Holder recommends breaking oath of office

The chief law enforcer tells other law enforcers to break their oaths of office. How about the oath he swore to? Yes. Eric Holder works for Obama.

But Holder’s job is to uphold our laws. So Holder is not doing the job he swore to. He only defends the laws he likes. And, even worse, he tells other law enforcers to act criminally also.

Holder told a gathering of state attorneys general in Washington that they will face no opposition from the Justice Department if they ignore their states’ statutory or constitutional bans on recognizing same-sex marriages because the laws do not “advance the values that once led our forebears to declare unequivocally that all are created equal and entitled to equal opportunity.” 
… “Eric Holder apparently isn't satisfied with refusing to carry out his own oath to defend the Constitution, he wants to see state attorneys general do the same,” responded Carrie Severino, chief counsel to the Judicial Crisis Network (JCN). 
“But in a country under the rule of law, where the executive doesn't have free rein to declare laws unconstitutional by default, attorneys general should provide the same zealous defense all lawyers do. That means they defend their client even if they disagree, unless there is no viable argument to be made,” Severino, a former law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, pointed out.
It is childish to only eat desert. Come on, become an adult. Sometimes you have to do things you don’t like BECAUSE it is your job. And you promised to do your job. (Of course.) It is adult to resign if you refuse to do your job.
