Someone needs to tell the Republicans that their messaging is a little all over the place. Karl Rove must be gnashing his teeth in his lair at Fox News. Even after RNC Chairman Michael Steele said "No, No, No" to gay rights and Rush Limbaugh (the "voice of the Party") blasted progressive rights and politics at the CPAC, House minority whip Eric Cantor is singing a (slightly) different tune.
On This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Cantor gave a vague "we need to be more inclusive" answer to a question on gay rights:
STEPHANOPOULOS: But Governor Huntsman says that you're not going to be reaching out to broaden the base of the party, reaching out to young people who've left the Republican Party in droves, unless you do have that positive agenda on the environment, unless you move to the middle on issues like gay rights. Are you prepared to do that in the House?
CANTOR: There is no question the Republican Party has to return to be one of inclusion, not exclusion. And we are a party with many ideas. And we have in that a commitment to make sure that we have positive alternatives, if we don't agree with this administration or the House Democrats, and to continue to put those ideas forward.
Somehow I don't feel convinced at Cantor's non-answer... Video after the jump.
