It is pretty cruel to strap your dog in its kennel to the roof of your car for a road trip. I hope we can admit that. But the important part of this clip is the part where Mitt Romney says ‘certainly not with the attention it’s received!’
This isn’t the first time he’s made this sort of comment:
Basically, he would do it if he thought he could get away with it. I suppose that’s a typical politician for you, but Mittens seems to just put this anti-democratic attitude out there for everyone to see. It’s kind of like cheating on your girlfriend and saying ‘well I didn’t think you would find out’! Pretty terrible for a lot of us to be accepting that attitude as legitimate for a presidential candidate. It serves the purpose of moving the Overton Window, which has gone steadily right for over 30 years, and we should be pulling it back.
