    Default News Video: Horses Deliver 2012 Christmas Tree to White House

    Just before Thanksgiving. Appears Michelle and the kids don't have much interest in horses. Didn't even stop to pet them or say hello.

    Those are HUGE horses. Maybe they are wary. They are city kids.

    I guess not everyone is pulled in by horse magnetism of irresistible strength.

    I didn't hear one thank you coming from those kids. Entitled. The only one in that family worth his salt is BO the dog. He has all the class and intelligence.

    Bo (the dog) for president. Look at the mess he'd inherit.

    Oh please. I heard Michelle say something about how big the horses were , obviously in response to one of her daughter's comments and it appeared they were a little worried about Bo. So what if they did not pet the horses. I don't like to approach horses in harness either: there's too much to get smooshed by. Does everything have to be so hateful? Shame on you. It is Christmas.

    Perhaps she was advised not to touch the horses? Like service dogs who are working you aren't supposed to touch or pet them either.

    So just perhaps she was advised not to touch them. The one seemed a bit restless and had troubles standing still. So for her safety and the safety of everyone no one was to touch the horses or the wagon as they gave that a wide girth as well.
