Presidential Politics – It’s A Dog Eat Dog World

April 19, 2012

Shock – horror – twenty-nine years ago, Mitt Romney, in an apparent fit of PETA-busting insensitivity, transported the family dog (in a safe and secure dog kennel) strapped to the roof of the family car.  Apparently, they were all on a family vacation, the dog had come down with a bit of doggy-tummy-trouble and, for everybody’s comfort, the dog rode “convertible” style.  Anyone who’s ever had a dog, in a car, knows that dogs love to stick their heads out the window to feel the breeze – it is hardly “mistreatment” of the dog.  And anybody who’s been trapped in a car when fido got gut-sick can only praise Mr. Romney’s creative and safe-for-all solution.

But of course, the Dems, from David Axelrod on down, are trying to show that Obama loves his dog so much that Bo gets to ride in the Presidential limo (not, I’m sure, when Bo is suffering from the doggy-trots).

However, if we’re going to dig into ancient Presidential family history – going back 30 years or more to see how Presidents (or candidates) treated their dogs in the past, we can begin by reading Mr. Obama’s book, “Dreams of My Father,” and learn that, with his Indonesian step-father Lolo (who actually, apparently, adopted him, making him more than a step-father), Obama quite literally put on the dog (on the menu, that is) … ““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 …”  the President wrote in one of his several tell-all autobiographies.  Even more telling, Obama read the book for the audio book edition, so you can hear him actually talking about eating the family pooch here:

Your President and mine went on to write that Lolo, a Muslim (like Obama’s birth father – draw your own conclusions, please), was also an animist – a person who believed as an article of religious faith that you took on the characteristics of animals you ate, which is apparently why he wanted his adopted son and future President to eat a dog – as well as a snake and a grasshopper – this was in the same paragraph as Obama talking about eating dog.  Which suggests that Obama is loyal to a fault – that his bark is worse than his bite – and, perhaps, that he might enjoy licking his hindquarters …  (Of course, that last is merely speculation – not being an animist myself, I’m not entirely sure how that works). I won’t even venture to guess what attributes he received from eating a snake, but the fable of the ant and the grasshopper comes springing to mind whenever I think of the welfare state President Obama is striving so hard to create.

One last note – I am swearing off any and all invitations to Democrat fund-raising barbecues, at least for the duration … and I’m going to take a pass on hot dogs as well.
