Animal welfare is a matter of perspective
From Seamus Romney’s car trip to Bo Obama’s bunny ears, canines are an issue in 2012. But does it make sense to judge a candidate by his behavior toward animals?
The story of Mitt Romney’s dog being strapped to the roof of the family car 30 years ago is trivial, and certainly more forgivable than some widely condoned forms of animal cruelty, like dog racing, which was legal in Massachusetts during Romney’s gubernatorial term.
