Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney responded on Wednesday to President Barack Obama’s endorsement of same sex marriage, saying it was a “tender and sensitive topic.”
The Republican presidential candidate suggested that Obama had flip-flopped on the issue, but stop short of saying so outright.
“I have the same view on marriage that I had when I was governor, and that I’ve expressed many times,” he said at a campaign stop in Oklahoma. “I believe that marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman.”
“The states are able to make decisions with regards to domestic partnerships benefits, such as hospital visitation rights, benefits and so forth of various kinds can be determined state by state,” Romney added.
“I know other people have differing views. This is a very tender and sensitive topic, as are many social issues. But I have the same view that I have had since running for office.”
