Skip to comments.Obama’s dog days (Democrats pay for barking up the wrong tree)
Posted on 04/19/2012 5:52:11 PM PDT by DBeers
The 2012 presidential campaign has become a dog-eat-dog contest. For months, Obama campaign operatives sought to make an issue of Mitt Romney carrying his Irish setter Seamus in a rooftop dog carrier during a family vacation in 1983. Some major media outlets picked up the non-story, and the Obama campaign buttressed it with an endless series of snarky tweets and barbs. The liberals are chasing their tails with this tale.
On Tuesday, the Daily Callers Jim Treacher juxtaposed the Seamus story with a passage from President Obamas book Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, in which he describes eating dog meat while growing up in Indonesia. The message Democrats were trying to establish was that Mr. Obama was kinder to dogs. The book snippet supplied the rejoinder: At least Mr. Romney never ate one.
On its face, the dog-eating anecdote is just as much a non-story as the adventures of Seamus. But it exploded over social media and Twitter, and within hours, even mainstream-media news hounds picked it up. Man bites dog is always news. Its the kind of story that lingers, a humorous situation that lends itself to endless one-liners. (Why are there no more Blue Dog Democrats? Obama ate them.)
The Obama campaign is struggling to come up with a strong response, but nothing seems to stick. It can say the dog-eating took place when Mr. Obama was a child, that it was in a different culture or that the first family has not prepared dog in the White House. However, it cannot escape the ick factor, which will hound it until November. Now the Obama campaign will have to call off the dogs on Mr. Romney. Bo, the White House pooch, will have to retreat to an undisclosed doghouse until Election Day.

That was a funny article.
That is brilliantly disgusting. Eeewww.
Like him or not, Romney will fight back. Unlike George Bush or McCain, what the DNC throws at Romney they will get back.
It's not as if he wrote it.
Paging Michael Vick. Please pick up the green courtesy phone.
This is the funniest line I've read yet.
This whole thing is priceless!
I toyed with the idea of reading Dreams From My Father back in 2008 so that I could beat Liberals over the head with choice material.
Of course, I don't know if Liberals actually read anything not from the NY Slimes or the Washington Compost. They didn't actually read the Iraq Survey Group report or the Obamacare bill, did they?
LOL. When the SS brown shirts stop by, don’t forget to ask about ripping off hookers.
Hitler Finds Out Obama Ate His Dog
I at dog meat in the Philippines; but, I did not know I was eating dog.
Doesn’t matter. If the republicans can’t come up with something better than Romney, they have forfeited and Obama will walk right over them.
“If I had a dog, it would look like the dog Obama ate”. LMAO. Dude, that picture, and slogan, needs to go viral on the internet. LET’S DO IT!! LET’S DO IT!! LET’S DO IT!!! Facebook, e-mail, Twitter........
Dog; the other white meat.
If I could make one suggestion. Give the dog a collar with a name tag that says: “My name is Skittles”
Same thing happened to me in Korea.
Obama chose, uhmmm Bill Ayres chose to put that fact into Obama’s book. Furthermore, someone programmed Obama’s remarks about eating dog meat into some of his speeches.
I agree, that poster is a winner!
That is good. LOL. Live by Alinsky, then die by Alinsky.
I'm sorry..I can not stand the Communist in Chief, but Romney is an animal abuser and a committed leftist. If you want a flipping leftist..pick the one who eats them, not abuses them...it's more humane and tastes like chicken.
That cracked me up! Thanks!
With luck Obama will acquire a taste for PIT BULL!
This is a Win, Win situation.......no matter the outcome....it is good for the country!
If the republicans cant come up with something better than Romney, they have forfeited and Obama will walk right over them.
They said the same thing about Reagan and Carter in 1980. Just days before the Election, Carter was leading in the polls. He ended up conceding the Election before the polls closed in California.
Funniest freeping picture...BUMP! Great work FRiend.
I didn’t create the photo, but whoever did deserves a gold star.
Hope you guys have read it.
Now, down in Indonesia there were not large concentrations of Allied troops to hold in camps, but there were plenty of equally quite dangerous Chinese and mixed-blood people (buken asli in the words of Sukarno) the Japanese held in equally bad camps, complete with Korean guards.
A friend of mine was about 12 years old when the Japanese came to Java. Due to his age he was allowed to go in and out of the camp where his older relatives were held. He regularly hunted and dressed an animal that we would call a "RAT", and that was his meat, and their meat, and the meat the Korean guards got as well.
People who tell you folks don't eat dog, or rat, or endangered birds, or cats, or whatever in such and such a country have really never experienced life under the gun of a conquerer.
HA HA...so many funny posts!
In all the years i have been on FR, this is the funniest post ever. This is better than looter guy and that had me crying
The interesting thing is not allIndonesians eat dog. In fact, majority of them don’t. Only certain ethnics, notably the Bataks, the Manadonese and the Ambonese do. These are Christian areas. Muslims don’t even want to be anywhere close to dogs.
개 고기! (Korean for “dog meat”) In some places it’s a delicacy, but it’s not my choice of food. I prefer spicy kimchi.
How did barry get his dog to roll over?
It’s called a rotissierie.
I agree with the others....that is one of the best pics ever on FR!
It's not special to Moslems.
Beyond the dog business, is the “Silver Spoon” nonsense.
Obama’s banker Grandma (VP of Hawaii’s largest bank) sent him to the elite Punahou School. The current tuition for the private school is $18,450/year:
Barry was already a 1 percenter when he was in junior high.
Obamas dog ate his homework so.............
Don’t even try ;).
We always thought it was creepy that the Korean restaurant was across the street from the emergency vet clinic. Serial.

I agree. Every time 0b0zo opens his mouth and spouts the Silver Spoon nonsense that is an opening that deserves to be responded to e.g. he was born with a communist hammer and sickle in his mouth.
Who and what groups exactly financed his rise? The answers to those questions comprise his Silver Spoon.
