Bad news: Obama used to eat dog meat; Update: Romney, Obama staff now arguing over dog-eating on Twitter

posted at 10:01 pm on April 17, 2012 by Allahpundit

By popular request. If the Party Of Ideas™ is actually going to devote a chunk of this campaign to something as stupid as this, I guess we’ll have to play ball. Jim Treacher, who’s having endless fun with it, flags the key passage from “Dreams from My Father”:

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).

But wait, wasn’t he just a kid at the time, partaking in the normal culinary customs of Indonesia? Well, guys, that’s what campaigns are for — to hash out the important issues. Like this one.

Incidentally, there’s a method to the Democratic madness here. From Byron York’s recent piece:

In late January, for example, top Obama campaign aide David Axelrod sent out a tweet that included a photo of Obama with his Portuguese water dog Bo in the back seat of the presidential limousine. “How loving owners transport their dogs,” Axelrod wrote.

It wasn’t a random comment. “They’re obsessed with the dog thing,” liberal journalist Chris Hayes said on his MSNBC program Sunday morning, referring to the Obama campaign. “And the reason is that, I have heard, in focus groups, the dog story totally tanks Mitt Romney’s approval rating.”

Assuming Hayes is right, consider this a postscript to my earlier post about shiny objects on the campaign trail. Dumb policy widgets like the Buffett Rule come and go without making a blip with voters but vivid character insights, as the story with Romney’s dog is alleged to be, can make a penetrating impression. I think O’s famous bitter-clinger remarks on the trail in ’08 did more damage to him than any of his policy proposals, including more federal intervention in health care, because it seemed to be a window onto his character. He came off as an archetypal condescending elitist liberal, politely disdainful of what rural Americans hold dear. The Dems don’t have anything quite that damaging from Romney’s own lips yet — although, given his penchant for saying stuff like this, it’s probably a matter of time before he really steps in it — but the dog story is a useful proxy for now.

Anyway, the Obama/dog jokes are flying in the righty blogosphere tonight. Exit question: I like the last one that Treacher posted, but … didn’t Alf eat cats?

Update: This really is going to be the dumbest campaign ever, isn’t it? First, Romney advisor Eric “Etch-a-Sketch” Fehrnstrom picks up the Obama-ate-dogs meme and snarks:

In hindsight, a chilling photo RT @davidaxelrod: How loving owners transport their dogs. http://bit.ly/xGeJuZ

Follow the link to see the pic. Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt didn’t care for it, so back came the reply:

What’s the next attack @EricFerhn and the RNC will surface on a 6-10 year old?

Over to you, Team Romney. Full-fledged media war over dog-eating tomorrow!

Update: Now Jake Tapper’s having fun with it.

Obama eating dog? Obviously the dog did not finish the job unfortunately….

Sherman1864 on April 18, 2012 at 12:52 AM

I have a question.

Did Jim Treacher come up with this gem by himself or was that a planted counter-punch by the Romney Campaign in response to the Seamus story the Dems and the media were beating to death for the last couple of days (and afterwards, Barry ate it)?

galtani on April 18, 2012 at 12:35 AM

I actually thought about this too. When I saw the clip of the Romneys doubling down on Seamus-gate in that Diane Sawyer clip I did think (to paraphrase Scooby): “Ruh Roh — Libs are never going to understand this, they should have just said ‘it was 30 years ago, it was a mistake’ to kill the story.”

But now, after I’ve seen the rapid #obamadogrecipes response, I’m thinking the Romneys doubled down on Seamus for this specific purpose — it is all too perfect. At least, I hope it was because that line about Obama eating dog has been in that book since it was published, yet it was never brought up in 2008. If this was planned by the Romney camp, then they actually took the time to read that POS book & they are smart enough to actually staying 2 steps ahead of Obama.

This is how much the Obama Prezuhduncy has dumbed down America.

From Jake Tapper’s article:

“Like many Indonesians, Lolo [Soetoro] 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.”

