Mitt Romney: Dog Hater

Filed under: Idiocy,Mitt Romney,RINOs — Psycheout @ 6:28 pm

Normally I tend to ignore stories in MSM disinformation sources like the Boston Glob and Slime magazine, but occasionally they do report stories with a sliver of truth. As always, judge for yourself. But it would appear that man’s best friend is no friend of MSM’s favorite Morman (and wearer of the magical underwear) Mitt Romney.

The background:

The white Chevy station wagon with the wood paneling was overstuffed with suitcases, supplies, and sons when Mitt Romney climbed behind the wheel to begin the annual 12-hour family trek from Boston to Ontario.

Stop. Wait. Hang on. A man who wants to be President of America vacations in Ontario, Canada? How patriotic! Pathetic, really. But, like I said, make up your own mind.

The brilliance:

Before beginning the drive, Mitt Romney put Seamus, the family’s hulking Irish setter, in a dog carrier and attached it to the station wagon’s roof rack. He’d built a windshield for the carrier, to make the ride more comfortable for the dog.

Great American name: Sea-mus. Sounds pagan to me. Maybe it’s Mormon. And putting the dog on the roof of the car instead of some of his luggage? The man has no grasp of basic logic. Here’s a free tip Mitt: suitcases don’t need windshields! Idiot! Perhaps the dog would have been more comfortable if it had been euthanized first. What a dolt.

The resolve:

Then Romney put his boys on notice: He would be making predetermined stops for gas, and that was it.

It’s lucky for the Romney boys that they got to ride inside the car…this time. I suppose if they protested about the stupidity of tying a dog to the bumper or strapping it on top of the car, they’d be forced to join it.

The compassion:

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.

Of course one small fender bender and it would have been red liquid. And it wasn’t payback, you morons. The dog was probably terrified and freezing, riding atop a car for hours driven by multiple choice Mitt. So what was fancy pants Mitt’s response?

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.

“Emotion-free crisis management?” The man’s a robot. The Boston Glob is trying desperately to sell us a bill of goods and I’m not buying. Why is the liberal Glob trying to spin this flip-flopper into office? Think about it.

The details of this episode and the Glob’s attempts to spin it disgusts me too much to go on, but you get the picture: Romney’s a moron. Follow the links to read more. But as a frequent pet owner, I just can’t take it.

Now I can understand that Mitt lovers will dismiss this story as being unimportant and trivial. Let’s face it: they have to. What other choice do they have but damage control? But anyone who treats a family member like this (our golden retriever Lucky was always a treasured part of my family growing up) simply cannot be trusted. He does this to family — what will he do to you? If nothing else it demonstrates his lack of judgement.

He doesn’t even treat the family dog like a dog. What kind of President could he possibly be? Just another in a long line of reasons to reject Flip-Floppin’ Mitt: Mitt hates Mutts.

Update: Did he break the law?

Massachusetts’s animal cruelty laws specifically prohibit anyone from carrying an animal “in or upon a vehicle, or otherwise, in an unnecessarily cruel or inhuman manner or in a way and manner which might endanger the animal carried thereon.”

Regardless, Romney is obviously judgement impaired.

Update 2: The dogs are fighting back. See Dogs Against Romney.

  1. It looks like Taxuchusetts treats it’s criminals better than the Governor treats his family. All the Romneys and anyone who knew about it and let this person run for office should just be ashamed of themselves.

  2. You’re bashing a man because of how he rides with his dog in his car? That must mean you absolutely hate Dick Cheney because he shot someone in the face, being an idiot and all.

  3. Apparently reading comprehension isn’t your strong suit. I guess the quality of commenters has dropped since last I was here.

    The dog wasn’t riding in the car, idiot. Apparently you’ve been shot in the face or in some other way have suffered brain damage. Either way I don’t want to make fun of you. So I won’t.

    Try reading my post again or some other description of the incident. After that, write down something interesting to say about it. Then throw the damn thing in the trash because nobody is actually interested in your opinion.

    Strapping your dog to the top of your car rather than some of your luggage shows an inability to reason, something which is also evident in your comment.

  4. Haha!

    Do you think that anybody cares what a couple of wingnut extremists think? The answer is no, and the proof reinforcing my point is that Brownback has zero support and will probably drop out of the race soon enough. If he makes the presidency, I will personally come to your house and kiss your shoes in apology. Until then however, I just classify you as an idiot with no worthwhile opinions or contributions to society.

