Obama (former part-time constitutional law prof and community organizer) rules on constitutionality of Defense of Marriage Act.

SadHill News reports on the latest abuse of presidential powers: Obama administration drops defense of anti-gay marriage-law:

(Reuters) President Barack Obama has determined that a federal law that barred gay marriages was unconstitutional and told government lawyers to stop defending it in court, the U.S. Justice Department said on Wednesday, a move that will likely anger some conservative voters.

A U.S. judge had ruled that a key provision of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) banning gay marriages was unconstitutional, but the administration had appealed, stating that it was obligated to defend federal laws when challenged.

Apparently our Community Organizer in Chief and part time Constitutional Law professor has deemed it necessary to usurp the powers of the Supreme Court, thereby saving us thousands of dollars. All part of his deficit reduction plan. (See Buh-Bye sidebar, to see how we’re doing so far.)
