Was Comrade Obama really a constitutional law professor? Perhaps that was simply spin. The truth is probably something more like “Mr. Obama wiped his butt with a copy of the constitution AND he stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.”
According to Courthouse News Service:
On Wednesday, Attorney General Eric Holder wrote a letter to Congress stating that President Barack Obama has found that the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, violates the right to equal protection afforded under the Fifth Amendment. Passed in 1996, DOMA prohibits the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages.
The president cannot determine a law is unconstitutional. If anybody is to do that, it is the judiciary under the practice known as judicial review. As the Chief Executive, Barack Obama’s job is to execute–that is, carry out–the laws the Congress passes. Whether he likes them or not, he must abide by them and enforce them! There is no such thing as a retroactive veto.
Now, none of this matters when you have a dictator for president. Kim Jong Il, Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, and now Barack Obama–they are all democratically elected presidents who have the power to act as the head of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches. Now it’s just a matter of time before he begins the purges.
