These photos first came out several hours ago (I first saw them on TMZmore than 14 hours ago) and the public just can't seem to get enough of it. The web is currently clogged with searches for "Barack Obama shirtless", "Obama shirtless in Hawaii", "Obama Hawaii vacation shirtless", and other similar
configurations. You'd think people were going crazy over the latest Hollywood hunk to go topless! He he.
The Obamas are in Hawaii for the holidays, escaping the freezing temperatures of the mainland for some R and R before the inauguration in less than a months time. They need all the rest and privacy right now because once the President-elect officially becomes President of the United States and leader of the free world, vacations like this will be hard to come by. But despite their much-needed privacy, the paparazzis still had their way with the incoming first family. See some of the shots taken by these paps below, as well as video of Brarack Obama swimming in the Pacific. (Source: Bauer Griffin Online)
