Obama and Family "Cause Commotion" in Hawaii

Obama and Family "Cause Commotion" in Hawaii

Barack Obama took his daughters and some friends out to the mall in Hawaii this past weekend, and according to Reuters, "caused a commotion" with lookers-on and photographers. The president-elect, his trusty BlackBerry, his daughters, Malia, 10, and, Sasha, 7, and friends sat and snacked at a table while a crowd and Secret Service agents assembled around them. It's a scene that comes as no surprise to the 71 percent of CitizenSugar readers who say so long as people want to see the pictures, there will be paparazzi and buzz wherever the Obamas go. Here's more:

The agents struggled to hold back people trying to get closer to snap pictures of Obama eating a tuna and melted cheese sandwich and the girls enjoying shave ices, a local treat made from finely shaved ice and fruit syrup.

In recent interviews, such as his 60 Minutes special, Obama said he is dedicated to maintaining some normalcy for his daughters. At this point we expect to stay dialed in to what the Obamas are up to, but do you think the intense fascination will stay as fervent post the Inauguration?

Em, you are probably right. He is normal. I never said he wasn't normal. I cannot say what I would do in the situation, as I will never be president. But I don't feel bad for him because if he wants to go in a public place, this will happen. And if he wants to try and let his girls have normalcy like still going to a mall, then he is knowingly putting the situation on them. He is obviously not a stupid man. He knows the possible consequences.

I understand that it's difficult to not go up and try to meet them. While at a family reunion in FL, I saw to basketball players that I really admired. It was all I could do to not rush over like a raving fan and ask a million questions. Fortunately, my wife kept me focussed on the task at hand, and I left them to their private conversation.

Awww, Jude, right back at ya ;)I would definitely take Colin over Keanu too (or, well, to be completely honest, I still loves me the Ewan McGregor the most), and wouldn't mind Christian Bale handing me an Effen and tonic, either.Man, now I'm hungry AND I want vodka. Darn it. ;)

Em, you are always lovely and brilliant.I like shiny things too, but I would rather have Colin Firth serve my hot tuna melt than Keanu Reeves any day.

Hypno, in my Matrix, there is always a tuna melt. Served, preferably, by Keanu Reeves.

...and again, maybe there is no motive at all. Like the Matrix. "There...is...no...spoon". Or, in this case, "there...is...no...tuna...melt...and...shaved...ice..."

Moi? Brilliant? Nah, that epithet belongs to Jude (and you, Jill ;)). I just try to come up with something coherent. And I like pretty avatars. And shiny things. But thanks for the sweet words, peeps. :love:No matter where Obama goes, he's gonna attract attention. I don't think he should be forced to go to some underground shaved ice compound/tuna melt hideout with his kids. Maybe he went to that mall because he is normal, not because he is trying to insinuate that he is. Just sayin'.

Maybe the girls choose that mall or maybe they have the best shaved iced. You have no idea why they choose that mall. And with a motorcade and press pool following him where ever he goes how often do you think he will be able to ditch press and supporters? Obama has already won, to insinuate he's parading his children around to impress somebody is absurd.
