(CNN) - A network pool camera captured a shirtless Barack Obama enjoying the surf in Hawaii Thursday.
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is vacationing there through the end of the week.
He can go home to Illinois for all I care. He's certainly not kanaka maoli. Hawai'i is no more his home than it is any other tourist's.... he's malihini as far as I'm concerned.
He's not visiting hawaii because he's an elitist, he's visiting his hometown and his family. Unlike mccain, he doesn't have vacation homes and compounds to which to retreat all over the country. it's sad to see Obama's critics grasping at straws to find fault in every thing he does. no matter how innocuous. it just goes to show how superficial and hollow your sentiments towards him are..you've got nothing substantial to "get" him on.
I hope he enjoys his vacation. He deserves it.
Hey – How about getting back to your job and voting yea on drilling for more oil so we, the common people,can afford to take a vacation too.
He's on vacation. Leave him alone. I'm sure if he was President and on vacation, he'd return immediately in the event of a world event such as Georgia/Russia. Enjoy your vacation candidate Obama. McSame is not the President so what makes him think he should be dispatching an envoy to check ou the situation and report back to him.
Enjoy your vacation OBAMA.
leave the guy alone his on vacation!!!!!!!
the STALKARAZZI are in fine tune not giving anybody a break.. People need vacations with their families even Barack Obama. America will get him for the next 8 years let his family have alone time now..
The media captures every Obama move, just like a celebrity. If he really was going to visit his grandma why did he take so many Chicago friends and media with him?
Slow news day, huh?
Look CNN, why don't you guys for once cover the endless mistakes that McCain is making instead of always trying to chase down Obama? Stop with this fluff and do your jobs. Investigate McCain's lobbyists ties to Georgia or his recent gaffe about how "in the 21st century, no nation should invade another nation."
I don't like him, don't want to see him in a suit or his bathing suit.
Go away... stop the no news about Hussein Obama's vacation.
Tell me, how can America vote for a man with a name like Barack Hussein Obama? Really? It's as American as the Muslim nation.
No way, never Obama.
This is a biggest joke. There is no personality for this man. Go away.
Is this a story about prince William?
Wow touchy people! people are interested, you should all be glad so much attention is being paid to Obama. He is going to be under a microscope for the next four to eight YEARS, get a hold of yourselves. Deal with it, he is. He should be able to take it. And so far, he is. Chill out. His every move is being watched and should be watched because we are about to hand the COUNTRY off to this man and his judgement. Its all news. Deal with it.
Can Obama have a peaceful vacation without the press following him and taking pictures. Oh well, I guess we should all be thankful it is Obama without a shirt and not McCain (OMG! I don't want to even imagine what McCain would look like without his shirt)
Um . . . is the media *stalking* Obama now? Leave the man alone and let him enjoy his family vacation in peace! Sheesh.
BARACK, PLEASE ENJOY ALL THE VACATION YOU WANT....JOHN McSAME HAS THE FLOOR ALL TO HIMSELF TO CAMPAIGN AND HE CAN'T GET PAST 43% IN THE POLLS. WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?
THIS IS THE REAL JOHN McSHAME:
McCain's worth over $100 million... He owns 10 houses... He flies around on a $12.6 million corporate jet... He walks around in $520 loafers. If John McCain lost his Social Security, he'd get by just fine. Would you?"
More: "John McCain wants to gamble with our Social Security... John McCain started receiving Social Security when he turned 65. But now he has a risky scheme to privatize Social Security - threatening our benefits."
The Corporate Media = Obama stalkers.
How is ANYONE in Hawaii going to the beach news?
Are you all going to get pictures of John McCain's weekly barbecue and chill weekends?
You can hate Obama or his policies all you want to but it's silly to even pretend he hasn't campaigned as hard as anyone in recent decades. His day job is on hiatus, he can spend time with his wife and kids.
McCain's worth over $100 million... He owns 10 houses... He flies around on a $12.6 million corporate jet... He walks around in $520 ITALIAN loafers. If John McCain lost his Social Security, he'd get by just fine. Would you?" But McSHAME still collects his Social Security check!!!!
Come on CNN, don't turn into a tabloid. This is not news.
Wish I could get past all that I know about Obama. Expecialy his Reverand. So much raisial tention Obama brings. Wish Hillary was on the ticket. She was soooo smart capabel and included everyone.
Seen enough and heard enough about his HOPE.
Ask yourselves – "what has he done for Americans"
"What has he done for Chicago" Have you seen his district?
What has he done PERIOD?????
What do you think he can do?????
Obama cult followers = idiots
While Georgia is overrun, Obama lounges on the beach. Now there's change you can believe in. When that 3 AM call comes, there won't be anyone there to answer.
CNN oh come on is this really CNN journalism, really???
All CNN is doing is keeping up with the Obama's. After all he will . be the next Democratic President of the United States. It has already been spoken.
Obama the Celebrity is at the beach!! Snap the photo! Splash it in the tabloids!
He is a joke, and he's not going to be elected.
