Regarding DOMA Order, John Boehner Doesn't Think It's The 'Appropriate Time' To Stop Discriminating Against Gays


House Speaker John Boehner's spokesman has responded to the Attorney General's announcement that Obama has asked it to stop defending DOMA in court:

"While Americans want Washington to focus on creating jobs and cutting spending, the President will have to explain why he thinks now is the appropriate time to stir up a controversial issue that sharply divides the nation."

  1. LincolnLounger, GOProuders, assorted anti-Obamaists -- speak up! Now is your chance! Here is your forum. We're listening. We had to slog kneedeep through your bullshit for MONTHS. Well, the chickens are coming home to roost. Why not join them and bless us with a remark?

  2. Mr Bo(eh)ner, then why are you pushing anti-abortion laws and attacking Planned Parenthood along with the NEA and other things that do not CREATE jobs but eliminate them?

  3. As someone form Australia who now follows American politics nice to see comments against Boehner and his ilk regarding jobs versus abortion etc.

    Looks to me like the dominoes are falling - keep up the fight guys the republicans with the help of the tea party are starting to implode.

  7. "
    Ok, one more time. WHY are some Gays members of GOProud and LCR?"

    Because some gays are greedy, entitled hateful people who are of the "I got mine so screw the rest of y'all" mindset just like their straight counterparts. If they were straight, they'd be no different. . .but in this case they like to have their dick and eat it too. . .
    Its something I'm not even going to pretend to understand. But wait a minute! Dan Choi is always right! Screw Obama! He's the worst president for gay rights EVER.
    Psst. He's also a commie pinko negro socialist plant who was born in Kenya.
    No doubt a lot of the Obama angst here is from genuine disappointment. But some of it is something else. . .and we all know it's true.

  10. Is there ever an appropriate time to discriminate? I think not! Rep. Boehner needs to review the idea of "liberty and justice for all"!!

  11. "According to the report, during its 140th period of sessions from October 20 to November 5, 2010, the commission held 52 hearings and 28 working meetings and concluded that ""structural human rights problems still persist in the region"". These include the situation involving people of African descent, women, persons deprived of liberty, and the ""gay"" community.
    The commission expressed its concern about information it received concerning persistent practices in the Dominican Republic whereby persons of Haitian descent ""who were born in that country"" are denied their right to nationality. The commission believes that the Dominican Republic's argument that ""there are no stateless persons in that country, since children born to Haitians in the Dominican Republic can be registered at the Haitian consulate"", is incompatible with the Inter-American Convention and case law of the Inter-American Commission and Court.
