President Barack Obama

EATS DIRT

in Shirtless Football Game

1/4/2012 6:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Barack Obama shirtless playing beach footballDon't let anyone tell you Barack Obama lacks cojones -- because this weekend in Hawaii, the POTUS himself sacrificed his body to make a diving catch in a hardcore beach football game ... and TMZ has the pics.

The pics were snapped New Year's Day at the Kaneohe Marine Corps Base on Oahu, where the President and the first family stayed for their 10-day vacation.

Obama -- who's pretty ripped for a 50-year-old -- makes some shockingly athletic plays ... diving for catches, tossing up some Hail Marys, and juking people all over the place.

Obama and the fam arrived back in DC early Tuesday morning -- where Mr. President will begin to quarterback his re-election campaign.

A couple of other people mentioned it, but Bush (the son) is far more athletic than Obama. The guy was/is in phenomenal shape, he used to run with his Secret Service bodyguards, he could run something like an 5-minute mile, which is not easy.

Shirtless is a bit inappropriate for any president, but he does deserve a bit of r & r.

You guys are some real losers for making a big deal of him taking time to be with is family during the holidays. Where were you when bush was at Camp David every weekend, having just started two wars and getting us in to the mess Obama now has to fix before putting his agenda forward. True losers on here.

Michelle is one lucky lady? What the hell happened to his luck, then, that he got stuck with Predator's illegitimate daughter for a wife?
I wonder how long it took BO's lackies to download a playbook into the teleprompter....

The republicans are what is holding back this country, not President Obama....God help us all if another republican president is voted into office, especially that idiot Rick Perry. Don't blame Obama when staunchy, greedy, looking out for themselves republicans constantly shoot down offers to better this country.

So bitter.... and jealous perhaps? You repubes would get a lot more respect if you could admit it was the previous administration that got this mess going and admit it isn't an easy fix. all your great (*guffaw*) candidates could even fix a flat tire!!

The Truth Will Set You Free    

@ Mike # 41

Check the records befoe you speak. When Bush was in office all you heard was about how he was on vacation. Yes he did vacation quite often. However, your boy Obama has already surpassed Bush's vacation time for both the first and second term separately. So in other words he still has a year left which will surely surpass Bush's total. If you do not believe this check the White House web page as the source.

The President doesn't deserve to take a little break? Well let's see...he gave the order that resulted in Osama Bin Laden being killed, is ending the war in Iraq, spearheaded the missions that helped bring Ghadafi down, got rid of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell", has fought and so far won in keeping payroll taxes low for middle income and private business and has constructed a massive jobs bill (which unfortuaneatly the Republicans won't pass bc if jobs are created, it will make Obama look good and guarantee his re-election)and the list goes on. He's done more and had more success in this one-term than the last President did in 8 years. Enjoy you're day at the beach Mr. President, you've earned it. Obama 2012!

According to Factcheck.org...
Bush spent 1,020 days of his presidency on vacation. To put this into context, John F. Kennedy spent fewer days in office, 1000, than George W. Bush spent on vacation. Bush spent 487 days at Camp David, 490 days at his Crawford ranch, and 43 days in Kennebunkport. George W. Bush spent 69 days in Crawford during his first year in office. In contrast, according to FactCheck.org, Obama spent all, or part of, 26 days of his first year in office on vacation. This was less than all three previous Republican presidents, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush, but more than the two previous Democratic presidents, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.

Now I know it's hard to believe if it's not coming from FOX, but you are entitled to your own opinion, but not to
your own facts. The fact that you would argue Obama's vacation, to his HOME STATE, just shows how ignorant and desperate you all are...

Wow he is hot! All those who are negatively commenting are probably just old, balding fat white men who are jealous of this handsome, fit, intelligent and powerful black man. Go Obama! 2012 We are in there!! :)
