Then and Now: An Interactive Barack Obama

Tyler Durden's picture

It seems four years of centrally-planning the US economy wears on a man. As WaPo notes, now his face has deeper creases and crow’s feet, while his hair has turned white. "You look at the picture when they’re inaugurated and four years later, they're visibly older," said Connie Mariano, White House physician from 1992 to 2001. "It's like they went in a time machine and fast-forwarded eight years in the span of four years."

Then: raising the debt ceiling is awful!

Now: NOT raising the debt ceiling is awful.

Look'n more and more like John Marshall Davis everyday.  Criminal then, criminal now.

Central Planning has nothing to do with it... He's clearly lost his putting stroke... Not stroking the 3 footers like he used to... Having the putting "yips" wears on a man...

  Great interactive showing the President in so many pics...The weight of the responsibility begins to show with the deep lines  
This gives me pause about the age of those next to be nominated...

  He is improving. Immensely. His politics are more defined, focused, his messaging is being routed to the people rather than clinging to the naive notion that goopers are going to do anything at all to cooperate and do their job. He is pounding the bejesus out of the goopers and they’re going to lose in 2014 because of it. He has vastly improved in many ways since 2009.

ugh... centralized government.  The Constitution should be revised to eliminate Federal government.  Although their roll is to protect Liberty, *I* would rather have that responsibility.  DECENTRALIZE!  Then if a State or region agrees to the Document they can join.  If they want to leave then leave.

Thats what he meant when he said "change"

THX 1178's picture

You mean when his slogan was coined by his handlers? Yeah... we here at the top know what's what. We wrote the book on what's what. Its called "The Who's Who of What's What." There's some change a comin'.

hell is the impossibility of reason, so says Oliver Stone

can anyone give a legitimate reason for raising the debt limit.  The intended/unintended consequences are inevitable.  So it is written so let it be done.

It's all in the eyes; focus on nothing else.

And watch the life drain-away.

Dreams fromy real Dad, a card carrying communist.

I would imagine that the reality of having to go home and shag that but-nasty wife of his cannot be good for a man.

it's from spending all that extra time in the alternate dimension with the nibiruans using HAAAARP

francis_sawyer's picture

He's been doing that for a reason... He's trying to come up to speed on "ray gun" technology so he can put a BAN on them when they come to market...

These clones wear out quite fast, they worked better in old times.

This man adds new definition to shape shifting reptilian.

I still would like to know what is up with those bizarre purple lips of his.

Damn, that monkey is UGLY!

francis_sawyer's picture

ass kissing is scientifically known to cause that effect...

Dubious Maximus's picture

now, do you feel better calling him by that name?

francis_sawyer's picture

Careful 'ak' ~ That's why 'Jimmy the Greek' isn't on TV any more to handicap NFL games...

azzhatter's picture

I'd prefer to see what he looks like after 8 years of prison

Isn't executive murder a capital crime?

Just wondering ...

I half expected to see a dick in a paper bag, and then a dick outside the bag where everyone could see it.

I suppose I'll have to settle for this Dorian Gray version.

Divided States of America's picture

Looks like Golem and Schmegal....but talks like Schemegal in front of the camera but has the mind of Golem when hes making decisions about the welfare of the American people.

Also he is secretly hoarding his precious

Imagine how he'll look after his 5th term

Rainman's picture

Waking up everyday in search of someone to blame takes a toll on a man.

akak's picture

Wow, do you think that AnAnonymous is actually OBAMA?!

eatthebanksters's picture

When you spend all your waking hours lying and then lying more to cover up the original lies it turns you into a smoker!  He's looking like a stressed out smoker...wonder what he smells like...

akak's picture

Rumor has it that they smell like marshmallows ... but I wouldn't know from personal experience. 

(That is, of course, quite aside from the additional smell of cigarettes.)

"Then: raising the debt ceiling is awful! Now: NOT raising the debt ceiling is awful."

It's true. Obama is a Reneger.

SheepDog-One's picture

Good I hope he suddenly dries up and blows away like the Nazi guy in Indiana Jones The Last Crusade when he drank from the wrong Grail.

BKbroiler's picture

He has been scientifically engineered to turn into Morgan Freeman by 2016, at which point no one will be able to recognize him and hold him accountable for anything.  He'll just sign an autograph and laugh it off.

DavidC's picture

Unfortunately he's not an idiot, that's why he's more dangerous than Bush was.


lolmao500's picture

People THOUGHT that Bush was an idiot, that was he was dangerous. Bush was a puppet... so looking like an idiot was perfect.

Obama looks like he's ``doing it for the childrenz``... so it's a different tactic but it's as bad...

Stoploss's picture

That's how you look when the devil fucks you in the ass every night..

Harbanger's picture

Hold him accountable for what?  He is without sin.

krispkritter's picture

Was kinda hoping for it to be Michael Jackson. That way he'd be wearing a mask all the time and it'd be cool to watch him Moonwalking in his prison duds...

Golf has a way of wearing on you.

I was going to say he probably needs to drink more baby blood, or perhaps try unicorn tears.
