Bo and Sunny are definitely cute but I wish the Obama's had welcomed a shelter animal or two into their home. Thanks Carrie.

Yes, Sunny is big news. The economy, as usual, along with Benghazi, is not being addressed. Our lackluster leading from behind president has a new dog. Yippee! Why didn't they rescue a dog?

The economy belongs to the lazy, self serving, do nothing congress, and Benghazi is no news.

Our slow economy, our slow recovery from a deep recession sits at Obama's feet. The "do nothing congress" was due to a tsunami vote in 2010 when Americans, like us, went out to vote the spending democrats out of their jobs and replaced them with "no spending" republicans. That's a fact. The American people, with their votes, created gridlock in congress. This was exactly what they wanted to do.

Benghazi is very important whether you want to address it or not. Americans were murdered due to our Secretary of State at the time, Hillary Clinton, who ignored their request for more security. She simply ignored them. Now she has aspirations to be the first woman President in 2016. From where I sit, after her public display of "What difference does it make?" tells us that she is nowhere near ready to be the POTUS. Do your research and when you do zero in on how Hillary treats those who work for her....her demanding ways, her anger, her superiority complex and her blatant incompetence. The republicans will play this like a well tuned violin when she runs for POTUS. Our country is nowhere near ready to elect a woman to the highest office in our country in case you haven't paid attention to that. Hillary is not qualified, and neither was Obama, to lead our country. She has tremendous baggage trailing her. She also has a husband, a former president who lied under oath and was impeached. This is NOT what we want sitting in our White House.

The economy is stagnant because of Obama's incompetence. Period.

Benghazi will NOT go away. The American people will insist on transparency. Trust me, this will NOT be swept under the carpet.

Hillary is a loose cannon. She has personal issues in her private life and in her public life.

Hillary is a waste of time IMO.

Diane, it would be much easier to take you seriously if you knew what you were talking about and didn't rely on FAUX News for all of your information.

Former President Bill Clinton was impeached????!! Geesh, how did that get by me??! lmao. It's too bad people can't get their facts straight before getting on here to rant. lol. Thanks for posting, Carrie. :-)

Nyack, I know Bill Clinton wasn't impeached, I was being facetious because of a post by another member here saying he was. lol. I watched it on tv when he was relentlessly interrogated by Kenneth Starr, and ended up winning the case. He may not have been a good husband, but he was a good president. Thanks, though, Nyack, for your comments. :-)

Bill Clinton WAS impeached but wasn't convicted. But, the truth is Clinton WAS impeached.

I stand corrected, Diane. Bill Clinton was impeached, but not ousted. I just wish that a family, no matter who they are, but especially WHO THEY ARE in this case, getting a family dog, didn't have to evoke such harsh criticism and pull politics into the happy occasion when a dog gets a great home with a companion, Bo, to boot.
Simply put, Bill Clinton WAS impeached. The impeachment process is similiar to a Grand Jury in which the House stands as the jury and decides whether or not sufficient evidence of a high crime or misdemeanor is sufficent to turn it over to trial in the Senate. So yes Bill Clinton WAS impeached...but the Senate accquitted him so he was not ousted from office.

Interestingly enough, the charges - which was perjury (lying under oath) - were enforced by the judge of the trial in which he lied. Bill Clinton was fined and lost his license to practice law.

So while he was not punished by the Senate, the judge DID enforce the charge...which BTW WAS true...the court transcripts were proof of that.

Very cute pup. I wish them many years of happiness with both their four-legged family members. Talk about lucky dogs!

Addressed to those members that are thinking this of Dogs Rights People that are upset,

"You're in ill informed. 1 of the Obama girls is allergic to dogs, which is why they never had one. It was discovered that she could tolerate Ted Kennedy's Port. water dog, so he bought them Bo. Find 1 of these rare dogs in a shelter; I dare ya!" From a member's introduction to me.


I do NOT believe it for a second, nice try 'The Compromising Capitalist' President Obama and administration and First Lady Wife Michele Obama!
Ask yourself this, where this when there were campaigning and promises made by 'The Compromising Capitalist' President Obama? On top where was this when 'The Compromising Capitalist' President Obama bought the first breed dog?
*-I am sorry for you, and scared for The USA, because you are so ready to give 'The Compromising Capitalist' President Obama, his administration and First Lady Wife Michele Obama a pass, for using the problem of puppy mills and breeding dogs and dogs in shelters/dog prisons and some are guaranteed to be put to sleep. This is a life and death Dogs and All Other Beings Rights Issue!
Let us just say, for arguments sake what you say is true, and then the very fact that this has not made public until now is wrong and playing politics. The first principle anyone does is the truth, if you have a reason that is the truth you bring it out and what you are working on for it not to happen again. I passed with B+s the local Community College’s PR & Marketing Courses and that is PR basics, not PRing/corrupted PR basics. It does not matter if you want to keep your children out of the media and public, which I can understand outside this situation- he is not an average person and never got campaigned about adopting a dog, when you are keeping it a secret is helping the problem of puppy mills and breeding dogs and dogs in shelters/dog prisons and some are guaranteed to be put to sleep in the eyes of your supporters.
Plus, there are organizations that save single breed breed dogs from shelters and you will find single breed breed dogs if one looks hard enough. The shelters are telling people that will listen that they are there. The reason you do not believe that dog can found there is because you do not care enough to look hard enough. There are many organizations that find single breed breed dogs in shelters, and adopt them to get them adopted by the public. There obviously, long waiting lists; but of course, if you do not think The USA President, Administration and First Lady Wife, and First Children (especially 'The Compromising Capitalist' variety) does not have the resources to get one now, from such organization you are deluded not worth this message.
