Romney Flings Poo + Peta Boos

Sat Jun 30, 2007 1:19 pm

TIME Magizine 27 JUN 07

(Yes, I realize this took place 24 years ago)

In a nutshell: Romney strapped his dog in a dog carrier to the family station wagon for a 12 hour drive.

Another article on the incident from the Washington Post: (starts at bottom of page 1)

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...le/2007/06/29/AR2007062900693.html

His explanation says it all:

Quote:
"He scrambled up there every time we went on trips," Romney said at a campaign stop in Pittsburgh Thursday. "He got it all by himself and enjoyed it."

Yep, I'm sure the dog enjoyed 12 hours in a cage, enduring 50-some mph winds, many of them while he was soaking wet.  Yeah sure
Better to be nouveau than never to have been riche at all.

Given the choice between that and sitting next to Romney for that long, I might take the roof too!  silly
