Obama campaign looks to First Dog Bo Obama to woo Americans

Francesca Chambers

With Big Bird out of the picture, the Obama campaign is relying on a new cuddly creature to win over Americans’ hearts and minds: The First Dog Bo.

Late this afternoon the Obama campaign uploaded a “Happy Birthday Bo Obama” video to its YouTube that features Barack and Michelle Obama. Ironically not about the First Dog’s fourth birthday at all and shows almost the same amount of footage of Barack and Michelle talking as it does the First Dog.

In the heartwarming video the first couple talks about how the first dog generally only listens to the President because he is intimidated by his “booming voice” and how compassionate the President is for letting Bo climb on the couch.

The video is clearly an attempt to make the First Family look more down to earth and help them connect to the middle class Americans Obama is targeting with his reelection efforts.

I thought dogs were considered unclean by the followers of Mohammad.

Bo The Dog is the only thing I actually have respect for in the White House. I feel bad for that pooch, he must wonder everyday when his master is going to eat him

If it walks like a dog, looks like a dog, smells like a dog, and sounds like a dog, it’s a dog.

Fitting description for zero’s campaign....

I thought dogs were considered unclean by the followers of Mohammad.

Well, this so-called "follower of Mohammad" used to EATS dogs.

"The Daily Caller noted that in President Obama’s best-selling memoir, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, the president recalls being fed dog meat as a young boy in Indonesia with his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro.

“With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy),” the president wrote. “Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths.

He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.”"

Wow...

Nightline had a softball piece on Moochelle last night - same purpose, to ‘humanize’ her.

Put Bo in a debate against Ann Romney's horse. Bo would probably just slobber for a while and then lick himself on national TV... kind of like his owner did.

Im hoping for humane treatment for Bo, when Obama is voted out.

That’s my hope when things change, anyway.

Let’s not forget that the current Occupancy in our White0house (after doing a hundred other things to get elected while hiding his real identity from us), refused and refused and refused again to get his kids a dog. It took America’s great politically-astute swimming champion Ted Kennedy to fix the Moslem-dog problem by making a public gift of Bo to the Occupancy. Bo is a very cute pooch but deserves all of our watchful care since he’s now forced to live with a man who eats dogs. Pray for Bo and pray for America.

It’s nice that they’ve been able to keep their dog while millions of others have had to give up their pets thanks to Obama’s economy.

Too bad Bo's trainer died maybe she could have taught him some new tricks. Funny she wasn't ill she just collapsed went into a coma and died she was around 51 or so I wonder if she new Breitbart.

May Bo's trainer rest in peace. It is very strange the number of relatively young people close to Obama who have had untimely deaths.

Bo looks confused. I wonder if Bo actually spends any time with the first family at all or if he is just a political tool. Bo's behavior reminds me of the Gilda Radner skit on the old Saturday Night Live show where she was a confused kid torn between her two fighting parents.
