Sauce for the goose

It’s wrong and politically cowardly for the President to simply refuse to defend a law that he doesn’t like, like Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.  It’s just as cowardly when a Republican governor does the same thing in the other direction.

Look, ladies and gentlemen.  The legislature decides policy and passes laws.  The executive carries them out.  If you want to decide policy and pass laws, stop running for president and governor and run for the legislature.

This country is losing all concept of separation of powers.  We’re moving (and have already moved a long way) from the original concept of one branch passing laws, one branch enforcing laws, and one branch applying laws, to a terrifying world where all three branches compete to do all three at the same time.
