Obama dog meat extravaganza: Rush Limbaugh freaks out

barack-obama.jpgRush Limbaugh is mad at President Barack Obama for "trying to make hay" out of the Mitt Romney dog scandal. Three decades ago, Romney put the family dog in a carrier and strapped it to the roof of their car. He's firing back by pointing out that Obama admitted to eating dog meat in his biography.

"This makes me really, really uncomfortable," Limbaugh said on his radio show. "You've probably heard the outrage -- the Romneys putting their dog on the roof of their car in an enclosed kennel back in 1983 and heading down the highway, which apparently is a fact so horrible, the Democrats have created a website and a fundraising organization around this. Meanwhile, the Obamas are showing their love for dogs."

"As I say, this makes me extremely uncomfortable. But it's got to be discussed because Obama's trying to make hay out of the Romneys putting their beloved dog on the roof of the car in a kennel. And now Obama, in his own autobiography, writes of having eaten dog." You can check out the full transcript here.

In the book "Dreams of My Father," Obama talks about eating dog meat. "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."

Guys, weigh in here. Which side are you on? Obama? Limbaugh? The dogs?
