Did the Obamas Steal Their Dog?You know, I’m starting to miss the Lesbo-Hillary Clinton-Killed-Her-Lover-Vince Foster-While-Slick Willy-Ran-Columbian Drug Cartels-in-Mena stories.
Not exactly of the same import as economic or foreign policy, but…. this President -- the one who felt it was appropriate that the President of the United States could dictate compensation policy at U.S. banks and determine who should run American automakers -- may have commandeered his dog from another owner.
Here's the story, as it is being reported. Bo was sold to a D.C. resident late last year or early this year. Another dog out of the same litter was sold to Ted Kennedy. Bo was returned to the breeder in March and was sent directly to the Kennedy's dog trainer in Northern Virginia. From there, he is to become the newest White House resident.
Reading between the lines, is it difficult to imagine a typical D.C. power play here? The Kennedys, because they are the Kennedys, saw an opportunity to do a favor for the White House. They arranged for the unnamed third party to "return" his dog to the breeder (itself an unusual occurence short of health concerns for the puppy) so that the Kennedys could become the heroes in locating just the perfect dog for the Obamas.
I can't wait until we find out who the third party was and how he was compensated. Any takers on a bet that he has his own political agenda that was likely accommodated?
I wouldn't put any of this past the Obamas.
