Did Bo Return From Hawaii for Obama’s Photo Op?

by Keith Koffler on December 22, 2011, 11:53 am

Updated 1:43 pm ET

Bo Obama was supposed to be in Hawaii. Instead, he showed up at President Obama’s side Wednesday shopping for treats at PetSmart

According to Michelle Obama’s press office, the first dog was planning to go to Hawaii with the first lady and the Obama daughters. The Chicago Sun-Times reported that he in fact had gone there. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser quoted an eyewitness who said he had seen the Portuguese Water Dog having his walk.

So what is Bo doing back in Washington shopping at PetSmart?

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 to 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.

The Pets Mart dog sure doesn’t look like the same dog.

Drudge has two stories running about the dog. One link shows a dog with one white and one black paw. The other link shows the dog having two white paws.

It would be no big deal to have to “alike” dogs. In fact, dogs like other dogs for company.

It would be no big deal to have “alike” dogs if they showed up together before this event. Having this simultaneous appearance of the dog and his double makes one wonder if they rented a Washington, D.C., “Bo” to have a photo op with BO.

And that, if it is true, is very odd behavior.

Corey: You don’t see that inconvenient little fact anywhere, do you? To pay for this 2-month temp tax holiday (that robs the coffers of SS), ALL homeowners will get a new mortgage tax. I’ll bet that’s not a 2-month temp tax. Somewhere I saw it was “$40 per payday for those making ~50K”. “Per payday?” Those that don’t bother with research might imply it meant a weekly paycheck or $40X4 = $160/month. Actually, from my understanding, it’s 2% of your income. So if you make $50K/yr. your ‘savings’ would be $19.23/week. Obama doesn’t bother to explain that the savings he’s talking about based on a $50K salary, would be a biweekly paycheck. This community organizer ‘misleads’ at best.

Shows you can’t do math and just parrot what the Lame Stream Media print. First, it is not on ALL middle class homeowners. If you don’t purchase or refinance your home there is no fee. Second, the percentage is 1/10 of 1%. On a $200,000 home that works out to $200 over the life of the loan. If you finance the home for 30 years you would divide $200 by 360 or about 55 cents per month plus interest. What the reporter did was divide the $200 fee by 12 to come up with the $17 per month figure.

You couldn’t be more wrong. The g-fee is not an origination fee….it is tacked onto the interest rate. The first year, the fee is about 200, You keep paying that .1 percent fee until the loan is paid.

And why was there a housing bubble? That is really what caused the whole collapse after all.
And what caused that? how about wonderful congress men Dodd and Franks in the 90s, followed up by the dem congress in 2006 passing further regulations to back so they had to give out high risk loans.
Send blame to where its due. The economic shit hole we’re in now is due to dem congressmen, not bush.

Susan December 22, 2011 at 3:24 pm

You, my friend, are the one trying to rewrite history. Spending bills are passed by Congress, not by the Executive branch. Democrats had full control of Congress the last two years of Bush’s presidency (January 2007-December 2008). The Democrats had full control of Congress in Obama’s first two years in office, and not one single bill was passed to fix the economy during that time. The Republicans regained control of the House in January 2011; however, the Democrats still control the Senate.

The housing market was doomed once the Community Reinvestment Act was kicked into gear by one William Jefferson Clinton. Your hero, the omnipotent Obama, was a lawyer for ACORN in 1994 when he sued Citibank to force the bank into making home loans to people who could never repay them.

Maybe if you could clear the BDS cloud from your eyes and do a little research you would learn the truth.

Banks were told they MUST make these loans or else they would never be able to open another branch again! The final government tally for the Iraq war (that was voted favorably on by the House and Senate) was $800 Billion, just $13 Billion more than Obama’s Porkulus bill that accomplished NOTHING except lining the pockets of the unions and other “favored” recipients.

