Mitt Romney vs. Gay Veteran

Video

“You can’t trust him. I just saw it in his eyes.”

I love this clip for numerous reasons. I love that Romney went to the veteran, Bob, thinking he’s probably going to love Romney for all his conservative crap and give him positive publicity. I love how Romney almost seems excited about the gay marriage question, since he assumes the old, white male Vietnam veteran is going to be on his side. I love how much more fake Romney got when he realizes the guy he is speaking to is gay. I love how Romney cannot get Bob to stop speaking his mind with his vague “we apparently disagree on that” bullshit. I love how stressed out Romney’s minions get when they see the direction the conversation is going in and try to wrap it up in a hurry. I love how Bob calls him out by saying “I guess the question was too hot”. I love how Bob made sure he spoke his mind at the end before Romney ran away. I love how Romney looks like he was slapped in the face.
