Again, is Romney comparing apples to oranges here? Comparing Federal legislation to an amendment is not fair.
There is nothing else for Priebus to refer to when he says “you can’t federalize that kind of mandate” and “individual states can make that decision on their own” other than Romney now making a no-go on a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.
If Romney completely leaves this up to the states as Priebus says, then you defederalize the issue. Add that to Priebus saying that Romney also doesn’t want to federalize this kind of mandate, the it is clear that no federal intervention and leaving this up to the states and you have Romney exposed for trying to piviot away from his past support for a ban on same-sex marriage.
I can’t believe that you still trust Romney on any issue. He is a flip-flopper par excellence.
