From Jillian Weiss's post, "What the Obama Administration's Decision on DOMA Means" comes this reply to a thread on whether or not President Obama is just covering his ass in a setup to allow the courts to decide the issue:
Jillian, I think it's merits as a step forward don't have much bearing on the key question, which in my opinion relegates it to tactical posturing to help his CREEP efforts.
We've seen several charades like this recently from the WH and we'll see more as November 2012 draws nearer.
Remember Obama crocodile tears about the GOP attack on Wisconsin workers last week. What utter BS from the president who busted the UAW and shattered their contract.
Now Obama is condemning Republicans for not having a jobs plan. He's right but where is his multi-trillion dollar, Manhattan Project plan to use union hiring halls to create 15 million jobs and green industry, agriculture and the infrastructure.
It's in the same basket under his desk with his orders to pull out of Yemen, Iraq and Afghanistan and his orders to arrest and prosecute predatory bankers like Goldman Sachs for the loss of 15 million jobs and torching the economy and the outline of his plan to put his prestige on the line fighting for ENDA.
We won't see any of those measures because the Democrats betrayed everyone in sight and lost 20 million of Obama's 2008 voters and no longer can, assuming they ever wanted to, pass legislation for our benefit.
