Walker largely silent of late on same-sex marriage

There are 17 comments on the WLUK-TV Green Bay story from Jun 12, 2014, titled Walker largely silent of late on same-sex marriage. In it, WLUK-TV Green Bay reports that:

Gov. Scott Walker has a history of forcefully opposing same-sex marriage in Wisconsin, but he's been much quieter on the topic recently as the state's ban was determined to be unconstitutional and polls show public attitudes shifting in favor of allowing gay couples to wed.

Anyone running for Gov. in Wisconsin will be facing a T-bagger challenger. The Republican's fair-haired boy just got skunked by them in Virginia. Vote splitting is a real threat.

He'd better keep his yap shut, or Wisconsin might find itself under T-bagger rule right quick.

I think Walker sees the writing on the wall. Too bad he doesn't have the stones to say so.

At least he's not a gutless coward like some Democrats who shamelessly left their respectful state to avoid a vote. Remember that one?

Maybe Walker is afraid to admit he's changed his mind just as Hillary and many other Americans have. Maybe he's afraid of the attacks he'll get.

Maybe when you're getting your butt kicked on every down (like the Broncos were in Super Bowl XLVIII this past February), it's best to keep your head down and your mouth shut.

I would not be quick to accept that they have changed their minds as much as their minds were changed for them. As the people lead, our politicians follow. It is gay people who are changing the minds of Americans. It is good that the ruling elite change even if it is only to get reelected and not because of any humanitarian reason or because they want to do the right thing. All they are interested in is making government bigger and themselves more powerful.

All the more reason why the stances politicians take need to be more than just gauging which way the current winds are blowing and climbing on board. Maybe if he had thought about the situation and it's unconstitutional discrimination based solely on other people's religious beliefs, he might not have jumped on the hate bandwagon in the first place.

Politicians that jump on whatever bandwagon is currently driving by that's got the most people on it deserve what they get when later it becomes obvious that that's what they did. And that they were wrong for doing it.

I was just thinking the same thing lately... that Walker either isn't saying anything about this or the news isn't covering it. I'm sure he's fine letting the AG shoulder all the attention for this.

Since the recall election failed to get him out of office, and he's managed to keep appearing clean while his ex- friends/co-workers go to jail, he's even more smug, arrogant, and over-confident than ever.
