Bare-chested Obama ‘looks more like George Clooney than George Bush’

Bare-chested Obama ‘looks more like George Clooney than George Bush’Melbourne, Dec 23 : U. S. president-elect Barack Obama has been likened to George Clooney after photographs of him leaving a gym in Hawaii without his shirt surfaced on the Internet.

On the net, people are raving about the next US President's body.

Celebrity website Celebuzz claimed Obama was "the hottest president ever" while the Sun said "His buff chest and toned tum belie his 47 years and show he's got more in common with George Clooney than George Bush."

The Washington Post called the shots "peck-tacular".

The pics, which show Obama looking casual, wearing black gym shorts and sunglasses have also raised concerns about his security.

Frank Griffin, co-owner of Bauer-Griffin, the California-based paparazzi agency that snapped the shots, told the Washington Post that the secret service "didn''t seem to mind."

"The guy just walked along there. He had a camera in his hand. He wasn''t hiding behind the bushes. He wasn''t hiding behind the trees, he wasn''t on a boat and he wasn''t doing anything that we are used to doing. He took some pictures. Everybody saw him. And then he walked off, it was as simple as that," News. com. au quoted Griffin, as saying. (ANI)
