Framing the Dialogue

Update – Unelected Group of People

It’s funny (scary not humorous) how when you dig into a topic you find much more than expected.  It is also not unusual to hear more about similar topics once you become aware.  Like noticing more of our cars on the road once you buy one.  Soon after my previous post I was listening to syndicated talk show host Jim Quinn discussing Obama’s less-than-veiled threat to SCOTUS.  Quinn was discussing the hypocrisy of Obama’s attacks on SCOTUS as unelected while his Justice Department was looking to a court to declare the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional.  Eric Holder was quoted as saying,

“The president and I have concluded that classifications based on sexual orientation” should be subjected to a strict legal test intended to block unfair discrimination…a crucial provision of the Defense of Marriage Act “is unconstitutional.”

While Obama was elected, Holder certainly was not.  Neither of them, to my knowledge, is a sitting judge.  I may be speaking out of turn, but their role is NOT to determine the Constitutionality of laws.  That is the role of the unelected group of people in the courts.
