Dr. Michael Roizen, a chief wellness officer at a Cleveland Clinic as well as CNN’s resident aging expert once said “the typical president ages two years for every year they are in office.”
It’s certainly believable when you look at some of the more recent former presidents that have served like presidents Clinton and Bush and the aging process they’ve endured. The stress of being president certainly accelerates this process.
Below are a series of pictures over the life of the presidency of Barack Obama.
President Obama is 47 in the picture, but could pass for a 40 year old.
Still 47, but those grays are becoming a little more pronounced.
Eh, not too much of a difference perhaps but he's starting to look like he could pass for 47.
It almost looks like he's got less grays, is it the lighting?
you begin to see lines and a kind of weariness on the president's face.
Jobs, jobs, jobs.
Although the president's smiling you can see lines and wrinkles manifest themselves.
Rounding into his current form.
not only are the lines solidifying across his face, but the hair appears to be thinning as well.
At this point he's 50 and he certainly looks the part.
He's got the "George Dubya Squint" going on here. Perhaps part of the presidential aging process?
Is the aging process speeding up due to the fact that the 2012 election is coming up?
Speaking before Congress and key members of the federal government.
Dear President Obama, I promise that you will age less grey if you keep us out of Syria.
