Barack Obama Ate Dog, Mitt Romney Supporter Proclaims!

by at . Comments

Mitt Romney's campaign is fighting back in the War on Dogs, excerpting a passage from President Obama's memoir in which he admits eating one as a kid.

The Daily Caller's Jim Treacher wrote a blog post with an excerpt from Dreams From My Father in which Obama writes of eating dog as a boy in Indonesia.

"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)," writes Obama.

Romney, Obama

Treacher brought out the excerpt as a way of responding to a very odd, old story that has haunted Romney since the Boston Globe first reported it in 2007.

The story goes like this: In 1983, Romney strapped the family dog's crate to the roof of the car for a 12-hour drive from Massachusetts to Canada.

On the trip, the dog, an Irish Setter named Seamus, suffered the "runs," as Ann Romney put it this week. Her husband coolly pulled over to hose off the dog and the car, then kept driving, with the dog back in the crate on the roof.

When the anecdote came out, Alabama resident Scott Crider launched an online group called Dogs Against Romney, which now has 48,000 fans on Facebook and has sought to keep the Seamus story in the news this year.

Eating dog meat 40-plus years ago in Indonesia may be less unusual than Seamus' 12-hour roof ride in America, but conservative media have seized on the story.

"Say what you want about Romney, but at least he only put a dog on the roof of his car, not the roof of his mouth," Treacher wrote, defending his post.

"And whenever you bring up the one, we’re going to bring up the other."

Mitt Romney has all but wrapped up the GOP's contentious nomination process and will face off with Obama for the presidency in November's election.

Expect to hear a lot more about Seamus and Indonesia before then.

Which dog story is worse?

I can easily believe that when a young Barack "was introduced to dog meat" as a kid, the dog was already dead,cleaned and then prepared according to a certain recipe. There is No recipe for strapping a dog on Top of a car in a crate (as a grown man with the family) while driving for hours with the poor pooch being treated like an animal (for real). The dead dog didn't know that he was being eaten, the family pet didn't care for the long haul of going on vacation, but I am sure he cared about being mistreated,and he ended up expressing his unhappiness the only way he could!!

Maybe he should have taught his 567 or 8 children to care for their pet, then maybe they could have protested the treatment of their family dog..... And what about you Annie, did you not have a say??? Good dog " BO" good dog. You have a family that loves you.....a family with values. Mr. Obama is a great father and husband...a man with morals.

You are so right " SPOT"! He didn't have to ..... He ate with that silver spoon. He was a fortunate one. " I think some consider it successful. A mans success is measured in many ways. Donald Trump is considered successful too....lol. It is so sad to see that people tend to be in awe of others financial gains..... At any cost.

Haven't any of you people had a real dog, the kind that runs around and loves to hop in a truck and go for long rides with wind in his hair? Dogs love to be on a vehicle, nose to the wind and tongue flapping.

MR. ROMNEY HAS NO RESPECT FOR EMPLOYEES THAT HE HAS FIRED, YOU REALLY THINK HE HAS RESPECT FOR HIS FAMILY PET?? He laughs about these things, remember? "I LOVE TO FIRE PEOPLE" he has a home in a state that has no tax, and he will neve pay the tax he should be required to. He is a beater in every sense of the word. The silver spoon that he still carries in his pocket. Money associates with money, he could care less about this country. I really thought the republicans would have better choices this time. So hold on puppy, it's going to be a bumpy ride!

When I was a kid we had a dog who went on some family trips with us. He loved to have almost half his body hangin' out the window wind blowin' his ears wildly! No harm done and he greatly enjoyed it. Quit making a mountain out of a moe-hill! This is all to deflect from the fact Obama doesn't have a record to run on and under him we're doing worse! And that's all it is! If he truly was a successful President he'd be talking about what he's gotten accomplished and about how much better off everyone is! Instead? The dog wars! Geez!

Its wrong to strap an animal to the roof of your car. There is no excuse for that. As for eating one.....thats gross but it was the culture. I cant stand Obama but i cant crucify him for being a child and eating what was given to him. When in Rome .....

Let's see...a grown man in his thirties strapping a helpless dog to the roof of his car until he shat himself and a ten year old in a foreign country eating dog meat. Yeah those two things are equal. I see Romney's camp will say and do anything to become president. Like his wife said its their 'turn'. Sad.
