"The tweet was a not-so-thinly veiled swipe at G.O.P. presidential front runner Mitt Romney. Earlier this month Newt Gingrich released an attack ad against Romney that honed in on the what's likely to be known as Dog Gate. As The Boston Globe reported in 2007, some 25 years ago Romney had strapped a dog crate--with his Irish setter Seamus inside--to the roof of his station wagon for a 12-hour family road trip from Boston to Ontario. Making matters for Romney worse, it came to light that during the infamous trip poor Seamus suffered from diarrhea in his crate, which the would-be presidential candidate handled by hosing the dog off at a gas station and putting him back on the car roof."
If you were a fan of Mitt Romney before, does this make you reconsider or feel differently?
