Chihuahua Chimichanga?

In her piece for the Washington Post, Kathleen Parker kept up the Left's attack on the Romneys having placed the family dog Seamus on the roof of their car during a vacation trip in 1983. Unlike Jake Tapper or The Daily Caller and countless others, Parker did not seem to think that Obama's admission that he ate dog while living in Indonesia was worth mentioning in her column.

In President Barack Obama's memoir "Dreams From My Father",Obama writes about eating dog meat while he lived with his stepfather in Indonesia.

"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."

Democrats claim that referring to what Obama may have eaten as a child is a low blow. I'd hardly call the Democrats' attack on Romney and his dog story from 1983 as taking the high road. has posted a list of Tweets giving recipes from Obama's dog meat cookbook;
Chihuahua Chimichanga, German Shephard's Pie, Terrieryaki, Chicken Poodle Soup, and Ramen Poodles being some of my favorites.

The Obama campaign started this dog fight. They should have kept to the really important and relevant issues.

Maybe I should have titled this post "Obama Woks his Dog".
