Why, you ask? Simple. Rafalca, and his rider/ co-owner (with Ann Romney) will be representing the United States of America and I feel it's important to remember what patriotic duty means from time to time.
It's more important that America succeeds than I have an orgasmic case of schadenfreude (and any kind of Romney defeat would trigger an epic case indeed). I think it's important, during these games, that the athletes, coaches and spectators comport themselves in the most respectful way possible.
So as much as I want Romney to lose this fall, I want his little dancing horsey to win big this summer. I want this because it is in keeping with the values, traditions and meaning of this country as I understand them.
It'd be nice if the Romneys understood this as well.
Go Team USA!
