Skip to comments.Obama as a Boy Ate Dog Meat

Much has been made about Mitt Romney, in 1983, putting his family dog Seamus in a kennel on top of his roof and driving from Boston to Canada, with said canine Seamus making his displeasure known in a rather scatological way.
Democrats have signaled they have every intention of making sure the American people especially dog-lovers know the tale. In January, senior Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod tweeted a photo of the president and Bo in a car, with the snide observation: @davidaxelrod: How loving owners transport their dogs.
The Romney campaign signaled tonight that they are not about to cede any ground when it comes to a candidates odd past with mans best friend.
And the Obama campaign shot back, with a spokesman suggesting the Romney team was attacking a child, since the Obama act in question took place when he was a kid.
The Daily Caller noted that in President Obamas best-selling memoir, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, the president recalls being fed dog meat as a young boy in Indonesia with his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro.
With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy), the president wrote. Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.
After his mother married Soetoro, Obama lived in Indonesia from 1967 until 1971, from roughly the age of 6 through 10.

....and he was forced to eat it from the roof of a rich man’s car.
And he married one too!
And he married one too!
My dogs ain’t riding on Romney’s roof, and they ain’t gonna be Obama-feed.
What the hell happened to this country?
Newt is still in the race.
I’m betting he’s had more than dog meat...
That explains why Bo always looks a bit nervous.
Obama as a Boy Ate Dog MeatIsn't that what all the rich kids in Kenya eat?
I wonder how many libs have Obama’s books on their shelves as decoration without ever reading one page?
This story is just another reminder that our president is not “one of us”.
And now he's trying to force everyone in America to eat it.
Isn't it nice we have such specifics about our President's past?? /hurl

LOL. Look again where the hands are!
Dog meat? Did his transvestite nanny’s gay butcher freind supply it?
“He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate...”
Dog and snake. It worked.
That’s not a dog. It’s an animated prop.
