Does Barack Obama Simploy Not Know What His Administration Is Saying About DOMA?

Oh Rachel, we were just waiting for you (and your sound engineers) to go after President Obama for his Justice Department DOMA filing. Guest Howard Dean jumps in on the criticism, who calls the brief “offensive” and “terrible mistake” and says Obama “didn’t [know] this was coming.” Meaning, DOJ chief Eric Holder and his minions did this all on his own — not that Obama’s off the hook if that’s the case.

But for all his railing against the DOJ’s brief, Dean is just fine letting the White House hold off on repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Step forward, step back.
