Dog fight

Dog fight

Oh, sure it’s not as important as the future of mankind, or the debt cliff Obama is driving us off.

But since Democrats are in full Seimus on the Roof mode, why not point out:

Iowahawk has a million of ’em.

Mockery is all Obama has actually earned in his life.

Joan Of Argghh | April 18, 2012 at 11:31 am

What’s Obama’s idea of a pet groomer? The butcher!

Kevin Dujan called this “dog-gate” tactic back in February. I thought he was crazy, but once again he was spot on in his predictions.

Of course, when he made this prediction I’m sure he didn’t know about the dog eating comment by Obama.

Did Obama liked his dog deep fried or broiled? Hmmm….

    American Energy Independence,
    the need to modernize government to match the modern world,
    and how a campaign about “garbage” helps Obama.

    The Concatenated Canine Controversy helps Obama because it’s a distraction from what they’re doing. It’s a clown show at the Obama-Axelrod Circuses.

    Of course, it helps Romney too, because it’s less embarrassing to defend Romney putting the dog on the roof than it is to defend Romney’s political & economic record.

    Newt and a dog? When Newt was a youngster, his dog fell through the ice and Newt went to save the dog, fell through the ice as well, the dog scrambled out, and Newt said the lesson he learned while under the ice was was not to panic, because you get stuck under the ice and drown. Newt is the man for president.

As one commenter at HotAir said last night (to paraphase)…

Romney actually gave Seamus the final say on where he rode for the trip.

Seamus said, “Roof, roof!”

The fact that Barry ate dog is as relevant to the campaign as Mitten’s putting a dog on top of the car in a crate. Of course, to the dogs in question it’s very relevan. One’s trip ended with a meal and a nice dog bed. The other’s trip ended in a toilet.

    persecutor in reply to Jim. | April 18, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    Or one ended with a meal and a nice dog bed, and one ended as a meal on a nice bed of rice.

The narrative is now dogs??

    Tamminator in reply to Scorpio51. | April 18, 2012 at 12:06 pm

    The narrative is always about how to obfuscate of the real issues.
    That’s how the media rolls, baby!
    And boy, is this one gonna backfire.

    I applaud the right wing blogosphere for hammering back with humor.

I understand the point but, regardless, this is all so frustrating. This election should be about bigger things than dogs (on the roof or on the plate) or tax returns (heck, our current Treasury Secretary is proof that tax returns don’t matter to Democrats!).

Today I saw a stupid meme that showed a picture of Romney which said “How can I run the country if I can’t file my taxes on time?” Romney likely has complicated investments and hasn’t received all the information by tax day and legally applied for an automatic extension. But sound bites sadly work on a brainwashed electorate, even while our country flies headlong towards a debt cliff, as Prof. Jacobson points out above. This is why my handle is “Shakes Head Often.”

    “”Today I saw a stupid meme that showed a picture of Romney which said “How can I run the country if I can’t file my taxes on time?””

    Fight back. Talk about the WH staff that owes taxes, Tim Geitner, etc. etc. etc. There isn’t an issue that they could attack a conservative on, on which they haven’t delivered far more fodder for consumption.

    NewEnglandDevil in reply to ShakesheadOften. | April 18, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    “”Today I saw a stupid meme that showed a picture of Romney which said “How can I run the country if I can’t file my taxes on time?””

    Thinking about this more, an even better tactic is to flip the issue and make it relevent to our arguments! The time and effort taken to file taxes reflects the complexity of the tax code; therefore, let’s make the tax code simpler and flatter, with fewer deductions and without Big Government picking winners and losers by offering targeted tax credits or deductions. A simpler tax code with lower tax rates will also increase participation and reduce tax scofflaws, along with promoting growth, both of which increase economic growth, and that means JOBS! My favorite three letter word!

    Another tactic would be to note the WH hypocrisy, pointing out their lack of payments, and to question how much we could reduce the deficit and reduce general indebtedness if the WH staff and other gov’t officials paid their own bills? Lots of avenues to take this down that shift the focus from the personal (Romney) and either re-personalize it in the person of Obama/Geitner/staff or direct the focus at simplifying the tax code, promoting growth, deficit and debt reduction, etc.

      ShakesheadOften in reply to NewEnglandDevil. | April 18, 2012 at 1:37 pm

      Of course, that’s way too long for a bumpersticker or a tweet, so clearly this argument will fail.

      Republicans must ask if the White House aides who are delinquent in federal income tax payments are going to have THEIR passports pulled or will they be issued famous Obama Exemptions.

Non-issue. It would be a good thing if the story makes some people stop and wonder just how exotic Obama’s background might be and if it’s worthy of some consideration. It is sad when a story like this trumps 15% unemployment, Fast and Furious, and Soros’ connections to this administration.

ScorpyonSting | April 18, 2012 at 12:12 pm

Perhaps Obama chose Chow-Chow Mein!

People that say Obama doesn’t understand America–it’s culture, it’s history, it’s values–and is in fact hostile to it…

…are probably just the priviledged 1%ers that never worked a day in their life–

….and never at dog.

MICHELLE OBAMA: “Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | April 18, 2012 at 12:55 pm

They really wanted to keep the Seamus story alive because its easy for simpletons to grasp. You know, they paint the picture that the mean old Republican guy is so uncaring that he even hates puppies.

But now that we know Obama at least once turned Fido into lunch, let’s see how many times the media asks Obama how he liked Fido prepared. BBQ? Smothered in gravy? Maybe cooked rare with a little teriyaki sauce? My guess is that a grand total of zero questions will be asked of Obama about how he best liked man’s best friend served to him as dinner.

