At one point, Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, who announced her entry into the race at the debate, seemed to be debating herself when she was asked if she would seek to overturn the law in states that have legalized gay marriage.
“I don’t see that it’s the role of a president to go into states and interfere with their state laws,’’ said Ms. Bachmann, a favorite of Tea Party members who believe in states’ rights.
But then, after some other candidates said that they supported a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman, she amended her answer.
“John, I do support a constitutional amendment on marriage between a man and a woman,’’ she told the moderator, John King of CNN, “but I would not be going into the states to overturn their state law.”
Wow… how do people take her seriously? Sigh, and she’s the one who wants to give people lessons on the constitution.
