    The President is free to voice his opinion as long as he continues to enforce the law. As far as defending the law in court, it's not a matter that he won't but that he can't. I welcome you to come to my thread and explain what argument he should be making...

    If you can't defend the Constitutionality of DOMA, then there is no way in hell that you should expect Obama to do so.

    You do realize that you would need to pass a federal constitutoinal amendment at this point, right? Support for same sex marrriage is about 50/50 right now. Half of "We the People" actually support same sex marriage.

    Obama is campaigning already by this decision so he can get the homosexual votes in 2012 that's plain to see. Another political flip flop for his convenience.
    What else can we expect from this guy??

    So you believe that DOMA is defensible?

    I invite you to my thread to share exactly how you would defend DOMA.

    pardon me if I don't shed a tear because a handful of terrorist scumbags were made to feel a litle uncomfortable.

    Hardly the truth...as of right now there are a super majority of the STATES that have amendments already in their constitutions that Defend Marriage. There has only been ONE STATE that has passed legislation that grants Queer Eye for the straight Guy Marriage, a very small state....that was lobbied from all over the nation (gays) with brides and money going to that states representatives (documented), why did the gays pick this state to purchase? Because it is one of only a few states that does not grant THE FREE PEOPLE thereof the right to have a reformation vote on any passed law. No other state in the union save this one has seen legislation passed making gay marriage legal. NOT ONE. Of course that state is Connecticut, Even the most liberal state in the Union (California) amended their constitution in defense of marriage. You are either gullible...or lying.

    And this TRUTH that was just presented to you is the very REASON for BARRY OBAMA now dropping defense of traditional marriage. YOU progressives are attempting to set the State of Connecticut up to make legislation for the other 49 states...not by Ballots but by Bribery...once again. It could not be done before because NOT ONE state had passed such legislation.....all Queer Eye for the Straight Guy Laws come down from the Bench.

    Obama chose not to pursue it out of respect for the office. It was independently determined that Bush did violate the Constitution and did torture those prisoners.
