During a stop in Manchester, New Hampshire this morning Mitt Romney suggested to 63-year-old gay veteran Bob Garon that he would support the repeal of the states marriage equality law, despite previously claiming that marriage is the purview of the states and advocating for states rights in the tenth amendment:
Garon, who is gay and was seated with his husband, Bob Lemire, then said to Romney: Its good to know how you feel, that you do not believe everyone is entitled to their constitutional rights.
Romney replied: Actually, I think at the time the Constitution was written marriage was between a man and a woman and I dont believe the Supreme Court has changed that.
Garon, a political independent later, told reporters he was unimpressed with Romney.
There's video of the exchange.
