Democrats help Gingrich promote old Romney gaffes

Seamus is the name of the Romney family's dog who in 1983 rode in what Romney described as "This is a completely airtight kennel" on top of the family vehicle on a road trip from Boston to Ontario.

"He enjoyed himself," Romney told Fox News of the incident, in a clip included on a recent video by Gingrich's campaign. "We loved the dog; it was where he was comfortable. We had five kids inside the car, and my guess is he liked it a lot better inside his kennel than he would have liked it inside."

The story was reported by The Boston Globe in 2007 during Romney's first bid for the Republican nomination.
