Governor Perdue: Amendment One “hurts our brand” (video)

On MSNBC’s “Daily Rundown”  Governor Bev Perdue called today’s vote on Amendment One “our Rosa Parks moment.”

She told the national audience the proposed constitutional amendment hurts North Carolina’s brand as a progressive leader, and does nothing to help fix the economy.

And while the governor struggled a bit to articulate her own personal stance on marriage equality, she  said voters should understand that the ballot initiative takes away a lot of civil liberties for both gay and straight couples alike.

“It’s not about gay marriage,” Perdue said. “That is not what this issue is about. We have a statute on the books. So for the voters in North Carolina, don’t be confused. Go in there and vote NO.”

    Wow, she really didn’t say anything about her stand on gay marriage, just that NC should vote no. I reckon she’s still evolving like Obama is. Pathetic politicians, afraid to take a stand.
