He says as it related to marijuana:
"I can't nullify congressional law. I can't ask the Justice Department to say, 'Ignore completely a federal law that's on the books.' What I can say is, 'Use your prosecutorial discretion and properly prioritize your resources to go after things that are really doing folks damage.'
He should have said this about poker.

And yet, he is willing to ask the Justice Department to completely ignore the Federal Law that states illegals who are in America must be deported. So for marijuana he won't get involved, but with a stroke of a pen he is ordering Eric Holder and Janet Napoletano NOT to enforce Federal Immigration law.
He has also used Executive orders to by pass Congress on two other issues.
You can't make this type of statement and turn around and do the shit he is doing and not be called on it. Simply put he doesn't care about poker, if he did, he would tell Holder to back off the online sites and/or put out an Executive Order to allow it.
Don't hold your breath folks.
