Obama as a Boy Ate Dog Meat
ABC NEWS ^ | 4/17/2012 | Jake Tappert

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 candidate’s odd past with man’s 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 Obama’s 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.

[There is no moral equivalence between a young Barry eating what was given to him in a culture where it was accepted (in Italy,' you can buy rabbit at the grocery store, and horse is a delicacy......with rumors about cat in the Veneto region after the first snow) and Romney making a dumbass choice.]

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.

Holy pooch. Um, thanks for sending me to twitter. Reading them at 4 am in the dark while feeding babe and trying not to crack up.

“why did Mitt Romney put his dog on his car?”

“so Obama wouldn’t eat him”

And the recipes... Sooo funny.

The right chasing these BS issues like eating dog, war on moms, war on women, ho’s in Columbia, etc, is just playing into Obama’s hand. It serves him well to talk about anything but the economy, gas prices, debt, deficit spending; the list goes on.

Don't go here LINK http://saveindonesiadogs.weebly.com/stop-dog-meat-trade.html if you love dogs, or are shocked at such photos of dog meat preparation in Indonesia, but it is a fact, and I would say they definitely use this in the General if the Democrats start to make any noise about it.

People wearing these T shirts to Obama rallies (be ready for SEIU thugs though), would be a blast, too!

What was N.O.W.'s reaction to CBS reporter Lara Logan getting gang raped by a bunch of Islamist Egyptian thugs in a crowd in Cairo? (crickets).

Goes against their narrative. Those who want to destroy America have natural allies who in many respects are repugnant to the so called ideals the libs stand for.

Popular Indonesian dog-meat dishes are rica-rica, called variably as "RW" or rintek wuuk, rica-rica waung, guk-guk, and "B1". Locally on Java, there are several names for dishes made from dog meat, such as sengsu (tongseng asu), sate jamu, and kambing balap.

“I wonder how many libs have Obama’s books on their shelves as decoration without ever reading one page?”

I’d say it’s roughly the same number of Germans who had copies of “Mein Kampf” but also never read it. Good place to stash a few bucks; no one would ever think of looking there.

I thought Muslims believe that dogs are unclean. So Obama must have really ticked off Allah, by eating dog meat and them becoming an apostate to the Islamic faith into which he was born (Barrack Obama Sr. was a Muslim making his son one too)and in which he was raised.

Obama may have been a boy when he ate dog meat, but he was a man when the book was written. The wording shows no regret, no indication of childish curiosity. He is responsible for his words (or Ayers’ words published under his name.)

No, this isn’t a big deal, it is just us laughing at Obama.

And we all know how thin his skin is.

So I read all the twitter stuff and laughed and laughed and laughed, knowing in the long run this doesn’t amount to much.

But what makes it even more funny is the way the left is stewing about this.
