Romneys Cruel Canine Vacation


The reporter intended the anecdote that opened part four of the Boston Globe's profile of Mitt Romney to illustrate, as the story said, "emotion-free crisis management": Father deals with minor — but gross — incident during a 1983 family vacation, and saves the day. But the details of the event are more than unseemly — they may, in fact, be illegal.

The incident: dog excrement found on the roof and windows of the Romney station wagon. How it got there: Romney strapped a dog carrier — with the family dog Seamus, an Irish Setter, in it — to the roof of the family station wagon for a twelve hour drive from Boston to Ontario, which the family apparently completed, despite Seamus's rather visceral protest.
This guy has some really great judgement, huh?!

This is simply called cruelty to animals... some President he would make.

No surprise here. "Hunter" Romney is just proving he deserves the description "compassionate conservative."

Let's Talk, yeah really!
Jollyroger, oh yeah he definitely fits the Bush/cheney compassionate conservative mold, that's for sure. Thanks for the comments guys.

Based on just that one anecdote, Romney is a total asshole. Even if I agreed with him on the issues I'd never vote for someone like that.
