Flash News! Obama Justice Dept. to STOP defending traditional marriage in federal courts!

This just came across FoxNews, and I suspect that the RS front page will pick it up soon after this post.

From a FOX NEWS breaking report:

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration says it will no longer defend the constitutionality of a federal law that bans recognition of same-sex marriage. 

In a statement Wednesday, Attorney General Eric Holder says President Obama has concluded that the administration can no longer defend the federal law that defines marriage as only between a man and a woman. 

The Justice Department had defended the Defense of Marriage Act in court until now.

To all of our Mitch Daniels friends out there, how’s that “mute button” on social issues going to work for ya now?  While we “hit the mute button”, the other side is firing on all fronts.

Nice to know that the leftists in this country can fight on multiple fronts.  Can we?
