Sasha Obama Becomes Dad’s Gulf Coast Tourism Prop

Meanwhile, President Obama takes criticism for using his kids as PR stunts.

President Obama, Michelle and Sasha (Malia is away at camp) went on a vacation to Panama City Beach, Florida this weekend to encourage tourism to Gulf Coast beaches. "As a result of the clean up effort, beaches all along the Gulf Coast are clean, safe and open for business", the president said.

To prove it, he took poor Sasha into the beach’s waters.

Generally, the official White House photostream only includes beautiful impeccable photos but in this photo Sasha doesn’t even have her eyes open, which leads me to believe the girl was in the water for 0.5 seconds.
