Yes, Obama Ate Dog Meat


By Frances Rice

President Barack Obama wrote in his book "Dreams from My Father" how, as a young boy, he ate dog meat in Indonesia, fed to him by Lolo Soetoro, his stepfather who was a Muslim, as was Obama's father, a man from Kenya.

As reported, the following is what Obama wrote in his book:

"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). 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."

The one-liners are becoming legend.  Below are just a few as reported by Mr. Taranto of the Wall Street Journal.

The fact that Obama ate dog has become an issue because Obama and his liberal media sycophants are busily pushing a story about how Mitt Romney transported his dog almost 30 years ago, trying to paint Romney as a rich, heartless guy and turn voters against him.   So, what did Romney do?

Well, a reporter with the Washington Examiner, Byron York, wrote about the incident as shown in the below account.

"In 1983, Romney took his family on vacation and, faced with a packed station wagon, put his Irish setter Seamus in a travel kennel strapped to the roof of the car. Romney constructed a special windshield in an effort to make the dog more comfortable, but Seamus ended up relieving himself on the roof, which reportedly caused much consternation among the Romney boys. Ever since the story got out--it was reported by the Boston Globe in 2007, during Romney's first run for president--Romney opponents have used it in semi serious and sometimes fully serious ways to portray him as insensitive."

That's it.  Obama and his liberal allies, including late night comedians, are having a field day with this trivial story about Romney, all in an effort to distract voters from Obama's dismal record – ObamaCare that's not affordable, unemployment at 8.2%, and an economy destroying $14 trillion debt.
