Re: Mr. Obama and Mr. Holder’s “decision” that the “defense of marriage” act is not constitutional and that they will no longer defend it… Correct me if I am wrong, gentle readers, but under the Constitution, and early decisions by Justice Marshall’s Court, doesn’t the Supreme Court decide if a law is constitutional? I cannot recall a president making that decision by himself. I am all for gay men and women to have every right that I have. But isn’t it a dangerous usurpation for the president to now take over the roles of the courts in their ultimate duty — ruling on the constitutionality of laws? Isn’t this about as dangerous an act as a president has ever done? Or am I missing something? Again, I love gay people and want them to be total equals of everyone else. But isn’t there a major constitutional coup going on here?

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
