小编摘要:太太和女儿们正在夏威夷度假,总统奥巴马却于周三带着他的宠物狗博购物,目前他正在等待国会解决薪资减税案的僵局,所以不得不待在华盛顿。

导读:奥巴马带着他的葡萄牙水犬——博,在一大帮官员和新闻记者的簇拥下来到位于北佛吉尼亚的一家零售店为三岁的博买好吃的,这一幕被印在了白宫今年的节日贺卡上。

 
Obama travelled with Bo, and an entourage of aides, Secret Service agents, doctors and reporters, to a Northern Virginia strip mall to buy treats for the three-year-old Portuguese Water Dog featured on the White House holiday cards this year.

Bo accompanied him to PetSmart, where the dog made friends with a brown poodle named Cinnamon.

"Okay, Bo, don't get too personal here," Obama told the dog. He deposited Bo in the car before stopping by Best Buy for Apple gift cards and Nintendo Wii video games for his daughters, including "The Sims 3: Pets" and "Just Dance 3."

"The girls beat me every time on these dance games," he told reporters, joking that he would never let his picture get taken while dancing.

His total came to just under $200, and he told the cashier: "Let's see if my credit card still works," which it did.

The next stop was at Del Ray Pizzeria in Alexandria, Va., where the president bought three pizza pies. He shook hands with supporters to shouts of "I love you, President Obama," although a 50-year-old man said he disagreed with the Obama administration's decision to delay approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, which would transport oilsands crude from the western Canadian province of Alberta to Texas.

Michelle, Sasha and Malia Obama left for Hawaii on Friday and the president has delayed his trip to join them as a result of a political impasse over extending payroll tax cuts that are set to expire December 31.

He called Republican House Speaker John Boehner earlier on Wednesday to urge him to accept a two-month extension as a step towards a full-year deal, to be negotiated in early 2012.

White House spokesman Jay Carney, asked about the shopping excursion, said the president had been very busy ahead of the trip. "Sometimes it's nice to get out of the house," he said.
