A DISCUSSION OF LAW AND JOURNALISM

That Ain’t Hypocrisy, That’s the Law

Chief Justice Roberts

By LASIS Staff

Yesterday, Chief Justice Roberts said the following  about President Obama’s continuing to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act — even after he’d repudiated it:

“If he has made a determination that executing the law by enforcing its terms is unconstitutional, I don’t see why he doesn’t have the courage of his convictions” and refuse to enforce it.

Newt Gingrich leveled the same accusation (in a more volatile, Gingrichian style) back in March, 2011, and LASIS explained why Mr. Gingrich was wrong.

So read this, Mr. Chief Justice, and you will see why you’re mistaken, too.
