    I think his answer was more about channeling what he expects Romney Supreme Court nominees to believe, rather than making a play for a constitutional amendment.  Don't get me wrong; I'm sure he'd support a constitutional amendment, but even they realize that they'd need to sweep every red state and every battleground state and then get a handful of deep blue states to get the 38 states needed to ratify an amendment.

    I'm sure most Republicans (Ryan included) are banking on getting the opportunity to pick SC justices that will overturn Roe v Wade, which will then return the decision to state legislatures.

      so they want the independent women voters to see them as ideological but willing to enforce the law of the land, all reasonable like...BUT..they also know, and their tea bagger backers know that they will appoint SC judges who will cancel current abortion laws bit by bit. Per Plan.

      That's how it makes sense to me, to try and make their position seem all religious based yet still somehow centrist reasonable and reassuring as best they can. Their ace up their sleeve is the Sc appointees on this..and counting on keeping at least the house.

      This machine kills Fascists.
