Santorum Camp Attacks Romney for Strapping Dog to Car's Roof

Polls and pundits show former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum leading the GOP race for the Republican presidential nomination. Following Tuesday’s Southern primaries, in which Santorum won Alabama and Mississippi, Romney called the Santorum campaign “desperate.” In response, Rick Santorum’s campaign is using Romney’s treatment of his now-deceased dog, Seamus, to show that Romney lacks good judgement. Romney has admitted to strapping his Irish Setter’s kennel to the roof of his vehicle during 12 hour trip to Canada, but claims the dog loved it.

“Quite frankly, I’m not sure I’m going to listen to a value judgement of a guy who strapped his own dog on the top of a car and went hurling down the highway,” top Santorum adviser John Brabender said Wednesday on CNN’s ‘Starting Point.’ Brabender is one of many who find Romney’s treatment of his family pet to be reprehensible. Dogs Against Romney, an Internet-based campaign, has more than 37,000 Facebook fans.

While it’s true that Romney’s treatment of his dog undoubtedly reveals “poor judgement,” whether or not Santorum’s campaign is speaking from a place of genuine concern for animal rights and welfare remains to be seen.

    Don’t forget the Seamus crossword, “Did Gail Collins Ever Mention …?” Please Google for Gail Collins crossword.

    InSantitorium needs to stop acting as if he cares for animals. It was just a few days ago when he said it was wrong for critters to be valued above humans. So he only cares about animals if he feels it will work in his advantage.

    Somebody should strap Santorum to the roof of a car and go for a 1200 miles joy ride!

    I suppose it’s good that he’s reminding the public of this thoughtless abusive behavior by Romney; but it’s pretty hypocritical that he’s SUDDENLY all about saving the animals. If Romney hadn’t been the one committing the offending behavior, I’m sure he wouldn’t have considered it worth mentioning.

    It’s not about valuing one kind of life OVER another (that’s pretty hypocritical in itself), it’s about having a fundamental respect for life, each other, and our planet. We are closer now than we ever have been to the point of no return with all the damage we’ve done for the sake of convenience and consumerism. Anyway, enough preaching. LOL

    Take care of yourself, treat each other well, and behave and consume thoughtfully. Nobody’s perfect, but anyone can improve and make a difference!

Verbally abusing your vegan friends isn’t edgy, it’s just being a bully

If you’re a vegan who has had to deal with this, and especially if you come from a background of being abused in other ways, you are absolutely not alone
