Never mind running a country, he seems to have difficulty controlling his dog.

Obama has done a great job, given the completely obstructionist policies of the ferkin Republiclowns. C'mon, when Mitch McConnell says the number one priority is to unseat Obama, the Republiclowns really don't give a shit if the country goes into the toilet... so long as it costs Obama the election.

I believe this will seriously backfire on them. GoBama... 2012.

Ha I knew it! :D

Frankly I don't care... it all seems to be the same what ever the colour of the rosette.

Just, growing up in the country I have this cultural 'thing' about domestic pets, and how they should be allowed to fit with the family structure. You control your dog, not vice versa.

Clearly Obama has never owned a dog, or, he has but it has been allowed to run around all over him/them, or, he is ok 'acting cute', but looking something of a moron for the cameras.

Obama is going to go down as one of the biggest presidential one-term losers that there have been. Promising everything to everyone was always doomed to disappoint them all.

Was dog-walking one of his election promises? Do Americans now elect based on their leader's ability hold a leash?!

Crazy yanks...

It seems that on such things as minor as that, doth a reputation depend.

If you're familiar with UK politicians, think of 'that' pic of David Milliband and the banana (or indeed William Hague and that baseball hat).

Would I want to be led by this man? Yes. Which is exactly why I voted for him.

Critiques on his dog walking/training abilities is a clear sign of public scrutiny run amok.

You've got a point. He should have hired another Czar to do it. That what he always does when he doesn't know something. Why does not being able to train a pup not surprise me? Biggest problem the US has is not Obama, but the fact there there isn't anybody credible, on either side of the aisle, to replace him. So, we have total incompetence on Capitol Hill or both sides of the aisle. 2012? Dog help us.

Is this a faintly moderate remark? Alright, who are you and what did you do to SMS?

I'd have thought that if he is happy to have such pictures taken and released in the hope of garnering PR from it, that he has opened himself to the observation that you don't walk a boisterous puppy on a leash as long as that, unless you want to look a fool.

Since the First Amendment of the Constitution guarantees freedom of the press, than his 'happiness' at such a photo is irrelevant. And thank God for it ~ he's the President of the United States, not North Korea.

From a PR standpoint, I'm sure the fact that he has a dog far outweighs a few photos of a puppy acting like a puppy. I would certainly hope any President has more important things on his mind than the length of a leash in relation to his dog's age at any given time.

Yes, I believe it is. Whether it is carried out 100% of the time is another matter all together.

I hadn't realised the Constitution is a kinda part-time thing.

And I hadn't realized you'd have trouble with simple declarative sentences. Badum Toosh!

If you ever want to have a meaningful discussion on the perceptions of the Presidency, perhaps you'll elevate this thread out of the Jokes section. In the meantime, I'll leave the debate on whether presidents should wear flip-flops and other grave matters right here where it belongs.
