Dog Politics: President Obama and Bo

It was bound to happen.

Much has been made of Mitt Romney's family trip years ago - you know, the one when he transported Seamus, the family dog, in a pet carrier on top of his station wagon. 

Newt Gingrich has made a few jabs at Romney and set up a Pets for Gingrich web site.

Now we have a tweeted photo of our president, Barack Obama and First Dog, Bo, traveling in the backseat of a vehicle.  The caption:  "How loving owners transport their dogs."

Can it be a coincidence that the same day as the tweet, the Obama campaign launch a Facebook page called "Pet Lovers for Obama."  The page features Bo saying "I bark for Barack" and invites supporters to submit photos of their pets in Obama 2012 gear.


  1. Coincidence or not Bo is darn cute!

  2. I like that Bo has such a patriotic collar!

  3. In Politics- all is orchestrated. Bo is quite the DOG, though.


Go ahead... bark at us!
