President Barack Obama, on Tuesday, joked about Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney strapping his dog to the roof of his car (video below).
In Oskaloosa, Iowa, President Obama said: “I want somebody who’s fighting for insourcing. A few months ago, Gov. Romney explained 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."
“I don’t know if he’s actually tried that. I know that he’s had other things on his car.”
According to a 2007 Boston Globe article, Romney placed the family dog 'Seamus' on the roof of the family’s car during a family trip in 1983. Seamus got sick and had the runs on top of the car.
