Obama Scrambling for Support: Wants Repeal of DOMA

Looks like the President figured out that he's losing support on Cap-n-Tax and ObamaCare.

So he's looking for rear-guard support, so to speak.

Maybe it's good tactics, but I don't think that it's good strategery.

Obama issued a statement Monday affirming that he would continue to seek repeal of the [DOMA] law, which has been upheld by federal judges in Florida and Washington state. The president said that he would "examine and implement measures that will help extend rights and benefits to (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) couples under existing law."

By choosing to double down (or triple-down) on his extreme-liberal agenda, Obama is going to put a lot of Congressional Democrats at risk of their seats, just as he has done with ObamaCare and Cap-n-Tax. This may play well in Manhattan, SanFran, and Madistan, but it's rotting carrion everywhere else.

Go ahead. Lose another 3 million voters every time there's a protest, Obama.
