Obama Ate His Dog — Open Thread

This actually started as an off-topic comment in the previous thread, but there is so much humorous material involved in the “man eats dog” story that it deserves its own thread.

UPDATE, by Matt Margolis: a couple of my own tweets on the subject:

    So, I’ve been gone a while, where are all the libiots? Is there no one here to defend Obama dog diet?

    The problem for them is when they come to defend him eating a dog, they’ll still have to mention that he ate a dog

    • tiredoflibbs April 18, 2012 / 12:32 pm

      The libidiots got tired of defending the indefensible.

      ….and the drones can only regurgitate “big oil”, “the rich” and class warfare for so long – this seems to be obAMATEUR’s themes right now. There are no accomplishments to tout. They really can’t brag about:

      *increasing the debt more than the first 41 Presidents combined
      *stewarding a failed recovery with the usual liberal spending schemes
      *decreasing the working population – those available to work
      *increasing the use of welfare and food stamps
      *increasing the size and scope of government
      *failed energy policies that have resulted in millions spent on bankrupted companies
      etc. etc. etc.

    If Obama gets another four years, by the end of his second term nobody will care that he ate dogs, because nobody will be able to afford to eat anything else. He’ll solve it the same way he solves everything else: a snappy catchphrase.

    This is a fun story, but there is a difference between your father giving you dog meat when you are 6-10 years old while you live in Indonesia, learning to be an extremist, and being an adult and “forgetting” your dog on the car roof as you travel 12 hours from Boston to Canada.

    Also, this isn’t a new story since Obama is the source in his own book, ghostwritten by Bill Ayers, called “Dreams from my Father”.

    IMO best joke so far.

        Mitt made a mistake (not a huge mistake) by putting his dog on the roof. Obama made no mistake as a child eating culturally acceptable food offered by his step-dad.

    • Amazona April 20, 2012 / 8:42 am

      When an obviously intelligent man is so fond of his dog that he prefers to take the dog on family vacations, when this man goes to the trouble and expense of building a windscreen to protect the dog in his carrier on top of his car, when he and the family have taken the dog on many trips and the dog eagerly runs up the back of the car into the carrier when it is time to go, the only way anyone could insert the phase “forgetting” your dog on the car roof as you travel 12 hours from Boston to Canada….. is if he simply wants to impugn the character of the man and doesn’t mind inventing something nasty to do so.

      What we call “lying”.

      Now, on Planet Doof, Romney evidently “FORGOT” the dog on the roof. Yep, two adults and five children “FORGOT” there was a dog on the roof of their car, for 12 whole hours.

      I think this effectively shoots down doof’s claim of being a father, as any real father who has traveled with even one child, much less five, knows full well that any trip is replete with bathroom stops. But on Planet Doof, an entire family of seven could, and did, over a period of 12 HOURS!!!! repeatedly return to a car with a large dog carrier on its roof and, you got it folks, FORGET it was there.

      Or forget the dog was in it. Who knows what strange fantasies flourish on Planet Doof?

      All we do know is that lying is not prohibited.

    • Amazona April 20, 2012 / 8:46 am

      It’s 309 miles from Boston to Montreal. Sounds like ol’ Mitt and family drove nice and slow on that trip, eh? Gee, if only there was a math guy around to figure out his average speed.

      Do ya think the guys at the border might have noticed the dog on the roof and, what’s the word? Oh yeah, REMINDED the family he was there? When I’ve crossed the Canadian border with my dog, I’ve had to show proof of vaccinations, etc.

        Obama Legalizes Horse Slaughter for Human Consumption

        cannibalism to follow…….

      • Amazona April 20, 2012 / 9:00 am

        neo—an observation on the only thing Obama has done that I approve of, the removal of the ban on horse slaughter in the United States—

        The well-meant but foolish ban on horse slaughterhouses in the United States is a classic example of Unintended Consequences. The ban did not protect horses, or save horse lives.

