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.

Mitt is Mean’s Brad Bannon: Obama Has Right to Question Romney Business Credentials

Obama Has a Right to Question Romney’s Business Credentials – Brad Bannon

Karl Rove believes the best way to damage a candidacy is to undermine the candidate’s strength. Mitt Romney is running as the guy with the experience to fix the economy. Making the sale against the bully from Bain is the best way to undermine Romney’s campaign. Democrats learned this lesson the hard way in 2004 when the Swift Boat Veterans destroyed the military credentials that were a big part of Jon Kerry’s campaign.

Voters don’t want a cold, calculating corporate CEO running the economy. Like a lot of other “corporate vultures” (Rick Perry’s words), Mitt made a mint shutting down companies, laying off hard-working employees, and sending American jobs to other countries. America needs more jobs, not fewer of them.

Mitt Romney’s version of cold-blooded capitalism won’t fly with the working families who are teetering at the edge of economic oblivion after decades of downsizing and income stagnation. A few guys like Romney and his banker buddies on Wall Street made fortunes as corporate pirates while worker productivity increased and wages declined. Americans won’t buy the Romney model as a way to fix an ailing economy.

While I’m on the subject, I disagree with Cory Booker’s critique of the validity of the issue. Romney’s record at Bain is fair game. He is running on his record as businessman. Americans have the right to hear the evidence and judge for themselves whether the Bain capitalist helped or hurt the economy while he ran the company.

Americans Don’t Like Mitt Romney or other Bullies

Mitt the menace.

That’s the image that emerged of a high-school-aged Mitt Romney from a Washington Post article this week that recounted allegations of his mean and even violent behavior as a prep school student in Michigan.

The allegations include shouting “atta girl!” when a “closeted gay student” spoke out in class and walking a blind teacher into a closed door after which Romney is reported to have “giggled hysterically.”

“A 2010 CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll found that 77 percent of Americans

believed that bullying is a “serious problem that adults should try and stop whenever possible.”

But nothing is more disturbing than an alleged attack on John Lauber, “a soft-spoken new student one year behind Romney” who “was perpetually teased for his nonconformity and presumed homosexuality.”

Lauber bleached his hair, which apparently “incensed” Romney.

So one day Romney reportedly led a “posse” of other boys “shouting about their plan to cut Lauber’s hair.” According to the article, the boys came upon Lauber, “tackled him and pinned him to the ground. As Lauber, his eyes filling with tears, screamed for help, Romney repeatedly clipped his hair with a pair of scissors.”

One of the boys involved described Lauber as “terrified.” Another schoolmate said that Lauber was “just easy pickin’s.” Another called the incident “vicious.”
