Watch: WH Advisor David Axelrod Defends Obama’s Contradictory Position on Equality and Same-Sex Marriage


White House Senior Advisor David Axelrod defends Obama's contradictory position that he supports equality for gays and lesbians but is against same-sex marriage.

Axelrod clarifies:

"He supports equality for gay and lesbian benefits and other issues and that has been effectuated in federal agencies under his control."

The question remains — in a nation where "all men are created equal" is it right for its leader to espouse a position of only limited equality for some of its citizens? Because that's essentially the position Axelrod is defending.

Civil unions are not marriage.
