Herman Cain’s lambasting of President Barack Obama for no longer defending a federal ban on gay marriage is rhetoric unless the GOP presidential candidate commits to concrete actions, said the National Organization for Marriage.
... “President Obama claimed he supported traditional marriage but then failed to follow through. If Herman Cain wants to distinguish his position from President Obama, he should commit to concrete actions, not just rhetoric in support of marriage.”
The NOM statement came after Cain last week criticized the Obama administration’s decision not to defend in court the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which bars federal recognition of same-sex marriage and protects other states from having to recognize such unions from another state. Cain, former chairman and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, called the president’s move an impeachable offense.
