    No big deal, my family ate dog meat once when we were Peace Corps Volunteers with our 4 children in the Philippines. We also had a dog for a pet. The pets didn’t become meat but the strays, homeless, etc. did. The extemely poor even ate rats and we saw little monkeys being cooked over a fire. But mostly we ate lots of rice and bananas – actually ate very little meat. So there is nothing unusual about President Obama having eaten dog meat when he was a kid. It is a non-issue.

      Ping… of course it’s a non-issue. But it is funny! First president to eat a dog is one of Obozo’s few real accomplishments! :-)

      Have a nice day and great Memorial Day weekend!

      • Pingaling

        Eating dog is not an accomplishment. It is a cultural thing.
        Obama’s real accomplishments are much bigger and important and Ihave a funny feeling this may be where we would part company on friendly terms. You too have a good Memorial Day weekend and yes thanks to all who help protect our country.

          Don’t pay any attention to Obozo, he hasn’t got the sense God gave a goose. He has been on this blog too many times previous, bitching and complaining about Obama, and he is only trying to get a rise out of people. Most likely he doesn’t even vote…

          You tell em brother Pingaling! I hate how all Obama’s big accomplishments are kept on the down low! We need to be celebrating this man in the streets with giaint portraits!His biggest accomplishment is shredding the constitution in every americans face without even a real arguement….. let alone a fight. How can you not love this guy! Obama 2012! Whether you like it or not,he aint goin nowhere obozo, how about you must go! They need to regulate peoples opinions like this.

        I hear YOU are on the menu next in FL – of course only if a republican can get elected again – HOPEFULLY NOT IN MY LIFETIME!

  • ObozoMustGo

    At least Mitt didnt eat his dog! I’m just sayin……

    To all my lefty and righty friends on The Memo,

    Have a nice day and a great Memorial Day weekend as we honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we share in this greatest nation on God’s green earth!

      Bozo you just never seem to understand things. The issue isn’t that the dog was on top of the car but that even now Romney can’t admit that it was a bad choice.

      • ObozoMustGo

        Oh, I get it alright, Bill. What cracks me up is how you leftist nutjobs get all riled up about this sort of absolute nonsense that means NOTHING. You really are grasping at straws on these things, Bill. I dont blame you, though. If I were an Obozo supporter, and with his record, I suppose I’d be grasping at straws, as well.

        Have a nice day and a great Memorial Day weekend, my lefty friend!

          Obozo forgot to take his anti-depressant today. He’s really angry! LOL! Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, my facist friend!

          • ObozoMustGo

            Thanks for the chuckle, Stella. You have a great weekend, as well! :-)

        • skytimer01

          Bozo I know you love conversating with us liberals, because we are the ones that put up with your nonsense. Your rightie friends would not give you the time of day. And if they did they would call you a freak.

      how do you know mitt hasn’t eaten dog before? He wouldn’t admit it if he did.

      • ObozoMustGo

        You make a good point, Kal! :-)

        Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

    people who have problins with eating dogs, transporting dogs outside the cab of a car live in a small world

  • http://www.facebook.com/sue.pope Sue Pope

    And this man wants to be president!!!!!!!! Imagine what he might do to the country? hope this wakes the American people up that he is not presidential material

    • ObozoMustGo

      You sure are right ot be scared, Sue. I’ve heard Romney may even proclaim himself King and force all of us to put our dogs on top of our cars and take them to the slaughterhouse so that Obozo will have an endless supply of meat to eat as his reward for making himself a 1-termer! And then, he’ll round up all the liberals and send you to re-education camps where you will be forced to learn the concepts of individual liberty and freedom….. ohhhhhhh the humanity!!!!!!!! Ohhhhhhhh…. ohhhhh…. ohhhh!!!!!

      Dont hold you breath waiting for that, Sue. I’m just sayin……

      Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

    One thing about Mitt no one can deny is stupid people just need lots of family money to buy them an attendance. Mitt is the joke History will soon forget.

    Any dog riding in the back of a pick-up, or with there head out the window should wear some sort of eye protection…A big hard flying bug can put an eye out at only 15 mph.

    The REAL PRESIDENTIAL DOG SCANDAL is that a president is required by an UNWRITTEN LAW to have a dog at all, and this law is BRUTALLY ENFORCED by our feel-good, oppressive, conformist media.

    All the training he (BARNEY) had for attacking a MSNBC reporter, and he goes and bites on REUTERS !!

    A man like NIXON should have named his dog “CHESS” instead of “CHECKERS”

    I am a liberal and a dog lover. For years my dogs (as well as the occasionally suspicious looking hitch-hiker) would ride in the back of the open truckbed. To slam Romeney for having his dog in a crate on top of the car is stupid! It is a right wing tactic that has been coopted by left wingers who have lost their way.

    We have serious problems with this country and they need serious people with serious solutions if we stand a chance of solving them. PLEASE, let’s talk about real reasons that Romney should not be elected, and leave the jokes to the late night talk show hosts, and Fox “News.”

    I hear YOU are on the next menu in Florida – probably AFTER a new Republican is elected.

He cant even fill the field at the stadium at his speech but the other guy who is not even a factor whom I wont say his name(no worries Yahoo) filled every stadium he spoke at. You tube it!
