You Gotta Love America....

Wall Street is in the toilet, unemployment is reaching record highs, and the national debt is exploding.

But what's the news of the day?

"Which hypoallergenic dog will Obama choose for his White House pet?"

ay, caramba


  1. Humm..would it be out of order to say I hope the dog bites him in the ass?

  2. And I'm so sick of the reporter bitten by Bush's dog too. Give me a break.

  3. It just exemplifies where our countries priorities lie. Who cares about the screwed up economy....lets go puppy hunting. I second your angst!

  4. I agree with you on this! Did you celebrate your son's birthday yet? Post pictures, please!
    Take care,

  5. I have to say I'm grateful for some lighthearted news once in a while. I'm tired of all the doom and gloom. It's nice to have a break from it. You know darn well the media is chomping at the bit and they're using the dog thing while they spin their wheels. I watch the news enough to see the repeats on CNN and FOX when they don't have anything juicy enough to slay someone with. American culture trains us to seek out bad news. It's why we have traffic and rubbernecking. How many times can we hear that the stocks are down and unemployment is up. It's not going to change tomorrow.

    Besides, it's a tradition to have a pet in the White House and right now, it's very good publicity for animal activists because shelters are getting a lot of good press from it. Afterall, it has been 8 years since they've reported on the President's Pets.

    All I'm saying is try to look on the bright side. Sometimes just having something positive to shell out should be a top priority.

    Here is a cute article that talks about the history of Presidential Pets and I think you'll enjoy it. Your post prompted me to look it up and learn something I didn't know, so thanks :)

    Hey, if you're lucky, maybe they'll get a pit bull and name it Sarah. ;)
