Gary Johnson: Obama ‘Opposes’ same-sex marriage because of Black votersSubmitted by bobbyw24 on Tue, 01/10/2012 - 08:32
Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, currently running as a Libertarian Party candidate for president, lashed out at President Barack Obama in a Monday press release regarding same-sex marriage.
Referencing a New York Times report, Johnson said that Obama “gives lip service to gay equality,” but “will not support gay marriage before the election because of the opposition of African Americans, as reflected in his polling, and the need to assure maximum support from African American voters in November.”
Meanwhile, Johnson declared, Obama “sends out surrogates to imply that he will support gay marriage in a second term.”
Johnson will likely be the only presidential candidate on the ballot in all 50 states advocating for the legalization of same-sex marriage, which he refers to as a constitutional right.
