So the Obamas got another Portuguese Water Dog. I believe this was widely covered by the American press at the same time they were ignoring how members of the religion of peace were slaughtering Christians, burning churches and starving Copts in Egypts but hey priorities, amirite?
The dog is the story. And, as with every other story put forth about him, the first thing Obama does is tell a lie about it and no one in the media questions it. When news of the new dog broke , Obama pulled out his “I’m just a poor old dad” routine and said they HAD to get another dog because 15 year old Malaria and 12 year Sausage would be leaving for college soon and Mom and Dad would be empty nesters. In 6 years.
[The story has now morphed into the old dog Bo being lonely so a second dog was necessary to give him dog companionship. To quote the brilliant Liz, “Whatever, you moron”.]
The second thing he did, also true to character, is pull out the Arrogance Card and make one of his folksy remarks that reminds us yet again what a complete dick he is. This time it was at the very end of one of those love-fests that CNN calls “an interveiw”:
First Lady Michelle Obama, meanwhile, is in “full parenting mode,” the president said — especially because little Sunny has already had a few accidents in the White House. The president didn’t seem too concerned though. “We live in rental housing. We didn’t have to put down a deposit,” he said.
There’s your president, America.
