So I was going to start a Mitt Romney flip-flop list and I was doing some research into his position on gay marriage. I stumbled upon this video of Romney doing an interview on Hardball.
I don't know what that whole "one man and one woman" - Mormonism thing was about. It seemed pretty uncalled for to me, just an attempt to ram a shiv into Romney's side, it seemed to me.
I also stumbled upon something else on a conservative website trashing Romney:
Nov. 18, 2003 Romney responds to SJC ruling with four-sentence statement implicitly recognizing SJC’s authority, says only remedy will be a constitutional amendment: “I disagree with the Supreme Judicial Court. Marriage is an institution between a man and a woman. I will support an amendment to the Massachusetts Constitution to make that expressly clear. Of course, we must provide basic civil rights and appropriate benefits to nontraditional couples, but marriage is a special institution that should be reserved for a man and a woman.”
Here, Romney talks about A man and A woman, not ONE man and ONE woman, so Matthews comments were utterly baseless. Injecting Romney's Mormonism was utterly baseless and snide. Just a thought.
