Before ABC became a Communist network (teasing, only slightly) they used to be a pro-American, patriotic station that aired pro-US docu-dramas, one of which, Miracle of the White Stallions (1963), described how General George Patton saved the Lipizzaner horses during WWII.
This would make sense, since before Patton was assigned to mechanized cavalry (tanks), he had been assigned to the horse cavalry:
After engaging in Brian Ross level of investigative journalism, aka, conducting a desultory internet search, I've decided to call Patton a Republican due to an alleged quote that he may or may not have made:
"Politicians are the lowest form of life on earth. Liberal Democrats are the lowest form of politician."Admittedly, his ancestors fought for the wrong side in the US Civil War (boo hiss...aka for Jeff Davis) and thus, he might have been a Democrat, but I'll assume that he was a Republican, instead, for my ideological purposes of asserting that Patton served in a long line of awesome Republicans who preferred horses over donkeys, such as General Grant:
and, of course, the awesomest of all, Ronald Reagan:
I think that Democrats are monomaniacally obsessed with hating horses, since their stupid mascot mammal is a stupid donkey from Inside the Apple Friday, January 15, 2010 post "Thomas Nast's Democratic Donkey":
Democrats keep on repeating the false meme that the Romneys took a $77K tax deduction on their dressage horse, whilst Slate (left of center publication) has debunked this:
The Romneys reported $77,731 in "passive losses" related to their investment in Rob Rom Enterprises, but of that their account only deemed $50 to be actually eligible for deduction
The Romneys took a $77K loss, versus a deduction, minor detail, silly donkeys.
Additionally, the Romneys are subsidizing the US Olympic Team, which is completely privately funded, versus most countries who receive tax payer backing.
Lastly, as Neil Cavuto pointed out, Ann Romney uses horse therapy for her MS, so leave her and her horse alone, silly donkeys.
