Griswold v. Connecticut is a rather important case in the ongoing culture wars. No one, not even Romney, disputes the result. Many strict-constructionists on the right philosophically dispute the Right of Privacy when applied to other things, which is, in actual fact, not directly written in the Constitution. Law-trained Romney had to be schooled on this by Dr. Paul, strict constructionist he may be, nevertheless is able to recognize a Right of Privacy when he sees one in the penumbras.
Romney is also smart enough, but only by half, to stay out of troubled waters in that Roe v. Wade, is a direct offspring of Griswold v. Connecticut. Even I knew that before I went to Law School. But of course, Romney jumped right on that saying that Roe v. Wade should be overturned directly contrary to the old Romney I used to like when he was running against Ted Kennedy and even serving as Governor of Massachusetts.
Then we saw more of the candidates stumble all over themselves to promote "states' rights" at the same time they insist the federal government could and should ban all same-sex marriages. And here I am trying to stay out of the culture wars. Too bad the Republicans aren't.
