of june, 2011. the white house will neither confirm nor deny a statement by afghanistan's president karzai that the united states has begun peace talks with the taliban. but rebel assaults continue. yesterday men wearing camouflage fatigues stormed a police station near the presidential palace killing nine people. the syrian government has launched a wide-scale crackdown against dissidents in towns along the turkish border. tanks and buses full of soldiers have been seen streaming into the area. dozens of people have been detained. some say the soldiers have been burning homes and businesses. a five-hour computer outage on friday night and early yesterday forced united airlines to cancel dozens of its flights this weekend. the carrier says things are slowly getting back to normal, whatever that is these days. congresswoman gabrielle giffords is spending the father's day weekend at home in tucson, the first time she's been back in tucson since being gravely wounded in
6:05 am
a shooting rampage there in january. non-partisan good times are not par for the course in washington these days, which is why yesterday's golfing foursome was such a headline event. our bill plante tagged along. >> reporter: a lovely late spring morning, and president obama, house speaker boehner, vice president biden, and ohio governor kasich were on the first green at joint base andrews near washington d.c. this was the first time the speaker, 8 handicapped ranked 43rd among washington's top golfers by golf digest, played with the president, 17 handicap, ranked 108th. call it the first annual white house invitational. there was plenty for the president and the speaker to talk about. mr. obama's decision, contrary to advice from lawyers at the pentagon and justice department, not to seek congressional approval for u.s. military action in libya. and the negotiations now
6:06 am
underway to cut spending in order to get republicans to vote to raise the nation's debt limit before the u.s. goes into default. but predictably, no one would say if any of those things were discussed. presidents have long used the golf course to do business. since william howard taft in 1909, 15 of the last 18 presidents have been golfers. historian of the u.s. golf association says there's a good reason. >> they look at it as a way to escape the pressures of the office, get out and have some freedom. woodward wilson said that the white house was a jail. no surprise that wilson played over 1500 rounds during his term. >> reporter: after game the foursome did look relaxed, enjoying a cold drink at the clubhouse. the white house won't say what kind. they did tell us that the president and the speaker beat the vice president and the governor on the 18th hole. and that they won $2 each.
6:07 am

6:12 am
a mean machine and, for some, a time machine. most corvette buyers are men in their middle age, getting the notion that they're somehow seeking their lost youth, what some call a mid life crisis. >> you hear the term i have to have one before i die. >> reporter: at this chevrolet in california the sales manager says the guys who buy corvettes know exactly what they're getting. are they buying performance or the fantasy? >> the fantasy. >> reporter: a fantasy to ward off a special evil. the term mid life crisis was coined in 1965 by the late canadian psycho analyst elliott jacques and it started with fear. >> they were afraid of aging. they felt their life was over. >> reporter: margie lockman is a psychologist at brandeis university in massachusetts and a lead researcher in an ongoing study on mid life, the most in-depth ever in the
6:13 am
united states. >> they realize they had not accomplished all their goals and had not been able to realize their dreams. they thought it was too late. there was really no more time to do this. >> i'm here today to again apologize.... >> reporter: the concept is so widely accepted, it's often blamed for men behaving badly, from weiner to schwarzenegger to clinton. >> actually my wife and i are separated. >> what i mean is separated in the sense that she went away for the summer. >> reporter: from the seven-year itch to moonstruck, it's one of hollywood's go-to themes. >> why do men chase women? >> nerves. >> i think it's because they fear death. >> reporter: but as it turns out, our assumptions are wrong. surprisingly margie lockman's research shows that very few men perhaps only 10 to 12% have anything approaching a crisis.
6:14 am
your numbers would suggest that the vast majority of people take this in stride. >> i would say they do. >> reporter: 85, 90%. >> yep. we find a lot of things going on in mid life that are very positive. really the top of their game in the sense in the work force, in their family. so in some ways i think mid life should be associated more with confidence. confidence than a crisis. >> reporter: those facts aside, it's the men who are suffering who are driving the discussion. their fear is real. and that is driving a booming business promising to reverse mid life aging. >> how does this 70-year-old doctor have the body of a 30-year-old? >> people look at me and they say, you look amazing from the neck down. and i tell them that no one is more amazed than i am. >> reporter: dr. jeffrey life runs a clinic in las vegas. he thinks he has the answer.