  5. Hmmm, since Brownback has no chance and you don’t care what other Americans think (“wingnut extremists”), then why are you here instead of nodding furiously to the writings of “screw ’em” Kos?

    Please don’t visit my house. We will both benefit from a Brownback Presidency. We will both suffer under a Hillary Rodham Clinton Presidency. Mark my words.

    Even Mike Gravel would be better than the shrew.

  6. Screw ’em Kos? I have no idea what you mean.

    Nobody will benefit from a Brownback presidency. If he’s half the things you hope he is (which he isn’t; I’m sure he’s quite ashamed to be associated with you) then he will set America back five hundred years.

  7. I’m doing no more homework for adam and mona. I’m done. Don’t know about screw ’em kos? Check here.

    Google is your friend. That took me 3 seconds to find.

  9. Wow, Tim, you win. Flip-floppin’ Mitt would be a great President. I just hope he doesn’t rend his garments in public.

  10. Hey Psycheout, I’m not asking you to do my homework remember? I am asking you to do your own (in the other blog of course…I don’t feel like playing in here…I’m already in 4 or 5.). I explained this. I’m not lazy. I do my research. When I ask you the follow-up questions I do it to see if you have done yours. Have you? I will talk to you when you find your other blog thingy.

  11. It seems to me that a lot of fuss is being made here based on the work of a hack journalist who never bothered to inquire about the dog’s point of view. Until someone gets a verbatim quote from the dog complaining of mistreatment at the hands of the Romney family, we can only assume that he preferred traveling in this manner. So let Mitt be.

  12. Somehow I think that if Mitt Romney had strapped the Clintons’ dog to the roof of their car and gone a’cruisin’, these moonbats would agree with Psycheout that he’d gone too far. But since it’s just some Republican dog, he’s supposed to be grateful that he was in a carrier instead of tied to the top of the car like a Christmas tree.

    Says a lot about so-called Democrat compassion.

  13. Romney is just another RINO Democrat. He belongs in Cuba with the rest of the human offal.

  14. This may be a good sign for Romney. If he treats his dog this bad, imagine what he’ll do to the liberals and the Iranians.

  15. All I can say is that I am glad Mitt Romney isn’t an Oriental or that dog might have been somebody’s dinner. Being a Mormon is bad enough as it is.

    Thank God for Sam Brownback in 2008!

  16. Y’know, Crockett, it’s very sad that your beliefs demand that you live in perpetual ignorance. However, where your bald-faced arrogance comes from, I’m not entirely sure.

    Thank Science for anybody who can actually WIN the presidency in 2008!

  17. You know, Mr. Psycheout (if that is indeed you’re real name), you should always refer to our esteemed ex-Governor by his full name, even when you are associating it with dog poop. It’s only fair.
    Mitt’s real full name is Willard Mitt Romney.
    Thank you for making sure you get it right in the future!

  18. You know, Infidel Adamnelson, if I wanted your unsolicited opinion I would have asked for it. I know where your idiocy comes from, it’s from being a brain-dead Liberal and God hater.

  19. that is freaking sick. but you know something? how can you all sit hear and complain about how one dog was treated when everyday millions of cowsand chickens and pigs are subjected to MUCH worse things. and i’m not talking about them being killed and served as your dinner. i’m talking about the lives they have to live BEFORE they become your dinner.

    whats the difference between a dog and a sheep?

    i don’t see one.

    i’m not trying to justify him in anyway. i don’t support him. i’m just saying. if THAT bothers you, than why doesn’t ALL animal cruelty bother you?

  20. oh, and pardon me mrs T.D. but i thought the COMMENT box was for our opinions? wait… don’t tell me this isn’t america anymore? *gasp!*

  21. We can comment on this one dog because his owner is a front runner for the Rethuglican ticket.

  22. Oh please stop the stupidity America! STOP!

    By the way, there are PEOPLE, YES PEOPLE!…REAL PEOPLE!…dying and suffering around the world every day – refugees and victims of poverty, and yet, here are some people in AMERICA trying to defend dogs to the DEATH and hoping to smear and asperse someone who has more integrity and character than all the top tier candidates in both parties. Why not acquire some healthy and proper perspectives on things instead of adding fuel to this fire of bipartisan politics under the guise of animal cruelty accusations?

    Have you ever considered that Romney could have left the dog home alone, or under the care of a neighbor? Instead he took the dog on vacation with the family! Is that not enough to warrant some kindhearted gesture on Romney’s part? STOP THIS MADNESS AMERICA!!
