Okay, as you know, I like to deal with the burning issues of the day here – no, no: not the economy or Egypt, hair dye.

Right, these are the photos from January 19 that were taken as proof – PROOF!! – that the President dyes his hair. The one on the left is the President attending a meeting with President Hu of China in the morning; the one on the right is the President (under lights) at that night’s state dinner.

Um, also from that evening:

Okay, that’s that investigation complete. Woodward and Bernstein eat yer hearts out.

    He is so cute, President Obama. Grey hair or not he is still cute.

    Second photo should be sent to Matt Lauer……first of all- seems someone was picking and choosing photographs to support their premise, second, and maybe equally important…why go there –desperate???????

      That’s exactly it, Sue – so bloody what if he dyed his hair?! Oh, right, I get it, more proof that this ‘exotic’ man is vain and narcissistic??

      The funny thing is, when I was picking out photos from the state dinner to post here that night it struck me just how gray his hair had become …. and then I saw the media twats picking out the ONE photo, out of dozens, that was taken under lights and made his hair look dyed.

      Seriously, is THAT the best these creeps can throw at the President?!?! They are beyond puke-inducing.

        I’ve said since the campaign. If the lame crap they continue bending over backwards trying to pull…is the best/worst they can come up with to throw at him. He’s alright with me!!!!

        They’re too funny and they try so hard…too! LOL!

      You are right…Someone should send that photo to Lauer. Fact check much? I watch the Today show. But sometimes the reporting is ridiculous. It’s a mixture of real news and tabloid journalism. 😦 Usually it’s easy to tell the difference. You would think they would do their homework before interviewing people.

      Oops! Don’t forget to let the Matt L. guy know that he forgot to mention that the president had some cosmetic surgery done (?facelift) between the two side-by-side photos! He looks younger in one, and there are wrinkles around the eye and the neck in the other! 😉

    It’s so pathetic and obviously desperate on the part of Rethuglicans to try to denegrate this president with this absurd made-up crap. It’s also obvious that this MADE-UP CRAP is all they’ve got! In other words, they’ve got NOTHING. They can’t complain about his work, because he’s doing a fantastic job in the face of impossible situations. They can’t complain about his handling of the economy because it’e obviously improving. They can’t complain about his dedication to his wife and his children, because he’s obviously in love with his family. They can’t complain about how the rest of the world views him because the rest of the world loves him more than 40% of Americans. So, what can they do to denegrate him? What they always do about everything: LIE.

    It’s really so pathetic. I feel sorry for them. They’re missing out on appreciating and witnessing one of the truly great American presidents this country has ever seen.

    didn’t Reagan dye his hair? or are they trying to say that his hair was jet black at his age.

    I hate to go cultural here, but when you see the gray in President Obama’s hair, that means that he hasn’t been to the barber lately. once the ‘ do’ is cut and done ‘ tight’, the black is back. no chemicals needed..LOL

      Right, rikyrah,

      Those who are cooking up this new attack have no experience or knowledge of black hair care. I noticed that the president needed a haircut in the Prayer Breakfast photos. I guess he’s been too busy to get it done. It is true that there is a discernible difference in most black mens’ hair in its cut and uncut state. I know because I saw it with my dad and 5 brothers when I was growing up.

    Don’t get me started. I was fuming during the Matt Lauer inerview. How did you guys like Matt’s “gotcha” question about the First Lady menu for the super bowl party. Could you believe it? So because the First Lady did not serve a Let’s Move school lunch to her guests at the super bowl party …. she is a hypocrite. Unbelievable. Matt Lauer is a joke. The First Lady made him look small and petty. Most of his questions sucked. But she handled them with grace and class.

      The Obamas continue to make these nitpickers look small and petty. The Obamas are simply…..COOL!

      I thought Lauer was a punk. I am going to write his network, the hair dye BS demostrates perfectly why they don’t deserve to be taken seriously, and actually are cause for legitimate concern.
      I wonder if Matt Lauer would question Sarah Palin about what appears often to be dead animals incorporated into her hair arrangements, or if her kids Facebook etiquette is laudable, or if she has kicked her addiction to Redbull and Botox? No…didn’t think so!

    Lauer probably got the “tip” from Drudge b/c Drudge links to that tabloid, The Daily Mail frequently. He had linked to Daily Mail & they had pictures from earlier that day of the State Dinner & accused Pres. Obama of dying his hair for the Dinner…..idiots! Walter Cronkite must be rolling in his grave constantly with these clowns we have now acting like news reporters.

    Off topic again, but Mrs. Obama wore that dress splendidly. Whoever said a waif would have worn it better…..Nah! She looked regal and haters know it.
