Romney Scolds Reporter: 'Aren't There Issues of Significance You Want to Talk About?

News

"The economy? The growth of jobs?"

Mitt Romney would rather not rehash his position on gay marriage. Or rehash his stance on, well, hash.

As Obama was coming out with a new position on gay marriage Wednesday, Romney was inundated with questions about the same topic. In fact, a local Colorado TV reporter included a line of questioning on the topic during a one-on-one interview with the presumptive GOP presidential nominee. But that wasn't all, the reporter also wanted to know about Romney's stance on legalized marijuana. At one point during an interview with a local Colorado TV station, Romney had enough.

"Aren't there issues of significance that you'd like to talk about?" Romney snipped. "The economy? The growth of jobs? The need to put people back to work? The challenges of Iran?"

By the way, there are those who have suggested that Obama's gay marriage announcement -- and the "mistake" by Joe Biden in introducing the topic on Sunday -- was partially motivated by the desire to shift the narrative from the topics of jobs and the economy. And if yesterday was any example, it worked.
