Obama Takes Silly Shirt Photo in Bali… After Nixing the Tradition in Hawaii Less Than a Week Ago

On Sunday Barack Obama nixed the “silly shirt” photo tradition with APEX leaders in Hawaii. He thought “this may be a tradition that we might want to break.”

Guess not.

In Bali today Barack Obama joined the East Asia Summit Leaders in the annual silly shirt photo.
They all loved it… Except Obama.
