Video – White House Punts on DOMA and ENDA All In One Week But Be Proud and Grateful For The DADT Repeal

It seems that Chris Johnson of The Blade has picked up Kerry Elevelds torch in The White House Press room twice this week pressing Robert Gibbs about the possibility of any movement  on repealing DOMA or passing ENDA over the next two years

Gibbs, who bobs and weaves around both questions like does finally state that movement forward will be  “inordinately challenging given the current make-up of Congress.” (No shit!)

Gibbs falls back on the lies that the White House has to defend DOMA and when pushed on whether the president regrets not moving on DOMA when the Democrats controlled the House Gibbs instead referenced the “monumental achievement” of the repeal of DADT and that they are “proud and grateful” for it.

So in other words kids we’re in for a loooong wait if it’s left up to The White House and Congress
