VIDEO: The Terrifying Ride of Mitt Romney's Dog

Mr. Erik Mayer, a member of our Super Pack, created this incredible video reenactment of the ride Mitt Romney's dog experienced on the roof of the Romney family car. We've always imagined how terrifying such a ride would be, but this video really brings the reality of the experience to light. The callousness - the cruelty - of subjecting a family pet to this FOR 12 HOURS, even after the dog soiled himself in fear, is difficult to fathom.

Back in 1983 when this happened, was there such thing as the inclosed plastic crate or was it a wire crate?

My bet is that it was a wire crate which would only compound the terrifying ordeal for a sick dog.

The words that I want to use to describe my anger toward Romney cannot be used in a forum like this.

two things. One, he claims to have put up a screen to keep the wind off Seamus.
Two, he sprayed him with a damn hose, so the dog was sopping wet for half the trip. Wind chill factor = ?

I hadn't even thought of the noise issue and how painful that must have been for the dog. Great re-enactment.

I cannot even imagine someone "thinking" to do this to their family pet, a living being who unconditionally loves you at all times even perhaps when they shouldn't. Just sickening. Had my concerns about Romney anyway. This just confirms my suspicions that his heart is dead.

Only problem....Mr. Mayer's dog was abused in making the video....so what's the point?

Romney's sons told reporters off the record that Seamus ran away after his ordeal:

Romney's cruelty to Seamus was horrendous, and I hope Seamus got away.

Anon Feb 29...if you watched the video carefully you'd see it wasn't a real dog in the crate. In fack it says in big type right on the screen.
