Apparently the canine world has gotten the word about the President’s culinary habits.

  1. that is so damian

  2. Should I post my exclusive photo of a bunch of gay people fleeing from a scissor-wielding Mitt Romney?

    Leviticus (870be5)

  3. Why does he have to stand behind a podium bearing the Seal of the Office of the President?

    Do his political advisers worry that voters might forget he’s the president? Is that because he does not behave like one?

    AZ Bob (1c9631)

  4. That’s a real look of fear there. Quite a shot by the photographer!

    Patterico (feda6b)

  5. Should I post my exclusive photo of a bunch of gay people fleeing from a scissor-wielding Mitt Romney?

    Sure. Done right, that could be pretty funny.

  9. Leviticus, how would we know they’re gay? Do they all have rainbow halos?

    (I swear to God I thought that Newsweek cover was a parody)

    Kevin M (bf8ad7)

  10. I love the teleprompters. It adds so much to the down-home flavor of this event.

    Kevin M (bf8ad7)

  11. Mine has a ign, so I’m pretty sure.

    Sarahw (b0e533)

  12. Sign.

    Sarahw (b0e533)

  13. Hilarious. Liberals seem especially susceptible to the power of ridicule, and the dog theme is especially good.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  14. Did you do this, P? Whoever it was, well done.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  15. Too Funny!

    See, dog’s can discern what, and who, is in their best interest.

    AD-RtR/OS! (8f3829)

  16. If you focus with just one eye you can just about make out the message on the Teleprompter off a car grill reflection.

    Looks like “Don’t Eat the Dog!” to me.

    East Bay Jay (a5dac7)

  17. I like picturing posts like this as Bush (or Obama as a Republican) and being posted on Democratic Underground.

    There would be a thread a mile long saying things like “Keep this maniac away from dogs!!!” and “He only named him Bo to remind him not to eat it!” and they would be dead serious.

    Noodles (3681c4)

  18. I think the hilarious part is that he is standing in someone’s driveway, and he has to have his teleprompters.

    Just as I found hilarious the complaints from India that the Indian parliament hall never needed teleprompters before his arrival for a speech there.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  19. That is funny SPQR. Is the teleprompter shopped in or was it really there?

    I wonder if Obama said anything to the guy about his gas guzzling Jeep or if he mocked him for using his flag as a “substitute for true patriotism”?

    Noodles (3681c4)

  20. Did you do this, P? Whoever it was, well done.

    Not me. A reader sent it in.

    Patterico (feda6b)

  21. Noodles,

    Here’s the White House transcript of President Obama’s remarks in Reno, where this occurred. The podium and teleprompter are real. Here are photos from the event and this report mentions the podium in front of the Reno family’s home.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  22. This is funny, nice job guys.

    Ipso Fatso (7434b9)

  23. No way. I thought the t- prompter was shopped. Oh, that’s tragic.

    Sarahw (b0e533)

  24. A friend on another blog came up with this;

    narciso (1c125b)

  25. He TOTUSed in a freakin driveway ?!?!?!?!

    JD (0d91a1)

  26. SarahW,

    My apologies. The podium is real but the teleprompter apparently was photoshopped because I don’t see it in the real photos.

    I should be more careful, and I’m sorry for misleading everyone.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  27. All the recipes I have for dog are stew with wild herbs. Any others?

    nk (875f57)

  28. It’s a shame I no longer live in Reno. I’d have stopped by and eaten a hot dog.

    Chuck Bartowski (0072e5)

  29. 27:

    Oh, and personally insulting someone in English or Spanish, equally Klassy… Just FYI

    Alex (b07679)

  30. No teleprompter? Pretty risky move for the president. I wonder if his campaign staff urged him to re-think that before stepping out on a ledge like that.

    Dana (4eca6e)

  31. Is an over-reliance on ‘prompters a sign of early-onset Alzheimer’s?

    AD-RtR/OS! (8f3829)

  32. Oh, and personally insulting someone in English or Spanish, equally Klassy… Just FYI

    To what is the clown referring to?

    JD (0d91a1)

  33. This from the Dale Carnegie website:

    Dale Carnegie’s Public Speaking Mastery courses will teach you sophisticated techniques that will quickly turn you into a polished public speaking professional.

