Back in January David Axelrod, Obama's advisor, tweeted “How loving owners transport their dogs,” along with a picture of Barack and Bo, the Obama dog. That tweet along with continued criticism of Romney has sparked a virtual on-line 'dog war' thanks to the Daily Caller's post on Obama's Indonesian dog-eating days (excerpt from his book Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance).
“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.”
Yeah, I know, he was a young boy and kids don't always get to choose what they do or don't eat, but Westerners aren't into dog meat and it's probably something he should have kept to himself. And if you're going to shove it, expect to get shoved back, and that shoving has come from the conservative blogosphere.
Naturally many took to the twittersphere:
