With Friends Who Barbecue Dogs, Does Mitt Romney Need Enemies?

Dogs against Mitt Romney

If you thought Mitt Romney's dog problem -- strapping family dog Seamus to the roof of a station wagon for a 12 hour trip -- couldn't possibly get any worse ... it has.

A dog barbecuer is hosting Mrs. Mitt Romney's birthday party at his mansion.  No word on what they'll be cooking on the grill. 

What the heck is it with the Romney's and dogs?  

39% of US households own at least one dog.  For most of them, the dog is part of the family, not luggage and surely not a creature to be beaten to death and cooked on a spit.  33% of households own at least one cat, and I suspect most cat owners will also be creeped out by Romney's attitude toward animal abuse and cruelty to pets.  

Will election 2012 turn not on the economy, but on dogs?

now granted, this did happen decades ago.... (4.00 / 1)

but this guys whole career is creepy...

After his drunken frat boy prank of standing by while a buddy beat a dog to death before they skinned and cooked it, we went on to help Richard Nixon with his "Jew hunting" in the Federal government.

"unsavory" hardly describes his character.

More dogs in the news for the Romneys (0.00 / 0)


Ann Romney says the dog "loved" the car ride.  Mitt's not sorry it happened, but he is sorry about the bad publicity:

For his part, Mitt Romney said that he would never again put a dog on top of his car.

“Would you do it again?” asked Sawyer.

”Certainly not with the attention it’s received,” Mitt Romney responded.

To modify your tag line== (0.00 / 0)

If Romney is elected, no dog is safe.

This brings to mind my favorite line from The Merchant of Venice--

"I am Sir Oracle, and when I ope my lips--LET NO DOG BARK.
