Mitt Romney Seamus Dog




























Republican presidential candidate Mitt
Romney can't even grab some pizzas without being reminded of how he
treated his dog nearly 30 years ago.



As Romney exited Joe's Pizza carrying a stack of pizza boxes in New
York City on Tuesday, somebody on the sidewalk shouted, "Just don't put
'em on the roof of the car," according to a tweet from Reuters reporter Sam Youngman.



In 1983, the Romneys embarked on a 12-hour drive from Massachusetts
to Canada. Since there wasn't enough room in the car for the family dog,
Seamus, Romney put the Irish Setter in a crate fastened to the roof of
the car. Though Romney has said Seamus loved roof rides, during this
particular trip the dog suffered a bout of diarrhea that forced Romney
to pull over and hose off the car.

Look, whether you agree with his decision regarding Seamus, it was nearly 30 years ago. Don't you think its time to let it go? Don't we as a country have more important things to worry about? Why can't we stay focused on ISSUES rather than silly things , like what Romney did with his dog, or when Obama ate dog, or personal lives, or how much money Ann Romney has? NONE of that MATTERS. What matters is who is best for our country.

Lets Let sleeping dogs lie. :)

    I agree it's been made more of an issue than it probably should have, but given the way the Right Wing has tried to make an issue out of the fact that the President ate dog meat 43 years ago because his stepfather served it to him, I don't consider it irrelevant to remind people that Mitt Romney committed an act of animal cruelty even if it was 30 years ago.

    He should have just told them that he was sorry and then politely informed them that he had to run or else the presidents doggy sausage pizza would get cold.

    Animal cruelty is never alright. Perhaps Mitt has spoken about how wrong this was, perhaps not. I haven't heard either way. But, I think much less of him than I otherwise would. If he can't take proper care of a defensless dog, how are we to believe he can take care of a nation?

    It's a non issue. We know more about what Romney did with his dog 30 years ago than we know about Obama's whole stinking life.

    Totally agree with you. People focus on things that have nothing to do with politics. And, yes, it was 30 years ago. Get over it. Its not like the dog died, and that's coming from an animal lover that operates a dog rescue.

    I think it shows how numb this person is to the feelings of others. If he ever becomes president, you can bet your last dollar that this country will soon be in economic crisis again as socialism for the rich tends to do that.

    Liberals know that Obama doesn't have much of a record to run on.

    As such, they have to manufacture other issues to distract everyone's attention away from Obama's failed policies.

    There are plenty of reasons to diss Romney. No doubt the family loved Seamus, but the episode indicates that Romney is rather on the clueless side. 12 hours is a hellavuh long ride inside a car. The vibrations felt on the roof must have made Seamus more than miserable. It's well known that Mitt has a few bucks. Why not fly the dog?

    Animal cruelty? You have got to be outta your mind. I guess dogs riding in the back of trucks and hanging their heads out the window are being abused as well, in your mind.

    Yes but the Republicans are afraid to talk about the real issues. They know that if they do it will only highlight President Obama's accomplishments.

    The real issues are war, the fed, taxes and regulations. Mittens and Bammy will do the same things. Bammy has no accomplishments.
  • gvc ProudPr... 2012/05/03 05:14:25

    There are NO accomplishments to highlight.
    Since the media leans heavily to the left, clearly they too are hard pressed to find these so called accomplishments and must focus on a dog riding on the top of Romney's car.
    Pathetic!

    Democrats???? This issue was over a month ago until the Right Wing decided to try to make an issue out of the fact that a seven year old boy ate the dinner his stepfather served him and that dinner included dog meat. We all know that the Republicans can't address actual ISSUES, but if they don't want trivial things to be the focus of a campaign then they ought to stop making them so.

    It is nothing more than another distraction tactic, just like the war on women, the war on bin laden, etc. I see from your response, I have it exactly right.

    Pathetic, once again, but what else do you have when your record is failure after failure. How miserable it must be when you look at your president and say "what can we do to convince America they want four more years of this misery?"

    Bush was an idiot and Obama is Bush with a greater spending addiction. Sorry you are once again barking up the wrong tree. I haven't had a candidate to support all of my voting life, none qualify as conservative in my book, and yes that includes Reagan. It is always the candidate that will do the least damage to the constitution that gains my vote, so far that looks like it will be a shoe, instead of anyone currently on the ballot.
    Please tell me what part of Obama's results would you be able to convince a citizen they want four more years of.
