I was astounded to read on Andrew Sullivan's blog (here; he found it here) that Mitt Romney strongly supported gay rights when he ran against Ted Kennedy for the Senate in the early 90's. Given Romney's pandering to the religious right and Romney's latest moves against gay equality, Sullivan wonders:
Here's a simple test: can a Republican candidate in 2008 repeat Romney's words of 1994: that he respects "all people regardless of their race, creed, or sexual orientation." Bush has never been able to say those two words: "sexual orientation". Romney has. Will he ever say them again? Let's keep an open mind, shall we?
It's the wrong question. The right question is why Governor Empty Suit is even being discussed as a serious candidate for anything. He can't tell the truth. Probably, he's so used to trying to say what people want to hear that he has no idea what he believes.
He will say anything to anyone to get elected anywhere.
