1. I continue to be against government sanctioned gay marriage--just as I am against government sanctioned straight marriage. Marriage should be a religious and social covenant, not an artifice for streamlining property rights or granting favored tax status.
2. This Washington Post editorial gets it right--the President's decision NOT to enforce/advocate a duly considered and affirmed piece of legislation sets a dangerous precedent for the future.
3. I am reminded of the furor from the left when George Bush would--in his famous "signing" statements--suggest that certain parts of legislation he was signing appeared unconstitutional, and that he would not execute them. This was of course, decried on the left as dictatorial power wielded by a megalomaniac. There appear to be no such charges from the left arising from Mr. Obama's similar declaration.
