    Link: Romney`s Dog Rides On Roof Of His Car For 12 Hours - Romney took the family dog on a 12-hr trip tied to the roof of his car in an `airtight` kennel. Was it inhumane I-A-B?

    Other than this stupidity, WHY IS THIS GUY LEADING THE REPUBLICAN RACE?

    He`s a complete moron, the people who want Obama out (because Obama doesn`t favor the middle class enough) are the very people who want this guy in... This guy who is in the 1% of the 1%. You really think this guy will favor the 99%/Middle Class?

    This guy`s business model is the reason the budget is as messed up as it is. HE IS NOT THE ANSWER TO A FAIR COUNTRY. HE IS AN ABSOLUTELY HORRENDOUS AND FAKE CANDIDATE! How can ANYONE not see it?

    This guy doesn`t want to be President for the people, he has a business agenda to push for himself to get even richer. I don`t trust him, I don`t like him. GRAH, I`m Canadian and I`m frustrated, how Americans haven`t rioted at his rallies is beyond me.

    This happened in 1983. Must have been fed to Fox News by one of the researches on an opposing research team, maybe Newt`s. This is the trash that journos are putting out now. I hate this politician, but c`mon, is this the best you can do Fox?

    I`m really starting to get unnerved by Romney`s constant laughing at ever question he is asked. I can`t decide if he honestly thinks the question is ridiculous, (in which case his moral compass is questionable at best) or if he`s just trying to play the question off as ridiculous. (in which case he is disturbingly wrong in his assessment of how Americans care about their family members). Either case is demeaning to the interviewer, who said as much in the interview. In this specific context, I`m incensed that he doesn`t understand why its wrong to carry a dog on a roof. (And God I HOPE that the carrier WASN`T air-tight. The dog certainly wouldn`t last very long...)

    Who gives a poo? It`s not like this has anything to do with him being President. It`s not like he`s going to leave the nuclear launch codes on the top of his limo for 12-hours.

    I`m not saying I like the guy, I`m just saying "WHO GIVES A FLYING drat?!"

    "I`m just saying "WHO GIVES A FLYING drat?!""

    Lots of people. Which is why Gingrich specifically brought this subject back up. This isn`t something we all just found out about, it`s just more dirty campaigning.

    All of that said, I`d really have to see the "airtight" kennel before making any sort of judgement. Dude`s got money, so I wouldn`t be surprised if it was a rather elaborate custom job, in which case I could see little distinction between the roof and the bed of a normal truck.

    What`s the difference if it was on the roof top or in the back of a pickup?

    "completely airtight kennel"...Nope...he would have suffocated if it was.
    "We kept him in the kennel all the time at home too". Why? If you trined your dog to be sociable and well behaved, he`d never have to be in a crate at home.
    "He loved it in there" Really? Is that why you had to pull over to hose him off because he crapped all over himself in fear?
    "I wasn`t aware of the law" Ignorance of the law is no excuse to break it, but feel free to use that as your campaign slogan you slimy little walking cumbucket.

    I do have a standing you narrow-minded prick. If you think your country being run by a complete moron won`t affect the rest of the world, you`re GREATLY deluded. I may not be a voter, but have as much a right as you and your friends to engage in discourse about your corrupted politics.

    For what it`s worth, Canadian politics are a snore-fest, so I follow yours. I consider it my "soaps" (in the same sense an old lady enjoys soaps, or an SC Fan never misses a WWE match)

    At some point during their 12 hr. trip to Canada (seriously) the dog had to go and moments later his sons alerted him to "brown liquid" leaking down the back of the car. He stopped, sprayed the crate down w/ a hose and continued on w/ the trip.

    This story is all over the place, and it has even inspired a neologism for itself. The new meaning of "Romney" is now: "To defecate in terror." I`m not kidding.

    All right, I`ve a few things to say:
    1) If it`s airtight, the dog will run out of oxygen
    2) If you`re a Presidential candidate, how do you not know that animal cruelty is illegal?
    3) When are people going to stop taking Romney seriously? I have.

    It`s different from riding in the back of a truck because the trucks cab keeps the wind from blasting you completely in the face.

    So if it`s airtight then how did it last 12 hours? Leaving a dog in any kennel for more than 8 hours is not the nicest thing in the world to do, but I wouldn`t necessarily go so far as to say inhumane. Although since it`s Romney I wouldn`t doubt that he`d sell his dog`s legs if he could make a tidy profit.
