(CNN) - Is Obama ditching his signature fist bump?
According to Tuesday's press pool report, the Illinois senator refused to bump fists with a boy as he was touring the Eastside Community Ministry in Zanesville, Ohio.
As the boy outstretched his first, Obama said no and added, "If I start that ..."
His voice then trailed off.
The presumptive Democratic presidential candidate popularized the move last month when he and his wife Michelle bumped fists on the night he formally captured the party's presidential nomination.
Watch: The famous fist bump
Video of the duo fist bumping became widely popular on the internet, leading the Washington Post to declare it “the first bump heard ‘round the world.'”
This is a non-issue. is it a slow news day?
Again, an arrogant snob.,,, dissing a little boy. Yeah that will get you votes Nobama.
Slow "news" day.
Is there something that Barack Obama doesn't flip flop and back off of? The man is a puppet for the media.
The "pound" doesn't fit the new image! This gets more hilarious by the minute! :)

HUSSEIN OBOMBMA IS A JOKE!
What a shame that the anti Obama idiots have to take something so innocent that young folks do, like the fist bump. And try to make it a controversial issue. Want controversy? How about a ruined economy. How about a foolish war with no end? How about five dollar a gallon gas?
Good! Let's just stick to the issues at hand people!!!
Why in this country when a Black man succed they want him to start acting like a White man. That is so stange about that " bump"? Sometimes people don' t have anything to talk about. I guess it is more appropriate in the White America to do "two thumbs up"
This is news? Really? Crazy? I've never heard of such a thing? He did what? Really? Oh my!
Not really any news.
Up there with, Obama yawned.
Obama burped and
What is he, a newborn? Just about.
My girlfriend cited the fist bump as a reason not to trust Obama.
I need a new girlfriend.
R U SERIOUS??? c'mon CNN, gimme a break-how 'bout you TARS start reporting on some real news. Geez
And another one gets thrown under the bus.
dang- I thought it was a first bump in the polls. Fist bump? All this tell me I have been reading too much political stuff and should be enjoying summer instead..
When did you turn into a tabloid? These are truly pathetic stories, CNN. First it's the shirt off some woman's back and now this. I can't count the number of ridiculous, frivolous acts you've reported on regarding Obama. Thank God this man is not as superficial and juvenile as your reporters are. Sure, we love Obama but we are interested in the real, substantial and significant stories, not this fluff. Get back to reporting the news!
How the hell is this news?
...because it's unprofessional. This isn't the hood.
Oh my gad... .please! stop with this crap...this and particularly the flag pin crap meaning your patriotic. You seriously..... seriously have to face the responsibility that your useless information is taken for real. Cover the civilian deaths in Iraq... 600K plus...... your torturing of prisoners and the worlds perspective on that...... things with substance to better the public. You really must feel like entertainment television with no guilt. I mean really... what is Lou Dobbs going to wear a fist on his suit now?
People have been doing this for years not to give each other the flu.But to say no to a kid is just selfish, Obama only cares about himself and no one else and especially not to a kid who wanted to be cool. Even Bush is nicer than that. How low can you go. This blog is all Obama does cnn mean the Cult News Network, Is there any other political news about anything or anyone else.
Fist bumper and proud. Full stop.
I don't think Obama popularized the fist bump. He killed it. When people saw him do it, they realized how lame it was.
