There are a lot of Americans who could learn a thing or two from this dog.
Forty-seven percent of them, according to Mitt Romney.
I don’t know how she did it, but this woman appears to have trained her dog to accept treats when they are offered in the name of “Mom” or “Dad.” But if the treat is said to have come from Barack Obama, the dog disdainfully turns its head away.
Not that we blame the animal. In fact, it’s sort of refreshing to see someone — anyone — refusing government pork.
Er, well … a government carrot. But you know what I mean.

If only more people would act that way.
Instead, more and more Americans — and, for that matter, foreign nationals who happen to live inside our borders — eagerly snatch up anything offered to them by the government. Many of them even have the gall to complain about the free handouts they’re given on the back of the American taxpayer.
But even I have to admit that this is a rather silly way to prove a point. I love dogs, but I’m not for one second going to allow myself to believe that they are capable of the type of critical thought required to reject liberalism and embrace the conservative ideals of limited government, personal responsibility and individual liberty.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I promised my betta fish that I’d read Federalist No. 42 to him again.
It’s his favorite one.
