Bo, the Portuguese Water Dog called a press conference in the briefing room this morning to announce he "wanted to go outside", and that he was stepping down from his post as the nation's First dog.
He did not disclose his future plans, other than his immediate plans when he gave Biden the signal to grab the pooper scooper. While Bo wasn't very forthcoming as to the reasons for leaving, it is well documented that obama is a former dog eater which must add additional stress to a First Dog working for a Kenyan-born boss.
lead tambourinist in his son's boy band.
Remember, it was just this past March when the White House lost its openly gay pastry chef due to Michelle's "demonic" menu demands. With Bo's departure, one has to question whether Michelle's strict menu restrictions are palatable to even a dog.
Speculation has been heating as to who will replace him. When the president was asked directly if he had a replacement in mind for his favorite departing dog, Obama promised to find a suitable replacement at the shelter. When asked the same question about Jay Carney's replacement, Obama stated, "I thought that's who we were talking about."
It appears to be a mass exodus of fleeing rats from a sinking obama canoe. Some have even dared to think the unthinkable, that Obama himself may step down after the conclusion of his second term, though house money says he's not going anywhere.
One thing is for certain, this nation cannot go on for a prolonged period without a First Pet being named and filling this vacancy. In a recent poll question asking. "With Bo leaving the First Dog post, what breed would you like to see replace him?" The American public overwhelmingly selected "a rabid Grizzly" as their first "write in" choice.
For all obama has done for us, I say we surprise him with it.
