POLL: What Do You Think Of The Obama Flip Flop Scandal?

People across the nation have been in a tizzy over this photo of President Obama buying ice cream for his daughters in Hawaii.  In case you haven’t seen it, check it out below:


Breaking News: Our president is just like us.  He wears flip flops to the beach.

According to historians, this is the first time in history that a president has shown his toes in public.  And personally, I don’t see the problem with that.  Perhaps it isn’t the most professional fashion choice, but it’s not like he’s walking into the Oval Office in board shorts.

Do you disagree?


Do you think President Obama should have worn close-toed shoes on vacation?  Or do you think people are making too big a deal out of it?  What do you think of men who wear flip flops in general?  Hot or not?  Let’s chat footwear in the comments!

    I think its crazy That people are stirring stuff up. He’s in Hawaii! Let him be… anyways as far as flip flops on men in general.. it depends on their feet “rather” its hot or not :)

    I have no idea how we can qualify this as “news.”

    I agree completely with Jen I. and Sara. Not only is Pres Obama IN Hawaii, he is FROM Hawaii. Perfectly normal and appropriate dress for an island vacation! He would look ridiculous in “business attire”. Too bad he can’t have more peace and quiet!

    Since I live in Santa Cruz County, flip flops are ubiquitous. I think they are uncomfortable; but don’t care how they look, on men or women. So many more important things to be concerned about!

    He has every right to be comfortable like any of us.
