Clinton Hails Supreme Court Overturning Law He Signed
Weekly Standard ^ | June 26, 2013 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 06/26/2013 11:55:30 AM PDT by grundle

President Bill Clinton released a statement, together with his wife Hillary Clinton, hailing the Supreme Court's decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, a bill he signed into law in 1996.

"By overturning the Defense of Marriage Act, the Court recognized that discrimination towards any group holds us all back in our efforts to form a more perfect union. We are also encouraged that marriage equality may soon return to California. We applaud the hard work of the advocates who have fought so relentlessly for this day, and congratulate Edie Windsor on her historic victory," the Clintons' statement reads.

The statement makes no mention of their previous support for the law.

The Clintons are, and always will be, the scum of the earth.

Typical leftist scumbag. No core beliefs except more power to the leftist state, but a nauseatingly accurate sense of what he can put over on the public at any given moment.

“By overturning the Defense of Marriage Act, the Court recognized that discrimination towards any group holds us all back in our efforts to form a more perfect union.”

Does more perfect union, in his estimation, refer to the country or to a union “more perfect” than traditional marriage?

It’s only been 17 years since Clinton signed the legislation that he now celebrates has been voided. Given the way momentum works, that means it won’t take 17 years until all states have been forced to allow gays to marry and the persecution of orthodox religions will be unconcealed.

I wonder what it feels like to have absolutely no moral compass whatsoever and just twist which every way popular opinion is blowing? Rush Limbaugh is right, liberalism is the most gutless choice imaginable, you just go with whatever the crowd wants...

Sodomy is not a more perfect union. Unless of course you are a very sick pervert. Most of the Supreme “Justices” belong in a nut house.

Jesse Jackson described Bill Clinton as "immune to shame," someone who at the core consisted of "absolutely nothing . . . nothing but an appetite."

Former senator Bob Kerrey said of Clinton: "an unusually good liar -- unusually good."

Regarding queers, maybe Bill is broadening his horizons, so to speak.

I heard Billy used to punch his groin in righteous anger every time he let Monica touch it.
