To prove to the American people that the it's now safe to go swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, Barack Hussein Obama put on his Speedo and bravely jumped into Saint Andrew Bay, which technically isn't part of the Gulf of Mexico but, in the words of the Whitehouse photographers, is "close enough for government work."
The president and his family also courageously proved that it's perfectly safe to eat seafood from the Gulf, by going to a restaurant and looking over a menu of shrimp, crab, clams, and oysters before settling on chicken fingers and burgers, no doubt made from the flocks of chickens and herds of cows who are again frolicking in the Gulf of Mexico. Or maybe they were caught in Saint Andrew Bay - it's very hard to tell them apart.
Still, Barack Hussein Obama's actions speak louder than words...especially since with the Ground Zero mosque controversy, the "let me be clear" president has made it abundantly clear that his words mean nothing.
The alleged president swims somewhere sort of near the Gulf of Mexico.
