I have decided that the Obama has some potential, but crap like this is hardly Presidential. You are 47 years old and about to assume the most important job in the world. 29 is the cut-off for wearing your hat backwards, and while it's fun to flip the shaka, act like a big boy Barack. Keep your shirt on and quit trying to be the coolest kid in your geeky frat.
Reuters thinks it's Uber-Cool. Grow up Reuters and stop the ball-washing.
