Former Clinton solicitor general: Obama can appeal DADT and tell judge to overturn it because it’s unconstitutional

That would be bold.  And I doubt President Gates would allow it.  But at least now we know we were being misinformed for the past year and a half when the administration and its apologists repeatedly told us that the President simply had to defend DOMA and DADT in court.  No he didn’t.

So once again we ask the age old question: Why is the President continuing to defend DOMA and DADT in court?  And why is he refusing to say whether he believes either law to be constitutional?  It’s almost creepy how much the administration is avoiding answering that second question.  Which means all of us need to keep asking it, again and again and again.

Fierce Advocates don’t duck easy questions about civil rights.
