|Sarah Palin chides Obama over DOMA decision|

Media personality and possible presidential candidate Sarah Palin responded today to the Department of Justice's announcement that the Obama administration will no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court.
Palin responded to a question from the National Organization for Marriage, which was posted on the group’s blog earlier today.
"I have always believed that marriage is between one man and one woman. Like the majority of Americans, I support the Defense of Marriage Act and find it appalling that the Obama administration decided not to defend this federal law which was enacted with broad bipartisan support and signed into law by a Democrat president. It's appalling, but not surprising that the president has flip-flopped on yet another issue from his stated position as a candidate to a seemingly opposite position once he was elected."
Last week, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the DOJ, and President Obama, believed that Section 3 of DOMA is unconstitutional. DOMA's Section 3 has been found unconstitutional in several court cases currently making their way through the legal system.
