Using footage of the horse is nothing but a minor jab at the Romneys for being the kind of out of touch rich people who participate in such a sport. But, oh no, according to Ann, it was really an unacceptable, boorish insult:
"Ann Romney, who trains with show horses as part of her therapy for multiple sclerosis, took offense in an interview with Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America...”
So, in the face of Romney surrogates accusing Obama of being an un-American, socialist foreigner who is collaborating with our enemies, on an almost daily basis, how does the gutless DNC respond?
"... and now the DNC is saying it will put out no more horse videos, and is expressing regret for offending Ann Romney."
This is the sort of contemptible behavior that has earned Democrats a reputation for being weak, fainting violets who are incapable of standing up to the weakest attack on themselves, let alone defending the country. There was not one thing wrong with this campaign spot. The DNC's response should have been to run ten more featuring the dancing horse, not to run for cover after the weakest, most pathetic attack on them.
If the DNC's miserable behavior gets currency in the press over the next couple of days, it could materially damage the great success Obama has had in (very appropriately) making Romney answer for his business practices. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, through cowardice- the DNC's specialty.
