Bush flip-flops on marriage amendment

Bush to the Washington Post:

Senators have made it clear that so long as DOMA is deemed constitutional, nothing will happen. I'd take their admonition seriously... Until that changes, nothing will happen in the Senate.

White House counsel Dan Bartlett to the Washington Post:

[The above statement] does not change President Bush's view about amendment, the need for an amendment. And he'll continue to push for an amendment.

How about this, Mr. Bush: Equal rights, status, and protection for all citizens. Is that so difficult?
