Obama Not Up for Tricks on Halloween

Presidential candidate snaps at media

Kids all over Hyde Park were trick or treating Friday. But when they are the children of a presidential candidate, it becomes news. Or at least that is what the media thought.

So, when Barack Obama tried to be like every other parent on Friday, cameras were rolling. And Obama didn't appear to be happy about it.

"That's enough. You've got a shot. Leave us alone," Obama told reporters as he tried to take his 7-year-old daughter Sasha to a neighborhood party.

Obama, who is known for his calm demeanor on the campaign trail, appeared irritated with journalists scrambling to get a shot of him and his daughter. 

"Come on guys, get back on the bus,"  he said to the media who travel with him regularly.

Obama's only costume was a pair of sunglasses. Sasha was dressed as what aides described as a "corpse's bride." 

Obama headed off to a rally Friday night in Highland, Indiana.
