Bo, Bo, Bo! Adorable White House
dog steals the spotlight from Michelle

Michelle Obama is typically the star of the show when she attends a charity event. That wasn´t the case when she recently read Twas The Night Before Christmas at a Washington area children´s hospital. As she sat down on stage to begin reading the classic tale to the tiny tots, Bo the First Dog jumped right up on his mother´s lap. He seemed quite comfy as well, since he didn´t move from the position throughout the seven minute session.[Snip] That was no matter for Michelle, however, as she gamefully played along and even jokingly held the book out so that

Comments:
Bo was trained to do that--staged. Where´s M´s usual surliness? Botoxed out? Yes, it´s the Christmas season; yes, I´m jaded and cynical; no, I don´t have any evidence--do I need it this time?

May be botoxed, but most unattractive. You´d think her many makeup people could do a little better than that.

All animals entering a hospital are supposed to be certified "service" dogs. And certified service dogs do NOT jump on people.

Absolutely no limit to the special privilege that the obama´s take.

One does wonder if it was staged, but from what else we´ve seen of Bo, he is probably untrained. (The Obamas are notorious rule-breakers.)

"Adorable W.H. dog"? Hardly. BTW, we´ll give them a "break" when they give US, a break on what it is costing US for THEIR many excellent adventures back and forth to whatever parts unknown they choose. Now the "family" and their clown-posse have to fly back to D.C. on separate jets, AGAIN at OUR expense, so that obama can have another photo-op to beat up on John Boehner and Republicans. A "break"? They don´t need one.

what a difference! Remember the Bush´s reading to children? A lot of the time, they were gathered right around the First Lady and the President.
Now they are many feet away behind a rope. Even the royals in England get closer.

The Mail is hammering away on this cutesy story. Second article I´ve seen this morning.

The video shows that she plops down in the chair and promptly beckons to Bo to come into her lap, where she wrestles a bit to get him positioned just right. And she continues to stroke him.

She was not surprised. More Mail drama where there is none.

Re #5, the hospitals in our area allow certain dogs to be brought in to soothe and comfort patients. Especially in the rehab units. (They would not be in the CCU or other acute care areas.) None of these dogs is a certified service dog. Just mannerly pets.

Let me just say right off the bat that I have no intention of reading this article. I will, however, point out that the headline calls Bo the ´White House dog´, not ´the Obama´s dog´ or ´President Obama´s dog´, but the ´White House dog´. I find that interesting.

Was the dog named "Bo" in honor of his owner?

LBJ used to name everything he could with the moniker intials "LBJ"--Lady Bird Johnson, Lucy Baines Johnson, Linda Bird Johnson... he was a megalomaniac too, so...

If you watch the video, it is actually the little boy on the left who steals the spotlight. He keeps waving at someone off stage--his parents, presumably--and at the audience and reprimands Michelle when she isn´t letting the dog see the book (and can´t "read" it). He is more interested in the dog than the story or the First Lady.

Bo wants to sit on her lap and races to get there before the girls. Really? Girls that old want to sit on mommy´s lap? Enough! (and that goes for the girls always holding their parents´ hands. Sure.)

Harry Reid calls dissident Nevada ranchers
´domestic terrorists´ following show of
force against the federal government
Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/19/2014 9:29:17 AM     Post Reply
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

One of Europe´s most powerful media tycoons has accused Google of seeking to create a digital ´superstate´ outside the control of national regulators and privacy laws. Mathias Döpfner, head of the giant German multi-media company Axel Springer, says Wir haben Angst vor Google: "We are afraid of Google." [Snip] Writing an open letter to Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google, in the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Döpfner said: "Google not only knows where we are going in our cars, but also what we do while we’re driving.

One of US president Barack Obama´s leading campaign strategists has been recruited by Labour to play a key role in Ed Miliband´s bid for Downing Street in next year´s general election. David Axelrod, who is credited with masterminding Mr Obama´s presidential victories in 2008 and 2012, will join Labour´s general election campaign team as a senior strategic adviser, the party announced. His appointment was been hailed by Labour as a major coup, and ´´seriously bad news for the Conservatives´´, at a time when Mr Miliband has been under fire from sections of his own party for his campaign tactics.

I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist. The university´s decision to pull the

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged.

The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery."

The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
