In slightly less than one year's time, Scott Walker goes from, "My views on same-sex marriage don't matter" to "people deserve to know what my opinion is on that."
In Wisconsin, Walker's back-tracking and just complete in-your-face reversals are his political M.O. Believe it or not. So more flip-flops are really nothing new - they're expected from him.
According to this article at Raw Story, Walker also makes the point that to him, same-sex marriage is absolutely wrong and should be illegal, yet says he would attend one, opens up the next question. How sincere are his congratulations to the couple?
But it was his closing statement that had me on the floor.
“But I think in the end, what they want to know is what are you going to do to lead America forward, not to pit one group of Americans versus another. I think we got a pretty good story to tell.”
Really?? You know, that would be a completely acceptable statement from any political candidate known for compromise and negotiating skills ...but not from Scott Walker. Not at all.
I'll say this. IF a candidate can competitively remain in the game by selling their weakest and worst points to an unsuspecting public AND make that faux narrative stick and buzz ...look out.
