Day 2: President Obama visits Marines in Kaneohe

KAILUA (HawaiiNewsNow) - The President has not talked to reporters about the bombing attempt. But the press pool that follows him around has noticed an apparent increase in security around his Kailua compound.

This morning they saw one secret service boat in the canal outside the property. This afternoon they saw four.

Despite the terror scare, the President and First Lady made time to visit with Marines in Kaneohe this afternoon.

This was Obama's second trip to the base today. He woke up early this morning for a workout at the gym and then went to the mess hall this afternoon to tell the service members how proud he is of them.

We're told the couple spent about a half hour shaking hands and talking with dozens of troops, including one guy in surf shorts.

If you see the Obamas around town on their visit. We'd love to share your picture on air.
