Mitt Romney Approaches Married Gay Couple To Tell Them Their Marriage Is Wrong (VIDEO)

Mitt Romney’s campaign just can’t get it together. Actually, I don’t blame his campaign. The problems are purely Mittens’. I am beginning to believe that Romney lives in such an ivory tower, that he truly has no idea that not everyone is exactly like him. Sure, there are his employees (or at least the ones he didn’t fire). There are his servants, but none of them are really people in Mitt’s eyes, at least not in the way that corporations are.

How else do you explain the $10,000 bet, or explaining that he fired his undocumented gardeners because, “I’m running for office, for Pete’s sake.” Of course, there was “Corporations are people, my friend.” How about the time he told a group of unemployed people that he, the multi-millionarie, was “also unemployed.” Or the weird time he said “Who let the dogs out” when speaking to a group of African Americans.


My absolute favorite Romneyism came while Romney was touring a restaurant in New Hampshire. He approached a couple of men sitting at a table. They were both proud veterans. They were both approaching retirement age. They were also both married…to each other. Apparently, Romney either thinks that all gay people either look like Abercrombie and Fitch models or Marcus Bachmann. Either that, or he just doesn’t know when to shut up, because he tried to argue with the couple that marriage should be between a man and a woman.

Mitt Romney, while  touring the Chez Vachon restaurant in Manchester, sat down at a table with two older men, one of whom was wearing a “Vietnam Veteran” hat.

Bob Garon, 63, of Epsom, N.H., asked Romney if he, as president would seek to overturn New Hampshire’s law legalizing gay marriage. Romney gave his standard response affirming his belief that marriage is between a man and a woman.

Garon, who is gay and was seated with his husband, Bob Lemire, then said to Romney: “It’s good to know how you feel, that you do not believe everyone is entitled to their constitutional rights.”

Romney replied: “Actually, I think at the time the Constitution was written marriage was between a man and a woman and I don’t believe the Supreme Court has changed that.”

Naturally, the couple wasn’t at all happy with the uninvited guest telling them that their marriage was unconstitutional, with the implication that he might overturn the law that allowed them to get married in the first place.

Garon, a political independent later, told reporters he was unimpressed with Romney.

“The guy ain’t going to make it,” he said after the exchange. “You can’t trust him. I can see it in his eyes.”

Garon said he was married in June. “In New Hampshire, where it’s legal. Unless Mitt Romney gets elected.”
