Appears that Barack Obama Did not Go Swimming in the Gulf of Mexico as MSM Reported


Imagine that, the MSM misreported the news when it comes to Barack Hussein Obama. When is swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, not swimming in the Gulf of Mexico … when it comes to reporting on the media’s Chosen One, Barack Hussein Obama. UNREAL!

It was reported yesterday by the MSM that President Barack Hussein Obama went swimming in the Gulf of Mexico and claimed “Mission Accomplished” while declaring the Gulf area’s beaches “open for business during hsi 27 hour photo-op vacation to Panama City, FL.

To swim or not to swim in the Guld of Mexico, that is the question … One has to wonder whether “The One” is capable of ever having a truthful moment. When he can’t tell the truth or have an honest photo-op when swimming in the water that is supposed to be the Gulf of Mexico, how is anyone supposed to believe Obama on the economy, health care, immigration, etc?

President Barack Obama went swimming off the coast of Florida on Saturday and declared the Gulf area’s beaches “open for business,” trying to show by example that a region hit by the BP oil spill was safe for tourists to enjoy.

Obama, on his fifth visit to the region since BP Plc’s deep-sea well in the Gulf of Mexico ruptured in April, pledged to restore the economy and the environment in the aftermath of the world’s worst offshore oil spill.

Hmm … but did Barack Obama and hid daughter Sasha really go swimming in the Gulf as the MSM reported? The answer is NO. According to the picture taken above by Reuters, Barack and Sasha were swimming at Alligator Point in Panama City Beach, Florida. Take a look at the map at the Gateway Pundit as exactly where Alligator Point really is. Hint, it’s not the Gulf of Mexico, its is inland from the Gulf.

Can this Administration get anything right and can the media actually truthfully report on this President? Thinks the MSM would have done the same if it were George W. Bush? Hardly, the headlines would have read, “Bush doesn’t know difference between Gulf and protected inlet.

      MSM is a Obama propaganda network. Morning Joe was spinning the facts into lies this morning.
      I tried to complain, but all their emails are broken. So I will leave a open Letter to Joe Scarborough on SM.
      Dear Joe,

      Please answer questions?
      Should they build a Mosque next to Ground Zero in NYC?
      Why did you report the head of the ground zero Mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf as a moderate Muslim?
      Why are you ignoring his comments made on “60 Minutes” in 2001 when he said that U.S. foreign policy could be considered an “accessory” to the 9/11 attacks” ? Also his refusal to acknowledge Hamas as a terrorist organization?
      As a taxpayer I object to secretary Clinton using tax payers money to send Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf on a mid east tour!

      Say it Ain’t So, Joe!

      Who is surprised? He still hasn’t proven he’s a U.S. Citizen by his birth certificate. Pretends not to favor Islam over Christianity. Pretends he cares about America. Why is being a bald-faced liar about his trip to the gulf be any different? (it ain’t)

      There were double red flags (beach closed) flying over the weekend at Panama City Beach. He couldn’t legally swim in the Gulf and would’ve been an idiot to try.

      Obama doesn’t have the first idea about what religious freedom means. Take Islam for example. The entire religion, and culture that surrounds it is oppressive and bigoted – to women, to anyone of another religious belief, to anyone who doesn’t follow its tenets. And this a**wipe “president” of ours insists on defending an imam who has excoriated America and American people – similar to the Irreverend Wright.

      christianity is really women friendly either……

      O is the great pretender to the office of President. He is playing let’s pretend while leading the USA down a path to destruction. We are going to hell in the handbasket he is weaving and pretending to be swimming in the “Gulf” is just another way for him to try to get people on his side. While that water he was dipping in may have, at one time, been in the Gulf, it was not the Gulf itself.
