GOP guvs going soft: WI Gov. Scott Walker (R) goes mealy-mouthed on marriage

by Jeremy Hooper

Zack Ford reports over at ThinkProgress:

Wisconsin may be one of the next states to have its ban on same-sex marriage overturned, but Gov. Scott Walker (R), who faces a tight race for reelection this year, isn’t sure he’d agree with such a ruling. In an interview on Friday, Walker said he didn’t know if the ban violates the U.S. Constitution, despite having been one of its chief advocates.

“Any federal judge has got to look at that law not only with respect to the state’s constitution but what it means in terms of the U.S. Constitution, as well,” he explained. “Again, I’m not going to pretend to tell a federal judge in that regard what he or she should do about it.”

Walker will just leave the whole telling judges what to do thing to the rest of the conservative movement, where the organizations and commentariat have pretty much defined their takes regarding court actions and rulings through insistence that they know better.

But hey, I'll certainly take this Wisconsinite's cheese-stands-alone status. This shift, a mini trend that will soon become status quo among GOP governors, is going to be so fun to watch!!
