Gay Veteran Puts Mitt Romney In His Place!

gay veteran puts mitt romney in his place

Right on!

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!

    Considering how poor our economy is, and all of the serious problems this country is facing, I honestly believe making gay marriage your dealbreaker issue during this volatile time absolute trivial silliness.

    I am a proud gay man myself, but looking at the big picture and the many problems this country is faced with, I just can't put gay marriage on such a high pedestal.

    you gays need to shush up!! enjoy the view and sit down.

    "I think at the time the Constitution was written it was pretty clear that marriage is between a man and a woman."
    There were also limited rights for African Americans back then. Time changes, people change.

    Re: jlchap98 – Discriminatory practices should not be put on the back burner just because there are other issues. And when you consider that the gay marriage/gay military issues basically cost nothing, there is no excuse to push them aside - it actually costs more to fight to keep discrimination.

    um,hey clueless,obama believes the exact same thing.there is no hedging.you either think they deserve the right or not.obama believes not.having said that i do think they have the right.good luck with the baby thing though.i dont think you will get your way on that one no matter how hard you fight.you gotta hit a wall at some point.

    Okay, honestly I could care less either way- gay marriage, no gay marriage, really doesn't affect me so whatever. But could someone please point out how exactly Constitutional rights are being violated?

  7. 7

    I think when the constitution was written you could own a slave, women couldn't vote, among other things………..idiocy!

    Re: rosebud99 – unfortunately it's nearly impossible to find a candidate who's going to have the same exact stances on every issue. In my opinion it's simply trivial and frivolous to make this the deal breaker issue.

    Stup bullying the poor guy, you fucking hypocrite. Once a bully, always a bully. Thanks for making the world a significantly worse place to live!

    When pray tell, is Garon going to challenge Obama on the same issue? This is a silly story, attacking a candidate instead of the man in charge. Re: jlchap98 – Completely agreed. Equal rights for Gay marriage is important but as a country, we are facing issues that may make or break the future of our ability to support, educate and feed ourselves in addition to the generosity of giving to developing nations.

    Re: jlchap98 – Our country's economy is suffering greatly and that is a huge issue. Look at it this way, anyone opposed to Gay marriage is not for the bettering of our economy. Iowa pulled in 12 million dollars more after making Gay marriage legal. Do not call yourself a proud gay man either because clearly you aren't proud and don't give a flying fuck about yours or anyone else's rights.

    nobama had his chance to change the "official stance" in fact he PROMISED to, oops, FAILED AGAIN

    I heard Romney takes it up the ass from Newt before each debate, then felches during commercial breaks.

  14. 14

    Yeah, he can take it back to Massachusetts where gay marriage became legal while he was governor.

    perez stop getting political… haha. I wonder why these guys care about gays so much.

    Re: Nickminaj90 – Let's get a little more specific. You pulled your numbers from a Gay think tank at UCLA. $12M is not tax revenue. It's an estimate for weddings, primarily held for out of state couples. The benefit to the people of the state through taxes over 3 year has been less than $1M. So, unless you're tuned in to more TLC crap like My Million Dollar Wedding, Ma and Pa Kettle on the corn farm didn't see a nickle of this so-called economic boom.

    Romney's place is in the toilet. Right next to Newt Gingrich's bloody stool.

    Hurray to Bob!
