During GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's stop in New Hampshire today, gay veteran Bob Garon totally put Mitt in his place!
While at his NH campaign stop, Mitt sat down at a table next to Garon and shouted "Vietnam veteran!"
At that point, Garon questioned Romney about New Hampshire's gay marriage law, and he asked the presidential candidate if he supported a repeal of the law, which "allows same-sex couples to get married."
Here's what Romney had to say in response:
"I support the repeal of the New Hampshire law. I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. That's my view."
And here's what Garon said to that:
"It's good to know how you feel, that you do not believe everyone is entitled to their constitutional rights."
"No, actually, I think at the time the Constitution was written it was pretty clear that marriage is between a man and a woman. And I don't believe the Supreme Court has changed that."
And here's what Garon said when an aide tried to get Romney out of the situation:
"Oh, I guess the question was too hot."
AND here's what Garon had to say following his Romney encounter:
"I was undecided, [but now] I'm totally convinced today that he's not going to be my president — at least in my book. At least Obama will entertain the idea. This man is 'no way, Jose.' Well, take that 'no way, Jose' back to Massachusetts."
Thanks for standing up to hate, Bob! We couldn't agree more with everything U had to say!
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
