Recently, it has emerged that, despite Mitt Romney's claims that his dog Seamus loved riding on top of their car and Ann Romney's claims that Seamus lived to a ripe old age, two of their sons "had an off-record conversation with reporters where they revealed the dog ran away when they reached their destination on that infamous journey in 1983."

There are a lot of reasons that Mitt Romney should never be president, and there are those who would argue this is the least among them. I am personally of the opinion that a man who mistreats an animal in his care and then lies about it has breached a sacred trust, and yet one of the easiest to uphold for anyone with a functional sense of empathy. He has disqualified himself.
