Obama‘s Dog ’Bo’ Flown in From Hawaii for Presidential Photo Op





Was presidential pooch Bo Obama flown in from his Hawaiian vacation early to pose for a photo op with the president at a local PetSmart store? White House Dossier reports that Bo showed up at Obama’s side Wednesday shopping for dog treats at PetSmart.



But, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, Bo had in fact flown to Hawaii with Michelle Obama and her daughters. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser even quoted an eyewitness who said he had seen the Portuguese Water Dog being walked in the tropical paradise.



So why was Bo posing for photo ops in D.C. with the president?



WH Dossier attempts to make sense of it all:





Either these reports are mistaken, or Bo was told his vacation was over and that he had to return to the White House to keep a lonely president company – and participate in a silly photo op presenting Obama as an average guy who likes to head out to the PetSmart.



If Bo returned from Hawaii, who paid for his flight?



It’s possible he hitched a ride on a return flight of the Air Force plane that brought Michelle from Hawaii, which wouldn’t have really added much to Michelle’s more than $100,000 price tag for her solo trip.



Or maybe he commandeered his own Air Force jet.



This is not the first time, however, that the Obama’s have attempted to appear as “ordinary people” by shopping at local retailers (despite the cadre of Secret Service following in tow), thus the idea that Bo might have been flown in specially for a photo op with the president is not neccessarily far-fetched.

  • This very cool dog, is a Portuguese Water-dog that was given to them by Ted Kennedy.
    The very definition of irony right there, and I doubt Ted or the 0bama's even caught it.

  • LMAO about fake scandal...

    White House says Bo didn't come with first family to Hawaii

    There's a flurry of reports in the blogosphere today on whether first dog Bo was flown back from Hawaii to the nation's capital for a photo op after President Barack Obama and Bo appeared Wednesday at a store in Alexandria, Va.

    Scott Miscovich, who lives down the street from the Obama vacation rental home on Kailuana Place told the Star-Advertiser Sunday, "My wife saw Michelle and the kids passing by a More..

    • @smyle Doesn't matter. The right will pick another false scandal and outrage to run with. The same people who rationalized Iran Contra are bitching about Fast and Furious. First it was the Muslim/ Socialist thing, then the Birther thing. Something gets disproven, they pretend it was true anyways and keep attacking. It's fucking crazy.

  • Seems to me every president is being "sold" to us all the time like a neverending TV commercial.

    But Obama... I think is more of a fake PR construct than any other to date.

    As for the dog, who cares.

      Although I'm Canadian, I do keep an eye on American Politics, and it's no longer hard to see that Obama said a whole lot of things before getting elected, and he's delivered not much on the financial reform front. And even funnier, he continued to strip the american people from their rights with this NDAA act. Democrat, Republican, I think at this point it seems to barely mean anything.

      And like you said, the dog is really a non issue at this point. After the NDAA who needs to harass More..

      it disturbed me how the racists opposed President Obama's election and it still disturbs me when i read racist taunts against Barack.i sometimes wonder if it was their cruel taunts and the pressure from the neocons that forced him to embrace the evil pro-Zionist warmongering policies of Bush and Dick Cheney.

      i despaired and fell into a bleak depression for several long months until i discovered the teachings or Dr Ron Paul.

      Dr Paul is the only republican that i could ever vote for a More..
