    This picture has to scall the GOP. They must remember that Americans alway route for the POTUS. Newt looked like a grumpy old fool putting down Obama's dog. As Americans we want to like Obama and people putting him down look like the problem. GO BO!

    I am impressed with this type of a dog. It has known its master already in a quite very short time!

    Me thinks that Bo will be the Prez dog. Now let us see if we have an "Air Bo" when they go on the basketball court.

    I'm soo glad that President Obama finally got the dog. I am most pleased that he named the dog after my city in Sierra Leone Bo which means "this is yours." You go Mr. President!

    Oooooh, how cute! Run, doggie, run! I am so glad that Malia and Sasha got their puppy, finally. A puppy can bring so much joy to children. They are so adorable and lovable....both puppy and child.

    I am pleased the Obamas have adopted a dog, and gave a donation to the SPCA. I am sorry that the puppy is not a rescue. I understand the allergy problem that one of the daughter's has, but there are rescue groups for pure breds. I am sure there is one for this breed. It would have been such a wonderful message to the Country. There are so many homeless pets. With the economy, this serious problem has been exacerbated.

    Pres. Obama and his family deserves to have Bo's unconditional love and loyalty!! Bo will bring them lots of happiness and fun, too. And I look forward to seeing those beautiful girls at play with Bo on the WH lawn.....

    In case anyone doesnt say it, no this is not news... in terms that this is nothing important. But so what? CNN nor any other Internet news site is prevented from posting such things. So read it... if you wish. Post that you dont think it is news... if you wish. But that would mean its significant enough to read the story and say something.

    A running dog in the White House is cute. No more no less and one of the funnier things in contrast to all the other serious news of the day. Oh one thing is actual news: The fact that yesterday Newt had an issue with CNN mentioning that the dog came from a dying man showed how crude of a person he is.

  24. Too True For You

    Nice to see. It looks like from this picture, and he fact that there are two kids in the WH, that this dog might actually be a real pet rather than an ornament.

    I am sure the Obama-haters will find some way to disparage this picture and take further potshots at the innocent issue of the First Families dog. All the while crying about how hateful and divisive "libruls" are.

    Aaaaaaah, that is so cute. I'm sure the Obama girls are overjoyed with the new family tradition. America is very thrilled, every family should have a "family pet," and the Obama's are no exception.

    THANK you Senator Kennedy for giving such a wonderful GIFT to Sasha and Malia, I'm sure they will take GREAT care of their new puppy Bo!!!

    TO ALL THE HATERS - don't hate. President Obama was given the dog as a gift, otherwise they would have "adopted" a dog from the shelter as planned. In any manner, they GOT a dog that meets their daughter's allergic needs, and that's is MORE important than any haters comments!!
