“I think that’s something you get to much later. But I think clearly it is a dereliction of duty. Clearly it’s a violation of his constitutional oath. Clearly it is not something that can be allowed to stand."

Maybe not, but does he have a point (But I think clearly it is a dereliction of duty. Clearly it’s a violation of his constitutional oath.)

Gingrich is the flip side of the same bad penny.
Meanwhile, I remain optimistic Obama will be impeached in 2012.

My understanding is that they have to enforce the law, but I didn't know the government had to defend the constitutionality question--isn't he just leaving it open for a challenge to go through to the Supreme Court now without interference? If that's the case, how is that a dereliction of duty?

Gingrich is a fine one to talk about "Defense of Marriage", considering his own marital problems. And what's this crap about Sarah Palin? She was not running for pres, and it doesn't look like she will. We should all deal with reality, not some alternative universe where she is president (G*d forbid!).

I think he makes a good point when he suggests what most likely would happen in a similar situation with a different president & different issue.

“Imagine that Governor Palin had become president. Imagine that she had announced that Roe versus Wade in her view was unconstitutional and therefore the United States government would no longer protect anyone’s right to have an abortion because she personally had decided it should be changed. The news media would have gone crazy. The New York Times would have demanded her impeachment."

After Clinton, I don't think anything about anybodies marriage should be used to deflect from the point of the thread.

Does he have a point?
