Dou­ble stan­dard?

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

Re: July 9 ar­ti­cles “Judge rules in Mas­sachusetts’ fa­vor, against gay mar­riage ban” and “Ari­zona im­mi­gra­tion law­suit fo­cuses on fed­eral, state pow­ers.”

I read with mild in­ter­est the ar­ti­cle re­gard­ing the judge in Mas­sachusetts rul­ing that the fed­eral law against same-sex mar­raige is un­con­sti­tu­tional, then find an ar­ti­cle where Ari­zona is be­ing sued over the “right of govern­ment to keep states from en­act­ing laws that usurp fed­eral author­ity.”

Has there ever been a bet­ter ex­am­ple of the dou­ble stan­dard used by the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion to tai­lor the leg­isla­tive land­scape to suit his lib­eral agenda? Maybe the gays in Mas­sachusetts should bus down to Ari­zona to protest in fa­vor of states rights?
