. That's what the TV news says.

The Issues - Obama aged already? Obama tired from work?
Obama worn out already?

edited to add what TV said.

the ny daily news has a nice story about this as well. talking about how his detractors are saying he, and his team, are starting to show the inexperience they all warned about.

the reporter talks about how the man of change is giving us politics as usual with the tax dodging nominees.

He's been President for a month?? I thought it was just 2 weeks and a day.....

He does look pretty haggard, though. He doesn't wear scrutiny well.

You are right. I'll change it. I was thinking January to February ... but you have the number of days correct.



He doesn't wear scrutiny well.

My thoughts exactly.

Obama looks like he is thinking of all those favors he has to repay. Two weeks and a day on the new job and already needs to get out of the White House for awhile.

I don't envy him.

Also talk of placing the bar too high...

Gotta wonder... it can't all be Obama's advisers. Perhaps there are not as many sheeple as he thought?

Jay Leno had a clip of the Lauer Super Bowl "chat"... When asked if lauer could see Obama's Blackberry, Obama said he left it upstairs, didn't bring it...
Then the Blackberry started ringing-

The look on Obama's face was priceless.


What am I to think?

Maybe he saw these polls -

Gallup Poll - civility tone


President Barack Obama came to office making the time-honored promise to raise the level of political discourse in Washington, but thus far, most Americans don't see that his promise is panning out


Gallup Poll - US Satisfaction


Only 17% of Americans are satisfied with the way things are going in the country in Gallup Poll Daily tracking from Jan. 27-29; 80% are dissatisfied.
Geee ... inauguration hangover?


But what gets me is what he said to the kids. According to the TV news he told the kids he 'had to get out of the White House for a while'. That tired attitude is reflected in the picture.

I


These polls are stupid... VERY stupid.

It doesn't amaze me that the sheeple want to blame republicans for the no 'change' in Washington.

Even though we are outnumbered. Looks like my work is not yet done..

Priceless thread!
At least he isn't wearing an keister kissing fake smile. The guy has been in for two weeks. The GOVT doesn't change in two weeks. Who in there right mind can expect opinion polls on the direction of our country to say anything other than we are dissatisfied??????

The country was perfect when Bush/Cheney left???????

there's more spin in here than in my avatar.

Looks like he's dragging his butt everywhere he goes.

Story Here

He's late for everything. Combine that with looking so dang tired in the picture AND him telling the kids he 'had to get out of the white house for a while' ...
.... only two weeks in and the pace of the job is too much for him.

All he's done is run for office. Now he's got to perform.
It's tired him out.


Obama has been routinely late to events and news conferences, including the ones at which he reversed Bush's orders. This has led to an already familiar refrain from the Obama camp: "He's running late."

The president was nearly 30 minutes late Wednesday for the ceremony at which he signed a bill to expand children's health care. He was 10 minutes late Thursday to a memo signing at the Energy Department. ...

"To me, being tardy, it's got to be one of two things," said presidential historian Doug Wead, who advised both Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush. "Bad organization that can be corrected, or it's arrogance. It sounds to me like this is arrogance."

Good thread.

I think to say that he looks tired would be an understatement.

I well, think that he looks a little frustrated.

He looks frustrated that the change that he wants to implement is going to be a lot harder to implement than he thought it would be like.

Obama has only been President for two weeks or so. It looks like he's worn out because of all that's going on that he can't change just by his simple speech.

He does look tired, but he's got a lot of stuff on his plate.
When Bush was in the white house, he was in bed by 10. Obama is working late into the night sometimes past 10pm. I think he needs to relax, like previous posters said, you can't change this overnight.

Interestingly, from the articles you posted, the ratings of satisfaction are higher than prior to the inauguration up from 13%

In addition, the majority of the respondents say that they feel republicans are the reason for problems with the civility in Washington. Sour grapes maybe?

Ya he looks worried

I like having a president who can worry
worry makes you want to fix the problem so the worrying can stop
stopping the worry is the reward when you do something right


I noticed the last guy never had a care in world

guess that means he didn't care enough to worry

I think it shows that he's acting (at least right now) in the interests in the people. He's worried to death at what the consequences of it all could be. You never saw that emotion from Bush (I'm not being a partisan hack here). But I agree. It's good to have a leader that can empathize with our emotions.

If I was facing the mess that he is facing -
I would look tired too.

He's not late, he's just running on BPT.


i swear you to you this is a real phenomenon. Most black people will tell you what this means. Not HATE SPEECH. this thing really happens.

My buddy Jeff suggested this before the inauguration, he said, " i wouldn't be suprised if Obamas late" i had a good laugh, told him to go try to bet on it.

But seriously, the mans working at a job thats way bigger than what he is used to. Remember, he was only a junior senator. Now he's POTUS. id be tired too. Shoot, the mans running a country. This ain't no weekend car wash thing.

i don't like the guy, but i wont say he can't handle it, he just needs time to get used to the position.

Love and Peace

Of course he can't. It's not like the campaigns where the media had his back on every interview. Now he's actually got to work and those "magic speeches" aren't working on other politicians. Combined with the media and Hollywood hype those words might work on the average American. But politicians can recognize being served bull# because they're so good at dishing it out.
