This morning, Kiran Chetry talks with Valerie Jarrett, senior White House adviser, about the White House’s take on the latest “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” developments. Also, Jarrett weighs in on how the White House is preparing if the GOP takes control of Congress as President Obama hits the campaign trail out West.
This is why obama is causing the democratic party to lose,because he did not mean a single promise he made to the people. Instead of having more theme programing ,how about honest reporting about what is going on ,so that all people are informed.
No one should have to tell anyway: http://chicagosnob.blogspot.com/2010/10/dont-ask-if-you-dont-want-to-know.html
Bee Ess! No, the DOJ is NOT required to defend this or any other law. she is lying!
This is absolutly untrue.
The White House and it's knee jerk defenders claimed that It's Dpeartment of Justice always HAS to defend any law. Actually, that is a complete lie..
Bush refused to defend ACLU et al., v. Norman Y. Mineta,
Clinton refused to defend Dickerson v. United States.,
George HW Bush refused to defend Metro Broadcasting v. Federal Communications Commission., Ronald Reagan refused to defend INS v./ Chadha – “Chadha.,
Additionally, all joined in lawsuits opposing federal laws that they didn’t like, laws that they felt were unconstitutional. It is an outright lie to suggest that the DOJ had no choice.
‘So traditionally the President only defends heinous cases when he wants to.
Remember, this is the same woman that recently described homosexuality as being a "Choice", what the White House thinks of gay people seems extreamly apparent.
Does the White House think that cases such as School desegregation, The Miranda Case, Interacial Marraige etc... are invalid because they came from the Courts and not from Congress?
