Joint Base Andrews, MD - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney today unveiled his plan to install a customized dog carrier on the top of Air Force One if elected president.
Romney was seen speaking with mechanics at the hanger that houses the presidential plane. Reporters overheard Romney asking the mechanics if the roof of the plane could support a "two feet by two feet cardboard box" with a hole cut in the front for the dog to "see the clouds."
Reporters stated that the mechanics seemed both puzzled and upset by Romney's questions and "wanted to throw a wrench at him" but didn't due to his Secret Service protection.
Romney showed the mechanics a drawing of what he wanted them to install if he is elected president. The drawing appeared to be in crayon and simply showed a dog inside of a box with the words "woof, woof, weeeeeeeeeee!" in a caption bubble above the dogs head. The drawing had a listing of the materials needed for his project which included "dog, box, glue, Air Force One."
We attempted to reach Romney's dog for comment, however, during the time Romney was speaking with the mechanics, his dog appeared to be secured inside of a small carry on bag that was duct-taped to the roof of a nearby black Suburban.
