Mitt Romney’s campaign has come under a lot of attack in recent months after it was discovered that Romney tied his family’s dog to the roof of his car during a 12-hour road trip in 1983. Now realizing that dog lovers have come to despise the GOP presidential contenders actions the campaign is going after Obama for eating dog.
In his autobiography Dreams From My Father President Obama reveals that as a child he was fed dog meat while staying in Indonesia. Attempting to capitalize on that incident in a young Obama’s life a top Romney adviser tweeted a photo of President Obama with his family dog Bo and the caption:
“In hindsight, a chilling photo.”
It was almost a laughable moment and a rather low blow from the Romney campaign, a misstep that the Obama campaign capitalized on when one of his campaign reps tweeted in response:
“What’s the next attack @EricFehrn and the RNC will surface on a 6-10 year old?”
While Romney’s advisers likely hoped they could draw attention away from the family dog car incident instead the attack in many circles has painted Romney as an adult who made a child-like decision with his dog.
Mitt Romney came under fire once again this week over the family trip incident when during an interview with Diane Sawyer his wife Ann Romney defended his decision to tie the family dog Seamus to the roof of their car, claiming that she somehow knew how much Seamus loved being tied to the roof of the vehicle.
This isn’t the first negative campaign move we’ve seen from the Romney camp in the last few days, Romney was speaking on a conservative radio talk show for Breitbart TV when he claimed there was a “vast left wing conspiracy” in the media that hoped to derail his chances of becoming the next US President.