    There appear to still be some openings on Saturday mornings in June. Or would that interfere with the golf schedule?

    elissa (672288)

  34. Chuck Bartowski, as a former Reno resident, do you think it’s peculiar that only a handful of people showed up to see the president? And in a swing state?

    Dana (4eca6e)

  35. To me, JD, after he attacked ellisa.

    nk (875f57)

  36. Okay, it’s not real. I’m pretty sure there are a few Kool-Aid/kissing booth jokes in there.

    Noodles (3681c4)

  37. The problem, is he’s gone into Full Costanza mode,
    in Reno, second only to South Florida in the foreclosure crisis, his encantations don’t work, prompting an Inigo Monotya response,

    narciso (1c125b)

  38. Does Reno and the rest of Nevada have an economy to make up for all of the people who didn’t go to Vegas because of Obama’s shaming?

    I guess that what happens in Reno doesn’t necessarily stay in Reno.

    MD in Philly (3d3f72)

  39. Obama fan and contributor George Lopez likes to use the term “mas puto” for conservatives… and called GWB this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3R1iZvqSZI

    mas puto means something like: the biggest faggot ever.

    “bleeping puto” means something like… well you’ll get it… but then again you can hide him behind the shield of “comedy”

    SteveG (e27d71)

  40. Ah George Lopez who cheated on his wife, after she gave him a kidney, that’s like Spanish for John Edwards, no.

    narciso (1c125b)

  41. she got the house in toluca lake

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  42. Chuck Bartowski, as a former Reno resident, do you think it’s peculiar that only a handful of people showed up to see the president? And in a swing state?

    No. Reno, like most of northern Nevada, is very Republican. It’s only in Vegas that you see the Dems show up. But Vegas is a great deal bigger than Reno.

    Chuck Bartowski (0072e5)

  43. Does Reno and the rest of Nevada have an economy to make up for all of the people who didn’t go to Vegas because of Obama’s shaming?

    No, Reno is hurting badly. It was hit very hard by the recession, and it might be another 10 years before housing prices recover there. Unemployment is still very high there.

    That’s why I left. I knew the company I was working for was circling the drain, and there aren’t a lot of tech jobs in Reno. So, I knew I’d be leaving the area; just didn’t know that such a great opportunity in Austin would come my way.

    Chuck Bartowski (0072e5)

  44. Don’t get on Romney about the haircut and don’t get on Obama on the dog eating. By the way, properly cooked, dog is good eating. The trouble with Indonesian dog is that they cook dogs that die of old age – that is why Obama complained about it being tough. Native American’s cooked young fat dogs – without refrigeration or neighborhood supermarkets, to throw a puppy in the pot when unexpected visitors arrived was quite proper.

    Michael M. Keohane (4c3b02)

  45. Liz’s got some good recipes handed down from her native American ancestors, I’ll bet.

    elissa (672288)

  46. no wonder the Native Americans had such sucky karma

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  47. The American Indian recipes are the ones I have, Michael. Does the buffalo hide pot, at just boiling point, add flavor?

    nk (875f57)

  48. If you want to there, happyfeet,

    They were a neolithic culture, hunters/gatherers, always on the ragged edge of starvation.

    nk (875f57)

  49. Now THAT is funny!

    a personal note… Well… I went and damn done it
    I bought a new Fiat Abarth, dark gray, red leather interior and sunroof.

    And I’m digging it as I learn all about it. I. AM. STOKED.

    But don’t know whether my wife will be, as she’s in SoCal visiting family… back tomorrow. Worst case scenario as I see it? She’ll get over it… at least I hope she will.

