"Santorum: President Obama And I Have The Same Position On Marriage Equality"

Rick Santorum said he has the same position on same-sex marriage as President Obama during a town hall in New Hampshire this morning, arguing that the only difference between him and the other candidates vying for the presidency is that he is willing to speak openly about the matter. “Everyone on the stage yesterday and the day before has pretty much has the same exact position I have on those social issues. President Obama says he has the same position I have on gay marriage,” he explained. “The only difference is between myself and any of them is that when somebody asks me a question I answer it.” Watch it:

Glenn Beck made the exact same point last week when defending Santorum’s comparison of same-sex marriage with polygamy.
