Washington, Apr 18 (ANI): Barack Obama apparently had an odd past with the man's best friend.
The Daily Caller noted that in President Obama's best-selling memoir, "Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance," the president recalls being fed dog meat as a young boy in Indonesia with his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro.
"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)," the president wrote.
"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."
After his mother married Soetoro, Obama lived in Indonesia from 1967 until 1971, from about the age of 6 through 10.
The discovery that the president had eaten dog meat prompted wise-cracks on twitter (hashtag - #ObamaDogRecipes) and this tweet from Romney strategist Eric Fehrstrom, who re-tweeted Axelrod's original message with a different take on the picture of the president and Bo, ABC News reported
"@EricFehrn: In hindsight, a chilling photo," he wrote.
Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt tweeted in reply: "@BenLaBolt What's the next attack @EricFerhn and the RNC will surface on a 6-10 year old?" (ANI)