    Colonel Haiku (2747ca)

  50. Smart move with the red leather, Col. The blood will not be quite as noticible when she “discusses” this with you.

    elissa (672288)

  51. Something are like Barnabas Collins even after the stake;

    narciso (1c125b)

  52. If the wife doesn’t like the car, hoping she is at least in agreement on the politics? http://www.upi.com/Odd_News/2012/05/09/Woman-runs-over-husband-in-voting-dispute/UPI-74401336604674/

    JD (b07679)

  53. Bought new FIAT,
    So disappointed,
    J-Lo not factory accessory!

    AD-RtR/OS! (8f3829)

  54. I could not fit in a Sentra, so I doubt I could fit in an Abarth or a Smart. (I am not fat, I am tall.) But there’s nothing wrong with small cars. I was riding motorcycles for eight years before I bought my first car. I think Mrs. Haiku will love it, Colonel.

    nk (875f57)

  55. I’m still trying to find out if the homeowners provided the podium and presidential seal or Obama brings a portable podium & presidential seal with him wherever he goes. Also was there a teleprompter hidden by that screen in front of the podium.

    max (131bc0)

  56. So, it was the Democrat she wanted to vote for. Surprise, Surprise.

    PatAZ (032efa)

  57. a personal note… Well… I went and damn done it
    I bought a new Fiat Abarth, dark gray, red leather interior and sunroof.

    I bet the wife will be overcome with how sexy you look behind the wheel, Col. Haiku. Red leather interior, speed, and a sunroof. How could she not?
    (but just in case, call a friend to hang out at the house when you break the news. A witness is always good to have). :)

    Dana (4eca6e)

  58. That was not me.

    JD (318f81)

  59. Red leather interiors have always appealed to me.

    Dustin (330eed)

  60. Last Fiat anyone in my family owned was my dad in the mid 1960s. Emergency brake failed and it rolled down the driveway and totaled itself against a tree.

    Fix It Again Tony!

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  61. The look on Obama’s face just screams out, “Those dogs are fast!”

    Fortunately the campaign bus, Rolling Plunder, hit one on the way out of town that wasn’t so they had a cookout in the desert.

    Steve (90e0d3)

  62. I bet the wife will be overcome with how sexy you look behind the wheel, Col. Haiku. Red leather interior, speed, and a sunroof. How could she not?
    (but just in case, call a friend to hang out at the house when you break the news. A witness is always good to have).

    Thanks, Dana. It replaces an ’07 350Z and I don’t think she’ll be too happy about that.

    Dustin… me, too. Red leather in a car with the right paint job is way cool.

    daley… Fine Italian Automotive Technology, dude… I also have an ’81 Fiat X1/9 with 198K miles on it. Just gotta maintain ’em and not treat ’em like a household appliance.

    Colonel Haiku (94c178)

  63. hey, nk… I’m 6’1″ and this one fits good. The Z was way fast (3 speeding tickets in ’09), but a car doesn’t have to be blazing fast to be fun. And Italian cars have personality… a soul. I know that sounds funny, but no other way to describe it.

    All the rest are just reliable transportation, lol.

    Colonel Haiku (94c178)

  64. Colonel, it is always more fun to drive a slow car fast rather than a fast car slow.

    Gazzer (152137)

  65. Bought new FIAT,
    So disappointed,

    — What, no heated bucket seats and nice headlights?

    Icy (011ff5)

  66. Surely, the homeowners were gracious enough to offer the president a little hair of the dog that he bit; no?

    Icy (011ff5)

  67. Sadly, the president’s Final Four picks for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show did NOT pan out, as “breakfast”, “lunch”, “dinner” and “late-nite snack” were all breeds that failed to make the final cut.

    Icy (011ff5)

  68. nk : Buffalo hide pot was Plains style, the Apache used baked clay pots but stewing was the preferred method. Two ways of cooking with the buffalo hide – if you were careful and kept the water level high, you could cook over an open fire but to put heated stones in pot until water boils was safer. Some dried corn and wild onions and you had a nice quick meal for unexpected guests or where the mighty Nimrod struck out.

    Michael M. Keohane (4c3b02)

  69. Well you know that homosexuals are steering clear of Romney rallies…. since he’s a known sociopathic homophobic torturer.

    tye (3e4f43)

  70. Thank you, Michael. It was 43 years ago, I cannot remember either the title or the author, but I read about the hide pot always cooking outside the teepee in a true story about two Mexican boys whom the Comanches spared and raised as their own. The older a bit harshly until he earned coup, defeating three enemies barehanded. He went back home and wrote about it.

    nk (875f57)

  71. Because we all know long hair equals hohosexuality. “tye” relentlessly pushes the thinkregress memes of the day.

    JD (0d91a1)

  72. 3-because he is the president

    tye (3e4f43)

  73. No, Lauber was like a Holden Caulfield type, ask Maxwell he held him down,

    narciso (1c125b)

  74. Where I was at, Addison and Broadway, the gay look was perfect grooming — short haircut, clean shave, white teeth, shiny shoes. Dang it, that was me, but no gay guy would hit on me. Heterophobes. 😉

    nk (875f57)

  75. “tye” – he likes to remind people of that, may e he should start acting like a President, quit using his office to bully private citizens, and otherwise demean the presidency.

