Bo, Bo, Bo! Adorable White House
dog steals the spotlight from Michelle
Obama when he jumps on her lap as
she reads ´Twas The Night Before
Christmas´ to sick children in hospital

Daily Mail [UK], by Meghan Keneally

Michelle Obama is typically the star of the show when she attends a charity event. That wasn´t the case when she recently read Twas The Night Before Christmas at a Washington area children´s hospital. As she sat down on stage to begin reading the classic tale to the tiny tots, Bo the First Dog jumped right up on his mother´s lap. He seemed quite comfy as well, since he didn´t move from the position throughout the seven minute session.[Snip] That was no matter for Michelle, however, as she gamefully played along and even jokingly held the book out so that

Comments:
Bo was trained to do that--staged. Where´s M´s usual surliness? Botoxed out? Yes, it´s the Christmas season; yes, I´m jaded and cynical; no, I don´t have any evidence--do I need it this time?

May be botoxed, but most unattractive. You´d think her many makeup people could do a little better than that.

All animals entering a hospital are supposed to be certified "service" dogs. And certified service dogs do NOT jump on people.

Absolutely no limit to the special privilege that the obama´s take.

One does wonder if it was staged, but from what else we´ve seen of Bo, he is probably untrained. (The Obamas are notorious rule-breakers.)

"Adorable W.H. dog"? Hardly. BTW, we´ll give them a "break" when they give US, a break on what it is costing US for THEIR many excellent adventures back and forth to whatever parts unknown they choose. Now the "family" and their clown-posse have to fly back to D.C. on separate jets, AGAIN at OUR expense, so that obama can have another photo-op to beat up on John Boehner and Republicans. A "break"? They don´t need one.

The Mail is hammering away on this cutesy story. Second article I´ve seen this morning.

The video shows that she plops down in the chair and promptly beckons to Bo to come into her lap, where she wrestles a bit to get him positioned just right. And she continues to stroke him.

She was not surprised. More Mail drama where there is none.

Re #5, the hospitals in our area allow certain dogs to be brought in to soothe and comfort patients. Especially in the rehab units. (They would not be in the CCU or other acute care areas.) None of these dogs is a certified service dog. Just mannerly pets.

If you watch the video, it is actually the little boy on the left who steals the spotlight. He keeps waving at someone off stage--his parents, presumably--and at the audience and reprimands Michelle when she isn´t letting the dog see the book (and can´t "read" it). He is more interested in the dog than the story or the First Lady.

Global Warming Will Not Cost the Earth,
Leaked IPCC Report Admits
Breitbart London [UK], by James Delingpole    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 3/26/2014 2:11:30 PM     Post Reply
The economic costs of ´global warming´ have been grossly overestimated, a leaked report--shortly to be published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)--has admitted. [Snip] This admission by the IPCC will come as a huge blow to those alarmists--notably the Stern Review´s author but also including everyone from the Prince of Wales to Al Gore--who argue that costly intervention now is our only hope if we are to stave off the potentially disastrous effects of climate change. Sir Nicholas (now Lord) Stern was commissioned by Tony Blair´s Labour government to analyse the economic impacts of climate

Kremlinology is the famously impossible art of trying to gaze inside the minds of Russia´s leaders, whose actions were described by Winston Churchill as "a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma". Like the proverbial Russian doll, Moscow can present an endless number of outer faces to the wider world, and few ever reach the one that tells the inner truth. [Snip] Yet for those trying to work out why he has chosen to invade Crimea--and where he might go next--there is, these days, the chance to do some reasonably educated guesswork. All one needs to do is to check out his favourite authors, as did PHD student Maria Snegovaya in this

Britain has a "duty" to embrace fracking in the wake of the Ukraine crisis, David Cameron has said, as he accused opponents of shale gas exploration of not "understanding" the issue properly. The Prime Minister said that Vladimir Putin´s annexation of Crimea should be a "wake up call" and that European countries must become less reliant on Russian gas. There is growing concern that European leaders are unable to put sufficient pressure on Mr Putin over the crisis in Ukraine because they are so dependent on Russia for energy supplies. Asked whether it is now "our duty to ensure that we are

Holland’s Queen Maxima proved to be a distraction for David Cameron, Barack Obama and Francois Hollande at the Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague. The 40-year-old appeared to court more attention than her husband King Willem-Alexander last night at the Royal Palace Huis ten Bosch. The monarchs greeted their international guests before the official dinner. As Britain´s Prime Minster David Cameron shook the King´s hand he was making eye contact with the blonde-haired queen. Similarly French President Francois Hollande directed his gaze at the mother-of-three as he greeted her husband. US President Obama appeared to share a

Three U.S. Secret Service agents tasked with protecting President Barack Obama on his trip to the G7 summit in the Netherlands were sent home and suspended after a night of drinking, it was revealed today. The Washington Post broke the news Tuesday, reporting that one of the agents in question was found passed out in a hotel hallway Sunday morning.

If you still need to buy health insurance, the clock is ticking. Most residents shouldn´t worry about Obamacare´s March 31 deadline because they´re already insured, many of them through their employer, or by Medicare or Medicaid, but those who aren´t could face a fine for failing to enroll in a plan by Monday. This penalty, officially called the "individual shared responsibility payment," is $95 per adult and $47.50 per child, or 1 percent of your household´s annual income. Many consumers don´t realize that the penalty they will owe is whichever of those two amounts is greater, said Colin Smoak, an

Landscapes by JMW Turner are some of the most beautiful and instantly recognisable works by a British artist. And now scientists have found that famous paintings of sunsets can help them study previous levels of pollution in the Earth’s atmosphere. Turner’s work in particular reveals that in the early 19th century, ash and gas released during a major volcanic eruption lingered in the sky and made sunsets appear redder. According to a study published in the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, painters in Europe could see the colours of the sky changing after the Tambora volcano in Indonesia erupted in 1815.

The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments Tuesday in the case of a hobby-supply store whose owners say the Affordable Care Act is forcing them to act in contradiction with their Christian faith. Hobby Lobby, a chain of 600 craft stores with more than 13,000 employees, took the Obama administration to court because it could face fines of $1.3 million per day--almost $475 million per year--if it fails to offer its workers a health insurance plan that includes a list of 18 contraceptives that the federal government deems ´essential.´ [Snip] But the federal government contended Tuesday that those products aren´t

Just as Franklin Roosevelt promised never to send “American boys” to fight in Europe, so Barack Obama vowed that US military strength would henceforth “pivot” towards Asia. Once again, a European crisis has brought the ambitions of a second-term US president back to earth.

For anyone who still takes the security of the West seriously – and I fear I am in a distinct minority – the manner in which Russian President Vladimir Putin has effortlessly achieved his audacious land grab in the Crimea should serve as a dramatic wake-up call for Nato. And yet, to judge by the mood music coming from the meeting of Western leaders in The Hague this week, the likelihood of Nato doing anything to dissuade Moscow´s macho man from undertaking any further acts of military adventurism in central Europe or the Baltic states does not seem at all

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time.

Kevin Brady that there would be no such extensions. ´Are you going to delay the open enrollment beyond March 31?´ Brady asked. ´No, sir,´ she replied.

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, published the announcement on Monday, after teasing the news on Twitter by announcing that “something wonderful is about to happen.” The folks at Business Insider are clearly aware of the built-in entertainment value of hiring the scandalized politician, who is best known for sending an explicit photo of himself to an online mistress on Twitter -- and initially denying the photo was his.
