Mitt is Mean Goes National on CNN

It would be easy to dismiss all of this as political silliness were it not for one troubling fact: Sometimes the way a president connects with critters can affect the way voters relate to him.

For all the headaches on the campaign trail, you would not think a candidate would be hounded by his own dog.

That, however, has been the relentless fate of Republican contender Mitt Romney. A trip to Canada 30 years ago with the family pooch in a car top carrier, has been the gift that just keeps giving to Democrats. They’ve lampooned him as cruel at worst, foolish at best, with bumper stickers and T-shirts that say “Dogs aren’t luggage!” and “Mitt is Mean!”

Republicans have counterattacked by pointing out that President Obama wrote in his own book about eating dog as a child, helping the dog fight become a theme at this year’s White House Correspondents Association dinner.

Comedian Jimmy Kimmel nipped at both of them. “If Mitt Romney offers you a ride, call shotgun. And if President Obama starts buttering you, run!”

” The continuing saga of Seamus Romney “

Romney’s reaction perplexes me. For five years, Romney has defended his decision. Tellingly, the title of his most recent book is “No Apology.” I won’t demand an apology from Mitt.

o

I don’t believe in forcing people to give half-hearted mea culpas. It’s insincere and sets a bad precedent. And Seamus wouldn’t have understood anyway.

Mitt Romney Heckled Over Dog-On-Roof Story – The Huffington Post

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney can’t even grab some pizzas without being reminded of how he treated his dog nearly 30 years ago.

As Romney exited Joe’s Pizza carrying a stack of pizza boxes in New York City on Tuesday, somebody on the sidewalk shouted, “Just don’t put ’em on the roof of the car,” according to a tweet from Reuters reporter Sam Youngman.

In 1983, the Romneys embarked on a 12-hour drive from Massachusetts to Canada. Since there wasn’t enough room in the car for the family dog, Seamus, Romney put the Irish Setter in a crate fastened to the roof of the car. Though Romney has said Seamus loved roof rides, during this particular trip the dog suffered a bout of diarrhea that forced Romney to pull over and hose off the car.

Dog lovers have protested Romney over “Crate-Gate” ever since the Boston Globe first reported it in 2007. Romney said last month that he wouldn’t do it again because of all the attention it received.

Campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul tweeted a photo of Romney carrying the pizzas.

Story of Romney dog Seamus hounding Mitt

The dog-on-the-roof story was offered by the Globe as evidence of Romney’s knack for “emotion-free crisis management.” Well, OK. Picking a president is all about deciding who’ll have a finger on the button for the next four years, and the last thing we need is a guy who loses his cool when the stink hits the windshield at 60 mph.

An Issue With Four Legs

Bob Bannon, a senior advisor for the “Mitt is Mean” political action committee, said the story is still relevant today because, he said, “It’s a metaphor for how he treats public policy problems.”

“He’s indifferent, he’s insensitive, he doesn’t care,” Bannon said. “He comes across as a cold-blooded corporate CEO.”

Bannon said his group expects to raise $1 million to put up web ads portraying the Seamus scandal as a Romney character flaw, a flaw that he says will continue to be highlighted throughout the general election.

“It’s an issue with legs,” Bannon said. “In this case four legs.”

Mitt Romney Says ‘Dignity Of Work’ Only Available To Women In The Paid Workforce – Forbes

“I wanted to increase the work requirement,” said Romney. “I said, for instance, that even if you have a child 2 years of age, you need to go to work. And people said, ‘Well that’s heartless.’ And I said, ‘No, no, I’m willing to spend more giving day care to allow those parents to go back to work. It’ll cost the state more providing that daycare, but I want the individuals to have the dignity of work.’”

Romney fundraiser dogged by past | ohmidog!

Update on the breaking news on Nixon Aide and major Romney fundraiser Fred Malek 

via Romney benefactor also dogged by past | ohmidog!.

Former Nixon Aide Fred Malek to host a lavish fundraiser for Mitt Romney on wife Ann Romney‘s birthday. Malek  was once arrested in an incident involving the killing and barbecuing of a dog.

“Malek worked with the administrations of both Richard Nixon and George H.W. Bush.  While in the Nixon administration, he compiled, at the president’s request, a list of Jews in the federal government. In 1988,  Malek resigned from the Republican National Committee over questions about his earlier role in President Nixon’s push to oust Jews from government positions.

Malek apologized and, as with the case of the cooked dog, denied playing a substantial role in the scheme.”

This man is disgusting, and to have Mitt Romney allow this guy to host a big fundraiser, on his wife’s birthday no less, shows that he puts  himself and his ambitions above the everday people and families of America. – Mimi
