The mystery begins in a Pittsburgh bar where several high-flying airline types met last month. The group swapped stories over drinks when three people present let loose with a good tale.
Bo, the presidential puppy, recently left a present on the presidential jet, they said, and a flight attendant had nearly stepped in it. Associated Press Bo, the Obama family dog, walks away from Air Force One Aug. 30, 2009, at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., upon the Obamas arrival from a vacation in Marthas Vineyard. You can imagine the horror on board when they discovered what it had done, a participant in the conversation said, referring to Bo. Reports of other puppy-like behavior support the story.
At least two reporters spotted Bo running loose aboard Air Force One this summer. News stories say he chews socks, magazines and the presidential sneakers. In an NBC television interview around the time of the alleged accident, President Barack Obama said Bo has chosen notable venues in the past. We go out and were walking and Im picking up poop, and in the background is the beautifully lit White House, the president said. Its quite a moment.
A White House press official was certainthe scoop on the poop was a crock. The press office checked with the Air Force One flight crew who said Bo had not desecrated the jet... (SNIP)
According to McConnell, he checked with two contacts in the 89th Airlift Wing. Both separately confirmed Bos youthful indiscretion, although neither of them would speak directly with Washington Wire. Of course the dog accident on Air Force One happened, McConnell contends. But the 89th wont go public with it, he said, because it is strict Air Force policy not to discuss passengers activities. The White House stands by its denial.... (SNIP)

If these guys can't even admit the dog took a poop on the plane, what else will they lie about?
Maxine waters did say that bricks would fly.
Adults will have more than just the WH to scrub down in 2012.
If you believe this I have a bridge I'd like to talk to you about.
They lied that it was Bo’s?
Dogs are a reflection of their masters...
Bo shits on AF1.
Obama shits on America.
Compared to the size t*rd we have in the White House, no biggie.
Some poor steward is now going to be assigned to ‘pooch poop patrol’.
We are losing Afganistan, the dollar is bombing, our taxes are about to go sky high, the Marxists have infiltrated our gov’t to trample on our constitution and these idiots are worried that a puppy pooed???????
Oh My Holy Lord, deliver us from evil.
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing! I’ll just bet HE picks up dog poop!
I imagine the dog has been warned that if he does, his owner will "Call him out!"
We need a POOP Czar
What can we expect from poor Bo? Look at the example he has of his master crapping all over this country and the Constitution and leaving it for everyone else to step in and clean up. The stink will be around long after he is ousted.
I’m sure he is not the first dog to poop or crap in the White House or AFO!
Bo shits on AF1.
Obama shits on America.”
Well stated, I was going to post something like it.
Exactly what I was thinking.
Why not just ‘fess up? Anybody who’s owned a dog knows that they cause problems at times, especially during the first year. Unless, of course, you see yourself as the One, whose perfection even extends to your pooch.
Obummer is going to throw poor Bo under the bus!
believe me, that is the mildest thing you will hear being said about Obama in a Pittsburgh bar these days
Maybe Bo doesn’t like Obama and is voicing his opinion in the only way he knows how :)
They probably had some Airforce 06 clean it up for them.
It depends what you mean by “First Dog.”
Don’t flush unless it’s a duce!
The pooch was obviously showing his feelings toward his master...AND the Marxist health care proposals.
Well, Mike Rowe has always said he wants suggestions for his “Dirty Jobs” TV show. He could do an entire hour on what it takes to clean up Air Force One.
If the dog had passed wind, this would have to be in Breaking News.
I think I’m deciding just not to be worried about whether the dog left a little present on AF1.
After the crap was removed from AF1, the cleaning crew cleaned up after the dog.
Okay, that’s not fair to Bo. Bo doesn’t know any better.
I think this says more about how normal Bo might be than what poor training he has had. I’ve got a ten month old Pug, he’s fully housebroken and has been for some time now, but he had an “accident” under the dining room table just this morning.
Why? Because I goofed and left his doggie door closed last night, so he could not get out of the house. If a guy has to go, a guy has to go, and I don’t think I’m a bad dog owner because of one pile of poop no matter where it was left. I’m pretty sure my Gus would gladly crap on Air Force One if left no other opportunity. After all, he can hardly excuse himself and step outside at 30,000 feet...
You poor thing! Ah, the sacrifices you're forced to make....
This is news to the Wall Street Journal???
Oh for Pete's sake...
I wish it had been me.
And this turd was saying he wants his daughters to act responsibly if they get a dog?
I always walk my dog before they ever get in the car. That way you don't have an anxious dog, who instinctively knows he really should poop somewhere else.
I’m more interested in why Bo is left to run about on the WH lawn with no attendant to pick up the poop. City dog rules are that the one with the dog scoops the poop. IIs he left to roam about aimlessly unwatched?
"It's a really nice plane... for me to poop on!"
Sounds like a case for the Hardly Boys:
He lied as it was “below his pay grade” to pick up dog feces.
Wouldn’t that be a brown job?
It was probably Hillary.
Remember how Bubba naturally caused canines to present a "Clinton Moustache?"
Seems reasonable the Big Wee Wee would also cause cause puppy to make a Bo-Bo Doo Doo.
"Honey, I think one of the dogs did a Bernanke on the kitchen floor and then ate it."
"Not only that, but Roscoe has been dragging his Paulson around on the carpet, think he needs those glands squeezed again."
