“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 (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy),” the president wrote. “Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.” (Dreams From My Father)
After his mother married Soetoro, Obama lived in Indonesia from 1967 until 1971, from roughly the age of 6 through 10.
I’m thinking obama probably ate more snake and grasshopper than dog…..yum crunchy…..since he seems to have taken on the attributes of the snake. But he does like his hot dogs.
The democrats started this dog war by harping on Romney’s dog travelling on top of his car. Now they get it back and it looks foolish. How long will it be before they insist that the republicans started it and they need to stop? It’s not as much fun, is it, when you get what you dish out?
And if you don’t think the MSM is biased in favor of obama, watch and see how many times Diane Sawyer brings up “obama eats dog meat” as she asked the Romney’s about their dog.

“”It is now abundantly clear that the image of Barack Obama sold to the American electorate was tightly edited, air-brushed, and exaggerated. He has worn a series of masks — eloquent orator, brilliant scholar, centrist, and literary sensation.” [Thomas Lifson]
The new book by Chris Andersen called “Portrait of an American Marriage” about the Obama marriage didn’t seem to be anything I would be interested in. I don’t find their marriage very interesting, but there seems to be some other things in the book that I do find compelling.
The American Thinker has something written today that Dreams of My Father was produced, basically, by a ghostwriter – namely Bill Ayers. I read a little something about this before the election, but it was all covered up. It’s getting a little bit harder for the “fringe” press and media to provide cover.
Now that kids and private citizens are doing the job of investigative reporters, the New York Times has hired someone to read conservative blogs and listen to conservative radio to try to make sure they are not blind-sided as they were with the ACORN story and the Van Jones story. I thought that was what Media Matters was for. Oh, that’s right, they don’t tell the truth. Pretty funny. In fact, hilarious. They won’t release the name of said person. Undercover, I guess. 🙂
The mask has just about slipped completely off, but who does it reveal? That is the question. I’m afraid to know.
But Thomas Lifson’s article begins:
It is now abundantly clear that the image of Barack Obama sold to the American electorate was tightly edited, air-brushed, and exaggerated. He has worn a series of masks — eloquent orator, brilliant scholar, centrist, and literary sensation. All of these masks are coming off as he copes with a job for which image will not suffice. For instance, hiding behind the eloquent orator mask is a guy who says “uhh” a lot when he is winging it, and who makes lots of factual and grammatical mistakes.
Now, thanks to Jack Cashill, the literary mask has been removed. Obama is a literary pretender. Case closed. The evidence is overwhelming that Bill Ayers ghost-wrote Dreams from my Father, the book which established Obama’s pose as a brilliant writer (and therefore a fine mind, in the estimation of many).
But according to Jack Cashill of the American Thinker Obama may not be able to take too much credit for the book:
Obama boasted in Virginia last year, “I’ve written two books,” he told a crowd of students and teachers. ““I actually wrote them myself.”
The media should be able to protect his reputation among the willfully blind but don’t expect to hear Obama make comparable boasts in the near future.
