Nice to see national media tracking the two-faced approach by Scott ("Wrong-Way") Walker on the marriage equity issue - - by saying thing, then doing another (unlike, for example, Chris Christie, who is not fighting same-sex marriage in court).As I noted Thursday:
Walker, like other ambitious Republican governors, is trying to strike a delicate balance.
His comments come just days after he formally appealed a federal judge's ruling striking down Wisconsin's ban on same-sex marriages, a ban he supported. But after his party's disastrous 2012 election, the Republican National Committee commissioned a report calling for more "inclusive and welcoming" tones on divisive social issues — particularly those "involving the treatment and the rights of gays."
Walker explained his court appeal as simply as his obligation as governor to defend the state's constitution.
Just a few days after he'd said he had no role to play in the legality of same-sex marriage in Wisconsin. and claimed his views had no bearing on it, "Wrong-Way" Walker has come up with a new way to take Wisconsin backwards by formally asking a federal appeals court to re-institute Wisconsin's discriminatory, same-sex marriage ban.
Untrustworthy at best, devious and dishonest at worst - - in other words, par for the course.
