Posted on 07/17/2010 10:16:14 AM PDT by Mobile Vulgus
The Morning Sentinel, a small paper from the state of Maine, has a travelogue story of the Obama's vacation in and about North Carolina today. It has a very interesting little tidbit in it that should enrage every American. It is something that really shows Barack Obama's arrogance and his obviously assumed air of noblesse oblige.
Among the exciting details of the Obama's visit to Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor is this tidbit:
Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.As the rest of us toil on the unemployment line, as millions of Americans find their retirement accounts dwindling, their hours at work cut, and their pay scale trimmed, King Barack and Queen Michelle are flying their little doggie, Bo, on his own special jet airplane for his own little vacation adventure.
Well, it must be nice to be able to afford to fly your doggie about the country whenever you feel like it. It must be nice to hire people to act as your dog's escort. It must be comforting to know that you have the power to arrange such luxury for a dog...

BTW, what's this about reducing our dependence on foreign oil?
Can we save our fire for real targets? If you think about this for a second, you would realize that the dog came with the President’s advance team.
It wasn’t a jet just for his dog, the dog just happened to be on the jet that came first.
Naw! His behavior is quite simply, “bottom on dee top!” The same behavior was exhibited in Reconstruction I.
“Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president’s personal aide Reggie Love, who chatted with Baldacci.”
Just one aide and one dog, both of which could have flown on AF1 or taken a commercial flight in coach.
Don’t confuse me with the facts.
Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president’s personal aide Reggie Love, who chatted with Baldacci.
“We’re ready. We’re going to do it all,” Love said with a big smile.
Their dog has a carbon footprint bigger than all of my extended family combined.
Once again it is “Do as I say, not as I do.”
I wonder if the teleprompter was on board, or does it ride with BO on AF1?
Many people are giving up their dogs to shelters because they can no longer afford them. BO and the whole clan make me ill.
The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year, and we import more oil than ever before. The Federal government had 32 years to get it right, and it is an abysmal failure.
Whaaaaa? Kennedy used Portuguese water dog for guarding drowning victims of fat Teddy?
Abomination in English signifies that which is exceptionally loathsome, hateful, sinful, wicked, or vile.
Obama-nation - same thing!
Well duh. Obama having a dog is just taqqyia. Bo is a prop. Obama doesn’t want to be near the harram animal otherwise.

The separate jet transport infuriates me. Reggie and the dog (a new band name?) should have been with the Obamas, not preceding them with extra transportation.....
.....BUT I WANT TO KNOW...What are the restrictions regarding average citizens and THEIR pets at a National Park?
I'd bet Obama gets to take BO wherever he wants inside the park.
I'm sorry, Mr. headline writer Warner Todd Huston, Obama's dog getting its own plane is the exact opposite of Noblesse Oblige.
Noblesse Oblige translates to "Noble Obligation," which means that with station and noblitiy comes the obligation to also act responsibly.
well maybe big Dog Sh*t gets to step in Bo’s dog sh*t!
I don't know what this would have to do with 0bama though.
