Yesterday the President of the United States publicly declared that neither he nor Attorney General Holder believe the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was a constitutional law. My jaw dropped open as I considered the implications of such a blatant, “unconstitutional”, power stealing, comment was made by the leader of the “free” world. The possibility that a conservative President or Attorney General were to publicly state that they would no longer work to defend a federal law and the ACLU along with every law abiding citizen would come down on them with a hammer! The possibility that a conservative President and their Attorney General colluded to personally decide that abortion (or kidnapping, murder, racketeering, voter intimidation) was unconstitutional, without the biggest backlash and demands for impeachment, is unthinkable!
So imagine my pleasure to find that Newt Gingrich has so eloquently put into words, how best to address this impeachable affront that President Barack Obama and Attorney General Holder have committed.

In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV Friday, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said President Barack Obama’s decision not to fully enforce the Defense of Marriage law eventually could lead to a constitutional crisis, as he has directly violated his constitutional duties by arbitrarily suspending a law.
Gingrich even suggested that, if a “President Sarah Palin” had taken a similar action, there would have been immediate calls for her impeachment. Asked directly whether President Obama could be subject to articles of impeachment, Gingrich said, “I think that’s something you get to much later. But I think clearly it is a dereliction of duty. Clearly it’s a violation of his constitutional oath. Clearly it is not something that can be allowed to stand."
