Eye in the Door has more

Robert Skipper has more on Dick Cheney's inconsistent stance on gay marriage at The Eye in the Door, including an excerpt from a March 2004 interview by Wolf Blitzer.

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Well, I restated my position previously. The President has made a decision, partly because of what's happening in Massachusetts and San Francisco, that the administration will support a constitutional amendment. And that's his decision to make.

BLITZER: And do you support it?

THE VICE PRESIDENT: I support the President.

BLITZER: I don't hear you say you believe there --

THE VICE PRESIDENT: I support the President.

BLITZER -- should be a constitutional --

THE VICE PRESIDENT: Wolf, my deal with the President is that I get to advise him on the issues of the day. I never discuss the advice I provide him with anybody else. That's always private. He makes the decisions, he sets policy for the administration. And I support him and the administration.”[White House transcript]


[Skipper writes:] Cheney’s flip-flop from October 2000 to March 2004 to August 2004 is a bit mealy-mouthed. But it’s still the same kind of flip-flip Bush-Cheney ’04 constantly accuses Kerry of.
