Look, politics aside, ideology aside, this Mitt person is way more pathetic than he is presidential.
Yesterday, he told Neil Cavuto of Fox News that he “if two people of the same gender want…to adopt a child…in my view, that’s something that people have a right to do.”
When I heard it yesterday, I was shocked, but I also knew it wouldn’t stand because it’s not where the GOP base is, and he won’t dare stand up to them.
And sure enough, today he backed off, saying that he doesn’t personally support gay adoption, he “simply acknowledge[s] the fact that gay adoption is legal in all states but one.” But that wasn’t what he said yesterday. Yesterday, he said “in my view.”
The president has to be able to think clearly and coherently. Agree with him or not, he has to make sense, he can’t make it up as he goes along. He can’t constantly change positions every 24 hours. Mitt is incapable of doing that.
