This should be a cause for concern for every American, this isn't a Left vs Right or Liberal vs Conservative... this is a dereliction of duty! You don't get to pick and choose which laws to defend. If a president fails to defend any law, then I'd say that's an impeachable offense!

Holder Right There Obama, FRC's Got a Question...
The mainstream media may not give this "coincidence" a second thought, but to FRC, this lightning-fast citation of the letter into a major judicial document is highly suspicious. Our concern is that the Department of Justice has been collaborating with the litigants in the Proposition 8 case behind the scenes, so FRC sent a letter to the DOJ asking for record of all correspondence between DOJ and opponents of Prop 8 in the last month. If there is a quiet partnership, the alliance would be both unethical and highly damaging to America 's rule of law.
Regardless of your political leanings, it should be obvious that a Department of Justice that collaborates with opponents of federal law to strike it down is clearly an example of a political system run amok. DOJ's job is to defend laws that Congress enacts--not help to undermine them. To read FRC's letter to the Department of Justice, click here.
