Big Swim

The president takes a 27 hour family vacation in the Florida panhandle to head off controversy regarding his upcoming Martha's Vineyard vacation. He and Sasha almost went for a swim in the gulf.

Despite the millions of gallons of oil that recently flowed around these waters in the past few months, President Obama went for a dip with his daughter while in Panama City Beach yesterday. The actual Gulf was closed to swimming because of riptide, but Obama and Sasha swam in Saint Andrew Bay off Alligator Point, before lunching nearby.
