Skip to comments.Obama as a Boy Ate Dog Meat
Posted on 04/17/2012 10:17:28 PM PDT by JRochelle
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.

WHO did That in that bun?
Great. He has the power to lift his leg on everything and chew up slippers...
Rush is going to have a field day with this!
While visiting Amish land in PA, I ate chocolate covered ants, once.
I thought it was some kind of clever euphemism or joke name.
Imagine my surprise.
[imagine the Amish lady’s surprise when I spat them out at her feet]
Oh, to be 10, again.
I guess I can't run for President now.
I call BS on this.
Proves my point.
He’s a gun grabber too.
Although I guess yours looks more like a gun hugger!
Which is why, when I saw this article, I thought it was something about his marriage to Mooch the Pooch.
We had to take him *and* the Mossberg down just to get him unwrapped.
He -really- loves that thing.
[but he also enjoys looking through the AR’s scope...crazy snake]
Of course, there is no moral equivalency. Neither is their a 'moral' issue; per a 'dumb-ass choice'- and one often made by owners of dogs at the time. More often and worse, perhaps; when traveling; owners were in habit of putting their dog in the trunk of the car.
Of course, the big SUV was not around back then; but we can duly note and often; that even this does not solve the 'dumb-ass' problem; as even pampered dogs today; are often seen, 'seriously' hanging out an open window; as owner 'cruises'. We see dogs; all the time; loose (tied up; as threatening to dog) in back of high speed pick up trucks.) See exhausted; heat-threatened dogs, too often, as well; running along side their owner; but clearly, without benefit of 'water bottle'. (Find photos - surely some Dem Congressmen here/lol. And yes; some of the bad body language photos of Obama/w/dog! IF Dems keep on. . .)
Yes, for sure; all this is to create dissonance/distraction in mind of beholder and crowd more critical judgments of Obama.
That said; and all logic aside (where this attack story begins); the 'dog meat' story should - or could - scare Obama team just a bit; they surely cannot 'defend' this; without giving the story legs; that can only this story down a 'wrong path'; in mind of beholder.
Looks to me like “dinner” could kick his spindly a$$.
...and slither along the ground hissing at anything he doesn`t like.
BTW, aren`t muslims supposed to avoid dogs and snakes? His teachers must`ve beat on him but good down at the madrassa.
“Yeah, we ate dogs, but they were road kill.”
Gee, who knew you could buy all that with food stamps.
Hey! Tigers are an endangered species!
Somehow I do not think there are too many fat dogs runing around in Kenya.

What do you call a ‘Kenyan’ with 1 dog?
What do you call a ‘Kenyan’ with 2 dogs?.
The obscene, debauched, immoral-looking, naughty, self-indulgent looking, tobacco spittin’, beer drinkin’, compromised, SPOILED, kitty kat again! He’s like a train wreck; you can’t look away! - He could have a lucrative career in politics! What’s his name?
