Obama, Santorum same on marriage, say people who've been living in caves. Oh, and NOM

by Jeremy Hooper

I've certainly seen the National Organization For Marriage push some clumsy lines in the past. But this obtuse attempt to mine hypocrisy out of obviousness is certainly one of the clumsiest in recent memory:

I'm not even going to dignify this one. If you don't already understand the world of sunlight between the anti-LGBT-everything view of Rick "I'll invalidate people's marriages" Santorum and the current, largely LGBT-supportive President, then little I say here will make a difference.

But if NOM and its President want to push this clumsy meme, then I'll put it right back to them. If there's no difference between Barack Obama and Rick Santorum on marriage, then why does NOM waste countless resources knocking the President for his stance (particularly on DOMA) yet love Rick enough that NOM's co-founder is currently touring Michigan in support of his candidacy? If they, the nation's self-appointed leaders of the anti-marriage-equality opposition, truly see no difference other than reaction, then aren't they, the ones fueling negative reaction towards President Obama, complicit in this supposedly off-base response?
