a president’s work is never done

Oval: President Obama spoke at a Democratic fundraising dinner last night in Rhode Island, but skipped the meal to get back to family life at the White House — including some very personal business. “I’ve got to get home because Michelle is on the road,” Obama explained. “So I’ve got to be home to tuck in the girls and walk the dog.” “And,”‘ he added, “scoop the poop.”

    He’s my kind of man – taking care of family business.

    I thought Malia and Sasha were supposed to be walking the dog and scooping poop. It is their dog isn’t it?

      But the President has plenty of free time, so I’m sure he doesn’t mind. 😉

      I rarely scooped my dog’s poop when I was a kid, even though I had campaigned (eg threatened to run away) for his arrival. It was usually my poor mother or father who got the job. Blush. If I was them I’d have made me sleep in a kennel as punishment. Apparently the President takes Bo for a late night walk, presumably that’s when the poop-scooping takes place. But if I was him I’d get the Secret Service to do it, even though it’s not quite in their job description. 🙂
