Romney stays on course in his opposition to Gay Marriage unfazed by President Obama’s recent reversal of his opinion and new-founded support of gay marriage.
Romney, the likely Republican nominee in the upcoming Presidential election, has not attacked the President for his recent reversal of opinion. He has said in the past that individual states should be able to decide whether or not to grant certain legal benefits to same sex unions.
Romney’s backers, while not outright attacking the President on his revised stance, are using the fact that Mitt Romney stays on course in his opposition to Gay Marriage as an indication that he will not play politics on sensitive issues.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said,
“While President Obama has played politics on this issue, the Republican Party and our presumptive nominee Mitt Romney have been clear. We support maintaining marriage between one man and one woman and would oppose any attempts to change that.”
Will Romney backtrack on his statements?
While Republicans have been vocal in their criticism of President Obama’s support of gay marriage, Democrats on the other hand are absolutely ecstatic. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said, “Today marks progress for the civil rights of LGBT Americans and all Americans. With President Obama’s support, we look forward to the day when all American families are treated equally in the eyes of the law.”
