Uh, was he the POTUS or POTUS-elect when the picture was taken? End of story.

Like he's the first president we've seen shirtless? I seem to remember a few Bush pics, and I think we've all seen Clinton in his shirtless glory. Who cares? Obama is a hottie, so I'm all for topless pictures of him...

BTW, this brings up another example of Obama having basic good sense. Obama in long swim trunks is fine. Obama in a speedo would be bad judgement indeed!

Does this mean after January 20th, all beach attire must include shoes and a shirt? Kinda makes it difficult to go body surfing....

However, he is partaking in an activity that tens of million of Americans partake in every year.


I agree, What do people expect? Should he remain dressed while he's showering also? Everyone has swimming attire & even if they had decided to swim in the nude on that private beach it should be up to them just as if you were to swim naked on your private beach if you had one. These people are no different than you or I. Let them live... who cares what they do in their private lives unless it DIRECTLY affects the USA, and I don't believe seeing anyone in their swimming suits or even nude could harm the USA. Some people will make mountains out of a single grain of dirt. That's one of the problems with America. Although we may not want to see it, they should still be able to do it. All you bashers need to find something worth while & necessary to talk about... In the meantime-- MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!!!

What is the point of this? Men go to the beach without their shirts on. Do we need swimsuits from Teddy Roosevelt's closet?

Several choices I could have picked were left out:

Who cares?

Why is this significant?

What difference does it make?

It's not like he was bottomless.

Who gives a fig leaf?
