Go ahead. Follow the link to the actual news story in the (sorry excuse for the ) "news" magazine Time.
I'm not saying Mitt Romney abused his own dog.
Decide for yourself.
"Romney's Cruel Canine Vacation"
Stop the squabbling people, and lets all un-elect Obama.
1983. Wow. His kids may have even been sitting in the front passenger seat and/or unbuckled too. Child abuse maybe?
Just the other day someone told me they heard that Mitt used to chain up black people and drag them behind his pickup truck(complete with NRA sticker in the window) on dirt roads.
If he’s elected, black churches will buuuuurrrn!
Hell! It’s Time, right?
Is this the FIRST attack on “the mayonnaise sandwich on white bread” from the lefty media?
OMG, I’ll bet he probably picked his nose too!
It’s an article from the last election cycle, when the media was actually worried Mitt might beat Obama.
Evidently that is no longer the case. Or more likely, the “journo-list” liberals have agreed to hold this sort of article until Romney is forced upon us.
I’m going with the latter.
“The incident: dog excrement found on the roof and windows of the Romney station wagon.”
They’re trying to making this look like “Helter Skelter”. Will this be Romney’s Dogshitgate?
"raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Ghengis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam, in addition to the normal ravage of war and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country."
Those cattle mutilations you've heard about over the past few years.. now you know. Mitt. That's right.
Exactly. This story will definitely re-surface when the media gets the signal from Axelrod to go after Mitt. It’s the kind of story that will resonate with non-political types. Lots of people love their dogs. If the story is true, what Mitt did was really stupid and borderline cruel.
| "But the details of the event are more than unseemly - they may, in fact, be illegal. Massachusetts's animal cruelty laws specifically prohibit anyone from carrying an animal "in or upon a vehicle, or otherwise, in an unnecessarily cruel or inhuman manner or in a way and manner which might endanger the animal carried thereon. "An officer for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals responded to a description of the situation saying "it's definitely something I'd want to check out." The officer, Nadia Branca, declined to give a definitive opinion on whether Romney broke the law but did note that it's against state law to have a dog in an open bed of a pick-up truck, and "if the dog was being carried in a way that endangers it, that would be illegal."
"Dog on Roof? What Was It Like for Romney's Pooch? - Scientists Say Dog Likely Experienced Wind-Whipped, Uncomfortable Trip - "Before beginning the drive, Mitt Romney put Seamus, the family's hulking Irish setter, in a dog carrier and attached it to the station wagon's roof rack. e'd built a windshield for the carrier, to make the ride more comfortable for the dog,".. Jordan Kaplan, the owner of Petaholics, a dog walking service in New York City,
"Romney's dog - This is a distinction Mitt Romney probably could do without, but he is surely the first presidential candidate to be attacked for putting a dog with diarrhea in a carrier and tying it to the top of a station wagon. Romney's defense: Seamus liked it. [like the citizens under Romney's RomneyCARE, etc.?] "
"As the oldest son, Tagg Romney commandeered the way-back of the wagon, keeping his eyes fixed out the rear window, where he glimpsed the first sign of trouble. ''Dad!'' he yelled. ''Gross!'' A brown liquid was dripping down the back window, payback from an Irish setter who'd been riding on the roof in the wind for hours. As the rest of the boys joined in the howls of disgust, Romney coolly pulled off the highway and into a service station. There, he borrowed a hose, washed down Seamus and the car, then hopped back onto the highway."
Romney's bad behavior Exposed by Seamus
"Romney Loses Nomination Over Dog Abuse? - Romney was traveling that summer with his wife, five sons, and Seamus to his parent's cottage on Lake Huron. But hours into the ride, Seamus apparently suffered diarrhea, which ran down the back window of the car. .David Kravitz wrote on BlueMassGroup, a liberal blog. "It also strikes me as classic Romney: it solves a problem efficiently, in a business-like manner, and with no regard whatsoever for the suffering that the solution may cause."
Oh well, he can expect a congradulatory call from Obama when he secures the nomination, sort of like Michael Vick got a call from The One!

