Dogs??? Seriously, Dogs???????

With all of the problems this nation is facing, dogs are at the top of the political foray for the presidency.

So, let’s take a good look at the importance of famous presidential dogs:

Teddy Roosevelt’s Bull Terrier, Pete, was so notorious for biting that he was banished from the White House/

FDR’s Scottish Terrier, Fala, was present at many of the most important meeting between international leaders that he probably was able to ignore the extra-maritals committed by #32.

JFK’s Mutt, Pashinka, was the offspring of Soviet Space dog Strelka (obviously a commie plant) survived the Cuban Missile Crisis AND Marilyn Monroe.

LBJ liked to lift his Beagles up by their ears. Surely fun for Him and Her!

Gerald Ford’s Golden Retriever, Liberty, who had a litter of pups, had to train them to be very wary around tumble prone #38.

Reagan’s Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was the first to hold the title of “First Dog.”

Bush, the Elder’s Springer Spaniel, Millie, who liked to snap at the press – I REALLY LIKED THIS DOG.

Slick Willie’s Chocolate Lab, Buddy, who was obviously oblivious enough that he couldn’t keep #42’s trousers zipped.

W’s Scottish Terrier, Barney, who strode proudly along side #43 after 9/11.

And Bo, Barack Obama’s gift to his daughters for their patience and good behavior during his 2008 campaign.

These are only a few but there are goodies and baddies among them all. But now dogs are the focus of the actual campaign. Anyone else old enough to remember who Checkers was?

Hey, we know it’s a dog eat dog world out there so if dogs are now the focus of the campaign… and if it really is dog eat dog… at least Romney can say he didn’t!
