Sometimes it's the stupid little things that catch our attention. What caught my eye was this story from Fox News.
The story is about Barack Obama getting his children a puppy for when they move into the White House.
Now I realize this story is not very relevant and, quite frankly, I really could care less if they get a dog. His children are small and dogs can be good pets. If the dog makes them happy, I am happy because I like to see children happy.
The thing that strikes me about this though is, why now? If his concern was his children's happiness, then why didn't he get them one before?
I can't help but thinking, hopeless cynic that I am, that he feels a need to get one because he is the President now. There is a long history of Presidents having dogs. One notable exception was the Clinton's having a cat but this was not that unusual if you think about it. It was no secret that Bill liked, oops, I try to keep this blog PG-13.
I can't help but think though that Obama getting his children a dog tells us something about him that is not very flattering.
I doubt I am breaking any new ground by saying that Obama is a cold calculating person who is essentially no substance, only style. He is nothing more than a fabrication of left wing power players, manufactured to run for the Presidency. He has no accomplishments in his short career to point to. He has no firm stance on anything other than pushing a far left socialistic agenda. Quite frankly, there is no there there.
I think his getting a dog is a way for him to appear Presidential. The perfect White House family. There is already talk of them being the new Camelot.
This would be laughable if people would stop and think what the Kennedy's stand for. They were all nothing more than adulterers, drunks, and at least two of them, murderers. One would be hard pressed to find a Kennedy without a substance abuse problem. They are effectively white trash with money.
Keep in mind though that the Democrats idolized Bill Clinton also, so I think it is easy to infer that these types of people are the ideals for the far left.
It would be nice if we could hope that Obama would attempt to appear Presidential by being a strong and decisive leader but I think it's clear that this is too much to hope for. So, on to plan B, get a dog and appear Presidential, at least 52% of the people in the country are stupid enough to buy anything.
