Why Romney Might Not Want to Define Marriage

Andrew Sullivan takes exception with Mitt Romney's statement -- highlighted in a new Obama video -- that we should not discard 3,000 years of history of marriage.

"Ahem. His own family were ardent polygamists only a century ago -- and went to Mexican colonies to escape US federal oppression of their version of marriage (which also goes back a long, long way and still exists across the world). Romney's great-grandparents were polygamists; one of his his great-great-grandfathers had twelve wives and was murdered by the husband of the twelfth. For Romney to say that the definition of marriage has remained the same for 3,000 years is disproved by his own family. It's untrue. False. A lie."
