Santorum Team Doggedly Resurrects Romney’s Seamus Tale (Mitt's Cruelty to Animals)
ABC News ^ | 3/19/12 | Amy Bingham

Posted on 03/19/2012 5:26:00 PM PDT by jimbo123

Seamus the Irish setter may have died years ago, but the now-infamous story of his rooftop ride has been more firmly cemented into the narrative of the 2012 campaign than his retaliatory excrement was plastered to the back window of the Romney family station wagon during that fateful trip 20 years ago.

The Santorum campaign has referenced Mitt Romney’s treatment of his dog Seamus four times over the past week as an anecdote that purportedly calls into question the former governor’s character.

We are all Seamus strapped to the roof of Mitt’s car and we’re going to Canada whether we like it of not.

If we have to choose between Mitt and Obama, I think Canada sounds good.

Bill Clinton got a dog named Seamus too. Is the secret Service still walking it?

Bill only got it for publicity purposes, the same as Socks the Cat.

I am a big time Santorum supporter, but this is just stupid.

LOL, Romney very much deserves this. Maybe he could team up with the Donald’s kids and tell animal tales.

Romney seems to be in a competition with Obama to see who can be most arrogant.

Santorum is a PETA guy, he probably thinks Romney is abusing the dog just by owning it. The GOP has really sunk low to have these two guys as our best candidates.

This plays into a larger theme, that Romney seems to be not quite human. He appears to be a pod person or perhaps has a computer chip in his head that’s remote controlled from outer space. Others have pointed it out, too. He’s a stepford candidate who does a pretty good job of mimicing a person but there’s something lacking.

Most of my dogs have been rescue dogs and something like this really does mean something to me. I’ve taken in more than a few “problem dogs” and don’t have much use for people who mistreat animals even if its out of indifference.

“It” is lacking a soul.

So “the aliens” are telling Romney to strap the dog kennel to the top of the station wagon? Maybe you ought to consider purchasing some tin foil yourself.

He has a point. What sort of depraved idea is it to strap your pup even if in a crate to the roof of the car? The dog goes in the car at my house.

I have no use for either of them. I liked Santorum slightly more until I heard his views that the role of the federal govt was to police the internet for porn. Now I think he is an idiot and a danger to our country.
