Accusing Romney, Deutsch Says Americans Will Lose Trust In Candidate Who Colors Hair
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 10/10/2012 8:36:12 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Don't go there, Donny . . . Donny Deutsch has opened a can of worms—or shall we say, a carton of Clairol.

On Morning Joe today, Deutsch suggested that it looks like Mitt Romney colors his hair, and argued that Americans would lose trust in a candidate who does. But could Deutsch possibly not know of the evidence that his guy Barack Obama has also grabbed the Grecian Formula on occasion?

View the video and photo evidence here.

Somebody should post the pictures of Bill Cinton and his multiple shades of gray hair. And his hair was very black in 1988 and then miraculously going gray in 1992 so he could look older and more mature.

Yeah, everyone lost trust in President Reagan, and his VERY quiet personal barber.

Reagan was a virtual walking billboard for Grecian Formula and that turned out okay.

The Rapist had a different hair color every day, depending upon the particular audience.

This is definitely a blast from the past, but does anybody remember when Clinton's advisers were trying to equate him to Reagan during one of his famous "reinventions"? (I think it was after the Republican takeover but before the 1996 Election) They went as far as dyeing and styling his hair just like Reagan's. Thankfully, this trial balloon only lasted a couple weeks and was put to bed after plenty of teasing by conservative talk radio.

This is the very thing they accused Reagan of doing, coloring his hair! I remember it well.

A couple of years ago, I used Grecian Formula daily. I knew the company I worked for was up for sale and new positions for guys my age were hard to come by especially if they looked like they were aging.

But I still kept getting calls from recruiters and my job didn't seem any less secure because I didn't seem to be aging.

Maybe I was lucky or in a good market or in a good field or something, but I figured out somebody must like my ability or resume whether my hair was graying or not. So I stopped with the charade.

I've still got half a bottle of unused Grecian Formula in my bathroom cabinet from that era. Anybody who wants it can Freepmail me and I'll give it to you for the cost of shipping.

Thank you - I think Clinton had the most dramatic “remediation of grey hair” I have ever seen in a president.

From what I’ve read, Reagan didn’t die his hair (though if he did, I wouldn’t have a problem with it). When he would get hair cuts during the 1980 campaign, the reporters would gather his hair and have it tested. Apparently, the Brylcream he’d used for decades had preserved his hair’s health and color.

Really - someone would lose trust in a person because they color their hair? Does Nancy Pelosi know about this?

Not voting for someone because they color their hair ranks up there in the stupidity category along with voting FOR someone because of the color of their skin.

Unless someone is a dyed in the wool (pun intended) Marxist the only reason anyone could have to vote for Obama revolves around color, but not his hair. It’s either close and personal identification with the melanin in the candidate’s skin or self-inflicted obsessive guilt over events in which Obama’s supposed ancestors were totally uninvolved (except as owners of human chattel themselves).

Thing is Ronald Reagan did NOT color his hair. Think they had his hair tested. Some people just don’t go very gray due to genetics. Some people gray very early, such as early 20s.

Me either. Ronald Reagan could have had snow white hair and I still would have adored him.

My dad never had a gray hair till the day he died at the age of 83. People used to always accuse him of using Grecian formula.

“WTF is a Donny Deutsch”

I think it’s that thing you do right before you flush, as in “I just dropped a Deutsch”.
