Diane Sawyer Goes to the Dogs

Jack Kemp

In her ABC interview of Mitt Romney, Diane Sawyer asked Mitt Romney if he was “too rich to relate?” You can see the video at:

Forbes Magazine points out that Ms. Sawyer “made $12 million in 2005.” It is realistic to assume that she is probably making more today. So, Diane, tell us what it’s like to buy bulk items at the Costco store…

Diane Sawyer also asked about some incident when the Romneys let their dog ride on the roof of their car decades ago, as this was some kind of cruelty. To my shock and surprise, Ms. Sawyer has not memorized Dreams from my Father because Obama’s autobiography has this quote, now researched by The Daily Caller:

“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.”

The Daily Caller followed that quote with this delicious remark:

Hey, whatever you have to tell yourself, libs. Say what you want about Romney, but at least he only put a dog on the roof of his car, not the roof of his mouth. And whenever you bring up the one, we’re going to bring up the other.

We wait Ms. Sawyer interviewing the president on the taste of dog. While the Obama campaign is trying to portray Romney as Thurston Howell III, we see that Obama could be described as Thurston Howl for his culinary tastes.

Readers may also recall Velma Hart, the woman at the town hall meeting with Obama in September 2010 who said she had joked with her husband that “they were well past the hot dogs and beans era of their lives” and that “frankly it’s starting to knock on our door and that might be where we’re headed again.” You can watch her remarks on YouTube. By Thanksgiving of that year, Velma Hart had lost her federal government job.

Perhaps Ms. Hart is right and Mr. Obama, with his taste for dog, will invite her to a political dinner where they serve REAL hot dogs and not the figurative ones Americans are used to eating. It would bring a whole new meaning to act of carrying leftovers home in a “doggie bag.”

Doggone it, but Diane Sawyer has been shown to be politically selective in her criticism. But if unemployment rates continues at current levels under the Obama Wreck-covery Plan, even those that voted for Obama in 2008 may have to “chose” between eating their dog(s) or just eating dog food. It could become the Twenty-First Century Democratic Party definition of “Pro-Choice
