Move over, Bo Obama. There's a new cutie in town.

The White House announced today via Twitter that a black Portuguese water dog has joined the company of the Commander-in-Chief, telling its 35 million followers in a simple message:

"Welcome to the family, Sunny."

No information about Sunny's age, origins or political leanings have been released, but his breed was likely selected due to Malia Obama's allergies.

We'll run as detailed a background check on this canine as we can over the next few days. For now, though, even Orson Scott Card would have to agree:

Sunny is quite the adorable addition.

Controversial Ender's Game author Orson Scott Card is at it again.

Recently, Card was criticized for saying that "there are no laws left standing that discriminate against gay couples" and suggesting that being gay is a choice.

He also expressed his vehement opposition to gay marriage, going to far as to say that he will "will act to destroy that government and bring it down."

Now, comments Card made in a May blog post about President Barack Obama have surfaced and further shocked the Internet community.

"Obama is, by character and preference, a dictator," Orson Scott Card wrote, comparing the President of the United States to Adolf Hitler.

Is that just loose talk? Not really. He's pretty serious, going to liken Obama to Adolf Hitler and theorize that he wants to become President For Life.

Card says Obama already ruined Hillary Clinton 2016 hopes, and will soon militarize a national police force comprised of "young, out of work, urban males."

Could President Barack Obama actually be impeached?

If you thought the "birther" conspiracy was over, think again. Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) helped stir the pot once again at a town hall meeting last weekend.

Answering questions from a fervent anti-Obama constituent referring to the "fraudulent" birth certificate of Obama, he said he would look into the matter.

He claimed, however, that there are enough House Republican votes to impeach the 44th President of the United States, albeit for an unstated reason.

Still, his comment raised more than a few eyebrows.

Only two Presidents have been impeached by Congress - Andrew Johnson (1868) and Bill Clinton (1998). Impeachment requires a majority vote.

Both were acquitted, as conviction and removal from office requires a two-thirds majority ... making it certain Obama is staying put until January 2017.

The rodeo clown who donned a President Obama mask over the weekend - and asked the crowd if it wants to see him get run down by a bull - has been banned from the Missouri State Fair by event officials.

While the identity of the clown remains unknown, the Missouri Rodeo Cowboys Association has issued a statement in which it extends "a sincere apology for the inappropriate act during the Bull Riding at the Saturday performance of the MRCA Rodeo."

Rush Limbaugh, however, doesn't believe an apology is necessary.

When does clowning around cross the line?

That's the question currently being debated after a rodeo clown at a Missouri State Fair donned an Obama mask this weekend and asked the crowd if it wanted to see the President "run down by a bull."

According to those in attendance, audience members clapped and cheered every time Obama's name was mentioned in such a manner.

Soon after the show, those behind the State Fair issued an apology on Facebook for such an "inappropriate and disrespectful" stunt, while Republican Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder condemned the act via Twitter, writing: “We are better than this."

Both Oprah Winfrey and former Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee will receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom honor from President Barack Obama.

The White House confirmed the awards on Thursday.

The medal is America's highest civilian honor. Bradlee led The Post to its peak during the Watergate years, still considered the high water mark for journalism.

Oprah Winfrey is, well, Oprah. A woman who needs no introduction.

“Good God, how fabulous,” Bradlee told the Post. “What more can a man get? I feel terribly honored. What does a person do to deserve this kind of prize?”

The Post, meanwhile, is being sold to Jeff Bezos for $250 million.

Oprah, meanwhile, is starring in The Butler and making headlines for everything from her comments on Paula Deen and race to her mentoring of Lindsay Lohan.

President Barack Obama visited one of his favorite haunts on his latest trip to L.A. sitting down for an interview on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

On NBC, the leader of the free world discussed a sampling of the pressing issues confronting his administration, but enjoyed a few laughs as well.

Asking about his "bromance" with former opponent John McCain, Leno pointed out that the two were fighting a lot before coming together on some issues.

"Well, that's how the classic romantic comedy starts?" Obama joked, before praising McCain as a man who stands for something, not against everything.

Leno also complimented Obama on the "eloquent" remarks he gave on July 19 after George Zimmerman was found not guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin.

The 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, turns 52 today.

He's probably feeling like he's 52 going on 73 at this point in his career.

Between still-modest economic growth, widespread global instability, myriad administration scandals and polarization in D.C., there's a lot on his plate.

Whichever side of the political spectrum you're on, you have to admit, the man's got a tough job. At the very least, Obama could use some birthday wishes!

Just hang in there, Mr. President. Enjoy your Sunday with the family.

In honor of today, here are some Barack and Michelle Obama pics:

Former U.S. Rep. Allen West (R-FL) is weighing in on remarks made by President Obama about Trayvon Martin's death. And he's not impressed.

West, Obama

Obama said Martin could have been him 35 years ago, and that African-Americans view the case "through a set of experiences and a history that doesn't go away."

West was turned off by Obama attempting to insert himself into the case:

"I believe it comes back to being a respectful young man and maybe that's something that was missing out of President Obama and Trayvon Martin's life."

"But to try to [make this] a personal experience is just absolutely horrific."

President Barack Obama has again waded into the controversy that is the death of Trayvon Martin and the subsequent George Zimmerman verdict.

Last weekend, he urged the public to honor the deceased, while respecting the verdict. Today's remarks were more impromptu and less detached.

Speaking at the White House about the Martin-Zimmerman case, Obama reacted both personally and as a member of the African-American community.

"When Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son," he said.

"Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago."

"When you think about why, in the African-American community at least, there's a lot of pain around what happened here."
