In a recent interview with NBC’s David Gregory, Mitt Romney attempted to explain the logic behind his views against gay marriage. According to Mitt, it will take “a long, long time to determine whether having a gay marriage make it less likely for kids to be raised in settings where there’s a mom and a dad.” Romney added, “that’s not going to happen overnight. It’s something which happens over generations, in fact.” He believes “the ideal setting for raising a child is in a setting where there’s a father and a mother.”
The Bullblog contacted Romney to see if it takes him a “long, long time” to understand other subjects on which he has an opinion.
BB: Mitt, why do you think American families shouldn’t own dogs?
MR: It will take decades to understand whether having a puppy make it less likely for kids to be raised correctly. The effects are being taken place over generations, and there is a not real way to measure any complex consequences of owning say, a golden retriever. I don’t not believe the ideal family unit is a woman, man, 6-11 children, and maybe a cat.
BB: Ohhh. So what is your definition of “raising children correctly”?
MR: It will be a long, long time before I understand the nature of that question, but I do know that the courts have too much power in this or that way or another.
So if anyone asks you if you liked the movie you saw on Friday, you can just say something like, “Oh man, it will be a few years before I understand the movie, or even determine the impact it has on me. But I hate it anyways.”
