(by Dave Gibson, EXAMINER.COM) -- In August the Obama's dog, Bo, was flown to Martha's Vineyard in a U.S. Marine MV-22 Osprey, taking a separate flight from the rest of the First Family.
The Obama's have begun, yet another lavish vacation, at the expense of the American taxpayers.
Though the outrage over the Obama's extravagant lifestyle during such stark economic times may reach a fever pitch at the news of the 'First Dog' being given his own flight, it is not the first time this has happened.
In July 2010, Maine's Morning Sentinel reported:
Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president’s personal aide Reggie Love, who chatted with Baldacci.
You see, a big part of Obama's success is the incredibly short memory of the American people.
While most will see these separate flights as yet another example of the disdain the Obamas have for the taxpayer, there may well be a more practical reason why Bo flies on his own.
Islam teaches that dogs are "unclean beasts" and Muslims are forbidden from traveling with them.
Abu Huraira, who traveled extensively with the Muslim prophet Muhammad, wrote thousands of Hadiths, one of which was: "Angels do not accompany the travelers who have with them a dog and a bell."
Of course, President Obama has claimed publicly that he is a Christian, but both his father and his step-father were practicing Muslims, and he attended a Muslim school while being raised in Indonesia.
It is rather absurd to believe that this, or any other man could simply deny the religion of his youth.
So, when you become infuriated with Obama’s insensitivity to the families of those killed by Muslim terrorists in the Fort Hood massacre and in the Benghazi attack, or over the fact that he is now arming those who deny Israel's right to exist, or because he may have sent one of those involved in the Boston Marathon bombing terror cell back to his powerful Saudi-terrorist family...don't forget to place that blame where it really belongs…with those who laughably call themselves "Democrats," who voted for this international man of mystery.
