    Obama and Putin are both sexy enough to be photographed that way, so why are people upset about the magazine cover?  I thought it was great wink.

      Because some people have such small and insignificant lives, they get offended by absolutely everything, even a kid swimming without its trunks on at the beach..... These people I think are the true closet perverts of Society. So let them come out (xcuse the pun) and be shocked and then  we will then know exactly who they are. Lol

        I agree with you, so people are just strange that way. I do have to say some people may fire back that if he has the time to be shirtless he should be working on other important things

      It didn't offend me, we all have bodies and I surely don't want to picture George W that way....now THAT would be offensive.  LOL

      It's not Presidential, like some Presidents had their own bedroom...cuz we just can't picture them "together" with their own wife.   GEEEEZE.  Obama is human, they all are, we are, it's a common link, but thank god you all don't have to see me on the cover of anything.  smile) you are grateful, I know.

      Ewww.  Putin is SCARY.  But I wasn't 'offended.'

      Obama is attractive, but maybe needs to work out a little more, wink.  But nope, not by a long shot offended...

    I think they have the right to get photographed that way or anyway they wanted and that should not be anyone's Business. I think who ever has criticisms should first worry about themselves first.

      Eggsactlys there are so many stupid people in the World that make mountains, out of molehills, and drama on about things such as this..... I personally don't think I would like to see huge chunky people posing simiarly, but all our models and filmstars do, so what!!!!!  I am not incidentally against the big chunkies, before they lash out at moi, I am more just into, not liking seeing people make jerks of themselves, but that said if they want to fine by me also.

    I swear I saw a picture of Reagan once in swim shorts. I remember lots of talk about men boobs around that time.

    People wear swimsuits when they're on vacation.  Seems like a no-brainer.  Were you all offended by the picture of me in my bathing suit on a Caribbean beach last January?  C'mon now.

    Maybe the media's just sore because they didn't catch him skinny-dipping.

    Who cares what he wears,
    not I cried the fly.
    His dress sense bores me to tears.

      I think his image could best be described as contrived. The whole image is sort of spindoctorish???????? (Does such a word exist) surely not.

    The whole celebrity culture we live in is obsessed over things like this, it sells papers/magazines so they run this kind of stuff knowing the masses will eat it up.

    So what if the guy took his shirt off, it was at the beach or when he was on holiday wasn't it?

    If anything it prooves he's human like the rest of us, a trait which I wish more politicians would show.

    Are hubbers watching me.  I just snipped Obama's swimsuit photo from the May, 2009 issue of Fitness magazine.  Ninety minutes of daily exercise pays off.

    Why are people getting mad at them for being shirtless? hmm its the magazine showing the pic tongue what's that say about what they (the magazine) are doing? yeah, some people really do need to refocus their wasted energy or life tongue lol

    I suppose there are those that think because he is the President, he should set an example.
    My opinion?  He is, he's showing us he's human for God's sake.  I don't care that he smokes, that he goes shirtless or drinks a beer.  As long as he doesn't abuse animals and children and gets our country back on the right path, I'm all for him.  And yes, I think he is a fine looking man smile
