So, just what is the big deal about eating a dog?
Apparently no one wants to discuss real issues and differences in ideology between Democrats and Republicans, so we’re going to snipe back and forth about who mistreats dogs more – Mitt Romney or Barack Obama.
Romney had his dog ride in a carrier on top of the car. It’s probably not something I would have done, but it’s important to keep things in perspective. I see so-called “dog-lovers” all the time doing things that put their pets at risk. When you’re driving down the road with Fido on your lap, what’s going to happen when you wreck and your airbag inflates? How will it feel to have dog pancake on your chest?
Obama on the other hand admits to eating dog when he was little. He was in a foreign country and was too young to have any preconceived ideas about whether dogs were acceptable for a main course. Again, it’s important to keep things in perspective. In the USA, most dogs are our pets, and therefore we wouldn’t consider eating them. In a country where dogs are classified more as livestock than pet, the idea of dog meat isn’t any different than beef.
Obama’s past dog buffet isn’t the cause of his failed presidency, his liberal socialist policies are. Romney’s dog carrier incident won’t determine his success or failure, his adherence to conservative principles will.