        On the contrary, horses that would have been shipped to local slaughterhouses, where they would have been killed under U.S. regulations, are now packed into cattle trailers and hauled thousands of miles, to Canada or Mexico.

        They are still killed, but in conditions that are, as in the case of Mexico, brutal and savage.

        The real problem with horse slaughter in the U.S. was not the killing of them, but of the transport.

        Horses do not travel like cattle do. Pack a lot of strange horses in together and there will be fighting, with horses unable to flee or defend themselves. Do this in a slick-floored cattle trailer and you have misery, with injured horses lying on slick aluminum floors unable to get up, trampled by other terrified horses. If you were a horseman you would be familiar with the horror stories of horse transport. Cattle trailers also do not have the headroom needed by horses, so for a long trip you can have 40 or more horses crammed into a steel or aluminum trailer, with their heads forced down at unnatural angles, with no food or water for however many hours it can take to go from, say, Denver to Mexico or Canada (doof says it takes 12 hours to go from Boston to Canada) standing on slick floors made slicker with urine and manure, and sometimes being bullied by dominant horses.

        It is an animal lovers’ nightmare. The documented stories would make you sick.

        We fought for legislation to monitor transport of horses in the United States, and we fought for laws overseeing how they are slaughtered.

        I don’t know how Canada handles its horse slaughter but I have seen pictures of how they are treated in the Mexican slaughterhouses and it is the stuff of nightmares. Literally.

        Rescinding the American ban on domestic slaughter of horses was the right thing to do. It was humane and decent, and will save hundreds of thousands of horses from undue agony and terror.

        I am a horsewoman, and a bleeding heart animal lover. I have spent thousands of dollars and untold hours working to rescue horses from abusive conditions. I have fought with county officials and been threatened with jail when I went on TV and talked about negligence in a county animal control office. I still have three of the horses I took from an abusive situation, starved down to skin and bones, in 2006, and the foals two of them were carrying when they were rescued. I work with horse people and veterinarians and people who actually understand the reality of horse overpopulation and horse slaughter have been objecting to this ban for years.

        There is plenty to blame Obama for. Don’t use the one thing he did right because it sounds bad to the uninformed.

      • bardolf April 18, 2012 / 11:25 pm

        Good question, since indeed dog meat is not Halal. Turns out Lolo wasn’t much of a practicing Muslim, one acquaintance called him more spiritual than Muslim.

        @Neoconehead. I’ve been told by Muslims that they follow the Jewish Bible’s food restrictions, so I used the word Kosher.

      • neocon1 April 19, 2012 / 8:12 am



        Caution to Muslim Consumers:

        Halal is a comprehensive Islamic term encompassing not only the matters of food and drink, but all other matters of daily life. Islam being the final and perfect way of life for humanity, it supersedes all the previously revealed religions including Christianity and Judaism. The rituals in all matters were perfected by God (al-Quran 5:3)

        According to Islamic Jurisprudence, no one except God can change forbidden (Haram) things into lawful (halal) for vice-versa. It is forbidden for people to change the lawful (Halal) things into unlawful (Haram), or vice-versa.

        Halal is a unique Islamic concept and eating zabiha (Islamically slaughtered) meat is a distinguishing part of a Muslim’s identity as expressed by Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him.

        Salient differences between kosher and halal are:

        Islam prohibits all intoxicating alcohols, liquors, wines and drugs. kashrut regards their wines kosher. Hence food items and drinks showing the kosher symbol containing alcohol are not halal.

        Gelatin is considered Kosher by many Jews regardless of its source of origin. If the gelatin is prepared from non-zabiha, Muslims consider it haram (prohibited). Hence foods items such as marshmallows, yogurt, etc., showing kosher symbols are not always halal.

        Enzymes (irrespective of their sources even from non-kosher animals) in cheese making are considered mere secretion (pirsah b’almah) according to some kashrut organizations, hence all cheeses are considered kosher by many Jews. Muslims look for the source of the enzyme in cheese making. If it is coming from the swine, it is considered haram(forbidden). Hence cheeses showing

        MUSLIMS like barry can eat dog…..BARAK BARK

        kosher symbols may not be halal.

