Of all the embattled figures in Washington, we thought one was truly safe. His approval ratings remained high, and he seemed above the fray of Washington politics. However, in times such as these, not even Bo Obama can survive without a high-profile challenger from within his own party.

Meet Sunny, the pup who could unseat the vaunted incumbent:

Judging by Sunny’s early endorsers on Twitter, Bo may face an uphill battle to retain his seat … or rather his plush doggy bed.

Opponents wasted no time in deploying their snark against this new threat. One fictitious GOP source tells Twitchy, “Regardless of who wins this nomination, we’ll be waiting with a shock collar.”

Pup of the people?

Some in the media, normally favorable to the incumbent, remain skeptical of the upstart challenger.

This could be the race of the year, so be sure to stay with Twitchy for all the latest news on the Bo vs. Sunny drama!

    Looks like Bo’s SS nick will soon be changed to ‘jerky.’

    • CatHerder

      No worries, they’re filling his water bowl with marinade now.

      • Clete Torres

        Teriyaki?

        EDIT: Oh how special, one of the downtwinkle trolls is up early this morning. Mom make you get up so she can wash your sheets today?

        Don’t want teriyaki? Prefer hickory flavor instead?

        • CatHerder

          You don’t wanna ask why the sheets need to be laundered so often, trust me on this.

  • jfcarr

    No rescue dog for the Obamas. They have to buy an expensive breed. I guess it would be harder to justify flying a half-pit bull half-lab mutt around the country at taxpayer expense.

    • OLLPOH ~ America

      what…a bi-racial dog too?

  • Ron Morisseau

    Is the puppy all black?

    • kateorjane

      well of course and if you have a problem with that you “must” be racist.

      • Ron Morisseau

        My feelings are so hurt…and ungawa for you

    • Gregor Eisenstein

      Apparently, Bo wasn’t ‘black enough’ for them.

    • Gregor Eisenstein

    • TexSizzle

      Is the puppy’s mother white, like the mother of the reader of the TOTUS?

  • shannon burrows

    The dogs have tighter “afros”

  • Richo

    Hurr hurr hurr, it was how many years ago Obama mentioned in a book that he followed the customs of the country he was in as a child and ate dog meat, and you still are trying to come up with “jokes” about it? Conservatives are just a yuk a minute, I tells ya.

    • Grandma HeadInjury

      Stings a little, doesn’t it, champ?

      Good.

    • Keith

      But Romney gave a guy a haircut in college..butt hurt much loser. Go check out huffpo for more drones like you

    • Republicanvet

      Yeah, eating dog is not as funny as a dog on the roof of a car though right?

    • Jill

      You’re so disgusted and so ‘over it’ that you purposely clicked on a link that you knew would be lampooning the President and his former culinary delights?

    Reblogged this on Freedom Is Just Another Word… and commented:
    What? Is Bo on the dinner menu???

  • Moonbeam

    The new doggie :) Cute

    • Rabid

      It looks more like a walking Pom-pom…

      • Maury

        • WhoMeToo

          At taxpayer expense.

    • ObamaFail

      A new doggie that Obama is going to give it’s own personal jet to like his other dog. All at taxpayer expense of course. That’s why “sequester” cuts caused those kids to be bumped out of head start. Gotta make sure POTUS’s two dogs can afford to be private jetted around the world on our dime.

    Surprised the FLOTUS didn’t name the new addition MO.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Zo, so you have BO ZO, the WH Dogs.

  • ICOYAR

    Surprised he didn’t name his second dog after himself as well.

    His first dog was named Bo for egotistical reasons.

  • Maury

    What happened to Porkchop?

    • ICOYAR

      Jim Jinkins would sue.

    Bo better be checking the WH menu closely from here on out.

        Watch it– that’s “anti-Guidoism.”
        Not that the Eric Holder DoJ would do anything about it.
        But Fat Tony might.
        You don’t wanna know how HE deals with this. Trust me, you don’t.

        • Scorpion

          That’s OK my wife is Italian by injection.

          • therealguyfaux

            I’ll bet it’s an offer she has never refused, eh Goomba?

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            LOL!

        • Scorpion

          That’s OK my wife is Italian by injection.

  • GaryTheBrave

    Has to be a black dog. Not white, brown, yellow, speckled, tri-color. Yeah, the Obama family is racist.

    • ObamaFail

      If it were a white Republican president who got another white dog, that’s what the liberals would be saying. So might as well give them a taste of their own medicine.

  • nc

    Sunny looks like an adorable puppy, but she’s actually a Squirrel!

    • ICOYAR

      More like a rat, as her owner is.

    • trixiewoobeans

      Heh heh.

  • ToyZebra

    Still waiting for Obama to adopt that shelter dog.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    GREAT SNARKS! In spite of the fact that I’m an “Old-School Pet nut.” Jawamax 8<{D}

  • mapache

    Obama will probably declare it a dependent on his taxes. The dogs will end up in the pound as soon as Obama leaves office and doesn’t have taxpayer paid staff to take care of them.

    • Guest

      Not necessarily, on page 102,491 in Section 2.02-F of the ACA (Obamacare), that issue is already addressed and taken care of. That one is not being pushed back.

  • JeffWRidge

    Cute little pooch.

  • RalphTheCat

    How pretentious.
    .
    Go get an American mutt from the shelter.

  • run4fun53

    Just another dog to be ignored by the Ones. At least Bo will have a playmate and they won’t have to pay for someone to entertain Bo! Oh No! maybe it means it will cost twice as much now since they will need two handlers and poop scoopers 😀

  • eeddggy

    Even their choice in dogs is Un-American.

  • eeddggy

    I’m wondering if those tongues helped each of them to make the choice of pets.

  • Michelle L.

    at this point a cute dog will not help them, unless they’re hungry.

  • Republicanvet

    …so Preezy Bobo is becoming a rancher? He’s building a nice herd.

  • ObamaFail

    This is the real reason the “sequester” cut those kids from head start programs. Obama is saving tax payer dollars for a second private jet for this dog. He wants to make sure each dog gets it’s own private jet, so he made cuts so their would be funds.

  • Right Wired

    He’s already registered to vote.

  • therealguyfaux

    This just in: President Obama has invited the Indonesian Ambassador for Thanksgiving dinner at the WH. As part of the ceremonies, the President will officially “pardon” Sunny and Bo.

  • Joe W.

    Do we now get a second $100,000 a year pooper-scooper???

  • stuckinIL4now

    “Veal” is the code name for the WretchedHive chefs so they know how to tenderize the meat while they “prepare” him when the time comes …

  • Judy Taylor

    Hey, Egypt’s on fire and look! a squirrel – I mean puppy. Swear I read this “puppy” was born 4 years ago in Michigan. Confirm anyone?

  • RedSoloCup

    Will she get her own Osprey?

  • Dane Gunderson

    . @FLOTUS Does Sunny get his own plane like Bo does? #AirForceBone