I’ll pass on any comments
Few chances to use it, as you can see!
Who the freaking heck straps a dog on top of a car for twelve hours?
That’s just weird, twisted & cruel.
Never ever in my life have I seen this...anywhere.
Just plain wrong.
Coming next week in Slime. “Did Milt Romney abuse his Sea Monkeys as a child?”
I bet he ate them.

[Poor Dog had twelve hours of road dust in its eyes; obviously it was terribly frightened as evidenced by the mess it made on top and sides of the car.]

"The luggage rack is too good for you!"
All the sled dogs will tell you that if you aren’t the lead dog, the view never changes much.
I remember this being a topic of discussion back in 2008, too. That definitely wouldn’t play well among progressives, and liberal-leaning animal loving independents - not to mention the animal lover conservatives (like myself).
I haven't followed the story but if Mitt did do something cruel to a dog someone on our side better pull it out now and run with it. Better to have him politically destroyed now than later when it is too late to save the election.
I haven’t heard that he stopped beating his wife.....
Natural born American dog. At least 35 dog years of age. Irish dual citizenship matters only to birthers, who do not matter. Responsible for more shovel-ready jobs (and at least one hose-ready) job than Barack Hussein Obama. Willing to lick babies. What's not to like?
Anyone looking for a sensitive metro sexual to be in the White House needs to consider Obama...
Which man do you want as an example to your children?
NEITHER of them but stop pretending the Marxist Kenyan is some hero for spending tax payer dollars to fly that dog BACK to DC from Hawaii for a photo op. It’s clear he doesn’t give a sh*t about that dog except for photo ops.
VERY WEIRD! If they thought so little of the family dog, why even bother to take him along? He would have been much better off in a kennel than strapped onto the top of a car. Seriously, WTF?I can’t imagine doing that to one of our dogs. It’s cruel and it’s dangerous.
There’s no way to explain that away. Good graphic!
Up until the 70s, it was common for you to put your hunting dog into the trunk of your car (pick-ups were for farmers and wives did not want dog hair in the back seat). Go read some bird hunting books from that period, it was accepted and the dogs used to jump in unbidden (because they knew they were going hunting).
Didn’t this happen about the same time that Obama was smoking dope and doing coke?
“spending tax payer dollars to fly that dog “
Amazing that they brought the dog to Hawaii. It is clearly a photo op animal. They have never had a pet before.
Obama is such a phony. Isn’t it clear to everyone?
Thank you my friend and Happy New Year
So how long have you hated dogs?
“Obama had somebody watch his dog outside of Air Force Two for their vacation in Hawaii and it was only a 7 hr trip.”
I didn’t hear about this. What do you mean it was only 7 hour trip? His dog is in Hawaii for the whole vacation, right? Just wondering.
You know, this is analogous to putting a dog in the back of an open pick up truck. No big deal.
I think it is much more cruel to force an animal to be in a box in cargo holding on Air Force 2 for 12 hours like Obama probably did to "Bo" on the way to the Hawaii photo op.
Also, serious Americans must ask: can we subject an innocent animal like Bo the dog to the care of a violent man who orders indiscriminate bombing of Libya, drone killings of "suspected terrorists", the killing of Somali Pirates and shooting Osama in the head?
Caption for a picture worth a thousand words.
“Anyone looking for a sensitive metro sexual to be in the White House needs to consider Obama...”
Obama supporters are more concerned with dogs than humans.
Check out this clip from Portlandia in which a couple is outraged that a dog is tied up in front of a cafe and so let him go and he runs away.
“Who puts their dog on a pole like a stripper?”
His kids had wanted a dog for YEAR! He and big MO stated that many times. Then they said after the elections they would get a dog. They didn’t. They wanted to wait until they had “servants” to walk it, feed it, clean up after it. Then even after they moved into the WH they dithered, dithered, dithered. Finally Ted the swimmer sent them over a dog. They are pathetic losers and users.
