Latest Barack Obama Items
In the long run, conservatives are going to look back on the day Barack Obama threw the Defense of Marriage Act under the bus with a special fondness. With a flick of his presidential wrist, he has just freed future GOP presidents from having to defend the unconstitutional laws that liberal Congresses have been spewing out for the last century.
American combat troops will get sensitivity training directly on the battlefield about the military's new policy on gays instead of waiting until they return to home base in the United States, the senior enlisted man in Afghanistan said Thursday.
The Obama administration isn't doing enough to protect voting rights of soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines serving America overseas.

The White House reverberated like a long-ago basement sound studio in Detroit on Thursday as the likes of John Legend, Seal, Jamie Foxx, Nick Jonas and Sheryl Crow channeled their inner Motown before Michelle and Barack Obama. Musical pioneers Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder joined in for the celebration of all things Motown.
How that ultimately plays out would appear to depend, as another Democratic president once said in a different context, on what the meaning of the words "really good" is. What we know beyond dispute, however, after Mr. Obama's decision Wednesday to disregard unilaterally his executive duty to defend the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) against legal challenges, is that he is the most radical leftist president this country has ever had.
