Obama’s Bloody Thursday

If I worked at the White House, I’d get in extra early on Thursday, having had valium for breakfast.

The Supreme Court will announce its decision on Obamacare, and the House will vote on whether Eric Holder is in contempt over Fast and Furious.

Some early Fourth of July fireworks will be exploding at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Note to Sasha and Malia — You don’t want to ask for a raise in your allowance on Thursday.

Note to Bo — You don’t want to mess on any carpets on Thursday.

Note to Michelle — You don’t want to make a fuss if the Prez has a cigarette (or half a pack) on Thursday.

 

 

Why Bo Sleeps With One Eye Open

Yesterday, Jim Treacher at The Daily Caller, the web site founded by Tucker Carlson, who has gone from wanting to be George Will (see old clips with bow tie and preppy glasses) to wanting to be Andrew Breitbart (see red meat on said web site), posted a story saying that we can’t be outraged about Mitt’s putting his Irish Setter Seamus on the roof of his station wagon for a 12-hour trip because President Obama admitted in his book Dreams From My Father that he actually ate dog while he was a child living in Indonesia.

And so that inevitably led to #ObamaDogRecipes, and Politico‘s pick of the top 11 tweets:

When Obama asks for a DOGGY BAG he really means a bag with a dog in it

Bo Helps, Seamus Hurts

Forget Iran, Afghanistan, unemployment, and the deficit.  Now the presidential polls are about dogs.  Asked who would be a better president for dogs, 37% said President Obama and 21% said Mitt.

Apparently, Mitt’s making a 12-hour trip to Canada with his dog Seamus on the roof of his station wagon is taking a toll.  His favorables/unfavorables are upside down when voters are asked their opinion about Mitt’s treatment of dogs.  He has 20% favorable, but 29%, so a negative 9% spread.

By contrast, 44% have a favorable view of President Obama’s treatment of dogs,with 14% unfavorable, so a net positive of 30%.

What about the cats?
