AG Holder’s Letter to Boehner Re: DOMA. Fox Doesn’t Get it.

Amid the GOP and far right’s march to tear down our economy for the sake of the ultra-rich and turn back the clock on our civil rights on every level, its encouraging to see the President and his administration continuing to move forward. “Attorney General Eric Holder sent a letter to House Speaker Boehner on Wednesday explaining in further detail why he and President Barack Obama have made the decision to stop defending the Defense Of Marriage Act in court.” Full text.

True to form, Fox News and Monica Crowley falsely state that President Obama is “picking and choosing” which laws to enforce, which is NOT TRUE. Here’s MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell’s ‘last word’ that clarifies same.

Despite Fox News’ commentators’ inability to separate, or even recognize, fact from personal ideology, the rest of the media gets it.
