    I guess what we have here is an organization that's just stupid and doesn't know what everyone else knew about Obama. Okay, fair enough. We'll call them stupid.
    The rest of the country know it? This really is something that came out of Obama's book. How could the rest of the country know it if most people haven't read his book? Furthermore, why do you keep ignoring that Obama ate dog 35+ years ago? Jesus, it's like you believe he did that even as recently as 5 years ago. You're desperate.

    I don't care when Obama ate dog or that he ate dog. I'm not part of the organization that actively campaigns against the consumption of dog. That would be PETA.

    But you're right, it was a well kept secret that he ate dog. Nobody knew. Except everyone. Well, and PETA.

    Apparently you do as you keep referring to it as a sign of PETA's hypocrisy. Again, my question is as follows: Say PETA did know that Obama ate dog 35 years ago, were they supposed to say something on the matter even though he never brought it up during a campaign? What were they supposed to do? Ask him apologize for something he did nearly 40 years ago?

    I'm not part of the organization that actively campaigns against the consumption of dog. That would be PETA.

    But you're right, it was a well kept secret that he ate dog. Nobody knew. Except everyone. Well, and PETA.
    Everyone knew? You literally had to have read his book to find out about this, are you saying everyone was reading Obama's book in 1995? He was practically unknown until 10 years ago. What's really funny here is that when Obama did harm an animal in the 21st century PETA did criticize him for it. You keep ignoring that fact, why?

    What I stated was a fact: It took only hours for vicious rumors about Trig Palin's parentage to begin circulating. Of course, those in the public eye are going to be attacked. Generally, however, they aren't attacked over their children or parenting. There is a difference between zeroing in on a policy issue and saying that a politician's child isn't really hers. Sorry for you if you don't get that.

    One larger issue is that female politicians, irrespective of stripe, are attacked in more personal ways than their male counterparts are. I'm sure you remember the nasty comments on Hillary's "thunder thighs." Sure, every so often folks will talk about a Ted Kennedy's "gin blossoms" or a Chris Christie's weight, but not nearly to the extent that a female politician is criticized for her looks/makeup/or wardrobe. Or in the case of Sarah Palin taking her baby with her on the campaign trail because she was breastfeeding, which was called "exploitation," if you recall.

    You get back to me when a male politician's fathering skills become an issue of national interest.

    Yes, everyone I know knew about Obama eating dog. It was discussed broadly during his campaign. In fact, there were many animal rights groups that commented on it. And many bloggers. And websites. And message boards. And the AP. But PETA never knew, you're right!

    Everyone knows Obama eats dog. It was in his book, "Dreams of Eating Dog'.

    There are so many ridiculous statements here it's even beneath me to address them individually. Listen, it's this simple: Men get personally criticized in politics. Obama was attacked nonstop for like 4 years because of his birth certificate. Mormon got it over his religion. Biden got attacked for mentioning Obama was well spoken. People who step into the limelight will be attacked. It's that simple. If you don't like it, tell them to get out of it. However, seeing as how they're all still political and public figures, getting out is not something they've even considered. So, it comes with the territory and they - and their defenders - should stop whining because it happens.

    He'll be two in May, if that makes a difference. Trust me, as some who throws him up in the air (carefully of course), he's not starving.

    According to the CDC and WHO, the weight for a 21 month old baby should be 23.6 - 27.5 pounds. Maybe your friend's baby is closer to 23 pounds.

    Sounds about right. I remember, the last time she told me what his weight was, it made me think how close in weight he was to my 25 lb dog.
