McDonnell's nondiscrimination directive carries force of office, not law

McDonnell's nondiscrimination directive carries force of office, not law


Bob Marshall says it best: "There's no such thing as an executive directive. It's a press release with fluff around it," said Del. Robert G. Marshall (R-Prince William), who opposes nondiscrimination legislation.


The media adores McDonnell as he moves in their direction with words of support for gay rights but a meaningless "directive" that does not overturn his own legal opinion as Attorney General.

During the Reagan Administration, true believers wore buttons that said "Let Reagan Be Reagan". The term "Let McDonnell be McDonnell" today is a pitch to the Governor to not betray himself and not to reverse his own words and plainly stated policies while he dances in broad daylight with the left and anti-family forces.

Public Advocate knows where to buy some Marshmellow Fluff to go with these waffles.

Even the Washington Post is confused after reading various headlines: "Gov. Robert F. McDonnell's (R) decision to issue an executive directive prohibiting discrimination in the state workforce including on the basis of sexual orientation when he had previously resisted issuing an executive order on the same topic has raised some questions about the difference between the two gubernatorial actions."
