Republican Mitt Romney needs a big win during today’s Michigan primary. In an effort to boost his standing, the politico popping into Larry King Live last night. Though a remarkably short interview, Romney managed to invoke his father, George, who served as Michigan’s governor from 1963-1969.
From CNN’s transcripts:
KING: As you know, I knew your father. I interviewed him a number of times. He would have been more on the liberal Republican side than you.
Would you agree?
ROMNEY: Well, you know, the — the world has changed a lot.
ROMNEY: He was with me in ’94 when I was running against Ted Kennedy. And he was as conservative as I was. You see, he would not be for same-sex marriage. He was also opposed, of course, to any discrimination against people. But he would have felt marriage was between a man and a woman.
So, you know, the world has changed and I think my dad would have been unmovable. They called him “The Brick” because he was solid as a rock. And I think — I think I’ve inherited some of that. I sure hope so.
Keep hoping, Mitt, because we all know you’re a flip-flopper with little backbone.
I voted in the Michigan primary, but I almost switched parties to vote for McCrazy to stop Mitten…
Not so fast Mitt, There is a difference between being called “The Brick” and “A Prick”.
Thanks again for reminding me of which one “You” are.
Yes, in the 60s EVERYBODY would tell you real marriage is between a man and a woman. Even gay men and lesbians would tell you that real marriage is between a man and a woman. People then would tell you that you can get the clap from a toilet seat, the tooth fairy will leave you a quarter, you have to pray in public school, and a woman or black man can’t run for president. This is not 1963. (But if it were, I’d watch The Patty Duke Show… y’know, identical cousins!)

He’s a douchebag, but he does give good hair.
I think in his heart, he thinks marriage is between a man and woman, and another woman and another woman, and that woman’s daughter, and that daughter’s cousin.
Jack Jett, you are a hoot! Thanks for that.
This is the same father who believed blacks couldn’t be Mormons, right? Lucky blacks.
