Some meals are really memorable.
And a dog-eating President Obama is probably going to get dog tired of getting mocked for a dish he was served back when he was a little boy.
Now democrats and republicans seem to think they have ammunition for the Campaign 2012 dog wars.
After all those jokes about Mitt Romney putting his dog in a carrier on the roof of his car, now the joke is on President Obama...it's not a man bites dog story. It's a future president eats dog story.
No, not Bo...
A conservative website, the daily caller, dredged up an old quote from President Obama's memoir, “Dreams From My Father,” about his diet as a boy in Indonesia.
Now Romney supporters could say "at least I didn't eat my dog."
Overnight hash tag Obama dog recipes became a twitter sensation...recipes such as golden fried retriever, chicken poodle soup, eggs rover easy.
One conservative blogger contributed a 4-course meal...great Danish, beagle with lox and cream cheese, collie-flower and german shepherd pie.
Gleeful Romney supporters fired off jokes. "What does Obama call a dog riding on the roof of a car? Fast food." "What does Barack Obama call a dog show? An international buffet."
Even the campaigns got into the act. Weeks ago top Obama aide David Axelrod tweeted this photo of Bo riding with the president in his limo with the caption "how loving owners transport their dogs." Now a Romney advisor has retaliated with a revised caption..."in hindsight, a chilling photo." it had some commentators in stitches...
Mitt Romney himself commented..."I think this campaign is gonna’ ultimately be about jobs not dogs."
Maybe ultimately, but on this day it was a dog-eat-dog campaign.
