    Default Did I Hear Obama Right?

    I was watching MSNBC and just a couple minutes ago Obama was talking about the new dog they will eventually get.

    He said that one of the girls was allergic so it would have to be a hypoallergenic puppy so it would probably not come from the shelter since most of them were like him.

    Did he just on National tv call himself a mutt.

    I will post a link as soon as I find it.

    Yes, he did. He said "most of them (dogs from the shelter) are mutts like me", with a smile and a wink.

    Which raises a point I have been contemplating for some time: everyone, it seems ... and this is not directed at anyone, it includes folks of all persuasions as well as the media ... everyone refers to him as a "black". First black president, breakthrough for blacks, etc.

    This guy is just as much white as he is black!

    What is the rule for being white?? 100%? 75%?? Just wonderin'.

    I am curious, is there any such thing as a hypoallergenic dog? I don't believe it.

    I don't have any facts, but it is widely understood that some breeds, poodles among them, cause less problems for people with allergies.

    He also said the kids wanted a "goldendoodle". Gawd, I hope that doesn't happen. This board will go crazy!!!

    I would hazard to guess at least 90% of Americans are mutts.
