Pelosi Flubs Attempt to Bash Republicans on Gay Marriage

It’s always fun to see liberals squirm. They know they’re lying, don’t have  facts on their side and the only way they get things done is to rely on the  uninformed voter. Check it out:

While arguing on Wednesday that Republicans have long known the Defense  of Marriage Act is unconstitutional, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi  inadvertently and incorrectly blamed Republicans for trying to pass the Respect  for Marriage Act — a pro-gay marriage bill proposed by a prominent Democrat and  endorsed by former President Bill Clinton.

“Republicans knew — and they know right now — that DOMA is not  constitutional,” Pelosi said. “In 2005, they introduced a bill, Respect for  Marriage Act … [which] stated that, in the case of DOMA, the courts should not  have the right of judicial review — the right to review the constitutionality of  the act.”

Pelosi apparently meant to refer to the 2005 Marriage Protection Act, a  Republican-sponsored bill that would have prevented federal courts from  reviewing the constitutionality of DOMA.

“Why would you pass a bill in the Congress … that said the courts do not  have the right to rule on the constitutionality of a bill, if you thought it  could withstand that test?” Pelosi asked. “Because you don’t think it can  withstand that test.”
