The President promotes Gulf Coast travel

President Barack Obama is encouraging Americans to visit the Gulf Coast despite the huge offshore oil spill. At a White House news conference last week, Obama said while three beaches in Louisiana have been fouled by oil, the rest of the region's beaches are clean and safe. He says Gulf state governors have asked him "to remind everybody" the beaches are open.
