Former Mass. Governor Mitt Romney Has More Positions Than a Hooker Into Yoga

Mitt's positions on everything change with the slightest wind adjustment. From the Boston Globe:

Governor Mitt Romney's views on homosexuality have come under increased scrutiny and created a buzz on political blogs after a series of articles indicating that the potential conservative GOP presidential candidate had expressed gay-friendly positions while running for the US Senate in 1994.

The latest report came in today's editions of The New York Times, which details a 1994 letter Romney sent to the Log Cabin Club of Massachusetts, a GOP-leaning gay rights group, in which he wrote that he would be a stronger advocate for gays than his opponent at the time, US Senator Edward M. Kennedy, a long-time gay rights supporter.

"If we are to achieve the goals we share, we must make equality for gays and lesbians a mainstream concern," Romney wrote, according to the Times report. "My opponent cannot do this. I can and will."

The Times story follows a Globe story published yesterday that reported that Romney told a Boston-area gay newspaper in 1994 that legalizing gay marriage should be left up to individual states, contrasting with his more recent position that marriage should only occur between men and women and his support of a federal constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriages.

"People of integrity don't force their beliefs on others; they make sure that others can live by different beliefs they may have," Romney is quoted as saying in the Bay Windows newspaper in August of 1994. [Ed. note: No one has accused Mitt of having any integrity for a very long time.]

The scrutiny occurs as Romney positions himself for a White House run in 2008, with many political analysts ranking the one-term governor in the upper tier of Republican candidates, alongside US Senator John McCain and former New York mayor Rudoph W. Giuliani.
