Dan Choi vs. Valerie Jarrett: A CNN Smackdown (Video)

From Pam’s House Blend:

Valerie Jarrett was just on CNN to respond to Dan Choi, who earlier today excoriated and responded to HER  and the President over DADT. The clip, aboves, includes an excerpt from Dan’s interview on CNN. She stuck to the same Obama administration’s talking points — the incorrect ones — she used earlier today. It’s stunning. Does the Obama administration understand how badly they’ve handled this issue?

Jarrett stated that DOJ “has no choice but to defend the laws that are on the books.” That’s just not true. She should know better by now, especially since the Obama DOJ has refused to enforce a number of laws. Even Ted Olson says they don’t have to appeal. But she keeps saying it.

Then, when Wolf Blitzer asked her why the President doesn’t say the law is unconstitutional, she claims he’s done just that. That question HAS NOT been answered. It’s simply not true.

One thing you need to admit though.  Valerie Jarrett is an amazing LIAR.
