Bag’s Take-Away:

People will flinch from the comparison for a million reasons. Still, swap candid for composed, Main Street for Camelot, and name-the-city “local legend” fast food joint for haute cuisine and, optically at least, you’ve got Obama looking — at least now, in full campaign mode — like 2012’s JFK.  

The fact is, Obama is knocking the stuffing out of Romney visually. These days, in the camera’s eye, he’s, yeah: special, original, favorite, hot, fast and great. As much for the content as the fact it largely slipped everyone else’s attention, it’s my favorite pic of the campaign so far.

Re: TMZ’s hidden camera shots of Obama football game on Hawaii beach: 

1. 121 photo slide show (sandwiched with all those ads)? That’s some impressive click whoring. 2. Obama sans shirt not looking bad as compared to famous ‘08 surf shot. 3. Of course, the money pic, if you’re talking then-and-now, is #43, the near-face plant.
