Watch the video. The incident may have happened a long time ago, but clearly he is not at all regretful about it. And here's what I don't get: Even if he personally isn't regretful about the incident, how could any politician not realize that this one incident is a huge negative on his image, and he would do well to at least ACT regretful and apologetic. But he doesn't. He sees nothing wrong with what he did.
Romney is hardhearted; he has a heart of stone
I’ve never heard of an “airtight kennel”.
I’m no Romney fan, but is this really the basis of political discourse? I’d rather see conservatives press him to vow some specific changes to the mess that is our budget. And make us believe them.
Thanks for posting, I had forgotten about this - what kind of A-hole does that to the family pet? His giggling about it is creepy, as well.
This is yet another video of Romney lying, here is the truth of how shaken up and abused the dog was.
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. It was a tiny preview of a trait he would grow famous for in business: emotion-free crisis management.
My dog would probably like riding on the roof of a car. No, I’m not voting for mr romneycare. Why don’t you people find something a little more “real” to criticize him about? This is just stupid.
I'm no Romney fan (check my posting history if you wish) but some of this stuff is just silly. Airtight kennel? c'mon. The damn dog was fine.
there are NO personal anecdotes or stories of or about Obama, EVER !?
Does not matter who the GOP nominates, it`ll be the most personal bloody destructive hatched job EVER pulled on a nominee who dares go against their messiah.
I saw Mitt on FNC about 4 years ago,actually Ann saying Mitt wanted to be buried in the coffin with her when they died. Anyone else remember that? Kind of sweet.
The only thing I can think of that's worse is hunters who throw their dogs into the kennels in the back of their pickup trucks after a week of hunting then drive the 1200 miles back home............. /sarc/truth
Kinda has shades of National Lampoon’s “Vacation.”
Most Americans love dogs, so yes, this is an issue that will (and should, in my opinion) cause people to question what kind of person he is.
No way I would vote for this guy. My mom and dad has more kids than he and his wife does. They never put the dog on the top of the car on our family trips. Dad bought a bigger car for us kids and the family pet dog. Who does that what he did!? What a jerk to be nice.
I have been wondering when this was going to surface again. This is the reason I hate this guy.
Watch how a man treats his animals, and you will see his true character.
The ultimate ticket:
Romney / Huckabee 2012
Fighting Like a Dog for America
With Michael Vick at SoS
Who cares? I mean really?? Dogs ride in the back of pick-up trucks all the time. Good grief. This is sometimes the most stupid country I have ever seen.
Poor fellow he might have kept up first mile or so....
