The GOP Just Doesn’t Get It
Boston, MA-Republicans just don’t get it.
In an article which appeared in The Washington Examiner yesterday, Bryan York wrote that Republican strategists are dismissing the importance of Mitt Romney’s abuse of his dog, Seamus. Three out of five Americans live in households with pets and these animal lovers won’t forget Romney’s indifference to the suffering of his own dog.
In 1983, the Romney family took a vacation and drove 12 hours to Canada from the Romney mansion in Massachusetts. During the entire trip, the family’s Irish setter, Seamus was exiled to a crate strapped on top of the station wagon. When Seamus answered the call of nature and rained on the Romney parade, mean Mitt hosed the car and poor Seamus down.
Neil McCarthy, the President of Mitt is Mean asked “If Romney treats his own family pet like this, how you think he’ll treat people he doesn’t even know? Romney has already made it clear that he doesn’t care about the cares and concerns of poor people, homeowners and working families.”
Mitt is Mean is a group of animal lovers and pet owners who want to make the case against the cold blooded and calculating corporate CEO. Scott Crider, Founder of Dogs against Romney and volunteer adviser to Mitt Is Mean said “Republicans don’t want to discuss “Crategate” because they know Romney’s treatment of Seamus is indefensible. It’s a crate which will live in infamy.”
