That Ain’t Hypocrisy, That’s the Law
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.
