Okay, so we know this video is kind of old news, as it happened back in December of 2011, but after rousing speeches all week from the Democratic National Convention (Hello! Did you see the tears in Michelle Obama’s eyes as she talked about the future of our country?! Or how about President Clinton’s complete annihilation of the GOP’s entire platform?! And, ooh, ooh, ooh, we CANNOT WAIT to hear President Obama kill it tonight!!), we thought we’d provide a little bit of reminder of Mr. Romney’s complete and total obliviousness to the world around him.
Watch as Romney chums up to Vietnam War veteran Bob Garon. Governor Romney thinks he is getting in a wholesome photo op with what he assumes to be a red-blooded, heterosexual war vet. What the robot-from-outer-space presidential nominee doesn’t know is that Garon is sitting next to his husband, whom he had married just a few months earlier. As you can imagine, shenanigans ensue! And by “shenanigans,” we mean Romney’s fear of looking like a heartless idiot makes him a bit hostile and then forces him to flee the scene as quickly as possible.