The “Mission Accomplished” banner was hung on the aircraft carrier to signify that the crew on that boat had completed their 10-month deployment. It was a party for them. Bush’s mistake was trying to make it a party for him. But, to be fair, liberals have misused that banner for 8 years.

Bush said he didn’t even realize it was there until he saw the pictures.

“In the Battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed.”And now our coalition is engaged in securing and reconstructing that country”
or later in the speech
“The Battle of Iraq is one victory in a war on terror that began on September the 11th, 2001, and still goes on.”
and later
“The liberation of Iraq is a crucial advance in the campaign against terror”
and later
“The war on terror is not over, yet it is not endless. We do not know the day of final victory, but we have seen the turning of the tide. No act of the terrorists will change our purpose, or weaken our resolve, or alter their fate. Their cause is lost. Free nations will press on to victory.”
and finally
“After service in the Afghan and Iraqi theaters of war — after 100,000 miles, on the longest carrier deployment in recent history — you are homeward bound. ”
So you they have accomplished their mission. Please get a clue and quit listenning to shills on the left

I’m not anti-military or anti-soldier. My uncle was an Admiral in the Navy, my grandfather was a Marine on Iwo Jima. It’s a noble service, a sacrifice that they made trusting their leadership to risk their lives for worthwhile reasons. Iraq was a farce from day one, our leadership today has failed our soldiers.

Bush chose to take us to Iraq under false pretenses. Bush is the one that wasted our soldier’s lives for no reason. Getting rid of Obama won’t change that, in fact every one of the GOP candidates (except Paul) would gladly march us off to more stupid, pointless wars that I would never be willing to die for.

The point of mentioning my family members is that I understand and respect the nature of military service. The fact that I haven’t served is due to my unwillingness to fight for these stupid causes, not because I’m unwilling to defend my country.

Funny thing is, Bush’s press secretary at the time acknowledges that the White House had the sign made because the Navy didn’t have the resources to do it. If these things are done “all the time”, I’d think they might actually have the ability to make their own signs.

Matt, your a delusional useless idiot.
Fals pretenses? Iraq had WMDs. Fact.
Iraq used WMDs. Fact.
Certain memebers of congress, Hillary Clinton included, saw every bit of information about Iraq that Bush did and they still backed him up about invading Iraq.

Now lets compare dems to republicans and getting us into war. Who dragged the US into Korea and Vietnam? Democrats. What about Mogadishu? Democrat. What about Libiya? Democrat.

In fact the only time in recent history when a republican has led us into war is in 1991 against Iraq to defend Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, and against Afghnistan and Iraq. And all of those causes have been worthwhile and at the time very popular.

Now whats this about the white house making the sign because the navy didnt have the resources? I know you made the part about the resources up yourself because I know that the navy could have done it, I’m in the military and I know this, also nowhere in the article you repeatedly quote does it say anything about navy resources.
What was said is that the sign was the navy’s idea, and then the white house made it and the navy put it up. Just because someone in the white house had the sign made does not even mean that Bush new about it anyway.

By the way, your boy bush hijacked their tradition with a circus stunt to look like a cowboy and declare victory in a war that wouldn’t end for 8 more years. Hussein hadn’t even been captured yet. He used our sailors as an expensive political stunt, and you defend him. Where is your respect for the military?

Political stunt?
Isnt it the media that chooses what gets emphasized and what doesnt in the media?
So if the media hadnt made such a huge deal about it, it wouldnt really have been a stunt. But because the media chose to blow it up, it all of a sudden it became a silly looking stunt that could then be used to throw at Bush in the future.

Actually, the weekend following the “Mission Accomplished” showed all the talk shows and approval ratings for President Bush go through the roof. He took training without the press knowing and was able to fly that plane onto an aircraft carrier. It wasn’t until the Tuesday after that the Dems decided to exploit it and turn it around.

While this is tragic, it does not mean that there is any major combat mission going on.

