Reichskanzler Ogabe isn’t even trying to hide it anymore.
If, indeed, he ever was trying to hide it but, you know, to point out the obvious is RAAAAACIST!
The Obama administration said Wednesday that it will no longer defend the constitutionality of a federal law banning the recognition of same-sex marriage, specifically a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act that defines marriage as being between a man and a woman.
Attorney General Eric Holder made the announcement in a letter to House Speaker John Boehner. He said that President Barack Obama has concluded that the administration cannot defend the federal law that defines marriage as only between a man and a woman.
No, we don’t want to debate the constitutionality of DOMA, that’s not the point.
What IS the point is that DOMA is the Law of the Land and that Reichskanzler Ogabe and his Obervolksgericht have decided, by dictatorial fiat, that the Department of Justice needs no longer defend said Law of the Land, which used to be their job, as long as Unser Führer, Ogabe, disagrees with it.
Which is nothing new, really, considering that the Department of “Justice” has already decided, in another case, that voter intimidation laws need not be enforced as long as the thugs have the “right” color.
Which, to point that out is, of course, RAAAAACIST!
Na dann, meine Herren, gute Nacht.
Here’s a “money quote” from that MSNBC article: Obama’s press secretary said Wednesday the order is consistent with the president’s stance all along that DOMA is “unnecessary and unfair.” But the president says he still not sure if he supports gay marriage. Let me get this straight. Obongo isn’t supporting (or isn’t “sure” about supporting) gay marriage yet he says… Read more »
As some mediac pointed out, a new GOP Prez could in the same manner, say, refuse to implement Obamacare.
Here’s another one he’s decided unilaterally not to enforce: immigration law. And he won’t let the states enforce it, either. Can’t hassle all those prospective dumbocrat voters, now can we? As someone who lives outside the U.S., I take scrupulous care to ensure that my passport, visa, residency, and work permits are current. It’s all about respecting the law in… Read more »
Hey – Let’s make lemonade, here, folks! So, Buckwheat and company declare that (in violation of their oaths of office) they will not enforce the passed laws of the land. OK – Now, Congress can either say “Do yo’ job, ALL of it” and enforce it, the Supremes can tell him “Do yo’ job, Holder” or they BOTH can allow… Read more »
Since when does the pResident get to interpret, not enforce laws?? Is this an impeachable offense??
Response to Gladiator @:
Yes it is…unfortunately the same criminals shitting on the carpets in the White House are the same ones pissing on the Constitution in the Senate. It coming down to a very bad ending.
i think he does not want to defend real marri age because bongo likes to smoke a pickel every now and than.
Response to Grammar Czar @:
Damn hunt and peck typing skills. Good job Grammar Czar.

L’Etat c’est L’Etat is more the way of it. Once the Rule of Law is broken, then it is Rule of Man, which is Tyranny. I hold little confidence it will change under a Republican President. The siren song of Power is too great. Our out is that once the Rule of Law is broken, so is the “social contract”,… Read more »
There are a few caveats about Obama’s decision. They’re only taking this stance over section 3 of DOMA, which defines “marriage” as between a man and a woman. They’re not disputing section 2 which says states don’t have to recognize same-sex marriages from another state. And of course their decision not to defend the act still doesn’t mean it’s unconstitutional,… Read more »
Lets see now. Imagine a President Palin – or better yet – a President Beck (to really make the leftie heads explode) saying ‘I am not enforcing the First Amendment because I disagree with it’. Or the Fifth Amendment. Im reasonably sure the Left would be very civil and meekly accepting it. Cripes .. the blast would be bigger than… Read more »
What the Loyal Citizen said.
I’ve also thought that in the unlikely event that I (or someone similar) became president, I could start promulgating executive ukases right & left to encourage Congress to limit presidential authority–then, assuming they pass a good measure, sign it.
I saw this exchange over at Ace and have to spread it. Honestly. What the hell do any of you care about gays getting married? None of you know any gays. Gays don’t belong to your bridge club, you’re never going to invite one over for a barbecue. A gay couple on the other side of town could get married,… Read more »
Obama and Holder also aren’t enforcing the laws against people possessing small amounts of marijuana for medical purposes, in states that have permitted such. Hence the proliferation of medical marijuana dispensaries here in the Denver metro area, ranging from the ones that look like they’re genuinely trying to serve sick people to the ones that don’t seem to care as… Read more »
