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”