In 2003 after we had sucessfully defeated the Iraqi military, major combat operations had ended.
It wasnt until 2006 in falujah that major combat operations occured again.

I was in Iraq in 2009. I’m a marine machine gunner and did daily patrons in Ramadi. I had several buddies hit by IEDs and another shot in the head. And yet that was not major combat operations.
Just because casualties are happening does not imply that major combat operations are continuing.

We had 135,000 troops there until 2009. That is “major” in my book. Maybe we should ask the Iraqis how “major” it was for them having 100,000+ countrymen killed while we tried to “liberate” them even though they never wanted us there. It’s all b.s. semantics.

Matt-is-stupid December 22, 2011 at 2:16 pm

It was a mistake because people like you took it out of context, after the media took it out of context and spoon-fed it to you. Unfortunately for you, you regurgitate what you read and hear from liberal media outelts and blogs, rather than actually knowing what was going on.

And last I checked, the active military campaign was over by that point, and remaining forces were acting as pseudo-police and anti-insurgency. They were not an actively invading force as they were as they came across the desert in tanks, APCs, and humvees. Look up the word “insurgent” and you’ll see it means “a person acting against civil authority”, and in order to have insurgency, the US forces had to become the dominant power in Iraq first, and that had been accomplished by that point.

In summation, the banner was more about succeeding in occupying the country, not succeeding in that the war was over (since I think this will be more on your level, think about video games: once you beat a mission it says “mission accomlished”–it doesn’t say that when you beat the whole game). However, those banners are used on every ship that returns to port after being abroad in active duty for an extended period of time, particularly when their goal in their tour was accomplished (occupying Iraq).

Matt December 22, 2011 at 2:46 pm

Last time you checked? Apparently you haven’t checked in a while. Ask the guys who came home last weekend when the “active military campaign” ended.

Bush declared the “end of major combat operations”. That was clearly 110% false. Your attempts to spin it are laughable. Even more funny when you accuse me of relying on “liberal media outlets” to shape my views as you spout conservative backpedaling talking points to defend him.

-Bo unexepectedly got Rock Fever and was so dispondent he had to be taken home to DC, the urgency of which required that no expense be spared.
-The dog seen at Pet Smart was a trained canine actor who performed a cameo with the presumption that the lame stream media would never report the seeming contradiction of eyewitness report of Bo’s presence in Hawaii and the simultaneous appearnce of a dog appearing to be Bo taking the President of the United States out to do a little late season Christmas shopping for himself.

Well, here are the possibilities:
1) The witnesses who said they saw Bo in Hawaii just days ago were lying.

2) The Obamas own two identical Portuguese Water Dogs -maybe you think they had the family dog cloned or something?

3) They put the dog on a jet and flew him 4,770 miles from Hawaii to Washington, D.C.

Or 4) They quickly rounded up another PWD for the Photo-Op from the local rent-a-pooch center.

That’s already covered under possibility number 2. The trouble with that scenario is, unless the Kennedys did a doggy-two-fer, there are too many witnesses who know about the Obamas having two dogs; Bo and Bo’s double. If the dog at PetSmart had trouble answering to the name “Bo”, then that’s the doggy-double.

So, as someone else aksed earlier, given that the dog was seen in Hawaii, why is it now shopping with the President? What is your explanation?

There will be unrest like never seen in America. Because now Americans believe that good is bad and bad is good. Once this country goes even further to hell in a hand basket there will be a purging… When Americans can’t say “Merry Christmas” because good is bad and once they can’t store more than seven days worth of food because good is bad and once they can’t own a gun because good is bad….. There will be a purging of the bad by the good!!!!! So lets pull together and re-elect this person…. OBAMA2012!!!!! ;)

Well, the fact that President Obama signed an executive order to reduce travel expenses should be enough to have every personal travel expenditure reported on and linked to by every news source.

When Congress is voting to be able to keep The government running because they do not have enough money to operate should be WHAT enough for your SO WHAT.
