Romney Shows No Concern or Support To A Gay Veteran

Here is an interaction between Mitt Romney and a gay veteran which occurred back on December 12, 2011. It is important to bring this up now because everyone needs to realize what type of person Romney is. This whole scene both infuriates me and breaks my heart at the same time.

Romney made an appearance at the Chez Vachon Restaurant in Manchester NM. This was an event that was meant to highlight the endorsement of Romney by Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas – but the reporters attention all turned to Vietnam veteran Bob Garon of Ebson NH…. But I’m getting ahead of myself now….

Romney entered, saw Bob, and stopped to make small talk. With wearing a veteran’s hat, Romney asked him where he was stationed etc. Romney deduced that Garon and he were the same age. Now, pay close attention to Romney as he realizes that while Garon was off risking his life to defend the US, Romney skated out of the draft to go to France as his church mission. Romney does not have a good poker-face. He has the look of feeling guilty painted across his face. The conversation now moves on….

Bob Garon straight-up asked Romney what he thought of the repeal of the New Hampshire same-sex marriage law. Naturally, Romney replied that he supported the repeal, and kept reaffirming over and over again that he believes a marriage is between a man and a woman. At 1:43 Romney states, “…for me that’s a man and a woman.”

“…for me….” This is one reason among many why Romney should not be president as Romney is making decisions which will affect thousands, if not millions of US citizens because of what he believes in. I know this is becoming so “old hat” now, but any politician must learn to separate their personal beliefs from making governmental decisions.

There is one major faux pas by Romney, and it’s too bad no one picked it up, but when Garon commented that Romney does “not believe everyone is entitled to their constitutional rights,” Romney rather smugly replies:

“No, actually I think at the time the Constitution was written it was pretty clear marriage was between a man and a woman.”

At the time the Constitution was written, huh…. Well, slavery was legal when the Constitution was written. Women were not treated as equals and certainly had no part in the writing of our Constitution. Polygamy was still legal and practiced when the Constitution was written.

Here we go again with Romney “picking and choosing” what will benefit and serve his needs.

Even through President Obama believes marriage is between a man and a woman, he has come to realize that he must separate his personal beliefs in order to uphold the Constitution. Obama struggles struggled with this, but just as women and blacks fought for equal treatment, today it is gay couples fighting for equality with legal marriage. Our Constitution clearly upholds this, but most politician’s gods get in their way and scramble their brains.

This conversation made me completely angry, but by the end it broke my heart. Here is a man who risked his life to serve and protect our country, and the person who is running for president of the country Bob Garon protected is denying Bob his equal rights of same-sex marriage. This must be devastating for Bob and thousands of others like him. Fighting to defend the Constitution which is being denied to Garon.

The best part is after Romney walks away, so make sure to watch that. This video has become viral with 2.5 million hits so far – and I can completely understand why.


ABC News: Gay Veteran Steals the Show at Romney Endorsement Event


  1. Reblogged this on The ObamaCrat.Com™ and commented:
    This is vitally important, and you made an excellent point about when the Constitution was drawn up & signed, women and Black Americans were NOT included. Thank you Motley News and Photography for this post.

  2. this is surprising? rmoney shows no concern for anyone except himself. maybe his children and wife, but i’m sure he’d cut them all loose in a heartbeat should they decide to show some compassion to a peasant.

  3. Romney can’t separate what his personal beliefs are from what’s good for the country. Which is one ..of many..reasons why he shouldn’t be president.
    Today I read an article about how he wouldn’t take In God We Trust off of coins (?) The subject has never come up!! The President has certainly never said he would. He just needs something to say whether it’s relevant or not.
    Kudos to Bob Garon. I hope the word spreads about how uncaring a Commander-in- Chief Romney would be.

    • Our Pledge of Allegiance didn’t originally have “one nation under god” in it. That was added sometime early-mid 20th century.

      Who cares of the coins say that or not? They don’t even belong to the gov’t – that’s property of the Fed.

  4. Romney almost sounds like he thinks the Constitution specifically defines marriage. And like he thinks serving his church is equivalent to serving his country. No good comes from a man who would mistreat his dog …

Go ahead... I can hear your thoughts. Please share with the rest!
