Buzzfeed Rounds Up Republican Reactions
Buzzfeed rounded up this collection of conservative reactions to the news.
Some notable quotes include...
"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."
National Organization for Marriage
"On the one hand, morally this is good because lying to the American people is always wrong. President Obama has come clean that he is for gay marriage.
"Politically, we welcome this. We think it’s a huge mistake. President Obama is choosing the money over the voters the day after 61 percent of North Carolinians in a key swing state demonstrated they oppose gay marriage.
"We now have clear choice between Romney and Obama, and we look forward to demonstrating in November that it’s a bad idea for a national candidate to support gay marriage. Marriage is a winning issue for the GOP."
