Today is US President Barack Obama's birthday. He turns 49 on August 4th 2010.
Barack Obama is one of the youngest US Presidents in recent history. However, as his birthday is celebrated, the tolls of the presidency are evident as Obama sports more and more gray hair with each passing year.
Obama can only hope for a better 50th year than his 49th which included the Gulf Oil Spill disaster and a major slowdown to the economic recovery. Unfortunately, the chances of unemployment hitting 10% nationwide by his 50th birthday are very high.
