New York - Mitt Romney's sister Jane has come to the defense of her younger brother slamming media over the way they had treated the Republican Presidential contender, and blaming them for making him lose the White House race.
Jane, the eldest Romney sister, told Inside Edition about how she felt the media "vilified" Mitt after it was reported that he traveled with Seamus, the family dog, strapped to the roof of their car.
"He was my dog...It's a crate. That's how they travel. Here's the deal. All these stupid little stories are fabricated and it hurt," the New York Daily News quoted her, as saying.
Jane, 75, also said that Mitt's wife, Ann, has not been taking the loss particularly well.
"She was crying. She was very emotional. For Ann, it was definitely shell-shock," she said.
"She won't want to be in a race like this again," she added.
According to the paper, Jane explained what she thinks went wrong with the campaign, and blamed her own family for not doing enough to help him secure a win.
"I feel like our family could have helped more. But we were scared we'd be on the 6 p.m. news, misspeaking," she added.
No, his treatment of the dog fits the life story of Mitt’s bizarre sociopathic behavior and pathological lying, Mitt’s insensitivity and lack of awareness of life outside of himself.
His reaction to the stories over the years have proven his pathological lying.
The whole matter is so insignificant,like what he did in the 8th grade. If you think such things go to character, I have news for you. Almost no one is qualified to run for president.
No, truth has no expiration date, you need to quit campaigning for the man.
You sure do carry an inordinate amount of wood for Romney! Did he step on your toes?
Romney was a wimp and a friggin toady of Karl Rove, who repeated the same failed policy of another failed moderate GOP candidate in McCain, remember he is s nice guy thing they tried on Obama>
Romney was truly not qualified to even be in republican politics, and especially not in the position to lead the party.
If you don’t like this thread about the sister and the dog story, you might be on the wrong thread.
And he lost. so why bring up this penny-ante stuff? About as relevant as Abe Lincolns fights with his wife.
Conservatives have been forced to play defence for years.
Liberals have controlled eduction system, media.....they don’t have bottom line, they can do anything.
Newt was the only one who could deal with the evil media and he would have been a good candidate. Too bad he was a womanizer who had crazy ideas and his own side hated working with him....well that’s what I heard.
You are so full of it. I didn’t want Romney as our candidate, but this story is an old one and needs to just die. What the he** are you talking about campaigning for him? Its over smart a**. Saying this story is old, and it is, and should be allowed to die is your version of campaigning? You are twisted.
People may not like the story though some people didn’t vote for him after what they did to the dog...pets give unconditional love vs humans screw you over while you are looking...people love animals..it’s not a worthless story then or now..IMO..it’s over now..just not for that entire family. ( idiot people to put a dog on a car roof) he maybe remembered for that..the way people are nowadays/to latch on to the shock things..
Being qualified to RUN for president is not the same thing as being qualified to BE president. That's a big part of the problem.
Ok. Romney lost, media and Obama won. Let’s rest the dog issue and forget Benghazi.
“What makes her think we have a media? I know we have a communist propaganda machine, but a media?”
I have been screaming that for years now.
The Marxist/Leninist have always known that the keys to the treasure are in controlling media and education.
If it were not for FOX we would have no media at all.
If not for private schools, we would have nothing but
young pioneer indoctrination schools.
I know many, many people who wouldn’t vote for Mitt because of that dog story. They called him inhumane and there was even a website called “Dogs Against Mitt.” It has thousands of people on it. Never mind that zero voted 3 times to allow babies who survived botched abortions to die, they jumped on the treatment of the dog, yet ignored zero’s inhumanity toward humans.
The libs are so warped in their fake outrages.
Guys, a thread about Seamus, is the wrong thread to be insisting that no one talk about Seamus.
Wait until you are on thread that is NOT about the sister and Seamus and the event, before you try to shut down posting on it.
And so you think zero was and is qualified? You are an obama troll - go back under the bridge your crawled out from. You aren’t qualified to be an expert on Republican politics.
It isn’t just about the dog. Its also about Mitt’s sister, the media,wife and the aftermath of the campaign. Some want to focus on small things -just like the libtards do.
We don’t like Romney, Obama and media don’t like Romney.
Obama won, and everybody is satisfied now.
