Bothering Romney over and over about Seamus is rather childish (snicker) . . .

Much more substantial is how incompetent a public figure has he been and how disasterous would Romney be as President if he cannot after all of these years (it was first published in 2007) craft a half baked semi intelligent response over something that he knows he is going to be asked about?

A Romney President would be like a daily remix of Jean Paul Satre's Nauseau and Bill Murray's Groundhog Day. Hundreds of millions would be reduced to existential vomit inducing angst like Satre's Antoine Roquentin mixed occassionally by the psychotic humor breaks of Bill Murray's Phil Connors.

If he cannot dispatch this one issue with a sensible if untrue answer after all of these years then what would happen to all of us having to listen to a President constantly twisting in the wind trying to express basic intelligent human thought.

For the record this is Romney's prepared response to the torture of the family pet Seamus on the road to Canada. In this video Romney's response to the question is so close to vomit inducing embarassment that his handler terminates the interview with the Wall Street Journal:






http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2011/12/21/romney-and-seamus-the-dog/

In an interview ranging from the candidate’s shift to a general election tone to the causes of the financial crisis, The Wall Street Journal asked Mr. Romney to give his side of the Seamus story.

“Uh…,” Mr. Romney said, clearly at a loss for words. “Love my dog.”

“That’s all I’ve got for ya,” he added.





"Love my dog.” “That’s all I’ve got for ya,”.


Think about listening to that kind of a dribble at a Presidential Press conference and then the days and months and years following that single press conference trying to get some semblance of cognitive resonance from that twerp. Can you feel the bile starting to coagulate and reside in the back of your throat, the gagging reflex beginning as you begin to search for a receptacle that you can deposit your stomach's remaining mulch from the afternoon meal?

An entire nation suffering from 4 years of Bulimia nervosa.
There is a reason that this issue continues to, yes, it had to be said, continues to dog Romney.

An entire nation strapped to the roof of Romney's car desperately trying to find momentary relief from the naseau that the addle brained driver inflicts on millions.

There are no articles of impeachment for causing mass barfing.

1. I could never have anything but extreme contempt for someone with such callous disregard...

for the well being of that poor dog. With not a shred of hyperbole, this thing goes to my very soul--as it surely does for others.

That man is a sociopath.

2. The story connects because Mitt cares as much about his dog as he cares about the average guy.

Not at all.

Is it coming back to bite him? If we have anything to do with it, it is.

5. It was disgusting to treat his pet in this manner in the first place

Seriously, a total lack of critical thinking skills.
He can't use lack of money as an excuse...(like there could ever BE an excuse).

8. Romney finally comes clean about why he put a dog on his car

Journalist: Mr. Romney, you've shifted your story several times on why you put a dog on the roof of your car for a family vacation. First you stated that your dog Seamus liked fresh air. Then you indicated that his crate was air tight. Recently you stated that you built a windshield for your dog's crate.

Romney: Allright. That's a fair question. The truth of the matter is that I actually asked Seamus at the time whether he preferred riding in the car with the family or on top of the car. I distinctly remember his answer was "roof, roof". You can quote me on that.

9. Seamus is too good a story to go away. It will dog him right up to the fall election. He might as

well go with it and find a way to joke about it.

10. "It will dog him". Well said.

I'm not going to forget. And that same psycho mindset that lent to the cruelty then is still reflected in his attempt to justify it. I'm very sure all the attention it gets is a real head scratcher.

Dana Milbank was on Lawrence O'Donnell's show tonight. He brought his dog with him to talk about this very subject. He said he rarely goes anywhere without her. It was a great interview.

Dogs rule. Plain and simple.
