Piling on

Oh I resisted jumping all over the Wandering Mittser yesterday when Bay Windows outed him as a gay rights supporter only when the political winds demanded. And I ignored it when the Globe followed suit -- figuring Dan Kennedy tied it up nicely.

But the word is spreading -- finally -- about Romney's penchant for being for something before he is against it.

How does “We must make equality for gays and lesbians a mainstream concern" mesh with his almost Messianic zeal to oppose same- sex marriage. Not even the verbally gymnastic Eric Fehrnstrom could reconcile these opposing concepts.
"Governor Romney believes Americans should be respectful of all people. What he opposes are the efforts of activist judges who seek to redefine the longstanding institution of marriage being between a man and woman."
Nope, Mitt appears to be facing a problem with the very people he has been ardently wooing. Take for example, the words of Paul Weyrich:
Unless he comes out with an abject repudiation of this, I think it makes him out to be a hypocrite. And if he totally repudiates this, you have to ask, on what grounds?”
He'll just probably have someone come out and say he's a gay-bashing Mormon faking it as gay friendly.
