Why does Barack Obama force taxpayers to spend $102,000 per year on his dog?

Why does Barack Obama force taxpayers to spend $102,000 per year on his dog?

The Daily Caller reports that Bo Obama has a “dog handler” who is paid $102,000 per year of taxpayers’ money.

Any normal, decent human being takes responsibility for their own dog. Many dog owners use their own money to hire pet sitters to walk their dog while the dog’s owner is at work. Many dog owners require their own children to play a role in caring for their dog. These things are normal, and they are the responsible thing to do.

By forcing taxpayers to spend $102,000 per year on his dog, Barack Obama is showing that he has zero respect for the taxpayers.

For more examples of horrible things that Obama has done, please see my earlier post Here are 95 examples of Barack Obama’s lying, lawbreaking, corruption, and cronyism.

When the dog is no longer needed as a prop, Obama wants to be sure he’ll still be tasty.

How many times did the dog take a separate flight on military planes on the hussein’s many family boondoggles? And why did hussein do it? Another screw you America moment.

That dog has no owner. Muzzies hate and loathe dogs. He only got the poor thing because Americans like their leaders to have dogs and cats.

That number is far too low. How about all those times Bo has to go to the groomer, the vet and how many times has he had his own extra special flight for vacations? You know Moochelle is getting the WH chefs to make him fresh and healthy food from the WH garden and specialty meat markets. Then there’s his toys and brushes and leashes and pooper scoopers. Don’t tell me his owners pay for that because we all know they’re entitled to any and all tax dollars they can hide under the table.

Exactly.

Kenneling is expensive. I have yet to hear one story where and of the Barracks spend time with the dog outside of photo ops.

I’m not a dog person, but many people say that dogs are great judges of character.

I wonder if Bo has ever bitten Baraq?

This is called “picking pepper out of fly-$hit”. For the job that the President is required to do (regardless of party affiliation) its not commensurate pay for the work, travel and conditions. We all take for granted that we can walk out our front door, without an army of agents following us, do things spur of the moment, etc. The President can't. I wouldn't expect our President to pick up the bill while in office for any normal living expenses including the care of his family pets. By virtue of being President, it costs more for the pet....so be it.

That being said.... let's breakdown that $6 trillion he spent... the $100k for the dog is “picking pepper out of fly-$hit”.

every time the moonfaced media showed Buraq with the dawg, the poor animal was straining at the leash to get away from him

Even the dawg won’t play with Buraq unless he ties a sausage around his neck

Haven’t seen anyone walking Bo or flyin’ him in his own airplane since Reggie got the boot by order of Big Mama Moochelle

Because it makes the America-hating communist POS out to be an everyday normal American with an everyday normal American family. The dog probably loves and respects the country more than either of them.

Why? For the same reason we lowly taxpayers are footing a $1.4 billion bill for the 0bama family`s comfortable life and entertainment.

As it is right now, he is King and we are serfs. We the unwashed are expected to feel honored to finance the extravagant, jet-setting lifestyles of the Royal Family. Want to change that? Let`s vote 0bama him out of office in November.

Got that, you Gary Johnson, Ron Paul and Virgil Goode voters and stay-at-homes?

Actually, it was fulfillment of a promise to his kids. They wanted a dog, long before he ran for President.

I think he knew that he could pass off responsibility to a handler, if he was in the White House. I expect that when he leaves, someone else will adopt the dog.

Obama claims his daughter is allergic to dogs. I suspect it is really an aversion.... his.

Could it be that Obama is a Mohammedan and cannot touch a dog?

Well, and that’s another thing — they care so little for the poor dog, they wouldn’t even train him properly. (to heel and not be pulling like that)

That would take too much work and the affirmative action occupier might break a fingernail. You’d think with all of their wads of cash, they could at least pay for a dog trainer.

Other Obastard outrages:

The president can to appoint high-paid staffers without Senate confirmation: Obama has 469 senior staffers and 226 are paid more than $100,000 a year, according to the book. Seventy-seven are paid as much as $172,000 per year. He also has appointed 43 “czars.”

The president can vacation for free at Camp David: Gray writes that each round trip made to Camp David costs the taxpayers $25,350. It’s also estimated that the combined transportation and personnel costs for a Camp David visit are $295,000 per night.

The president has a full-time movie projectionist in the White House theater: Projectionists sleep at the White House and are there 24 hours a day in case anyone needs to see a movie. “Compared to the 450 times President Carter used the movie theater in his four years in the White House, the average American citizen, according to industry statistics, goes out to see a movie slightly less than five times a year,” Gray writes.

The president’s family’s gets certain travel and security expenses paid while vacationing: “First Lady Michelle Obama drew flack from the media and irate citizens when it was disclosed that, not counting Saturdays and Sundays, she spent 42 days on vacation — within the span of one year.”

The president’s dog gets its own high-paid staffer: “Bo made the news when he and his handler were flown to join the president on vacation in Maine,” Gray wrote about the Obama family dog. “It has been reported that the first family’s dog handler was paid $102,000, last year.”

Just one more area where he can turn up his nose at the American people with yet another example of contemptuous gluttony.

He’s making US spend more on his dog that he (we?) spend on his 2 kids’ private schooling at Sidwell Friends. Brian Williams, why, oh why, can you not ask him about this??
