BuzzFeed asked Dogs Against Romney founder Scott Crider what he made of the furious conservative campaign last week to answer his charges against Romney with what many see as an equally absurd attack: That Obama ate dog as a boy in Indonesia.
I viewed the push-back as a desperate move to try to blunt the impact the dog-on-roof story is having on Romney. No one holds Obama accountable for what was fed to him by his parents as a 6-year-old in Indonesia. If Obama had chosen to eat dog as an adult, in America, and told everyone the dog enjoyed being eaten, Romney would have an argument.
