    So, Romney's past is fair ground for attacks now, all the way back to when he was 6-10 years-old
    from HuffPo: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1433223.html

    In January, Obama campaign honcho David Axelrod tweeted a photo of Obama's dog, Bo, riding in the president's armored limousine, with the caption "How loving owners transport their dogs." On Tuesday evening, Romney campaign spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom retweeted Axelrod with the comment, "In hindsight, a chilling photo."

    Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt responded with a tweet questioning Fehrnstrom's decision to embrace the story from Obama's childhood: "What's the next attack @EricFerhn and the RNC will surface on a 6-10 year old?"
    Yep, they're all over the "Romney put dog in car top carrier for family trip.", But they don't care that Obama ATE dog.

    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). 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.

    I'm sure that dog was slaughtered humanely before it was cooked!

    Nope - they're crunchy when prepared correctly. Just like crickets. The nasty one is sauted earthworms.

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    Yea, a little salty too. Almost like eating a peanut. Haven't eaten earthworms though


    And to be fair, eating dog was part of the culture Obama grew up in. I don't like it, but hey, I'm not in the business of flaunting my way of life in front of other people.

    Look, I understand dietary restrictions, taboos, quirks, and the general bizarre varies from culture to culture. But unless the collapse of civilization occurs, and I am not a local warlord crushing all before me with tyrannical glee, I won't be eating bugs.

    Never know what you're missing.

    Earthworms are fair when they are deep fried.

    Sautéing just leaves too much natural juice.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
