Why Won’t The White House Let Us Ogle Barack Obama’s Man Cleavage Anymore?

This is the official White House photo from Pete Souza, the administration’s photographer, and the only one you’ll see of President Obama shirtless on his Panama City Beach family holiday over the weekend. How come?

Conspiracy theories abound as to why the White House doesn’t want any more pec-tastic photos of the president in circulation, but it’s pretty obvious: They’re tired of all the beefcake magazine covers being snapped up by gays.

That, or like his hair going gray, his presidency is causing his chest to sag.

    what president was photographed shirtless before Obama? what president before him had a body worthy of being photographed shirtless? none to my knowledge. A lot of firsts coming out of this administration…

    There were plenty of Reagan. He looked good for an old guy.

    I don’t find Obama attractive at all!

    Isn’t that cover heavily photoshopped? I remember him looking far less muscular in that picture, and his trunks were black. I don’t find him sexy either, and he doesn’t have to be. But in the months before the election there was a LOT of sexual tension on comment boards on sites like the Washington Post.
