Had to be done…
Remember this November… Obama expended more energy on behalf of Michael Vick than on Vick’s 100+ victims of dog-fighting and drowning.
More from the “more equal than others” presidency. If Vick was a third string bench-warming non-minority, do you think for a moment that Obama would have argued for leniency from the NFL?
According to a CBS News report, Eagles owner Lurie said Mr. Obama was “passionate about it,” adding that the president said “it’s never a level playing field for prisoners when they get out of jail. And he was happy that we did something on such a national stage that showed our faith in giving someone a second chance after such a major downfall.”
If dogs could talk, what would Bo say?

- Commentary Magazine suggests that Obama may have been crassly pandering to the Pennsylvania electorate.: Why Did Barack Obama Endorse Dog-Killing QB?
Regarding the latter, had this been perpetrated in a deep red state like Texas, no doubt that Obama would have politically leveraged this to the hilt.
Perhaps these guys should reconsider their assessment.
