Santorum Bites Romney Over ‘Seamus the Dog’ Controversy: Character Is Important In An Election

While the controversy surrounding Mitt Romney about putting the family dog on the roof of the car might with him the crucial Cruella de Vil vote, it hasn’t been playing well elsewhere. During his appearance on This Week today, Rick Santorum tread lightly around the issue, but did say that what I am now officially dubbing Dog-On-A-Hot-Car-Roof-gate might give voters an insight into Romney’s character.

Guest host Jonathan Karl, who either had one of those five-hour energy drinks before the show or was just really excited to be subbing in, eagerly brought up how one of Santorum’s aides made Seamus the Dog into an issue for Romney this election season. He asked the candidate if he agreed that Dog-On-A-Hot-Car-Roof-gate should be such an issue for Romney. Santorum addressed the issue somewhat dismissively, but didn’t discount it entirely.

“All I would say is, you know, the issues of character are important in this election, and we need to look at all those issues and make a determination as to whether that’s the kind of person you want to be President of the United States.”
