Obama decided to make his attack on Mitt Romney’s wind energy policy personal:
Obama Brings Back Dog-on-Roof Issue When Criticizing Romney

(CNSNews.com) – While expressing his support for the wind industry, President Barack Obama took a veiled shot at his Republican opponent Mitt Romney for transporting his dog on the roof of his car almost 30 years ago in 1983, saying, “I know he’s had other things on his car.”
“During a speech a few months ago, Governor Romney even described his energy policy this way, I’m quoting here, ‘You can’t drive a car with a windmill on it.’ That’s what he said about wind power. ‘You can’t drive a car with a windmill on it,’” Obama told an audience in Oskaloosa, Iowa at the Nelson Pioneer Farm & Museum.
Obama went on to make an apparent reference to news stories concerning the widely reported 1983 vacation by the Romney family in which the family’s Irish sitter Seamus was placed in a carrier mounted to the rooftop for a 12-hour trip, with three stops. The Boston Globe first reported the matter in 2007.
“Now I don’t know if he’s actually tried that,” Obama said of Romney attaching a windmill to the car. “I know he’s had other things on his car. But, if he wants to learn something about wind, all he’s got to do is pay attention to what you’ve been doing here in Iowa.”
Obama also said, “The wind industry now supports 7,000 jobs here in Iowa, 75,000 jobs across the country. These jobs aren’t a fad. These are good jobs and they’re a source of pride we need to fight for.”
At a Romney campaign rally in Zanesville, Ohio on March 5, Romney criticized Obama on energy.
“What is his energy policy? It’s apparently to make it hard to get coal out of the ground with more regulations, makes it harder to get the gas out of the ground,” Romney said. “And as a result, while he’s happy with wind and solar – we all like wind and solar – but you can’t drive a car with a windmill on it. My plan is that we’re finally going to get America energy secure by taking advantage of our coal, our oil, our gas, and bringing in that Keystone pipeline from Canada.”
In April, dogs became more of an issue when additional news stories pointed out that in Obama’s autobiography, Dreams of My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, Obama discloses that he once ate dog meat as a child in Indonesia. Obama even joked about it at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner.
It’s frankly amazing that this cheap-shot artist Chicago thug is actually our president.
What’s good for the dog-eater ought to be good for the guy who once put his doggy carrier on the roof of his car, however.
You want to bring up Romney’s dog (who LIVED, by the way) in your attack on his energy policy?
Well, America, EAT your damn dog like Barry Hussein did and stick a propeller out of your butt to take advantage of your “natural gas.”
For the record, my own dog has repeatedly testified that she would rather be on Mitt Romney’s roof than digesting inside Barack Obama’s gut. My dog also says that she would cause as much gastrointestinal distress to our first dog-eating president in history if he ate her – such that he’d get arrested for uncontrollable speeding in his windmill fartmobile. And my dog says to vote for the guy who DIDN’T eat a dog.
And for the record, the green energy boondoggle that Obama keeps demanding for America hasn’t worked particularly well for Spain – a country that now “enjoys” 25% unemployment with young adults “enjoying” 53% unemployment. The thing is, of course, that stupid rots the brain and goes into the bones. And so this election is the harbinger for whether America wants to “enjoy” a Spain-style economy – and remember, Spain was once the mightiest nation on the planet, too – or whether we want to actually quit digging our hole deeper and start climbing out of it with Mitt Romney.
One way or another, if Obama gets re-elected, we’ll be doing something crazy to live in a world where Obama criminalized oil. Will it be Obama’s windmill fartmobile or a Fred Flintstone car, I don’t know. But it won’t be much longer before whatever it is – joke though it may be – won’t be funny.
