I remember my gf making me watch vids of Bush junior that were exactly the same.
Sharp and smart when young and not yet POTUS, then insanely dumb and unable to string a sentence together.

Edit: Add on
I am liking Obama better speaking in this tone and state for some reason. He seems more humble and patient IMO
On another note... If Romney rudely speaks over and interrupts the speaker one more time he should get rusty harpoon thrown at his face.edit on 4-10-2012 by unb3k44n7 because: (no reason given)

All you have to do is look at the presidents hair. That might sound like an odd answer. But if you noticed when he started as president he had black hair, now almost 4 years later its almost all grey. His job is #l1 stressful job on the planet earth. I remember see ing him a few days after he became president and his hair all of a sudden began to turn grey almost over night. Why would this happen? Id say it happened right after he got his first national security meeting. And learned about all the real nasty stuff that goes on in the world. The stuff regular citizens are not privy too.
Also, could be possibly due to the fact we have ruffly 2 months and some days before the 2012 event? yeah I know its been beat to death here on ATS. But what if..he knows something he can't talk about due to national security. What would he say to the american people or the world.
he wouldn't say anything, it would cause mass chaos, all the goverments of the world would fall, and it wouldn't matter cause there would be no place to run to or hide. Could it be that he knows only a fraction of the best trained minds of our time will be sent to the underground bunkers, but the majority of the citizens will have to survive on there own? That would make me grey as well.
Course there is another option, wouldn't anyone being in the #1 stressful job on the planet have an off day, if you were constantly followed by a military officer carrying the "football". This is the case that can launch 20,000 Nuclear missiles, at anytime night or day. That in itself would make my hair go grey within a 4 year period.
So he had an off day, Id say he's earned the off day, and we shouldn't say ill of the man. He does have the #1 stressful job on the planet.
My point of view, a little bit off your subject
Cut the president some slack..

I did watch the debates along with millions of others and it seems a lot easier for someone to challenge the person in power since the challenger is really not aware of all the knowledge a sitting president possesses.
No matter who gets elected it's for sure they have to tough road ahead. All the gridlock in Washington makes it nearly impossible to get down to business and do the peoples work. I hope that whoever wins finds a way to get past all the childish behavior and start solving problems
Mitt Romney's Big Bird Attack Threatens Thousands Of U.S. Jobs
On Facebook, the character's name was mentioned more times than words like "Obamacare" and "taxes" during the debate.
Toy business experts say that Big Bird and other "Sesame Street" characters are profitable enough not to need loans from China. Hasbro, the toy company behind Muppet Monopoly and Let's Rock Elmo, generates $70 to $75 million a year in revenue from "Sesame Street" properties, estimates Gerrick Johnson, an analyst at BMO Capital Markets.
