Patch's Poll: Does The Mitt Romney Dog Story Matter?

A 1983 incident involving an Irish setter in a kennel strapped to the roof of the Romney car for a 12-hour trip continues to dog the candidate. Should it?

The story about Mitt Romney hauling his Irish setter in a kennel strapped on the roof of his car has grown to near legendary proportions since the Boston Globe first reported it in 2007.

As the Romney presidential campaign heats up after his win in the New Hampshire primary, the repercussions continue to spread. Websites are cropping up, as are Facebook pages. To "Romney" has become a verb.

(Remember when LBJ picked up his beagle by the ears?)

What do you think? Does an incident involving a family pet that happened nearly 30 years ago matter? Take our poll and add your thoughts in the comments.

While I can't say how true this report is, and I don't much like the sound of what is being said....we need to think about the times. Kids were allowed to ride in the back of a pickup standing up!! We didn't wear seat belts. We rode our bikes without helmets...you know the rigamerol, we have heard it all before. Seriously, times have changed and what might of been acceptable in the past, may not be acceptable now. Get over it and focus on the man and his politics not what he may or may not have done 28 years ago ON THE OTHER HAND, if he put his dog on the roof of his Limo now and rode around campaigning than I would say take a picture and put it on the front page of the news and have him put in prison!!! Get real people!
