Michelle Obama Blows It: Adopts a Dog from a Puppy Mill
Michelle Obama and The Fresh President have ditched another pledge and are getting a dog from a puppy mill.
The dog’s original owner returned the Portuguese Water Dog to the kennel where it was bred.
The Obamas decided that keeping Ted Kennedy happy was more important than keeping their pledge of adopting a shelter dog.
The puppy mill where this dog came from is where Kennedy buys his dogs.
This really pisses me off. This was so simple. Four million dogs will be killed this year because they don’t have a home. The Obama’s had set expectations that they would set a great example.
Instead, they buckled to pressure from Uncle Teddy and are accepting a gift dog from a puppy mill.
Obama has taken Chicago politics right with him to the White House: tell the public what they want to hear, then do whatever.
I’m surprised that Michelle didn’t live up to her promise. I bet that those vegetables from the garden in the back yard of the White House never see the White House kitchen.
Forget all the tough decisions, this was an easy one, and President and Michelle Obama blew it.
They say they will change the name of the dog from Charlie, so at least the website that grabbed the domain will have a short life.
I think you’re mistaken. Unwanted dogs from puppy mills need homes too. Just last year, over 700 dogs were found at a local puppy mill.
We took one in and she’s slowly come around to life with a caring family. This dog needed a home after the puppy mill was raided; I really don’t see how it’s any different from adopting any other abandoned dog. The Obamas’ dog was unable to be cared for by the family that adopted it originally.
Should these dogs simply go without homes? I don’t think that would discourage any puppy millers.
@bv: Good for you for helping a dog have a happy life.
My point was: Michelle Obama and The Fresh President PROMISED to get a shelter dog… “a mutt like me” he said.
Instead they broke their promise and got a pure-bred breeder/puppy mill dog.
A pure bred like Bo would not have ended up homeless and it’s ridiculous to say otherwise.
The Obama’s made a political move to make Nearly-dead Ted happier.
You can not adopt a gift…you are given a gift and receive a gift.
Since when was it wrong to make any one who is terminally ill happy? Especially a Kennedy who backed and supported you when you ran for President of the U.S.
That would have been a huge slap in the face. Not a mistake or an error I would want to make.
If you want to get on someones’ deserving butt, get on Rush Limbaugh, Marc Dreier, Dick or Liz Chaney’s…

@Sharon/The Baby Boomer Queen: the point is: the Obamas said they would adopt a shelter dog.
I will “Shorter” this post:
Barack Obama’s book, “The Audacity of Hope,” contains a appealing title. It has a taste of bravery mixed with full confidence. You’ll find nothing Pollyanna regarding this. I might not support almost everything he says, but he’s our president, and then for me, he creates trust. That may do more for a nation than any number of backroom deals. Hope gives us energy, and energy sustains us through trying times. Boy, we’ve had them. I’m from West Texas, and I did not vote for Bush. When McCain ran against Obama, I was a citizen of Arizona, but I gave audacious hope a chance. The fight for progress and laying the foundations of prosperity isn’t over. I have seen the quips of those who don’t believe Obama can make it. But step back a second. Would anyone have most of us fail simply to tarnish the star of an incumbent for whom they did not vote? Trying to keep our priorities straight, let’s work together with this president and build our future.
Hey, I found your blog while searching thru bing. I’m about to bookmark it now
just saw your post on folkd. decided to drop by and leave a comment.
Well spoken. I have to research more on this as it is really vital info. Good work. Regularly I do not make comments on blogs, but I have to mention that this post really forced me to do so. Really fantastic post. Really great and I will be coming back for more information at your site and revisit it! Thank you.
Barack Obama has been a director that will go down in history for more than just becoming the 1st African United states president. Because of the global financial trouble there were some really hard situations of late for People in the usa and for the whole globe and Obama has needed to cope with the correct way to handle this and lots of various other challenges. He has his practitioners as well as critics however he has unquestionably made a major contribution to Usa.
I’m hoping you don’t see this as offensive but this sounds like the same ol’ Obama rhetoric.Obama is playing the same game all politicians play… he’s no different then the rest of them if you ask me.
