If Obama has his way, Mitt Romney will never drive anywhere with his dog on the roof of his car again

Font Size:

He won’t be able to afford the gas.

I don’t want to say our good friends on the left are foundering, because that would be an understatement. ABC News:

Seamus, Mitt Romney’s Irish setter who traveled with his young family strapped to the roof of their station wagon, “loved” those trips, despite once getting ill, Ann Romney told ABC’s Diane Sawyer in an exclusive interview.

Seamus’ 1983 trip from Boston to a summer cottage in Ontario, Canada, inside a dog carrier lashed atop the family’s Chevrolet, has become a regular barb in Romney’s side and is routinely used by his critics to paint him as uncaring.

Mitt Romney told Sawyer that the Seamus attacks were the most wounding of the campaign “so far,” but Anne Romney insisted the dog loved traveling that way and looked forward to trips.

“The dog loved it,” Ann Romney said. “He would see that crate and, you know, he would, like, go crazy because he was going with us on vacation. It was to me a kinder thing to bring him along than to leave him in the kennel for two weeks.”

Obama 2012: For Seamus.

Hey, if this is what the Obama campaign and all his enablers want to talk about, I say let ’em. Apparently, they really think Americans care more about what Romney once put on top of his car than what they’re struggling to put inside their own.

Say… maybe that’s what Obama is up to. He’s trying to keep everybody’s cars immobile to protect America’s Canine-American population.

“Nah,” I hear you say. “He doesn’t care about dogs. They can’t vote.” That’s what you think.

P.S. In 1983, when Romney ruined his presidential aspirations by putting his dog on top of his car, Reagan was president and gas averaged $1.24 a gallon. Yeah, okay, let’s talk about that.

P.P.S. And what was Obama doing back in 1983? Whoops, am I not supposed to ask that?

P.P.P.S. This one will give you paws.
