Mitt Romney and the Bigoted Clinton Supporter

You may have seen this already, but if you haven't, here it is courtesy of The News Buckit.

To sum it up, a Hillary Clinton supporter (who later stated he was "a liberal") was approached by GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney in a restaurant, who respectfully asks "How are you doing, sir?"

The guy says "I'm one person who will never vote for a Mormon!" That's all, just simply shouted it right at Romney.

Romney replied "Is that so?" The guy affirmed this, and Romney asked "Can I shake your hand, anyway?"

The guy shouted "NO!" Romney said "Ok", and brushed it off with a smile.

Mitt Romney showed some top-notch class and deft ability to handle an awkward situation Hats off to him for handling it for with a smile, still showing the bigoted gentleman respect, and remaining calm. The Clinton campaign immediately disavowed the comment, stating that they "strongly disagree" with the man's comments.

However, I love this quote from Romney spokesman Kevin Madden: "I thought liberals were supposed to be the protectors of tolerance as a virtue."

I don't know, but I know that's what they tell you they are...
