President Obama celebrates 50th birthday


On Thursday, President Obama will turn 50. His planned birthday party in his hometown of Chicago on Wednesday was threatened earlier with a possible debt crisis default. With fellow Chicagoans such as Herbie Hancock and Jennifer Hudson attending, Obama admitted to NPR that “What I really want right now is to, to get a debt-ceiling deal for my birthday.” Regarding getting older, he says, “I feel real good about 5-0. I’ve gotten a little grayer since I took this job, but otherwise, I feel pretty good.”

He says his wife, Michelle does not like the gray hair. “Malia and Sasha say it makes me look distinguished. Michelle says it makes me look old.” He adds that Michelle still thinks “I’m cute…And I guess that’s, that’s all that matters, isn’t?”
