So what? I didn't vote for the guy but he looks like he's in good shape.
The one big thing I would like to point out is that if the photographer was this close (even with a very big lens) it means he was within rifle range! Doesn't matter if it was a private beach of not... the guy got way to close!Can you imagine if some nut job was able to take BHO out??!?!?! We would all be in a butt load of trouble!! I wouldn't wish that on any president... Rep or Dem. The Feds need to beef up security...

I don't know - I'm partial to this old Mathew Brady pic of #16. . .

I have to agree with the safety concerns.

I also have to point out that this entire subject, being UPSET about him being in a bathing suit is proof that some people are so partisan blind they will find fault with anything and everything.

Frankly I think it shows to the world that he is a strong, healthy man and it should give the US confidence he can do the job that must be a heavy burden. I have always thought we needed a younger set in DC, people who aren't likely to DIE while in office and people who aren't on probation or who have been released early from probation shouldn't be there either.

I'm going to save the pic and compare it to one in 4 years. Unfortunantly the office will wear him down.... It ages them all.

Thanks to state-of-the art computer imaging, we may already know what our President-elect will look like after his term.

I was actually thinking the same thing. It's probably staged, but so what, much better than those staged Heidi-Spencer photos...yuk!
