Obama notes buying a second dog as an accomplishment for 2013


The end of the year is not only a time to resolve to do better in the coming year, but also to reflect on the past year’s accomplishments. President Obama is no different. And included in his list of accomplishments for 2013 is that he bought a second dog, Sunny.

“Over the past few years, a lot has changed — for instance, we’ve doubled the number of dogs in the White House,” he wrote in a fundraising email on Tuesday, according to the Washington Examiner. “I can also count a few more gray hairs.”

Gee, I saved up and bought a new MacBook this year, but I’d never thought of that as an accomplishment. I’m going to have to re-think this whole buying-accomplishment thing. Would buying a new bottle of scotch count as an accomplishment, I wonder?

The president also listed more traditional accomplishments, but he may have been stretching the truth just a tad on those. They include “economic progress, the end of the war in Iraq, the effects of Obamacare and reforming college loans,” the Examiner reported.

On second thought, he may have stretched the truth on those items more than just a tad.

“I can’t wait to see what we’re going to do together in the years to come,” Obama added. Gee, is that a hint that another dog is on the horizon?

“So before the midnight deadline, chip in $10 or more, and let’s go make sure next year is just as productive as the past five have been.”

You knew that one was coming, didn’t you?