6:15 am
test test. >> this is what the patient would get, this vile of test test. and then you draw that out into a syringe and inject it into the muscle of your leg. once a week. >> reporter: once a week. most men's testosterone level peaks in their late 20s and declines steadily, about 1% a year after age 30. the doctor says to stop the decline, then you regain your youth. >> well, i mean, i do think today at age 72 that i would never have even considered doing ten years ago. i'm working on my black belt in tae kwan do. i workout five mornings a week with rob my trainer. i wrote a book. these are things that i could not have done 10 or 16 years ago. >> reporter: his body is his proof. what he was like in his 50s and where he is today after eight years taking testosterone. however we define mid life there's throw out 50ish, how many men at that age do you
6:16 am
think need the kind of therapy that you offer? >> including correcting testosterone deficiencies, exercise, nutrition supplementation, 100%. >> reporter: everybody. and this doctor isn't alone. testosterone has gone mainstream. jumping from ads in the back of men's magazines to slick commercials on network television. >> it could be an easily treatable condition called low- t. >> reporter: the result: sales of testosterone products have shot up as if they're on steroids from $550 million in 2006 to $1.3 billion in 2010. the tv ad says your golf swing will get better. your sex life will get better. what do you say? >> testosterone a few years ago it was melatonin and then dhea. back in the 800 it was ground-up
6:17 am
goat testicles. it goes back hundreds years with the whole notion of the found feign of youth. >> reporter: this doctor is an expert on aging at the boston medical center. he sees not the benefits of testosterone but a laundry list of dangerous side effects. >> there was a very high profile in the new england journal of medicine article that found a very high rate, four times greater rate, for cardiovascular events and ate real fibrillation, heart attack. >> reporter: his prescription to reverse a mid-life slowdown, do it the old-fashioned way. >> go to the gym and just work on the weight. look at all the people out there on the weights. i would wager that the vast majority of them are not taking any drugs. they're feeling great. i know so many people who don't call it a mid life crisis. they call it an opportunity. >> i have to keep moving or i catch up with myself. if that makes any sense. and i caught up with myself at that point.
6:18 am
and i didn't like me. >> come on. we're normal. comparatively normal. >> reporter: opportunity is exactly what comedian ray romano was looking for at age 47 when he found himself suddenly adrift. >> you know, raymond was nine years. before that i was stand-up for 11 years. it was 20 years of this creative outlet that i had. all of a sudden there was nothing. and i found myself wondering what the hell am i going to do with the rest of my life? what have i done. >> reporter: so he along with his friend and producer mike decided to explore their own changing lives on television. >> right here. right here. it's not blurry anymore. now it's too far away that i can't read it. i'm never going to know what it says on a ketchup bottle. >> it's ketchup. >> reporter: they call their current show "man of a certain
6:19 am
age." yes, that means middle age. >> you're a 49-year-old man. how many 16-year-old friends have you got? >> she's not 16. >> she's closer to 16 than 49. i'll tell you that. >> age is just a number, my friend. just a number. >> it's really a very exciting time in a way. i kind of liken it to like your second teenagerhood. your brain is processing a lot of information. >> reporter: they say the show has helped all of them gain a new perspective. >> when i went to get my check- up at age 55, my doctor said, well, you're just... welcome to the second half of your life. wow. you know, that is kind of maybe a real solid reality. i'm thinking that's a lot of time. >> reporter: he is on to something say researchers who suggest contentment not crisis is the true reality of mid life for most men. >> it takes a while before you
6:20 am
accept that you're not going to be able to do anymore. you're not as young as this. women aren't going to be as attracted to you anymore. you know, that's just the way life is. there is, you know, contentment to be had at that age. you've just got to take adjustments. >> reporter: and what's ahead did look pretty good, says psychologist margie lockman. >> you don't have to assume that you are stuck and that it's just all downhill from here. in many ways we can say that those who are in the middle really they're in the driver's seat. i don't necessarily mean in a sports car. >> reporter: just remember whatever you do, it always helps to sprinkle in a little bit of humor. >> mid life doesn't own the crisis. i was having a crisis in my 20s. it's only a mid-life crisis because it's mid life. i had a 20s crisis, a 30s crisis.
