So who was the “Just Dance 3” bought for?

It’s not going to be much of a surprise now.

Did he put it on his presidential credit card?

Don’t tell the Occupy crowd that he shopped at a “box box” store. Those are run by the eeeevil 1%.

The smartest president ever.

According to the professor who came to our office for Black History Month and lectured us ignorant white folk for a solid hour on the sainthood of Obama, he's the most brilliant man ever to draw a breath.

I've boycotted those stupid events ever since.

According to many state laws pets are not allowed in many stores except if they are a guide animal. If Obama took Bo into Best Buy then the law should be all over him. Oh wait, he is above the law..sorry. Not enough coffee.

Now, how did "big box" become "box box"? Did Jim put gremlins in the machinery?

PetSmart encourages you to bring your dog in their stores if it is on a leash.

He [nobama] went Christmas shopping.

I doubt that was his intent as molsems do not celebrate or even recognize Christmas.

“”picking up some gifts for daughters Malia and Sasha.””

To obozo: I guess when you’re a flat out liar, you can’t remember that you once said you don’t buy your girls Christmas presents. Gee - that made you sound so profound, so above the rest of us and now I’m sooooo disappointed in you!

Have any of us ever seen any person shopping with their dog? I’ve never even seen a seeing eye dog in stores...

And why did he go to Virginia to shop? Why did he diss the good retailers of the District of Columbia? The White House is in that District. Doesn’t he believe in supporting his hometown businesses? The state of Virginia, rather than DC, is getting the sales tax revenue from his spending.

Yeah, if Obamao owned a convenience store or fast food restaurant, it would be the one with the line around the corner that you see on the way to Grandma's house on Christmas Day.

You’re absolutely right. IIRC, Before the White House, they didn’t celebrate Christmas or Birthdays...It has something to do with the word “Happy”. I believe Merry Christmas was early on referred to as Happy Christmas.

A $41 chew toy for a dog is a disgusting display of decadence.

I hope his supporters on welfare, food stamps and housing vouchers are happy for him.

Probably so.

Obama ducked out of the White House at about 12:45 p.m. for a quick jaunt into Virginia, where he dropped more than $235 in less than an hour.
