'On the president’s 50th birthday, First Lady Michelle Obama says her husband’s ever graying hair is “proof” he’s handled his the job well, and deserves re-election in 2012.
“Every day, I see Barack make choices he knows will affect every American family,” Mrs. Obama said in an email blast to supporters. “That's no small task for anyone -- and more proof that he's earning every last one of those gray hairs.”'
Actually, according to Robert Reich, one of Obama's own advisers and former Labor Secretary under Clinton, those gray hairs are proof that he's now too old to be worth spending any money to save if he starts to suffer from poor health.
In a 2007 speech, he said that if we were in an actually functioning democracy full of educated people, the president should be able to say:
"We are going to have to, if you're very old, we're not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months. It's too expensive. So we're going to let you die."
