So, what did Romney do? Well, a reporter with the Washington Examiner, Byron York, wrote about the incident as shown in the below account. 'In 1983, Romney took his family on vacation and, faced with a packed station wagon, put his Irish setter Seamus in a travel kennel strapped to the roof of the car. Romney constructed a special windshield in an effort to make the dog more comfortable, but Seamus ended up relieving himself on the roof, which reportedly caused much consternation among the Romney boys. Ever since the story got out -- it was reported by the Boston Globe in 2007, during Romney's first run for president -- Romney opponents have used it in semi serious and sometimes fully serious ways to portray him as insensitive.'"
More commentary from Ms. Rice: "That's it. Obama and his liberal allies, including late night comedians, are having a field day with this trivial story about Romney, all in an effort to distract voters from Obama's dismal record – ObamaCare that's not affordable, unemployment at 8.2%, and an economy destroying $14 trillion debt."
