“The dog loved it,” Ann Romney said. “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 said, laughing as she explained how the dog got diarrhea."
Ann Romney, appearing in a joint interview with her husband, Mitt Romney, on ABC News.
What you just read was the Romneys admitting that they indeed put their dog, Seamus, on the roof of their car for a road trip, and they also confirmed that the dog defecated on the car.
Heck, they even laughed about the dog getting diarrhea, while the dog’s insides were going haywire. The speed that the car was traveling probably induced the diarrhea, and the Romneys can only laugh about it, when the dog was in pain.
If they laugh about things like this, imagine what they would do if they were let loose on America. I shudder with horror and disgust even thinking about the nightmare that would be Romney’s presidency.
You already have Mitt saying that he doesn’t care about the poor and the middle class of America, that he doesn’t care about single mothers or non-working mothers (similar to his wife with the exception of finances). Also, you have Ann Romney admitting that her financial security (that millions of other Americans don’t have the legacy of having) enabled her to stay at home with her five sons. She admitted that because she is rich, she got to stay at home with her kids.
The Romneys expect that women voters will be falling over themselves to come vote for Mitt. That is the furthest from the truth. Comments like Ann’s and Mitt’s have alienated female voters, and they have jumped ship to Obama’s camp.
If the Romneys were smart, they wouldn’t act like spoiled rich brats when they are talking to the American people, to prospective voters.
But, hey, this is the Romneys we are talking about. They can blend in with any group of people and make them think that they actually support them. Just ask the master of political disguise: Mitt Romney.
During different times of his political life, Romney has been a conservative, a moderate, and a liberal. One thing he has never been: presidential material!!
Whether it is giving President Obama the framework for the Affordable Care Act, flipping his stances on every single political issue known to man, or resorting to talking about Michigan’s trees when asked about his disdain for the auto bailouts, Romney is a walking Freudian slip.
Banana peels have nothing on Romney’s political clumsiness!
My day begins at four in the morning, especially when my compañero is on the first shift. I prepare his breakfast. Then I have to prepare salteñas because I make about one hundred salteñas every day and I sell them on the street. I do this to make up for what my husband’s wage doesn’t cover in terms of our necessities. The night before, we prepare the dough and at four in the morning I make the salteñas while I feed the kids. The kids help me.
Then the ones that go to school in the morning have to get ready, while I wash the clothes left soaking over night.
At eight I go out to sell. The kids that go to school in the afternoon help me. We have to go to the company store and bring home the staples. And in the store are immensely long lines and you have to wait there until eleven to stock up. You have to line up for meat, for vegetables, for oil. So it’s just one line after another. Since everything is a different place, that’s how it has to be.
From what we earn between my husband and me, we can eat and dress. Food is very expensive: 28 pesos for a kilo of meat, 4 pesos for carrots, 6 pesos for onions… Considering that my compañero earns 28 pesos a day, that’s hardly enough is it?"
