Add Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to the list of prominent Republicans that are against gay marriage, but would rather not talk about it any longer. Instead of changing their minds, or admitting that they could be wrong, it seems the party got together and decided they would go with lines like:
"My position has been clear. I voted in the past. It really doesn't matter," - Scott Walker when asked about his current position on gay marriage in a recent interview.
Looks like the Republicans got together and said look, we can't win this debate anymore. But we don't want to look like flip-floppers (i.e. Mitt Romney). So, instead, we'll side-step the questions, pretend like our opinions now mean nothing, and shift focus toward the economy and yadda-yadda-yadda.
Forget that both Rick Perry and Gov. Walker have said some outrageous things in favor of keeping gay marriage and gay rights quelled. Forget that they have been obstacles that their own state has had to circumvent in order to have sexual orientation equality. No, now they would just like to drop it, please and thank you.
Scott Walker is another GOP hopeful for the 2016 Presidency. It isn't hard to convince anyone that of the few social issues that are most important to voters in today's world, sexual orientation equality is arguably number 1, and you don't become the Commander-in-Chief being against it. At least, I hope not. Gerrymandering is tricky thing though.
