Obama takes plunge, swims in Gulf


www.cnn.com

No reporters or press cameras were present for the swim, but the image will nonetheless send a message that the White House has sought to convey with the first family's trip: the Gulf Coast is open for business.

I doubt he was even there. The article itself makes it seem like he wasn't even there and that the photo is staged.



"I think we're going to go tomorrow and as I just said Ed, I'm not going to let you guys take a picture of me with my shirt off," Obama jokingly told CNN Saturday. "You guys will tease me just like last time. I was on the front page ... People commenting."
But just hours later, a photo was published on the White House Flickr page showing a smiling President Obama and his daughter Sasha taking a dip in the Gulf waters off Alligator Point in Panama City Beach, Florida.


And if he was, that's pretty funny - wasn't there a topic on ATS saying Obama should swim in the gulf to show it is safe?

I think this is propagander. We all know that living creatures have been dying in the gulf due to contamination of the oil and corexit. I think the president isnt that stupid to put himself at risk. This is about making money and screw the health and safety and totally wrong. YOU get lots of swimmers in there and I bet you within a few weeks the hospitals are going to be overwhelmed.

hmmm... thats a tough call.... no reporters or press present... I think I call BS...

plus, look what was said about the Beach Obama visited




"It's got lily-white sand, and frankly the oil didn't really make it there. It was pretty well spared," said Leatherman, who noted that the water is 87 or 88 degrees because of the steamy Florida weather, making it conducive to at least a quick presidential plunge.


Hense only that beach appears to be open for business, since the oil never reached those waters

The above quote pretty much sums this up!

Then that will mean Joe Biden has a chance to succeed President Obama.
At least it is not Hilliary Clinton. I like Bill Clinton but not his wife.

Obama takes plunge, swims in Gulf

Big deal!
Are we now supposed to be thrilled?
Anyway, according to his followers, he's the messiah, so he probably just walked on the water, and didn't even get wet.

Be funny if a shark bit him right on his gluteus maximus.

Or numerous of piranhas can swim up and eat him.
It would be a fishy death. You know the old saying.

But ... but he is Anti-Christ born in Kenya..probably he took the photoshoot in the Fema camps swimming pool after destroying the US constitution before praying his namaz (Muslim prayer).

Dam!! someone ask Fox news to corroborate this story and make sure this is legitimate.

And I think the children were actually blown up cartoon characters!
He didn't really swim and doesn't really care.
Let's hop on hyperbole when we see it coming our way.
It can't be, he is trying to encourage tourism to the Gulf!!!!!!!!!


BS BS BS


Give me a break, huh?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

for someone who wants to investigate this further....

the picture of Barry...(correction)...Barack & daughter in the water
seems to indicate the sun was directly overhead @ 12 O'clock...

now correlate the presidents inteniary of his 27 hour stay-over
in Panama City with the position of the sun...this should indicate
IF his 'swim' was a reality or just a staged scene or even a photoshopped contrivence.

this 'swim' scene could very well have been from his stays in Hawaii, or even Martha's vineyard...and not at the beach in Panama City as we are being told.

He probably wasn't even there. It was probably a photoshop, or better yet a robot.

In fact, I don't even think that Obama exists. Our current president is just a figment of our imagination thanks to Blu-ray DVDs and cell phones infiltrating our thought waves.

On top of that, the oil spill never even happened. It is just an imaginary ploy to guide the country in some political direction that we don't and can't know about yet because we are all binary code in a computer simulation that exists in an alternate universe with a duration of merely 0.001 nanoseconds.

to tell ya the truth it may be possible
that this is true.

The article stated he swam at Alligator Point
Panama City FL.

If u'll use google maps you'll see Alligator point
is in a lagoon behind a barrier chain from the gulf
waters meaning he's protected. The calm waters
with no visual waves confirms the lagoon status.
So it could be real, just not really swimming
directly in the gulf ... but behind barrier islands.
Basically, it's like an intracoastal waterway which
feeds fresh water into the ocean. Yet at this point
the fresh water is partially mixed with the salt water.

Like I said he was protected if he was at the point
they say he was at. However, all those people now
heading to the REAL beaches of FL are gonna swim
in very different toxic waters.

This was propaganda intended to get tourists back
to the gulf coast and so far it seems to be working.

So, what exactly are you saying, that there are thousands of areas along the coast of Florida that are safe to swim for tourists and citizens without having to worry about comtamination?!?!

HOW DARE YOU! They have all obviously been contaminated by the huge oil spill, and nobody should swim ANYWHERE along the coast.

uggh some of you people..
OK he was there... It was not a dangerous area, but it was technically on the gulf. Do you think FOX or Drudge would let him get away with actually not being there. People please, he may have picked a "Special Gulf Spot" but he was there and he swam. It is all BS politics, none of them care about you and they are all on the same side. They have you divided and you fool enough to think your just different.

Any Who!!.
