Just In Time for the Primary: Romney Announces Support of South Carolina Veterans

No kidding, this was published TODAY on mittromney.com:

Romney for President today announced the support of veterans in South Carolina:

“I am proud to receive the endorsement of these South Carolina veterans who have selflessly and bravely fought to keep our nation safe and defend our American way of life,” said Mitt Romney. “We must continue to support all of those who have served our nation as we work to preserve those very freedoms that our veterans and troops have fought to defend.”

“Mitt Romney has been a strong advocate for veterans and will work to ensure that those who have heroically sacrificed for our country receive the care that they deserve,” said Lt. General Bud Watts, former President of the Citadel. “We need a Commander-in-Chief who will support our veterans and troops, strengthen our military, and strengthen our national defense. Mitt Romney believes in America and in the founding principles that make our country great, and he is the kind of steadfast leader we need during these challenging times.”

Good timing! Since there’s a presidential primary there soon enough, you know.

Dogs Against Romney: Mitt Really Really Abused the Family Dog Seamus

Mitt Romney tied his dog Seamus to the roof of a car for a family vacation.

The dog got sick.

Romney hosed down the dog and went on.

Abuse? You bet.

In response to a query on this Chris Wallace at Fox News, Romney says, "This is a completely air-tight kennel on the top of our car."

If the kennel was "air-tight," how did the "brown liquid" pour from the dog’s kennel atop the wagon?

If you got your last shoeshine on the tarmac at an airport — any airport — than chances are you, like Willard “Mitt” Romney have more money than most of the top 1%.

From Rachel Maddow on MSNBC:

Mitt Romney has an empathy problem. Regardless of whether he’s actually an empathetic guy, Mr. Romney remains the son of a wealthy man who then went out and made another fortunebuying companies and firing people. He’s still the guy who says that questions about income inequality amount to the sin of envy, he’s still the guy who manages to say the words “I like to be able to fire people,” he’s still the guy who offers up a $10,000 bet to prove his point. He’s still the guy who drove to Canada with the family dog in a kennel on top of the car and who responded to evidence of the family dog’s distress by stopping at a car wash to rinse it away.

The last link in the paragraph above goes to a story when Romney, like Chevy Chase’s fictional character  Clark Griswold, abused a family pet on a family vacation. Clark killed the dog when he took off with the dog tethered to the family wagon. Mitt literally scared the you-know-what out of the poor beast by strapping it to the top of the family wagon while en route to Canada.

That story is here.
