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.
Have you ever seen a dog or dogs riding in the open bed of a pickup truck? How about a kennel trailer? Can you explain the difference between those and a kennel attached to the top of a vehicle?
God, this thread is about media, about propaganda machine, brainwashing, bias, and liberals’ dirty tricks!
Yeah, I am aware the thread is about the dog, the sister who they shipped it to, to get rid of it after the trip, the media reporting the sick abuse, Mitt’s lies and insensitivity over the years about claiming that the dog loved it etc. and how it revealed something about the pathological liar during the campaign for conservatives and freepers, and the freerepublic truth file on Romney.
I’m even aware of the Planned Parenthood supporting, pro-abortion wife of the most hard left, pro-abortion, radical homosexualist to ever contaminate the GOP.
People love pets more than humans in some cases.... those single women in my work office tell me it's about their right to control their own bodies not for the government to order them in what to do.. that's how they see it and come back to pro life rebutal. They tell me it's none of my business. Government tax payers should not pay for abortions and parents should be notified for under age kids. You cannot force a person to not go in a clinic. Well, you can, though I guess you would end up in jail once they got to a phone..we live in a play party society and it's becoming worse...Now, we need a tough stance and good people in leadership until that happens, we are sorta lost.
I don't know anyone as friends or family who is happy about obama 2nd term..
ANY personal attack would have garnered feelings of sympathy.
Did you vote for Romney?
Did the dog die?
I take that back..I live in South Florida and plenty of my neighbors are happy with it.. they are mostly from new jersey, new york .. (no offense to those areas) I have a place further up north Fl-hubby and I stay there more here lately..
What in your little mind is so wrong with crating a dog and securely strapping him to the roof? People put animals in kennals and throw them in the part of an airplane that’s hot and loud. I’ve seen kennels being pulled by cars, or horse stalls. WTF is the difference? For that matter my dog hangs it’s head out of my car window the entire time we’re on a road trip. Actually having the animal in the car loose is more dangerous for the pooch than being secured outside in a kennel/crate.
I think it was candidate fraud.
Do you mean to imply that I’m some kind of a false conservative who probably voted for Obama because I dare to state the obvious? Yes, I voted for him.
The media is fair, what is she talking about? http://perezhilton.com/2011-05-25-barack-obama-talks-over-god-save-the-queen#.UJ4ncZI8pyw
Sorry, not buying that people wouldn’t vote for romney because of the dog story. Most people don’t know about it .
By the way, my dad put our beagle in the front seat of our outboard boat we were towing. She loved it.
“It was voter fraud.”
Yes, it was.
If that’s how the Romneys felt, they shouldn’t have gone along with how it was done to Sarah Palin and acted like she was radioactive to them.
Had they actually fought back against what the media had done to her and the tea party—and not decided that whatever they did to the base themselves didn’t matter, because the base “will always turn out”—they might have had more and more fervent supporters when it counted.
(Though I’m not convinced that sufficient votes weren’t cast for Romney anyway.)
. . . and you need to quit campaigning for Obama. He won; enjoy it now while you can.
Who gives a shit? Lots of dogs, cats, and yes people will die as a result of Obama winning.
Our country is on the precipice. I love animals, but Romney’s dog is not important...really.
