Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, May 09, 2021

The night Obama was elected there was a truly sweet moment towards the end of his acceptance speech in which president-elect Obama it would only ever had a lone cat as a pet his entire life said that his long-suffering and courageous daughters would be getting the puppy they always wanted. Boe turn out to be a decent dog for the whole family. RIP

I remember some creeps tried to make it a big deal that Obama had never had a dog.

"Obama had never had a dog."

But he's had dog, though...

Sentinal you may have been fed dog as a kid as well.

Unlikely. I think I would have recognized the taste.

That would require you to have eaten it.

Indeed.

In fact it would have required you to eat it twice.

For your hypothesis to work, yes. At least twice, with at least one time being as a kid. But that did not happen. Unless I was retconned.

Yeah well you're the one claiming you would have recognized it so the question is did you?

No, I did not. So that disproves your theory.

Some people are easy to con.

The fact that you think you can remember and knew what was in everything you ate while a toddler means you are probably one of them.

Humans and dogs have such a wonderful and unique relationship.

Dogs are also the only non-primate animal that look people in the eyes. Other animals will make eye contact, but dogs purposely look for direction in people's eyes.

We need each other.

RIP Bo

WTF, dude? That's way too specific, unless you were actually there... I know my parents hung out with some skeevy people when I was really young, but... ----. Now that I think about it maybe they did feed me that dog and told me it was "venison". Poor Dusty.

I don't have to "be there" to know how the brain of a toddler works and how long before you are even aware of what's really going into your mouth.

But I did have 5 children and I was one myself. So in a sense I was "there".

There is a period when we are toddlers where we are blissfully unaware. I can look back into my own mind and see that our memories get a hazy the further back you go and we don't really remember most of what has happened around us anyway especially when we were toddlers. And the fact is we create a lot of memories to fill in the "blanks".

Seems there is some who remain blissfully unaware of how their own brains work even after they become adults.

This seems like a really weird way to justify a fantasy about what went into someone's mouth as a toddler, but whatever. Obama wasn't a toddler when he lived in Asia.
