Did Obama pull a fast one in claiming that he went swimming in the Gulf of Mexico

It is a little surprising that the press didn't complain about having to rely on the White House photographer for this photo. If Bush had pulled this off and not gone swimming in the Gulf, what would the reaction have been?

President Barack Obama wanted to convince America that the Gulf of Mexico remains open for business. But perhaps he didn't want the world to catch another glimpse of his hairless chest.

So when he and his daughter, Sasha, took a dip in the sea off Florida this weekend, only the White House photographer was allowed to capture proceedings.

The official picture was intended to provide evidence that the region's beaches are back to normal. Yet it soon emerged that the private beach on which it was taken, off Alligator Point in St Andrew Bay, north-west Florida, isn't technically in the gulf. . . .
