Gary Johnson: Obama "Opposes" Same-Sex Marriage Because of Black Voters

 

Long-shot presidential candidate Gary Johnson (who recently came out for SSM himself) is now issuing press releases explaining why he thinks President Obama does not support SSM:

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.” -- The Daily Caller
