While working the room, Romney spotted a man in a flannel shirt wearing a Vietnam Veteran hat and slid in next to him in a booth.
“Vietnam veteran!” Romney greeted Bob Garon.
“I have a question for you,” Garon told the former Massachusetts governor. “New Hampshire right now has some legislation kicking around about a repeal for the same-sex marriage. And all I need is a yes or a no. Do you support the repeal?”
“I support the repeal of the New Hampshire law,” Romney said. “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. That’s my view.”
Garon, who lives in Epson, N.H., and was eating breakfast with his husband, turned to Romney and said: “If two men get married, apparently a veteran’s spouse would not be entitled to any burial benefits or medical benefits or anything that the serviceman has devoted his time and effort to his country, and you just don’t support equality in terms of same-sex marriage?”
“I believe that marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman,” Romney replied, adding, “and we apparently disagree.”
At that, a Romney aide called for him to wrap up the conversation: “Governor, we’ve got to get on with Fox News right now.”
“Oh, I guess the question was too hot,” Garon told Romney.
“No, I gave you the answer,” Romney replied. “You said you had a yes-or-no [question]. I gave you the answer.”
“You did,” Garon said. “And I appreciate your answer. And you know, I also learned something, and New Hampshire is right: You have to look a man in the eye to get a good answer. And you know what, governor? Good luck…. You’re going to need it.”
“You are right about that,” Romney said, as he stood up from the booth and headed into a side room for his interview.
What a bunch of losers, thugs and "ganstas" on these two teams. If this had happened in Detroit they would have shut down the programs. Listen to the Xavier players comments at the end of this video. Huh?
Michigan State fans are angry and they should be, MSU put together a good year but they don't necessarily deserve a BCS spot over Michigan.
The Wolverines had as good or better year than MSU in every way. Michigan came back from the dead under Brady Hoke, they beat Nebraska, Notre Dame and Ohio State. The defense rose 100 spots in the scoring defense and they have the Big Ten Coach of The Year.
MSU had a great season as well, but they blew their shot last night in Indy. Everything was on the table for the spartans to take and they didn't get it done. All the whining and complaining should be directed at Mark Dantonio for calling a punt block late in the game. It wasn't necessary and was a dumb call, PERIOD.
MSU wasn't punished for losing the Big Ten Title game, they simply blew an opportunity of a lifetime! The Outback Bowl vs. Georgia is a good bowl and MSU fans should stop acting like it is beneath them, bottom line, MSU left it up to the polls.