      • bardolf April 19, 2012 / 4:02 pm


        Firstly dog meat is not halal as you can find out with a Google search.

        Secondly, I said that a Muslim (maybe a liar) told me if food X is forbidden by Jewish tradition then food X is forbidden by Muslim tradition.

        Logic does not allow you to then conclude that if food X is forbidden by Muslim tradition then it is forbidden by Jewish tradition. Thus your examples are irrelevant to the claim. There is no contradiction in saying that Muslims can’t drink Kosher wine as everyone knows that the Count is an alcoholic. An example would be something Jewish people are forbidden to eat but Muslims can eat.

        A implies B is equivalent to not B implies not A. It is not equivalent to B implies A.

      • Count d'Haricots April 19, 2012 / 6:08 pm

        And halal is a choice among Muslims; some predatory animals like dogs, bears, tigers, lions and other cats are considered by some Muslims to be makrouh or censurable rather than expressly forbidden. See: The imam Malik.

      • Count d'Haricots April 19, 2012 / 6:16 pm

        Many other things are trief (not kosher) but halal; rabbit, wild hens, shellfish and the small children of your enemy.

      • bardolf April 19, 2012 / 8:30 pm

        Thanks Count. The rabbit example is clear as day.

        Dog is supposedly only eaten by Christians in Indonesia. I imagine Lolo was teaching Barack a lesson in pandering to those who you don’t really support, but who might support you.

        Reminds me of the big free trade agreement with Columbia. Someone forgot to tell Obama’s entourage that free hookers were not part of the deal, just US manufacturing jobs. I’m betting the union bosses will still be shelling for BO in November.

        Obama’s neglect and perhaps abuse as a child didn’t end there.

        Obama’s grandfather chose a black male father figure for him: Frank Marshall Davis. Obama discusses Frank numerous times in his memoir, “Dreams From My Father,” but he leaves out some of the most interesting details. Davis was a drinking buddy, who shared the same politics as Obama’s grandfather.

        Davis was a member of the Communist Party. He wrote a fictionalized memoir boasting of his bisexual and pedophile exploits. In his memoir, Marshall describes how he and his white wife sexually abuse a 13-year-old girl entrusted to their care.

        He and his wife would have sex with the girl. Anne came up many times the next several weeks, her aunt thinking she was in good hands. Actually she was. She obtained a course in practical sex from experienced and considerate practitioners rather than from ignorant insensitive neophytes….I think we did her a favour, although the pleasure was mutual.”

        This same Frank Marshall Davis, according to Obama’s memoir, counseled Obama not to trust white people.

    What makes the dog-eating thing so funny is that it was kicked off by Axelrod, who tried to get something started by referring to the Romney dog traveling on top of the car. The humor is in the way it backfired, so dramatically.

    It turns out that only a few found the dog carrier thing upsetting, and it appears that one of these frets was based not on the fact the dog was riding on top of the car but on the odd conviction the dog was FORGOTTEN (!!!) on the roof of the car.

    BTW, the story got its start when Romney himself told it. The dog always rode in his rooftop carrier, would run up the back of the car to get in it when he knew they were going somewhere, but on one trip it turned out that before the trip the dog had eaten something he shouldn’t have, and got diarrhea on the trip, so they arrived with dog poo running down the windows. ( In doof’s version, the family of seven kept wondering “I wonder where that dog poo is coming from ??” because they simply FORGOT about the dog on the roof, but that version is, fortunately, limited to Planet Doof.) The story was a sharing of a family experience, and told years ago.

    It took a toxic and spiteful and not very smart Obama operative to try to make it into something that could be used against Romney, and it failed spectacularly.

    That’s the really funny thing about all this.

    Michelle to Barack: “Idiot, I said “walk” the dog, not “wok” the dog.”
