Hillary’s statement on gay marriage was, paraphrasing: “It’s not true that I was opposed to it, and those times I said I was opposed to it in the past I wasn’t lying, and my stated position on the issue never had anything to do with politics and what difference does it make?”
Scott Walker made a more direct statement when asked his position
“It really doesn’t matter what I think now,” Walker said at one point. “It’s in the constitution.”
And it’s out of his hands, he suggested.
Is the governor — like some other conservatives — rethinking his position on same-sex marriage?
“No,” Walker said. “I’m just not stating one at all.”
Of the two answers, Scott’s is more credible and sensible. Like many, he has concluded that, for better or for worse, the gay marriage train has left the station. The country has made a choice to embrace same-sex marriage. All we can do now is wait and see what the consequences are.
Just as we will have to wait and see what the consequences of the country’s choice to embrace perpetually expanding national debt and massive expansion of the bureaucratic welfare state.
Just as we will have to wait and see what will be the consequences of the country’s choice to export our manufacturing sector to China.
Just as we will have to wait and see what will be the consequences of the country’s choice to embrace environmental extremism and reject economic growth.
Just as we will have to wait and see what will be the consequences of de facto open borders.
Choices have consequences. We’ll just have to see how the choices our country has been making lately work out.