    JD (0d91a1)

  76. Can you imagine? Twenty-five thousand years ago, we brought wolf puppies to our caves to raise for food. Now we wear silk, fly above the speed of sound, and talk about gay marriage. And still eating wolf puppies.

    nk (875f57)

  77. I eat beef but I wouldn’t drive with a cow bungee-tied to the roof of my vehicle.

    tye (3e4f43)

  78. that would be impractical anyway I think

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  79. Being born in 1938, I was in high school during the 1950’s. Long hair was not a sign of homosexuality but of rebellion. It is a classic mistake to assume today’s standards when evaluating the actions of people in the past. It was bullying but not anti-gay. Anti-rebell, yes.

    Michael M. Keohane (4c3b02)

  80. As pointed out earlier, Maxwell saw no need to bring up that tale when recalling his days at Cranbrook, maybe because he was ashamed, or maybe
    because it didn’t happen,

    After than unsourced drek published by Random House,
    and subsequently dumped in public libraries, I’m skeptical about any such sudden insights aren’t you,

    narciso (1c125b)

  81. It is also impractical for an eight year old to refuse to eat his lunch.

    tye (3e4f43)

  82. That’s where you want the cow, tye. Only idiots would tie it on their hoods. Now with a smaller animal, like a deer, http://krites.blogspot.com/2012/05/just-as-long-as-its-sharp.html field dressing it would be enough. A cow, you would need to quarter just to be able to lift it up there. And, you’re right, bungee cords would not work. You need rope.

    nk (875f57)

  83. what sucks is you know they’re just gonna be hungry later

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  84. I see tye is still a slanderer.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  85. It is also impractical for an eight year old to refuse to eat his lunch.

    Since when? Kids eat when they want to. Just have food in the house.

  86. For historical accuracy the gays fleeing from Mitt Scissorhands would have to have long blonde hair for historical accuracy.

    Andy (a8a53a)

  87. I just don’t understand why the lefties want to talk about same-sex marriage, and dogs on cars, and Ann Romney’s resume, when their Fearless Leader Obama has accrued such a stellar record of economic growth.

    Elephant Stone (0ae97d)

  88. Virtual dogs at Columbus Circle in New York:

    http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/columbus-circle-subway-ad-a-dog-gone-joy-riders-article-1.1077512?localLinksEnabled=false

    Actually inside the subway station underneath about 57th Street and 8th Avenue.

    In a passageway, there’s a storefront where there’s now a screen that’s 64-feet long and 6-feet high.

    You toss yellow tennis balls (real ones? It turns out no) that digital dogs retrieve. It’s an advertisement for the Purina dog food company.

    Tapia picked up and then launched a tennis ball. It bounced across the grass. A small dog, yipping happily, trotted after it and brought it back toward Tapia with its tail wagging. /

    but I have to be strong you can’t just be bringing wuppers home

    Oh, yeahhhhhh!

    Colonel Haiku (b12c25)

  92. you sounded like the Kool-Aid man just then

    happyfeet (3c92a1)

  93. Colonel: good luck with the Fiat, but, personally, the Italians, like the French, are known for their styling and cooking, not for their engineering.

    When dealing with engineering, stick with “Orientals”, Germans, and Americans, in that order.

    There’s a classic joke (I’ve also heard a much longer version of it, involving like 12 nationalities):

    Heaven and Hell are just like Earth, except that, in Heaven and Hell, you get assigned your job based on your nation of origin.

    In Heaven, the Germans are the engineers, the French are the cooks, and the English are the policemen.

    In Hell, the French are the engineers, the English are the cooks, and the Germans are the policemen.

    😀

    In the longer version, the Italians are the engineers in Hell.

    Nonetheless — good luck with the car — may you enjoy your experience with it regardless of my own knowledge.
