Axelrod: All loving pet owners use taxpayer-provided limos, or something

posted at 12:45 pm on January 31, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

If this is any indication of the skill level David Axelrod will bring to the fall campaign …. Republicans have less to worry about than they think.  Barack Obama’s campaign mastermind tweeted out this photo of the President and his dog Bo as a thinly-veiled attack on Mitt Romney and a very old story about his own dog:

How loving owners transport their dogs.

Really? Do most “loving owners” have access to limousines funded by taxpayers, driven by Secret Service agents?  Way to go after the one percent, Axe!  Romney may not have made the best decision possible with the dog carrier, but if that’s the only basis for Obama and his team to attack Romney, it’s pretty fair to say that this dog won’t hunt.

Who am I talking about in this picture.

He has the letters BO in his name.
He’s black AND white.
He’s got big floppy ears.
He likes getting his a$$ kissed.
He’s got zero business experience.
He doesn’t worry about the messes he makes because someone else always cleans it up.
He whines and howls when he doesn’t get what he wants.
He gets more positive press than any Republican since 2008.
He seems to always be on a short leash at home.
He’s pampered.

Maybe I’m slow here and everybody else picked up on this long before now, but did Obama pick the dog’s name because BO are his initials?

Yeah, I’ve gotta be slow…

See Bo. That’s the airplane you’re going to fly on. Muslims don’t fly with dogs, pigs, or wives that don’t wear burkas. Now get out of this armored limo that burns fossil fuels at 5 miles per gallon and get on that plane.

NO! You dumb dog. That Moochelle’s plane with the lobsters and Iranian caviar on it. Get on your own airplane with the Purina Dog Chow and $5000 government pooper scooper!

DSchoen on January 31, 2012 at 11:38 PM

I’m so sick of hearing about the greatness of the Obama 2008 election team. The ONE thing campaigns have to do is handle the press and get good press. Since the MSM was 100% in the bag for obama, axelrod and co. didn’t actually have to do anything at all. They didn’t have to get out the vote, because the electorate was juiced to vote. they didn’t have to even attack much because the MSM took care of that, savaging mccain and palin and ignoring biden and covering for obama.

All that said, Romney is a scumbag and I’ll laugh when he loses, laugh in the faces of the scumbag g.o.p. establishment types who forced him on us. I’m sitting this election out, and I hope obama wins. then the gop powers-that-be will have mccain AND romney to answer for.

babygiraffe on February 1, 2012 at 12:53 AM

What a ridiculous and idiotic looking dog. Obviously was the runt of the litter, has stupid markings and probably craps all over the rug.

The animal with the stars and stripes collar looks uncomfortable too.

I’d like to see Barry lifting his dog into the back of his SUV because she’s too old to jump in by herself. That’s what I have to do. But knowing Barry, he’d have one of the Secret Service guys do it for him or have the White House carpenter build a ramp. It is nice to be King!

You make a good point. Once Barry leaves the White House, either through loss or term limit, what’s going to happen to BO? This man is not an animal person. This dog is nothing more than a political prop. So what happens after? Will he keep him and let the household staff take care of BO or will he give him to a large contributing supporter as a ‘gift’? Bottom line, BO ain’t the family dog.

NO ONE should sit this election out or the American way of life is over. Obowma just passed a bill requiring the Catholic church to forego their teaching against abortion by forcing them to pay for Obowmacare abortions. So much for “seperation of church and state”?

Imagine four more years of Obowma steamrolling the constitution?
