Obama to ring in 2011 with family talent show

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 04:23 p.m. HST, Dec 31, 2010

President Barack Obama will ring in 2011 with friendly competition at his family's annual New Year's Eve talent show.

The White House is keeping Obama's talent a closely guarded secret. Several friends and family members will join the Obamas at their rented oceanfront home in Kailua.

Obama has stayed under the radar for much of his Hawaii vacation, mostly spending his time at the gym, golf course or beach. The White House says he has been reading three books: Lou Cannon's biography of Ronald Reagan, "President Reagan: The Role of a Lifetime"; and two novels, "The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet", by David Mitchell, and "Our Kind of Traitor", by John le Carre.

He played golf again in the afternoon at the Kaneohe Klipper course at the Marine Corps Base Hawaii with friends Bobby Titcomb, Mike Ramos, Eric Whitaker and Marty Nesbitt.

A handful of well-wishers held signs as the president's motorcade drove to his morning workout at the Marine Corps Base Hawaii gym. One of the signs read, "Mahalo President Barack." Another said, "So much gratitude & love for you."

It is an honor to have the President here enjoying the greatest place on earth. Have you noticed that our hotel occupancy just keeps getting stronger every year that he vacations here? Could it be that these pictures of him playing golf and relaxing are encouraging others to do the same? Or could it be because the economy is getting more robust every year? Oh wait, he's responsible for that too! Either way, he's a positive force for Hawaii and the nation.
