Many have compared the incoming First Family to Camelot and they are certainly getting the paparazzi treatment early on. The Obama family are in Hawaii taking a Holiday and People magazine has a photo of Barack swinging a golf club with a title, “Barack Obama Snacks on Hawaiian Spam Sushi.” Move over Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston, there is a new A-list celebrity in town.
The good thing for Michelle and Barack and the kids, they have really good security from the US Secret Service. Still, the snappers did get the photos and the pics of Obama are already being compared to a bare chested Vladimir Putin on the popular Drudge Report.
While Obama’s shirtless pecs are getting rave reviews and Michelle Obama looks great in her swimsuit, one can think the family isn’t too happy that photos of the kids on vacation are now being downloaded on computers across the world. So how did this photographer get so close?
A report from the Washington Post notes that the photographer was only 200 yards from the Obama family and was just waling along the beach with a camera and a long lens. The paparazzo is local, according to the paper he lives close to where Obama, 47, and his wife Michelle, 44 are staying in Hawaii.
