Obama hits Romney on Seamus – POLITICO.com.
OSKALOOSA, Iowa — President Obama strayed from his prepared remarks here Tuesday to get in a jab at Mitt Romney’s famous dog-on-top-of-car moment.
Noting that the Republican candidate has criticized wind energy, saying a windmill can’t be put on top of a car to power it, Obama had a zinger.
“I don’t know if he’s actually tried that,” Obama said. “I know he’s had other things on his car.”
Decades ago, Romney put his family’s dog, Seamus, in a carrier on the roof of their station wagon for a trip to Canada. The incident was the source of much mockery during the Republican primaries and, apparently, in the general election.
