Yes. Can't trust an animal abuser.
No. No crime has been commited.
Maybe. It's only an issue with Democrats.

Reporting from Washington—

As Mitt Romney’s campaign seeks to humanize him in the eyes of prospective voters, one issue beyond his policy stances or his stump statements continues to follow him – his treatment of the family dog Seamus during a family vacation in 1983.

    I don't think it will cost him him presidency. But he would have lost MY vote if I were ever for him.

    Many agree with you & will re-elect Obama.

    This is why we can't get any good candidates to run. The media will run them into the gutter with any dirt they can find.

    I'm prepared to be convinced that what Romney did was cruel to his dog, but I haven't heard anything convincing yet. Rather, to me this argument is virtually a paradigm of why I'm inclined to vote for Romney - and for Republicans generally - rather than Democrats. Democratic attacks on Republican sexual prudery notwithstanding, the Democrats are the ones I usually find chomping at the bit to assert some new control over an individual's - or community's - rights of self determination, from seat belts of drivers driving alone in their cars to parental rights to advise their minor daughters regarding abortions.

    Romney was doing something the dog liked; though what he did was in no sense scientifically tested, Romney didn't just run off and engage in reckless behavior, he made trial runs that overcame what were his initial reservations about the safety of putting the crate w/ the dog on the car roof. Just as is usually the case, Democrats have clustered their opinions into a facsimile of a standard under which Romney's behavior would constitute Cruelty to Animals, and are running around desperately seeking credentialed talking heads to validate their position, a task that has been complicated by the President's admission in his autobiography that he ate dogs.

    Well, good. Maybe ...

    Well, good. Maybe we'll get an honest public opinion as to whether we're better off being basically allowed to make our own decisions, or whether what we do with our pets, our property, and our family is to be continuously subjected to judgment by some "National Uh-Oh Squad".

    The media, PITA, the ACLU, the treehuggers & far left wacos will be pushing this even harder as the elections nears. The media will bring this up 1st at the Romney-Obama debate.

    Never mind unemployment, the economy, the debt, the wars, Obama's failures. Mitts dog will take center stage above all else.

    Mitt must be made to look incompetent at all costs like the media's relentless attacks on Palin.

    This is just nonsense. How is this any worse than a dog hanging his head out the window of a car or bouncing around in the bed of a pick-up truck going down the road. Dogs like fresh air. We had a dog who loved to ride in our speed boat, the faster and windier the better. If this is the best Democrats can come up with the criticize, they're in trouble.

    No more than Obama eating Dog Meat when he was young .........

    let’s talk about how presidential candidates treated dogs decades ago.

    Can you name the author of this quote?


    “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.”

    Yep, that’s Barack Obama, writing about his childhood with his stepfather Lolo Soetoro in Indonesia, from Chapter Two of his bestseller Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance.
