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.

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?
hint: you used it
Snake and dog.......that explains a few things.
So that is what happened to Rin-Tin-Tin, Obama ate him out of a tin!
Guess it was his job to wok the dog when he was a kid? /groan
I’ve heard that that’s not the worst thing O’blamer has had in his mouth.
Oh, come on.
He was under 10 and dragged around by his slutty commie mom. Sheesh.
What do you call a Kenyan with 2 dogs?.
What do you call a Kenyan with 3 dogs?
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.
So it really was a dog eat dog world.
Look at him, he’s holding the dog’s head up for a photo op
what a putz
“@davidaxelrod: “How loving owners transport their dogs.”
where’s that picture of Reggie and Bo getting off their own private plane to the obama family vacation in Maine?
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.
That's a beautiful snake. The Newtster seems to have a fondness for animals (good quality, in my book).
Is dog meat considered Halal?
People wearing these T shirts to Obama rallies (be ready for SEIU thugs though), would be a blast, too!
Obama you dog, you ate boy meat?
He has NO BUSINESS in OUR CAR!!!
Just what is PETA’s position on this atrosity????? Enquiring minds want to know.
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.
“I wonder how many libs have Obamas 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.
“He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate”
Did Bar Obama eat a dictator,too?
I just had a funny thought. IF you “are what you eat”, then what does that make Mr. Obama?
I have eaten dog meat. Mine was tasty and very spicey. Now that I’ve done it, I don’t plan on eating it again.
So what if he eats dog? I like to eat p$%%*^! OOPS! I bet that one gets banned!
When I saw this post I was going to ping you to it.
Too late! LOL!
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.
That is the coolest website, LOL! Thank you!
So he wanted to be a zoo director. Rick Perry wanted to be a vet. Knew there was a reason I liked these guys.
Seamus: Im coming to save you. Mitt is on the West Coast.
[if Newt became POTUS, he’d still get his wish...sort of]
What do you call a Kenyan with 3 dogs?
Rats, you beat me to it ... that’s what I get for not reading the whole thread before posting. :-)
