Ann Romney was asked today if “a lesbian mother should be allowed to marry her partner?,” and outright refused to offer any answer, instead calling marriage and abortion “hot-button issues that distract.”
KWQC Anchor David Nelson: “Here in Iowa, as you know, same-sex marriage is legal. Do you believe a lesbian mother should be allowed to marry her partner?”
Ann Romney: “You know, I’m not going to talk about the specific issues. I’m going to let my husband speak on issues. I’m here to really just talk about my husband and what kind of husband and father he is and, you know, those are hot-button issues that distract from what the real voting issue is going to be at this election. That, it’s going to be about the economy and jobs.
And, frankly, the President said four years ago that if he doesn’t turn this economy around he’s going to be looking at a one-term presidency. And I frankly believe that Mitt is the person that is so going to be focused on jobs and job creation and making sure that women’s economic prosperity is more certain and by the way their children’s future is because as we all know we’re facing this debt crisis. Sometime, somewhere, somehow someone’s going to have to pay off these debts, and it’s going to be our children. And we have to, it’s getting to be a desperate situation. We will be looking at a Greece-like situation or a Spain situation if we don’t address these issues very quickly.”
Mrs. Romney was also asked about abortion and offered an equally empty response. It’s beyond comprehension how Ann Romney, who positions herself as an advocate of women and women’s rights, refuses to answer two simple questions.
