Tap Dancing

The conservative tabloid, the Boston Herald, criticized Governor Mitt Romney (a very infrequent occurrence) after his recent not-really-running-for-POTUS-yet swing. It hit him on making disparate statements on abortion rights and same-sex marriage.

On the latter, the Herald contrasted:
In Massachusetts, the governor said for months he opposed Vermont-style civil unions, but then cobbled together the Republicans needed to pass a constitutional amendment in the Legislature that bans gay marriage and creates civil unions. Romney says he did so only because it was either that or allowing gay marriage completely
On the "Road to the White House," Romney doesn't mention the tacit support for civil unions -- saying only that he has been opposed to civil unions "from day one."
