House Speaker Boehner Is Both Incorrect AND Whiny

Boehner is continuing his ride on the waaaaaaambulance by insisting that Miz Barry O is refusing to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act and oh, girl, she wrong fo' dat.

"BOEHNER: DOMA is the law of the land. It passed overwhelming in both the House and the Senate.  And I think it’s outrageous for the president to say, Well, we’re not going to enforce it. It’s the law of the land.  It’s the job of the Justice Department to defend the work of our government. And I just think it’s outrageous. We’re looking at our options, what’s available to us to intervene. The short — the long and short of this is that we are going to intervene. The question is how do we do it.

VAN SUSTEREN: Have you had any conversations with the executive branch, with the attorney general or the president about that?


Well, John, Maybe you SHOULD have a conversation with the executive branch-- or the AG-- or Miz Barry O herself.   Then you would get these simple facts which you seem to be lacking:

1.  Obama's administration is DEFINITELY still enforcing DOMA.  It is a gross overstatement and outright lie to keep insisting he is not.  He is merely passing on defending an indefensible law in court.

2.  Nowhere does it say that the President must defend this law.  Are you kidding?  There are unenforced laws on the books in every State in the Union.  I mean, here in Oregon, it is still illegal for women to sit at a bar.  In upstate New York, there's a small town where it is illegal for an automobile to impersonate a wolf.  Since DOMA is clearly just as ridiculous as these antiquated and draconian measures, he is doing the same thing that police officers do all over the country, every day-- ignoring an embarrassing law that should really go away anyway.
