Mitt Romney Has ‘Heated’ Exchange With Vet Over Gay Marriage: ‘I Guess the Question Was Too Hot’

(By Jonathon M. Seidl, The Blaze) - Mitt Romney got into a heated exchange with a gay man in a diner in New Hampshire on Monday. The man, apparently a Vietnam veteran, was approached by Romney, and things got testy after the man challenged the candidate on his gay marriage stance.

That man, Bob Garon, was sitting in a booth eating breakfast with his husband. What ensued was something the Washington Post calls “a rare heated confrontation.”
