Our puppy Zeke has a big fenced in area that acts as his bathroom area. There is just no way to say that delicately. One of the interesting things I have noticed through the years is that he will pooh in a general section of the back yard. Once that section has been used a number of times he will move on to another section, abandoning the prior section until all the pooh has gone away.
We call the active section, the one he is currently using “Poohville”. When cutting the grass in the back yard it has become essential to know where the current “Poohville” is located. That information helps greatly with the process of avoiding pooh on the shoe. The goal when cutting the back is simple, not to step in it. I also have a spare set of sneakers, just in case.
Now, it is clear that our President takes the same approach to managing his affairs. He will make s series of statements in order to promote something like healthcare or immigration. Many of those statements are bald faced lies. That is the pooh. He will dot the landscape with multiple lies on a particular topic. That is his “Poohville”. Once he has gotten his way, he will move on, leaving to trail of lies behind. He will avoid returning to that topic as long as there is a chance he will be called out on the lies.
In other words he will wait until his own pooh is forgotten or dissolved before returning. It is his effort not to step in his own manure. He goes further. He tries to keep others away from his pooh as well.
If someone gets close Obama creates a crisis to keep others away. Right before the 5 Taliban were released, there was a huge negative Veteran Administration report. By releasing the Taliban for a deserter he kept most of the news away from the VA. The is how he avoids stepping in his own stuff. It’s a shame the the big news organizations are so willingly played.
I suspect they spend as much time a he does avoiding “Poohville”!
