Tingles certainly didn’t want to close out his year with this kind of a letdown:

The White House is taking extra steps to prevent photos of a shirtless President Obama on vacation in Hawaii.

The president and his family are on a snorkeling trip in Hamauma Bay Nature Reserve, and traveling press are under “explicit instructions that there will be no long lenses or other sneaky attempts to take pictures,” according to a pool report.

Don’t get too down, Chris — you’ve still got your dog-eared 2008 copy of The Washingtonian to keep you company.

    What, is the White House afraid that we're going to see the holes in his back where George Soros puts his fingers?

    LOL – ain't that the truth! But I agree with Doug – poor Tingles won't have anything to look at to satisfy his "woody".

    The photos from the perfectly tasteless '08 romp were no accident. The entire photo-op was carefully orchestrated.

    Contrary to popular belief, they weren't for Chris Matthews' benefit ( although it's rumored he excused himself from the set and made a beeline for the men's room, returning w/ a grin and several pages missing )

    No, this had everything to do with the "I will be 'all' your President!" comment. It was for conservatives 'benefit'. The not-so-subliminal msg. being, "I'm large & in charge so don't even 'think' about getting out of line". Your basic high school locker room male intimidation type stuff. Chris role was to make sure libs were echoing that msg.

    Oh, and btw, I'm almost certain it is "Hanauma" not Hamauma, Bay.
