Aloha! After failing to putt in, Obama tapped the Pretender at the shoulder (as the news goes), buddy buddy that is. After the golf, off the course will be the hula dance, more gyrations compared to the shuffle dance in Beijing, more to loose  (weight) for Flom during the cool weather. 

That reminds me that we spent a few days in Honolulu during Christmas of 1983 during a stop-over to Oregon via Los Angeles. That probably would be our first and last visit. We did not dance the hula.

Captain Cook was killed in Hawaii in 1779.

Hawaii is the northeastern most of the Polynesian islands and people migrations reached there more than 1700 years ago.

US annexed the the whole of Hawaiian islands from their last queen in 1898 (?).
(Queen Lili'uokalani, the last ruler of the Hawaiian Kingdom, overthrown by the United Sates Marine Corps).