Obviously, Lolo never brought home the tiger meat, but now we know why Obama is such a dog!

The Democrats are used to a Republican party that simply reacts to their initiatives. They aren’t used to any “backtalk”. This must have them completely flummoxed. Rather than simply saying what they want to say, having a fawning press tweak, polish, and spin it while suppressing any “backtalk”, they are suddenly faced with communications that they don’t/can’t control. They are now being held responsible for what they say. They are finally being subjected to a free “press” but it isn’t the “press” of the major media conglomerates, it is the “press” that is available to all of us now on the Internet.

The right has learned how to use the weapons that the left has employed for so long and we now have an avenue for launch.

Dear Democrats, welcome to the 21st century.

And yet, he still carried the state; which is why I don’t put too much weight in his horrendous gaffes. Only those who do not need convincing are paying attention. The traditional media rush to cover for him, the moochers don’t care anyways, and the “purist” are more interested in “sending messages” than in his defeat. Not a good prognosis

Ha. Soon to be found on the Endangered Species list…

This will be just a 48 hour cycle story. No one will remember that Obama ate a dog 6 months from now.

Except for the eaten dog and Bo (who will keep a wary eye on his “master”).

as amusing as this, I still can’t shake the feeling the worlds is still burning down.

Believe it or not, we’ve actually been contacted by multiple media outlets wanting to know PETA’s official response to the executive insect execution.

Treach won the internets today. For.Sure. Best #hashtag ever.

YES.

Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.

And #ObamaDogRecipes are irresistible. Almost anyone can come up with a good one, and I’d bet even DNC staffers are whispering “Chicken Poodle Soup” or “Toto Tartar” at one another and snickering. Especially, ESPECIALLY on the day of Mo’s “Out of the dark meat darkness, into the light” speech, it’s brilliant.

Another reason never to “shake hands” with Obama if I ever found myself nearby. He might get the wrong idea.

Did Obama wash down Fido with Mad Dog?

Wow, this is gonna bruise a certain ego.

dogsoldier on April 18, 2012 at 6:10 AM

Bad news: Obama used to eat dog meat;

Gee…Wonder if Bill and Hillary will send these dogs (photos below) to the White House Chefs cook-pot?? Perhaps as some ‘fine cuisine’ to tempt the palates of Obama and Mooch???

If they like it…”dog” may even appear on school menus in the future !!

America… what a country!! :)

Nothing ever gets accomplished. Nothing. We’ve become the least serious nation on earth. We deserve our demise.

SnarkVader on April 17, 2012 at 10:33 PM

+1000… BUT… this is directed at the wrong crowd. It’s not us that are uninformed and disinterested. We can multitask and enjoy the silly and still keep our eye on the important.

Reading your posts reminded me of a little ditty a friend just sent me. Don’t know if it’s a real article or just something someone made up but there’s a lot of truth in it.

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way that you can quickly understand them. This quote came from the CzechRepublic. Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper Prager Zeitungon on 04.28.2010.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”

Reminds me of the scene from War of the Roses when Kathleen Turner replied to Michael Douglas compliments about the meal

“Woof”

Classic!

The Blue Dogs are disappearing. Irony or what?

Meanwhile, in “news” that acually matters….the nattonal debt is approaching $16 TRILLION: http://www.usdebtclock.org/

This really is going to be the dumbest campaign ever, isn’t it?

Yes.

ddrintn on April 18, 2012 at 7:28 AM

Enough playing around.

Romney needs to make a campaign promise that if he wins, he’ll strap Barry on top of his Suburban and drive him all the way back to Chicago… or Hawaii…. or Indonesia… or the MOON!

cane_loader on April 18, 2012 at 7:30 AM

Hmmmm… eating dog… snake… and grasshopper….

The transitional cuisine of North Korea before getting to grass and tree bark!

Yup the Yellow Dogs and Blue Dogs have grown much scarcer over the last couple of years… moderates, they are what is on the menu.

George Bush and Dick Cheney made him do it.
