What does Obama call Romney’s dog? Meals on WheelsObama has been “hoist with his own petard”, to recall Shakespeare’s phrase. How apropos. I’m getting a big kick out of the way the Democrat’s cruelty to dogs smear against Romney has boomeranged to smash them squarely in their collective head.
If I had a dog, it would look like the dog Obama ate*
Recap: on a family car trip, Romney placed their dog on the car’s roof in a secured dog carrier fitted with a wind shield. Word from the Romney family is that not only did the dog do fine, the dog liked it. This would come as no surprise to any sentient being who would have observed that dogs love to stick their heads out of car windows at high speeds, something that has always amazed me. But the Obama campaign Democrat brain trust seems somehow to have missed ever seeing such a thing.

And of course, since Obama can’t run on his record by a long shot, all they can do is dredge up 30 year old tiny stories like this one in a desperate and surely pathetic attempt to gain traction with inattentive and easily fooled voters – i.e., the kind the Democrat controlist elite depends on for votes but whom they secretly despise.
Harry Truman: if you want a friend in Washington, get a dog. Good thing Obama wasn’t around then.
Well, not only does turn out that the Romney dog loved the rooftop carrier, but that Obama wrote about eating dog as a child with his Muslim step-father in Indonesia in his memoir “Dreams From My Father.” The Obama Smear Brain Trust Missed that one too – obviously no one actually read, or at least remembered, Obama’s book.
Perhaps we should refer to the President as Bark ObamaAmidst all this humor, David Goldman sees (link) a deeper, and longer-lasting meaning:
What a careful reader will take away from Barack Obama’s memoir “Dreams From My Father” is not only that the president used to eat dog meat, but more importantly, that he identifies with dog-eaters. He wants us to understand that he is one of them.... [T]here is something far more visceral, more existential to the president’s dislike of the United States, and that arises from his early residence in the Third World, and his identification with the people of the Third World whose lives are disrupted by the creative destruction that America has unleashed.
It really isn’t unfair at all to bring Obama’s canine consumption to public attention. The president isn’t really one of us. He’s a dog-eater. He tells the story in his memoir to emphasize that viscerally, Obama identifies with the Third World of his upbringing more than with the America of his adulthood. It is our great misfortune to have a president who dislikes our country at this juncture in our history.The bottom line is that for the Obama team, the Romney canine-on-the-roof smear is one dog that won’t hunt.
