NOT Just Obama’s Childhood — Obama Did More for Michael Vick Than the Canine Vicktims – the Passion of Obama

Remember this November… Obama expended more energy on behalf of Michael Vick than on Vick’s 100+ victims of dog-fighting and drowning.

More from the “more equal than others” presidency. If Vick was a third string bench-warming non-minority, do you think for a moment that Obama would have argued for leniency from the NFL?

According to a CBS News report, Eagles owner Lurie said Mr. Obama was “passionate about it,” adding that the president said “it’s never a level playing field for prisoners when they get out of jail. And he was happy that we did something on such a national stage that showed our faith in giving someone a second chance after such a major downfall.”

If dogs could talk, what would Bo say?

Regarding the latter, had this been perpetrated in a deep red state like Texas, no doubt that Obama would have politically leveraged this to the hilt.

Perhaps these guys should reconsider their assessment.

Tigers and Lions and Bears, Oh My… on the President’s Plate

Well… not quite. But there was dog, snake, grasshopper and tiger!

Eaten willingly.  Journaled in his autobiography… without regret:

“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.” Chapter Two, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance.

Listen:

Was dog jerky served at the Beer Summit? That would be a teachable moment, no?
