OK, we've all seen it--the Obamas went to Hawaii for his mom's memorial and a little R&R and in no time at all someone got pictures of the Obamas at the beach. Which makes me wonder.... whaddaya think of seeing a shirtless prez-to-be?

i think for the bitter elephant rageaholic party this will be a major issue for some time. as mr obama attempts to dismantle the war machine esp blackwater, the accusations of shirtless beach attire will reach a high pitched scream.

I agree - "It's not dignified, it dishonors The Office!" (no, not that Office.) They're comfortable with the idea of Richard Nixon dogpaddling around in his suit and Florsheims.

Firstly, that picture was taken by the papparazzi while Obama was on a private beach. Is he supposed to remain in a suit and tie at the beach because he is our president-elect? Absolutely not. Bush would go around his ranch in a cowboy hat. Many would argue that that look is "un"presidential. If Obama went running around the streets naked, you might have a point. However, he is partaking in an activity that tens of million of Americans partake in every year.

Do whut?

The Messiah and his family are going to be so transparent in the day, months, and years to come, it's really amusing. I must admit, though, his body IS a fine specimen.

LOL, of course Obama's not the first shirtless Prez. Here's the Reagans at the beach:

Maybe the GOP war cry will be "Well, Obama may think he's buff, but he's no Reagan!"
