  • I have not noticed change, but I will look closer next time I see him. Could just be the lighting he is in or a huge lack of sleep!

  • he's always looked kind of sickly to me, but being the president is a very stressful job so it wouldnt surprise me in the least :p

  • Yes, he's looking very stressed, but wouldn't you if you had his job and had to deal with all the bs people throw at him. If you look closely at all the presidents you'll notice that their appearance changes drastically during their presidency. Clinton, Bush went gray and became more 'weathered' looking.

  • I couldn't stand paying attention to him so I shut the TV off.

  • Eh. You see what you want to see. He is stressed, no doubt.

  • He looks fine to me just looks older but stress does age you.

  • I don't see it. He keeps getting more gray hair, of course, but that always happens.

    The Onion did make this suggestion on a tweet though. Maybe Boehner's skin color is throwing you off. LOL

  • I never paid attention to how he ever looks... Too busy listening to him and deciphering the truth from the lies... ;o)

  • Maybe it's just wishful thinking on your part. . .
