WASHINGTON – The Doggy Wars between Romney and Obama escalated. Romney left his dog on his car roof and… Barack found a meal!
The Dog War between President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney is officially out-of-control. Another rogue Secret Service team was sent to Romney’s campaign headquarters and reportedly stole a Republican campaign dog, Huckabee. Many assumed that Huckabee was being held captive by the DNC, but WWN has learned from sources close to several Washington dogs, that President Obama ate the dog for lunch today.
“He had a Huckabee burger,” said a White House aide.
The Romney camp was quick to respond. They stole Obama’s dog, Bo, and put him on the roof of a campaign bus, but Bo jumped down and ran back to the White House.
Meanwhile, the President was complimenting the Huckabee burger. “Best dog I ever had,” Obama reportedly told a White House waitress.
Democrats and animal rights advocates have criticized Mitt Romney for years because of the way he transported the family dog when he took his family on vacation in the early 1980s.
Romney placed the dog – an Irish setter named Seamus – into a crate and strapped it to the top of the car for a 12-hour drive from Boston to Ontario. At one point, Seamus got diarrhea, which required Romney to pull over to the side of the road and wash off the windshield.
New York Times columnist Gail Collins and groups like “Dogs Against Romney” have spotlighted the incident, arguing that it provides an unflattering insight into Romney’s character. To the frustration of the Romney campaign, it’s gotten enough traction that Romney and his wife Ann were asked about the story during an ABC News interview this week. Ann Romney said in the interview that Seamus “loved” the experience of being in the crate and that it was “a kinder thing” to bring the dog with the family than to leave him in a kennel.
The counterattack began when President Obama acknowledged he ate dog as a child. Mr. Obama wrote in his memoir “Dreams of My Father” that he was “introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy)” while living in Indonesia between the ages of six and ten. Wrote the Daily Caller’s Jim Treacher: “Say what you want about Romney, but at least he only put a dog on the roof of his car, not the roof of his mouth.”
The War on Dogs is officially on. Better keep your dogs at home… Romney and Obama might be coming for them!
