Authors bite at Romney dog tale in new book

Even though he died in the 1990s, and the most famous incident involving him happened nearly three decades ago, satirists are still panting at the chance to chronicle the above-the-car adventures of Seamus the dog.

Now Mitt Romney’s canine companion is getting his own book.

Dog on the Roof!: On the Road With Mitt & the Mutt, by National Public Radio regulars and co-writers Bruce Kluger and David Slavin, is an illustrated tale about the 1983 Romney family road trip that the Republican presidential candidate simply hasn’t been able to put to bed.

As the endlessly repeated story goes, the former Massachusetts governor says he created a special carrier for his Irish Setter, Seamus, and placed it on top of his Chevy for a 650-mile road trip to Ontario.

The not-for-kids rhyming tome, illustrated by Colleen Clapp, is written from Seamus’s rooftop perspective, with the dog declaring early on, “I’m there on the lawn and then suddenly — poof! The next thing I know, I’m a dog on a roof!”

Another Seamus-ism: “Though Jesus (and Moses, and Buddha) may love you, the same can’t be said for the dog up above you!”

Fortunately, the book skimps on the details of when the furry family member became sick at some point during the travels, and the Romneys noticed some foul-looking stuff coming down the sides of their vehicle.

The authors, the scribes behind other satires on former President George W. Bush and ex-Vice President Dick Cheney, dedicated their latest work to New York Times writer Gail Collins, who has penned more than 50 columns on Seamus.

Coming Next Week – We can’t wait! Seamus Inspires New Tale

WASHINGTON — The tale has inspired ample political commentary, and more than a few columns for the New York TimesGail Collins. Now, the story of Mitt Romney’s former dog Seamus could start becoming a profit-maker.

A new book, “Dog on the Roof! On the Road with Mitt and the Mutt,” is being released next month by the reputable publisher Simon and Schuster.

The book depicts the Romney family — using early photos of Mitt, his wife, Ann, and their five boys — crammed into a station wagon with a dog atop it. The family is shown driving to cities around the country as the authors use sing-song verse to lampoon Romney’s positions on immigration, gay rights, his ties to Wall Street — and the fact that he once drove to Canada with his dog in a container on top of the car.

Dogs Against Romney Founder Endorses Mitt Is Mean Super PAC

DOGS AGAINST ROMNEY FOUNDER ENDORSES MITT IS MEAN 


Boston, MA-  Today, the founder of Dogs against Romney, Scott Crider endorsed the SuperPAC, Mitt Is Mean.  Crider will also serve as a volunteer adviser to the SuperPac. Dogs Against Romney is a national group of pet lovers who believe that Mitt Romney’s abuse of his dog Seamus is a window into the GOP nominee’s soul.

You may have heard the story. 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.


“Dogs against Romney is a pack, not a PAC” said Crider. “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.”

Marty Dunleavy, a senior adviser to Mitt is Mean stated that he was “happy to have Scott Crider and Dogs against Romney on board because we both want to expose Mitt Romney for the mean spirited guy he really is. The GOP presidential candidate has already made it clear that he doesn’t care about the problems of poor people, homeowners and working families.”

Brad Bannon, spokesman for Mitt is Mean pointed out that “Romney is the guy who put his dog in a crate on top of a car for 12 hours, likes to fire people, bullied a prep school classmate and supports the GOP Mean Machine budget which cuts federal aid for prenatal care.”

Sad Saga of Mean Mitt Continues in Doonesbury

Seamus Romney’s story goes to print – Remember Seamus!

Perhaps it was only a matter of time given the story’s staying power, but the tale of Seamus and his famous ride on the roof of the Romney family car is about to be immortalized in literature. “DOG ON THE ROOF! On the Road with Mitt and Mutt” debuts June 19. The illustrated book chronicles the car trip that launched an advocacy group and a decade of irritating questions for Mitt Romney.

We Can’t Wait for the Book – Remember Poor Seamus…..

Did you think that the Mitt Romney dog on roof story would go away? If so, think again.

The story, which has become a thorn in the side of presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, is once again being unearthed despite his efforts to put the issue to rest. Thanks to a new book being put out by Simon & Schuster next month, Romney will likely have to brace himself for yet another wave of animal rights activism and unwelcome negative press.

The book, aptly titled “Dog on the Roof”, is a 64-page satire of the story of Seamus, the Romney family dog who rode in an overhead kennel on a 12-hour trip to Canada in the 1980

Mitt Takes Lit Hit

That infamous and seemingly immortal tale of Mitt Romney crating his dog on the roof of his car during a 14-hour road trip has already weaseled its way into the narrative of the 2012 campaign and is now splashing its way onto America’s bookshelves.

The Romney family’s now-deceased Irish setter Seamus’ story is being cemented in history in a 64-page satirical book, “Dog on the Roof,” set to be released June 19.

“Politics is hard for most people, including me, to keep their head around,” [Scott] Crider [founder of Dogs Against Romney] said. “Big discussions about universal health care and the debt issues and all these things are really big and complex for busy people to really be able to wrap their heads around.”

“This thing about Seamus cuts right through all that,” he said.

And while the story has already incited pet lovers, pestered the presidential candidate and punctuated attack ads, a national book tour devoted solely to propagating the decades-old event will likely reinvigorate the Seamus saga, which Romney has tried to put to sleep.

“Now for the first time, here is the completely true—and only mildly embellished— shaggy-dog story of Seamus Romney,” reads the books description. “It is the inside (well . . . overhead) look at the Man Who Would Be President and the wild ride that’s sweeping—and bewildering—the nation.”

The book’s intention is to be humorous, and it certainly sounds that way, but many take the story seriously, namely Sean [sic] Crider, the founder of Dogs Against Romney. Crider told ABC News that the “Dog on the Roof” story shows Romney’s “overall appearance of meanness.”

“It’s a character illuminating anecdote about Romney for a lot of people,” Crider told ABC News. “A lot of people are just pure dog lovers and see what he did as being abusive; others see it as a little window about what kind of guy he is.”

Dog on the Roof, for those interested, will be available on bookshelves next month.

Dancing Horses!?

Mitt Romney cares more about his eight multimillion dollar

horses than he did for his dog, poor old Seamus!

Mitt Romney's Dog and Horse Problem

Dancing “Dressage” Horse

The Romneys own a herd of dancing horses, competitive dancing horses (not just regular, run of the mill stallions, or even just derby racing horses.

Most Americans do not have the choice or the financially stability to own a horse, while the Romney family owes eight. Dressage horses can come with six-figure price tags that require sponsors like the Romneys to pay for veterinarian visits, care and support staff, and insurance. They also cover the enormous burden of paying for the animal’s transport so it can attend in dressage competitions further away. 

According to Kenneth J. Braddick, a dressage enthusiast, “it runs thousands of dollars a month to maintain.” The sponsors, including the Romneys financially look after these horses like one would a professional human athlete; complete with a farrier, chiropractor, and even masseuse for the horses.
