Did Gov. Romney Choose Gay Marriage? Santorum Misconstrues Romney’s Record

I’m watching the debate, during which Rick Santorum really misconstrued Gov. Romney’s record on gay rights.  Here’s what David wrote about this very argument in January of 2007 here:
Did Mitt Romney choose gay marriage for Massachusetts? That’s the thrust of a bizarre and amateurish legal argument that is circulating through the internet and conservative media. A group calling itself “MassResistance” has been peddling for many months the argument that the Massachusetts Supreme Court did not actually mandate same-sex marriage in Massachusetts but instead merely requested that the legislature change the laws to permit same-sex marriage.

For the latest example of this specious argument, see the quotes from MassResistance member John Haskins in this story. Read more...........
