Former Mississippi's governor Haley Barbour weighed in on President Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage on Monday, saying that the decision was all about politics.

“This is about politics. And the gay lobbying, homosexual groups in the Democratic Party are very, very powerful,” said Barbour, a Republican, on CBS' This Morning. “It will be very interesting to see how the gay groups look at President Obama saying, well, I’m for homosexual marriage but we’ll let the states decide. I think that’s unpopular.”