And since the media does not want to embarrass Obama about his canine culinary delights, it probably also means they will suddenly lose interest in attempting to embarass Willard with more questions about how he took Seamus on a bad car ride 30 years ago. You know. To be unbiased and all that.

I will be surprised if the lamestream media ever mentions Seamus again.

P.S. I like Geraghty’s tweet that went something like, “Pardon me, would you have any Greyhound Poupon, sir?” under the hashtag #ObamaDogRecipes.

9thDistrictNeighbor | April 18, 2012 at 1:05 pm

The only reason I sometimes head over to NRO anymore is to attempt to wreak havoc with their daily polls. Today they have a poll question on the propriety of eating dogs. With 1540 votes, 44 percent of NRO readers say that eating dog is no problem.

I suppose we just need to get with the program…jump on board the bandwagon….

There are voters to whom this matters more than the price of a pound of ground beef, a gallon of milk or a gallon of gasoline. Can’t wait to see what this year’s October Surprise will be.

This doesn’t make any sense. You want me to believe a gazillionaire drove somewhere in his car for family vaca? Right. Why didn’t he fly the family dog on the charter, like the rest of his family, like the 0bamas? Didn’t they take Bo to the Cape?

Really, I don’t think I can stomach all these dog jokes.

Jokes about eating dog meat are really tasteless.

Is this issue going to hound the campaign?

So, is “dog-chow” what the dog eats, or when we eats the dog?

Must we now redefine “putting on the dog”? As in “I heard you were coming over, so I put on the dog; I dressed up and fixed Rover for dinner.”

Wait, no longer is “fixing” Rover mean Rover is now non-reproductive, it could be “I fixed Rover” is an answer to “What’s for dinner?”

Why aren’t these comments moderated?

If you woof dogs as much as I do, this is a shaggy tail that is continuing to grow legs and gives one paws to reflect. Have things gone fur enough? Does anyone have a haunch how long in the tooth must things grow before we we can finally whisker this into the poop-bag of history?

Perhaps the morning after, some hair-of-the-dog would be in order…

I’m sure if Romney’s dog could talk, he’d tell us that he’d take the roof of Romney’s car over O’s mouth any day.

Remember when pulling the wings off flies was considered a disgusting youthful activity? But eating dog? Does anyone know a single child, that if offered Fido, would gladly consume it? Oh! Different culture? And you ask why Obama doesn’t comprehend American culture and mores?

    Oh please….not that all of these don’t sound really yummy, but with Obummer in charge many of us will consider ourselves lucky if we can take a break from eating dog food from a can to enjoying a tasty casserole created from Mongrel Road Kill.

Speaking of dog food …

“And when talking about seniors, seniors love getting junk mail. It’s sometimes their only way of communicating or feeling like they’re part of the real world,” Reid continued.

Newt told Sean Hannity this afternoon that making the national conversation about dogs is just a distraction from the real issues. He didn’t think Romney should be engaging in it because it’s baloney!

Forgive me. This is just too gobsmacking good to let go.
Obama ate different animals including Fido, to obtain their “essence”. Sounds like a round earther to me. Dog is man’s best friend, right? Obama obviously only ingested dogs, very tribal dogs, with a very limited perspective/definition of “man”. Very exclusive, rather than inclusive. Eating “man’s best is as close to cannalibism as one can get. But AxelTurf tweets “(showing President Obama and his dog, Bo, riding in a car) “How loving owners transport their dogs,” Except when they’re “transporting” them through their Alimentary Canal. Right, Barry? What do the Ogabi junta use to pick their teeth?

Mark Anderson
The Obamas say the Romneys are out of touch. When Mitt and Ann go grocery shopping they often pick up a pound of ground round; When Michelle and Barack shop they take home a pound of ground hound

Obama ate dog because he believed he’d absorb the traits of the animals he ate.

Now he prone to humpin’ leg of the wealthy and dropping huge loads on America.

I do not believe Obama is muslim. At best the Farrakhan pseudo set.

It will be interesting to see how close muslim heads of state stand to him now that he has eaten dog. Whilst Muslims must indeed lie in the name of Allah – he should never have written about it. Double sin.

It is a shame lolo was a puncie city boy & did not take Stanley & Barack to the newly invaded Irian Jaya. Man they had real cannibals out there.

Midwest Rhino | April 18, 2012 at 9:24 pm

So Ann said Seamus loved riding on the roof, and only that once got sick … because he had eaten meat off the counter. So despite shooting shit once … Seamus still loved riding on top.

So first we hear Seamus was terrified … just like we heard Zimmerman tracked down and shot Martin because “he looks black”, and Martin was terrified.

So Seamus only got sick that once … ALL the other times he loved it. Did Seamus get sick that once only because he ate meat off the counter? Did Zimmerman actually love standing up for blacks, and tutoring them, but shot that once because he was getting the shit beat out of him?

Stay tuned … there is a lot of shit flying around … perhaps with the internet, truth will trump major media lies.

We’ll stop making #ObamaEatsDog jokes when Leno, Letterman & Stewart start.

I don’t get the whole fuss. What on earth is wrong with eating dog? Why is it worse than pork?

    BannedbytheGuardian in reply to Milhouse. | April 19, 2012 at 2:05 am

    Pigs & dogs can be more intelligent (& personable ) than people. Why don’t we eat the lower IQ people instead? Or the disabled -they can’t run very far -so easy to catch.

    I guess we just make choices – taste might help.

Pigs are more intelligent than dogs.

    Ok Millhouse . You go & start eating dog & don’t be shy -tell all your friends.

    You will either end up in prison or dead.
