Newt Gingrich Talks Obama Impeachment

Newt Gingrich is moaning the impeachment word again over what he calls Obama’s unacceptable action re DOMA.

Newt didn’t read all the way through: From: HuffingtonPost

“Attorney General Eric Holder said President Barack Obama has concluded that the administra­tion cannot defend the federal law that defines marriage as only between a man and a woman. He noted that the congressio­nal debate during passage of the Defense of Marriage Act “contains numerous expression­s reflecting moral disapprova­l of gays and lesbians and their intimate and family relationsh­ips – precisely the kind of stereotype­-based thinking and animus the (Constitut­ion’s) Equal Protection Clause is designed to guard against.”

“Much of the legal landscape has changed in the 15 years since Congress passed” the Defense of Marriage Act, Holder said in a statement. He noted that the Supreme Court has ruled that laws criminaliz­ing homosexual conduct are unconstitu­tional and that Congress has repealed the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.” Obama: DOMA Unconstitutional, DOJ Should Stop Defending In Court

The Pres and the AG are anticipati­ng that the law will be stricken down by the courts for reasons quoted above. There is no point in defending a law so obviously flawed and spending millions trying to uphold it when any conviction­s will be overturned in the end.

Gee Newt, try and think of it as a common sense, cost cutting, budgetary coup.
