Could this be the incident that proves Romney to be the cruel, heartless man many of us suspect? From the New York Daily News:

Seamus Romney absolutely “loved” his wild rooftop rides, at least according to his mom.

Ann Romney opened up about their family dog, who was strapped to the roof of their car in a crate during vacations in the 1980s — insisting the pet pooch looked forward to the trips despite once getting sick.

Her husband, likely Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, has come under fire from animal activist groups after he revealed how the long-deceased Irish setter traveled with the family.

The left has used the trips to paint the White House hopeful as uncaring.

“The dog loved it,” Ann Romney told ABC’s Diane Sawyer on Monday. “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.”

Ann Romney confirmed the details of one of Seamus’ trips that has come under particular scrutiny — a 12-hour drive from Boston to Canada in 1983.

During the ride, the dog got sick and defecated all over himself and the windshield of the car. That prompted the former Massachusetts governor to get out of the vehicle and hose it down before putting the canine back on the roof for the rest of the trip…

    Why did Diane Sawyer grill Romney about this dog incident, while she asked President Assad of Syria about his iPod rather than about the thousands of murdered Syrians?

    That’s some kind of sick Rob Lowe-esque manage Seamus’s got going on in that picture, with the two underage kittens and everything.

    For my money that’s the real scandal here:  interspecies orgies.

    search for – dog carrier motorcycle – dog carrier pickup – This is a perfect way to go after the hunters. Don’t go after their guns. Get them for animal cruelty for making their dogs ride in the back of the bus. With the wind blowing on them. It’s monstrous. Also get people who let their dogs stick their noses out the car window. If I were religious I would want them to suffer for being so cruel.
