NYC Letter: Like A Dog. A Dog!
Day 671 of CHOPE
The Slurpee meme died when Mr. Obama became the unintentional butt of his own joke. Plan B: The dog meme.
And over the last two years, thatís meant taking on some powerful interests -- some powerful interests who had been dominating the agenda in Washington for a very long time. And theyíre not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. (Applause.) Thatís not in my prepared remarks, itís just -- but itís true.

MILWAUKEE September 6, 2010 (White House)
Firming up the anacoluthon, we prefer this reading: "It's just. [Pause.] But it's true." [We reflect.] It is. And it is.
And so I just want to give you a sense of -- oh, I'm sorry, I didnít know you were here -- a guy who has his own tough job -- Chris Van Hollen, the head of the DCCC, whoís doing great work each and every day. (Applause.) Almost missed Chris. Chris is working like a dog, so I want to make sure everybody knows what wonderful work heís doing.
Mr. Van Hollen shaped the brilliant idea of Democrats running against the politically absent Mr. Bush. He tirelessly reassured skittish liberals that all the polls, all the pundits, and the voters themselves would be proved wrong -- Democrats would retain their House majority. Up to the very end. To the bitter end. [Pause.] As of this writing the Democrats have lost 61 House seats, with 5 races still undecided. In the 112th Congress the Republicans will be the majority party. Wonderful work, Chris. [Hot mike aside.] Dog!
So thank you so much to the Chaces. Thank you. Iíve got to get home because Michelle is on the road. So Iíve got to be home to tuck in the girls and walk the dog. (Laughter.) And scoop the poop. (Laughter.) So I apologize that I canít stay for dinner. But it looks simply spectacular. And, again, I thank you all for being here tonight. All right? (Applause.)

Dog shit. Nice preprandial touch, Mr. O.
"Gotta run. Can I get a doggy bag for that lobster risotto? Hey! Thanks for your money. [Hot mic aside.] Chumps."
President Obama over in Portugal last week pointed out to his hosts that his dog, Bo, is a Portuguese Water Dog. Yeah, thatís a good way to make friends: 'Hey, you know whoís just like you people?
