    Fail.

    It is a commentary, opinion piece, completely unsourced and offers no more information than the rhetorical question posed within the article, but never answered... because the damned article had nothing to do with dog handlers in the first place.

    Does Obama Pay Dog Trainer $102,000 at Tax Payer Expense? - wafflesatnoon.com

    The only trainer Bo had was Sylvia-Stasiewicz, who initially had no idea the puppy she trained was destined for the White House. She passed away in 2011. Early in 2009, White House horticulturist was spotted walking the dog, and immediately the Obama's got flack that a White House employee was *gasp!* seen walking the dog.

    This rumor started via a chain email comparing Obama's "$102,000 dog trainer" to a Navy Seal's salary. No source was included. A book on Amazon stated that this "$102,000 dog trainer was always on call, and always flew alone with the dog." No sources were cited, and later Amazon had to clarify that the dog did not fly alone, but flew in a jet with other aides and staff when the presidential party took two small jets rather than Air Force One.

    The person identified in that 2010 book was Reggie Love, personal aide to Obama from 2009 to 2011. Reggie Love's salary was $102,000 per year.

    And here we are three years later with completely uninformed people yelling, "Oh yeah? What about the $102,000 dog handler taxpayers have to pay for???"

    Get a ****ing grip, people, and get a ****ing clue before regurgitating utterly bogus, unsubstantiated garbage. There is quite enough legitimate complaints to throw at Obama to waste time and brain cells on this ridiculous poppycock.
    Quite right. There is plenty of substantiated expenses regarding this President, including the largest debt in world history, that a piddling $102,000 doesn't make much difference.

    About Reggie Love.

    "Love applied for an internship on Capitol Hill in 2006. He was interviewed by Robert Gibbs, Obama’s communications director, for a position in Obama's Senate office.[3] He was hired with the title "deputy political director".[5] He became Obama's personal assistant in 2007, during the 2008 presidential race.

    As Obama's aide, his job was to anticipate any and all of Obama's needs.[3][5][10] In reference to the myriad support duties Love performs, President Obama has referred to Love as his "iReggie", a play on Apple's iPad (“I have an iReggie, who has my books, my newspapers, my music all in one place.”).[11] Love and Obama played basketball every day there was a primary during the 2008 presidential election,[3] and they played regularly in the ensuing years, always on the same side.[12] Obama has described Love as like his "little brother."

    You asked for the source, I gave it, and I said I didn't know who his sources were. What more can you expect?

    The last, as written, was only used as a comparison of expenses for international leaders. Did you take the time to read it? You might find it interesting.

    In a follow up I gave some information on Reggie Love his "dog walker" who was paid the $102,000 annually, but did much more than just walk the dog.

    I've clearly investigated this charge more than you and know it to be exaggerated.

    Well, if you're just going to dismiss everything I say, then I really don't see the point of PMing you, let alone respond to you at all.

    One more time....


    "...The president spoke at the Symbion Power Plant at Ubungo, was had been idle until the Tanzanian government used U.S. help to revamp it. "This is just the beginning. We look forward to even more companies joining this effort," he said. Such partnerships create more jobs and exports in the United States, he said.....read..."
    Obama concludes Africa trip - CNN.com

    Symbion is a U.S. company with offices and subsidiaries in Washington, D.C.; Delaware, USA; Limassol, Cyprus; Cape Town, South Africa; Dubai, U.A.E.; Baghdad, Iraq; Port-au-Prince, Haiti; Dar es Salaam and Morogoro, Tanzania.
    Symbion Power

    A lot of American companies would love to do business in Africa...if only it had electricity.


    The only thing Africa has that America needs is oil and isn't Obama suppose to make America independent from oil imports?
    Then we better start thinking about investing in sustainable energy if you want that to happen....

    Overview: renewable energy initiatives under Obama administration | Sustainability | Thomson Reuters


    If Obama really wanted to accomplish something good in Africa, he would have droaned that Nigerian General who keeps e-mailing me for the past sixteen years.
    How about you take some personal responsibility and stop giving money to the Nigerian General emails? Did you ever think of that?

    So Reggie Love is Obama's Gopher.

    I read your links... both when I did my research and when you posted them after I'd already read them. People can draw their own conclusion, but what I posted was a chronological investigation of the rumors as they emerged and evolved over the years. People are still squawking about something that has not a single, solitary shred of evidence as if it is fact, when in reality it's fun to regurgitate garbage, as long as the garbage casts a partisan stink.

    Stop taking the easy way out. Criticize Obama for legitimate complaints, and back them up with legitimate sources. This pap wastes everyone's time.

    Most politicians are rich. So if you hate politicians then you hate rich people, too.
