Romney flip-flops today on gay adoption, now against

Romney seems to have decided that the only way can win the general election against President Obama is to swing even further to the far-right than he did during the primaries (I know the primaries aren’t over, but they really are).  This is actually quite surprising.  He’s going to turn off independents if he keeps pandering to the far right.

From CBS News:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Friday backed away from his support of adoptions by same-sex couples, saying that he simply “acknowledges” the legality of such adoptions in many states.

A day earlier, Romney, in an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, had indicated that while he does not support same-sex marriage, he considers the adoption of children by same-sex couples a “right.”
