    So, maybe they really didn't deserve it after all....

    If Michelle can't keep up with the doggy duty, maybe Obama will create another government job.

    Number 1: This is a "homeland issue" to you?

    Number 2: She said that the kids would HELP take care of the dog, not that they would do all of the dog-care.

    Any parent who allows their child to have a dog realizes that the parent at times is going to have to step in and help.

    Now THIS is a big issue.


    Forget the 3 trillion in overspending.



    The Obama daughters might be just like YOUR kids. Fat, lazy, and on the video games all afternoon.

    Oh, the horror! :eek:

    No, the novelty of a dog is wearing off and Sasha and Malia are being typical kids.

    1. It's a "teaching responsibility" issue to me. Do you recall Pres. Obama's Father's Day speech last year? Really not much difference as I see it. If the children supposedly "earned" the dog (his words), that (presumably) means they displayed that they understood the responsibility that comes with pet ownership.

    2.) Quote: First lady says she’s up early to walk Bo ‘even though kids are supposed to’. In other words, Mom is DOING what the children are supposed to be HELPING with.

    Any parent who has a child shouldn't promise/give things that they aren't ready for.... I could have promised/given my newly licensed teen a Ferrari, but I don't believe it would have been a good idea.... The dog, OTOH, is a SHARED responsibility.
