“President Obama strayed from his prepared remarks here [in Iowa] to get in a jab at Mitt Romney's famous dog-on-top-of-car moment.
Noting that the Republican candidate has criticized wind energy, saying a windmill can't be put on top of a car to power it, Obama had a zinger.
'I don't know he's actually tried that,' Obama said. 'I know he's had other things on his car.'"
Now, if I, LV, were Romney’s speech writer here’s what I would have him say in rebutting Obama:
“As you heard the president, he seems to love dogs so much that he wouldn’t stop talking about our dog Seamus. Mr. Obama is definitely making this a dog eat dog race - it’s his style!”
Now that's a real ZINGER!
And [Reince] Priebus, Republican National Committee Chairman, on Twitter, wrote: “Obama campaign about small things - accusing Romney of being a felon & murderer. Next thing you know, they'll accuse Romney of eating a dog.”
The end of Priebus's tweet is a reference to Obama writing in "Dreams of My Father" that he ate dog meat, among other things, while a child living in Indonesia.
