Seamus, Willard “Mitt” Romney’s Irish setter who traveled with his young family strapped to the roof of their station wagon, “loved” those trips despite once getting ill, Ann Romney told ABC’s Diane Sawyer in an exclusive interview.

So now, the story is that that they did it several times and the dog actually loved it?!

I call bullshit. Twice.

Abusers always justify their abuse. From Dogs Against Romney:

Mitt Romney’s Hopelessly Narcissistic View of Animal Cruelty

The Romneys participated in a nationally televised interview with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer last night, during which they had the opportunity (thanks to Dogs Against Romney) to answer questions about the famed “dog-on-roof incident” in which the Romney’s admit to travelling (at least once, and perhaps frequently) with their family pet strapped to the roof of their station wagon as if he were luggage.

Mitt Romney, when asked by Sawyer if he would do such a thing again, said “Certainly not…,” which would have been a fantastic answer had he not been compelled to add a totally narcissistic qualifier, “…with all the attention it’s received.”

I repeat: “Certainly not…  with all the attention it’s received.”

In other words, Mr. Romney still sees nothing wrong with what he did (despite the fact that 68% of Americans say it was “inhumane”) and the only reason he wouldn’t do it again is to avoid personal political backlash.

It is stunning – and disappointing – that the Romneys just don’t get it.

Ann Romney went on to tell Diane Sawyer that Seamus got diarrhea because he had eaten some “bad turkey off the counter.” So… they poisoned the dog… then tied him to the roof to compound his misery?!

“Some people stop digging when they find themselves in a hole. The Rmoney’s just get a bigger shovel. I hope they just keep talking. It will be the best thing that ever happened for the Democratic Party.” – Arkansas Granny
