Mitt Romney and Fox News' Bret Baier Butt Heads Over Attack Ads (Video)
The presidential hopeful was visibly flustered with the reporter during a rare one-on-one interview.
An interview between Mitt Romney and Fox News' Bret Baier grew palpably awkward Tuesday night when the reporter pushed the Republican presidential candidate about inconsistent political positions.
The former Massachusetts governor has come under fire lately, from both members of the G.O.P. and the Democratic Party, with ads highlighting his seemingly contradictory statements.
Baier brought up gay rights, health care, immigration and climate change as issues he's seemed to flip-flop over. This did not sit well with Romney.
“Well, Bret, your list is just not accurate," he said. "So, one, we’re going to have to be better informed about my views on issues."
Romney, who called it a "unusual interview" at one point also defended himself against the "Hollywood-style" ad released by the Democrat National Committee, "Mitt vs. Mitt."
"People are going to take snippets and take things out of context and try and show that there are differences, where in some cases, there are not,” he said.
Despite Baier's persistence, Romney maintained that all the clips were taken out of context and that he hasn't wavered on issues.
