Nonsense making primetime...

Liz Mair discusses the claims of flip-flopping that have now made Chris Matthews' show.

The short version: They are bogus claims. Romney's position on gay rights has not changed. What did change was the prominence of gay marriage as an issue - and it was something Romney had opposed for a long time.

The only issue on which the charge of "flip-flopping" might have any validity is abortion. Yet two of the past three Republican presidents would also be guilty and judged unworthy of being the Republican nominee by the standard used against Romney by these self-appointed commissars.

Keep that in mind when you see these claims, folks.
