Will The President Sue California Next?

It seems that the Obama Justice Department had no problem suing Arizona when they passed SB 1070, getting tough on illegal immigration. Now they are faced with a bit of a quandary. The Justice Department sued to uphold the Supremacy Clause … which simply put, says that if State Law and Federal Law are in conflict, Federal Law wins. I am by no means agreeing with the Obama Administration that a law that mirrors the Federal Immigration Statute is actually in conflict with Federal Law. Rather, I am wondering if the Administration will continue to defend Federal Supremacy … even when it is not in their political interests.

I am talking about the upcoming ballot initiative in California, making it legal for adults to possess up to one ounce of marijuana. If passed, this new law will most definitely be in conflict with Federal Statutes. Yet I do not hear a peep coming out of Eric Holder or the Justice Department. So, if Californians pass Prop 19 this November, I fully expect the Obama Administration to sue California under the Supremacy Clause.

After all … What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

Unless of course, Democrats feel that stoned citizens are a protected minority (and likely to be Obama voters)

I doubt the Prez will insert himself into this one, but who knows.
