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 its received."
I repeat: "Certainly not with all the attention its 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.
