Hawaii Officials Drop Plan to Name Park for Obama

(HONOLULU NEWS - MFNS) - Two Honolulu city councilmen have dropped plans to rename a popular beach for President Barack Obama. The beach is a popular for bodysurfing on Oahu's east side. It was a favorite for the president as he grew up. He bodysurfed there while on vacation during his 2008 campaign.

The councilmen last week introduced a resolution to change the name of Sandy Beach Park to President Barack Obama’s Sandy Vagina Park.
