From Politico:

Ann Romney laughed while explaining that Seamus, the dog once owned by the Romney family, “loved” travelling on top of the family car.

“The dog loved it,” Romney told ABC’s Diane Sawyer in an interview. “He would see that crate and, you know, he would, like, go crazy because he was going with us on vacation. It was to me a kinder thing to bring him along than to leave him in the kennel for two weeks.”

“Once, he — we traveled all the time — and he ate the turkey on the counter. I mean, he had the runs,” Ann Romney explained, according to ABC News, laughing while describing the incident.

Seamus is particular famous for a 1983 trip to a summer cottage in Ontario, Canada, when he became sick and defecated on himself and the windshield of the car while riding on the roof.

And she wants you to believe she’s really a poor woman in a rich woman’s body! See?

    • Haha! :lol: I think that’s how she and her husband will run the country if they purchase the White House in November: they’ll put all the nation’s problems up on the roof to forget about them!

    • So POOR Mitt and Ann had to live on only $12,000 a year during their college years. ($377,000 in 2012 comparison).

      In 1970 the average American had income per year was $9,350.00, a new house cost $2300,400, and a gallon of gas was 36 cents that was put into your new car that then had an average cost of $3,900.00.

      That was when I was still in college, first attending a private liberal arts college for $3000 tuition a year (now $35K) before transferring to U. of Houston when tuition and fees for a full-time student was $300 a year (NOW $9,211). Actually state tuition was only $50 per semester but library, parking, and athletic facility fees tripled that!

  1. Find it hard to BELIEVE the turkey story that gave the dog diarrhea. First of all, who bakes a turkey just before you leave home for a two week vacation? (Probably baked by a hired domestic cook as somehow I can’t picture Ann in an apron with oven mitts). The “turkey” was supposedly rancid enough to make the dog sick but wasn’t it set out to feed the family? Of course, much of what comes out of Romney mouths is UNbelievable. The Romneys are such a pack of LIARS

    • Have you heard the latest “outrage” of the right wingers, Grant? They’re saying President Obama as a child living in Indonesia with his mother & step-father ate dog meat, so they think Obama is worse than Mitty strapping the dog to the top of the car for 12 hours. :evil: So freaking ridiculous! In Indonesia, it’s customary to eat dog unfortunately and there are cultures out there who are horrified that we as Americans eat COWS (they’re a religious symbol)! It’s not customary in America to eat dogs, strap dogs to the roof of the car, or to eat squirrels (remember when Mike Huckabee joked about eating them!).

      • Although eating dog meat is acceptable in some Asian nations like China, Viet Nam and Korea, it is ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE in the Muslim nation of Indonesia where eating dogs (and pigs) would be violating the holy scriptures of Islam, IOW dog meat is not “halal”…the Muslim equivalent of Jewish kosher laws. Ibn Abbaas رضى الله عنه narrates that the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم prohibited the eating of all fanged beasts, and all birds having talons [Saheeh Muslim]. Therefore, a true Muslim would never touch the meat of dogs, lions, cats, bears, crocodiles, snakes, eagles, hawks, falcons, which are all “Haraam”, IOW, FORBIDDEN!

        But leave it to right-wing haters, too stupid to know much if anything about Islam to make this crap up. What a bunch of liars, trying to make equivalency with the Romney’s odd treatment of their dog.

        • According to President Obama’s book, Dreams From My Father, he ate dog meat, grasshopper, and snake meat WHEN HE WAS 6 YEARS OLD. Hell, Mitt Romney was a grown man and decided it was perfectly acceptable to put the dog on the roof of the car and travel for 12 hours with him on there! And he laughed when the dog shit himself! Anthony Bourdain has eaten stranger CULTURE FOOD for his show than President Obama has in a lifetime, but I bet Bourdain has never tortured his dog by putting it on the roof of the car for a long trip. Spit.

          • I did read since my posting that some small non-Muslim minorities occasionally eat dog, considered a delicacy reserved for special occasions. Remote tribes in Indonesia like the Minahasa, an ethnic group in northern Sulawesi, and Bataks of northern Sumatra consider dog meat to be a festive dish. Guests of these tribes would probably partake so as not to be considered impolite. Barack’s mother was an anthropologist who studied such cultures. I am sure a 6 year old Barack was probably not even told at the time what he was eating. After all, protein is protein and doesn’t it all “taste like chicken?” ;)

            But leave it to the REICH to dredge up some controversy.

            • Eating dog as a culture food is unacceptable to the right wing but it’s perfectly okay to them to commit animal abuse as a right wing adult! :evil:

          • Hate to tell the troglodytes from the reich wing dumb as dirt party, but almost every uniformed member who has served in the Pacific rim post Korean War has eaten dog meat if they ate on the local economy, just like all of us who served in Panama ate monkey meat on the local economy.

            If they are attacking President Obama for eating dog meat as a child they by extension they are attacking the troops ……

            Why do they hate the troops so much???????

            • They’re blaming a 6 YEAR OLD again Clif! :evil: You’re exactly right….why do they hate the troops so much? There are some cultures out there that consider a cow to be a sacred animal, but yet, we Americans eat them!

            • Working at a Chicago area steel mill many year ago, my Latino workers were always bragging about the tacos at a restaurant nearby. Before I got a chance to go there, try them, the place got busted for serving “cat” tacos. Seems they were even paying a “gang” of little kids 25 cents per cat brought to their back door! But put chili powder on anything and it all tastes much the same.
