In 2007, when confronted by Anderson Cooper about his 1994 statements to the Log Cabin Republicans where he said that he looked forward to the day when homosexuals can serve "openly and honestly in the military", Mitt claimed that he no longer found these views to be necessary since "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" "appeared to be successful."

governor romney you said in nineteen
ninety four that you look forward to the

0:00:03.440,0:00:07.370
day when gays and lesbians could serve
and I quote, "openly and honestly in our

0:00:07.370,0:00:10.599
nation's military". Do you stand by that?
This isn't that time.

0:00:10.599,0:00:14.539
This is not the time. We're in the middle of a war,
the people who have watched...Do you look

0:00:14.539,0:00:16.279
forward to that time though, one day?

0:00:16.279,0:00:18.880
I can listen to people who run the
military to see what the circumstances

0:00:18.880,0:00:23.099
are like and and my view is that at
this stage this is not the time for us

0:00:23.099,0:00:25.860
to make that kind of a change. Is there a change in
your position... Yeah, I didn't think it would work

0:00:25.860,0:00:28.009
I didn't think that Don't Ask Don't Tell
would work.

0:00:28.009,0:00:30.480
that was my... I didn't think that would
work. I thought that was a policy, when

0:00:30.480,0:00:33.800
i heard about that I laughed, I said, "that doesn't make any
sense to me," and you know what it's been

0:00:33.800,0:00:37.880
there now for what fifteen years? Seems to have
worked. so just unclear at this point

0:00:37.880,0:00:41.220
do you still look forward to a day when
gays can serve openly in the military, or no

0:00:41.220,0:00:42.380
longer?

0:00:42.380,0:00:45.450
i look forward to hearing from the military
exactly what they believe is the right

0:00:45.450,0:00:47.360
way to have the right kind of cohesion

0:00:47.360,0:00:54.360
and support in our troops and
I'll listen to what they have to say.
