Obamas Settle on a Dog

Try not to think about the way Chairman Zero is flushing this country's future down the toilet with his multi-$trillion left-wing spending spree. Think of the lighter side: his family is getting a new dog. Michelle has settled on a breed: the Portuguese Water Dog. This rare breed isn't much to look at, but it does possess a symbolically relevant skill:

They are native to Portugal's coast, where they have been used by fishers to herd their catch into nets.

What better sidekick for a socialist ruler? Plus, unlike Plugs, they don't shed.

It even looks a bit like Michelle — although friendlier.

On a tip from Heather M.

Since they're having a problem coming up with a name for the poor dog I suggest "Pinch."

heheh good one it does look like her, you just need to slap it around a few times to develop a vicious mean streak ;)

Is "fishers" a new gender-neutral term for fishermen?

Haven't seen that one before.

You can say things like this as long as it is not a monkey. It will be black. Is it going to be a bitch or a son of a bitch? Looks like a nappy fur coat.

Why does Obama need another dog, he already has one named Michelle?

I would have thought a Papillion would be more in keeping with the Obamas. Pretty-looking but useless. It's also French, which would excite the Europhiles on the left. They could have two, and name them "Tax" and "Spend".

With millions of dogs and cats being destroyed every year simply because there are no homes for them, the Obamas could have set a good example by getting a shelter dog. They make the most wonderful companions!

This rare breed isn't much to look at,...

In that case, it'll fit right in to their family.

The "Obama's" have set several examples so far, all of them consisted of "Do as I Say - NOT as I Do". And NONE of them were good. He is a Typical Hypocritical Liberal.

Methinks they should have got a boxer dog, and named it Barbara. 'Nuff said.

Yes, I agree with MST. They should have adopted a dog from a shelter. What kind of example are they setting? Plus, once they get this dog....crazy, disreputable breeders all over the country are going to start churning them out at high rates to keep up with all the fools who say "Oh, I want to have a Portugese Water Dog...that's what the Obama's have." Of course, most of them don't even know where Portugal is....or know the first thing about dogs and proper care of dogs.

Also, I read somewhere that one of the Obama girls is allergic to dogs. Why?? Why?? Why would you get a dog if your child is allergic to one. I think (correct me if I'm wrong) that even non-shedding dogs can be problems for people with allergies.

Haha! Michelle looks like a dog! Knee-slapper! Enjoy your generation-long exile, Repugtards.

Portugese water dogs or Porties are actually really cool dogs. Their fur is hypo-alergenic so people with allergies can have them which is why the Obama's got one. Porties are the best swimming dogs I have ever seen which is good because with our sinking economy we will be swimming in debf forever. Anyone bring their flippers?

BO doesn't deserve such as these!

Giant Slug: I recall you saying the exact same thing the first month Jimmy Carter took office.

SnowSnake: you had me rolling on that comment. It was mean and funny like Michelles face.

Cool story, bro.

I prefer the Austrailan Cattle Dog due to the fact that they go for the ankels

Anonymous: And I remember you saying something just a few years ago about a "permanent majority." How'd that work out for you, by the way?
