Remember those staged photos of Bill and Hillary Clinton dancing on the beach once upon a time? You have to wonder. The Obama 'pec' photos were taken on a public beach. Some accounts said the photographer had approval to take those shots. All of a sudden, the bad buzz about links between Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Barack Obama was gone for a while, replaced by good buzz about presidential pecs," noted Tim Graham of the Media Research Center.
"There's some bathing-suit bias, too. When beauty queen photos of [Alaska Republican Gov.] Sarah Palin surfaced during the presidential campaign, the press coverage was negative. And you can be sure if positive images of President Bush in a bathing suit had appeared sometime in 2000, the press would have cast suspicions on them as a staged photo-op," Mr. Graham said.
Mr. Obama's public pin-up shot is not his first. A photo of him emerging from the surf - a little chunkier but still agreeable - made global headlines shortly before he announced his White House run in 2007. Such accidentally-on-purpose moments could be the hallmark of a very deft public official.

Staged AND Photoshopped.
It does take the focus off of Blago report, released today, as did the Granny Dunham memorial.
His election will be recorded as one of the greatest cons in history... The media and certain ethnic groups were more than willing accomplices....
The Germans elected their messiah to save them, and he destroyed them... I fear we've done the same.
Any photographer that could get that shot could’ve been an assasin with a different shot in mind. Idiots. No President Elect should have lousy security like that.
Sort of like that accidental pic of Bill and Hill sharing a loving and tender moment on the beach that they were “horrified” was published.
Obama’s pecs got a little bigger and more defined from the flabby photo. Hey, maybe he is jut working out real hard. Good for him.
Obama seems to be mollifying his GLBT “base” after their outrage at Rick Warren’s invitation to speak at the inauguration - by posing topless for them.
Shirtless “O” got rid of “Blag-oh.”
there is no way thats his body!
Geee ya think?
“Wag the f@g”?... A diversion from Blago!
You’re right. And the media (most of which are in the target audience) are played like violins.
Which is also, so gay.
It worked for Putin, why not The 0ne?
Obama...a fake...NO WAY. And here I thought he was an upstanding citizen LOL
Goebbles would be proud
