What is it with these morons? For months they gleefully recalled the innocuous 30-year-old story about the Romney dog riding in a carrier atop their vehicle. Then after we found out the president himself enjoyed eating dog as a kid, well, that was the end of that nonsense. Then along came this weird obsession with Ann Romney’s horse, an Olympian horse at that. So they figured Mrs. Romney was fair game, since they have no compunction about dragging anyone and anything into the debate to avoid talking about the failed president’s abysmal record.
Well, now they’re on the defensive, which is where Team Romney needs to keep these jerks.
It seemed like a good idea at the time, but now the Democratic National Committee is offering an apology of sorts to Ann Romney.
At issue is a DNC video featuring footage of Ann Romney’s dancing show horse. The DNC used the horse in mocking way to attack Mitt Romney for not releasing his tax returns (and dancing around the issue).
The DNC introduced the video as the first in a series of videos featuring the horse, which is owned jointly by Ann and Mitt Romney.
Apparently, according to Democrats, having the audacity to own a horse demonstrably shows how unfit Romney is for the White House. Or whatever.
“Our use of the Romneys’ dressage horse was not meant to offend Mrs. Romney in any way, and we regret it if it did,” DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse told ABC News. “We were simply making a point about Governor Romney’s failure to give straight answers on a variety of issues in this race. We have no plans to invoke the horse any further to avoid misinterpretation.”
Oh, OK. We apologize if we offended anyone. Otherwise, fuck you.
Needless to say if Team Romney had the audacity to mention Mrs. Obama in any way we’d never hear the end of it.
