Remembering Seamus – Ron Fisher

 

Republished from the Ashville, NC Citizen-Times

 

The story about the Romney family dog Seamus and his placement on the roof of their car during a family outing is more than just an amusing tale about a poor dog’s predicament while traveling to Canada with his owners. Actually, it tells us a great deal about how Mr. Romney looks upon the weaker, frailer and “less important.” It shows us very clearly that he treats those he believes are inferior to his closest associates in a manner most would agree is not equal. He has been quoted as stating that the unfortunate dog’s situation was not a big deal. In fact it was his opinion that Seamus enjoyed it. The frightening part of that explanation is that Mr. Romney really believes that. At his core, Mr. Romney feels that by allowing Seamus to come along with him for the trip, even though he was placed in a cage on the roof, the dog should somehow be grateful and appreciative. Seamus shouldn’t expect to be allowed directly in the vehicle with the closer and more important family members. After all, he’s just a dog.

 

I believe this is how Mr. Romney views his policies on the treatment of others who are not part of his close circle of friends. The poor have their food stamps and housing assistance. The elderly and disabled have their Social Security and Medicare. Women have their husbands. Students have their parents. And Mr. Romney is helping pay for all of this. They should be happy for what they have and should be thanking him. If they’ll just vote for him to be in power so that the wealthy elite can pay fewer taxes and get much richer, he promises to allow for some of that to trickle down. He’ll bring us all along with him on his ride. We just might have to ride on the roof in a cage. What most people don’t realize is how the story about Seamus ends. Seamus ran away at the end of that trip.

Formed to bring attention to the presumptive Republican presidential candidate’s history of cruelty and nefarious behavior, the Mitt Is Mean Super PAC was launched this spring and has been embraced by pet lovers around the country who find the infamous story of Romney’s treatment of his dog, Seamus, intolerable and unforgettable.

In 1983, the Romney family took a 12-hour drive from their home in Massachusetts to a vacation spot in Canada with their late Irish setter contained in a crate strapped to the roof of the family car. As the story goes, Seamus experienced a bout with diarrhea during the voyage and was subsequently hosed down by Romney at a gas station.

Of the many groups supporting the Mitt Is Mean Super PAC is the online group Dogs Against Romney, whose founder, Scott Crider, offered a ringing endorsement. “Dogs against Romney is a pack, not a PAC” Crider says. “Our members are eager to do more and need a PAC they can support. I decided to get behind Mitt is Mean because the group has been working around the clock to focus attention on Romney’s cruel indifference to people and pets. If he treated his family dog that way how do you think he’ll treat people he doesn’t know.”

Mitt Is Mean will continue to bring attention to the cruelty of Romney, and the GOP Mean Machine’s Corporations Are People agenda throughout the 2012 election cycle by mobilizing the 8 million pet owning swing voters in 10 battleground states. Stay tuned by visiting http://www.mittismean.org.
