Caucus Cooler: And I'll drink more booze than him too!

Excerpted from this post at Caucus Cooler

Governor Romney got blasted by the East Coast establishment media this weekend on his statements regarding gay marriage. The timing of these articles is largely due to Romney's support for adding a Constitutional Amendment to define marriage to Massachusettes law. Romney's vociferous support for this legislation in the waning days of his Governorship has raised questions amongst members of the Gang of 500 mostly due to its rather convenient timing.

The amendment would be on the ballot November, 2008. First the Boston Globe-Worker takes aim at the Guvnah on Friday morning with this article.

The Globe-Worker references an interview Romney did with the gay newspaper Bay Windows in 1994. In the article Romney says, "People of integrity don't force their beliefs on others, they make sure that others can live by different beliefs they may have."

The article then points to comments made recently by Romney in South Carolina that attacks gay couples that want to have children.
