    Adopting a dog makes you a good President? I will stick with how he governs, not how he manages his public image.

    You know, I look at that image, and my first thought is in regard to BO's talent at posturing. But on further thought, I think it has a deeper message.

    He is posed in front of Lincoln, whose greatness is basically centered around his responsibilities in ending slavery.

    So is there a message? The Obama family opt for rescuing a shelter animal for their family pet. It's no doubt a fabulous, sincere thing to do. But the posturing in front of Lincoln - is it yet another "American-Idolesque" technique that goes to the excess? Is he really utilizing comparing Lincoln and freeing the slaves with him freeing a dog?

    To me, in a different setting, it would be simply an "awwww... how sweet!" moment.

    I would rather he adopted a child. he doesnt have any problem with all the abortions out there, he is even ok with refusing them a doctor after they are already born alive if they were previously targeted for abortion.

    but he is getting praise because he saved a dog from the pound?

    this world is so backwards that I sometimes just shake my head!
