Important White House news: a new puppy
Yeah, the Egyptians hate us as that section of the Muslim world joins its brethren imploding; yeah, unemployment is too high as another summer of recovery remains unrecovered; yeah, the (Un)Affordable Health Care Act ie, Obamacare, is becoming more unaffordable and illogical and unilaterally delayed but all this pales before the really important good news
from the White House.
Meet Sunny: The Obamas' New Puppy
Sunny was born in Michigan in June 2012, and arrived at the White House today. Just like Bo, she's a Portuguese Water Dog, which works great for the Obamas because of allergies in their family.
Sunny is the perfect little sister for Bo - full of energy and very affectionate - and the First Family picked her name because it fit her cheerful personality.
[T]he First Lady told reporters that she hosted a "doggie play date" because "Bo doesn't have enough dog interaction." So now, in addition to helping with those official duties, Bo takes on the important role of big brother! (snip)
In honor of Sunny, the Obamas are making a donation to the Washington Humane Society.
(Yeah, I know--me too!)

President Obama: 'A Personal Mission'
Today, President Obama sent the message below to the White House email list to explain why he'll be on the road this week talking about his plan to make college more affordable.
That's why, as President, I've made it a personal mission to make higher education more affordable -- and why I'm going to be visiting school campuses later this week.
The facts are clear. Over the past three decades, the average tuition at a public four-year college has more than tripled. At the same time, many state governments are actually reducing their support for education, and many middle-class students are getting stuck with the tab.
That's why, starting Thursday, I will be embarking on a bus tour to offer my plan to make college more affordable, tackle rising costs, and improve value for students and their families. My plan includes real reforms that would bring lasting change. They won't all be popular with everyone --including some who've made higher education their business -- but it's past time that more of our colleges work better for the students they exist to serve.
Hmm, I wonder who will be "stuck with the tab" under ObamaEdu? Probably the same ones who are stuck with losing their more or less affordable health care because they don't have that exemption pull that certain elites have thanks to President Barack Obama's (D) other personal mission; the same ones who have seen college costs rise because of government interference but are unable to find a decent job to pay off their debts thanks to President Barack Obama's (D) other personal mission.
President Obama, please stay home and play with Bo and Sunny. They need you; college students, and their parents, don't.
