New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie slammed the Supreme Court decision on DOMA as “wrong” and an example of “judicial supremacy.”

He blasted the U.S. Supremes for substituting “their own judgment for the judgment of a Republican Congress and a Democratic President. In the Republican Congress in the ’90s and Bill Clinton.

we were told at the time by the democrats that no constitutional amendment was needed because of the DOMA.

well... now that the DOMA has been ruled unconstitutional... will those same democrats NOW support an amendment?

....

I was wondering when Jumbo was going to find some issue to make it look like he’s a conservative again. He’s got a White House bid to think about.

Geez, this guy is all over the place.”

He either needs to get back on his meds or he is having withdrawal from not having his daily supply of donuts.

This is all just unbelievable - McCain, Graham, Ryan, Corker, Rubio, Christie - to name just a few. The list just keeps growing. They have all gone stark raving mad.

“Marco Rubio and Fatso trying to rehab their creds on the same day!”

The common denominaator between these two and the reason for their protestations are they are both Catholic. SCOTUS Kennedy is a CINO.

He’s just trying to gain back a little credibility with the right now that the sepremes have already ruled. And I’m sure rove is behind it so that christie can get the nod to run in the next go-round.
