Gov. Christie: I'm With Obama On Gay Marriage

MSNBC.COM - Following his veto of a bill allowing gay marriage in his state, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie accused Democrats of playing politics with the issue and said his stance is no different than President Obama's.

"I have the exact same position as the president… The Democrats in my state are criticizing me, saying my feet are firmly planted on the wrong side of justice. I said yesterday, ‘Yeah, my feet are firmly planted right next to President Obama.' And they don't criticize him," Christie on MSNBC's "Morning Joe".

Christie defended his view that voters should be the ones who decide what defines marriage in his state.

"Even though it's against my belief on this, I'm willing to be governed on it [by the voters]," Christie said. Last Friday, Christie vetoed a bill that would have allowed gay marriage in the state. The Republican governor accompanied his veto with a call for lawmakers to appoint an advocate for same-sex couples under the state's existing civil union law. click here to read the full article
