Will the GOP use the White House Holiday card as evidence of some vast left wing conspiracy, and claim President Obama is sending the country to the dogs? First Dog Bo Obama graces the cover of the charmingly beautiful card.
“The card was designed by Larassa Kabel, a professional artist from Des Moines, Iowa,” the White House blog notes. “Ms. Kabel has been creating photorealistic prints, paintings and drawings for the past 8 years and was featured as a solo artist in the Des Moines Art Center’s Iowa Artist Show in 2009, the Iowa Artist 2010 group show and many other solo and group shows in Iowa, Michigan, Texas, Florida and New York. Her work is in several private and corporate collections including Aviva, Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, and the World Food Prize headquarters. She also has a much-loved dog at home, which is why she chose to feature Bo in this year’s White House Holiday card.”
Jeff Strater notes the card has a Teamsters logo and a “union bug’ — a small icon noting the card was printed by union workers — on the back.
Readers will remember last week we shared the amazingly cute and beautiful official White House holiday video featuring First Dog Bo Obama. Take a look — and listen — it’s actually expertly done and beautiful.
Readers will also remember last week we shared that radical right wing nuts are working to prove Obama is waging a War on Christmas, by having too many trees –54! — in the White House.
