Many of you may already be aware that Jim Treacher at The Daily Caller pried this little gem out of President Obama’s book, Dreams from my Father, about Obama’s consumption of dog meat while living as a child in Indonesia.
Well, the story has spread like wildfire across the Internets. While not much of an issue, it does have a real effect: It completely negates the story being stoked by Obama’s people about Mitt Romney transporting his dog on top of his car.
The Romney dog story, silly as it is, fit with the narrative being spread by Obama’s people that Romney is uncaring, out of touch, and just plain goofy. Now they’ll have to shut up about it.
The Obama campaign reacted huffily, and therefore ineptly. Spokesman Ben LaBolt tweeted: “What’s the next attack @EricFehrn and the @GOP will surface on a 6-10 year old?”
Politico has some of the best Tweets on the Obama dog eating scandal, which are appearing under the hashtag #obamadogrecipes. Here’s a selection:
