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.

PocketFives does not recommend playing online poker on sites offering rake-based games in the United States. Your money may be at risk. We feel more comfortable at this time recommending no-rake sites such as HogWild Poker.
We understand your frustration with the current situation, and that frustration is shared by all of us in the poker community. We hope to have positive news soon regarding online poker regulation in the U.S.

JasonKoon 2013-05-18 00:37:09 Mind is blown how @PokerStars SCOOP and @WPT 25k Championship overlap. So sad I won't be able to make it :(
HighlandFox 2013-05-18 00:18:35 @petegotaplan Thanks, Bud! #nittagetowinnage
HighlandFox 2013-05-17 23:21:21 RT @Brian__OD: railing @HighlandFox is SCOOP H Omaha H/L. I have zero idea proper strategy for this game

constantcolorup 2013-05-17 22:26:56 Frustrating day but still pretty good net, won 82hyper for ~6k, 4th in ipoker 100r for ~5.5k and a bunch of other cashes, SCOOP airball tho
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 22:21:03 @xtremepedro01 I actually think it'll be under 400 & can forsee problems for late comers being blinded off 'cause they changed the format
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 22:17:10 @RandALLin @PokerStars ya makes me think I should just take tomorrow off & rest up
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 22:16:19 @xtremepedro01 ok so I get some odds that its 400 ? gimme $200 to my $100 and its booked
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 22:11:59 @xtremepedro01 sidebets on how many runners it gets? I'll take the under on 500
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 22:05:43 @SpaceyFCB @PokerStars if I didn't know they changed the format I could have ez showed up late & blinded out of a 3 handed game not ring
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 22:04:34 @SpaceyFCB @PokerStars ya that would work... guess I'm just annoyed that I reg'ed for something weeks ago & they change the format
RandALLin 2013-05-17 22:04:08 @KevinMacPhee @PokerStars I don't even think it's a 2 day event. Having to play 4 rounds would affect my sleep for Sundays probably too.
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 21:59:33 @SpaceyFCB @PokerStars so a mix-max shootout? not a 10 handed shootout as advertised? seems like a good idea for a format tho..
RandALLin 2013-05-17 21:59:19 @rcdaut loool
Jymaster11 2013-05-17 21:50:06 Ohhhhhhhh whaaaaaaaaaat, Scooter choppin event #14 for $122,000 snonks @scpokertrojans
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 21:48:26 @StarsRegProblms nah being a bitch would be more like sitting behind an anonymous account insulting people you clearly know
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 21:47:05 @PakmanMMA the shootout format is the purest format.. no ICM & adapting 9 handed to sh to HU... starting 3-4 handed tbl 1 feels like mix max
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 21:45:35 @RandALLin @PokerStars seems that way to me... assuming it gets 300-400 ppl... would be LOL if it gets 200-300 & some tables are HU matches
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 21:41:01 Completely ruins the format and gives edge to shorthanded deep stack players right out of the gate....
SimonCharette 2013-05-17 21:40:57 @IamJoFay TY!!
RandALLin 2013-05-17 21:40:32 @KevinMacPhee @PokerStars Does that mean the first table is auto like 3-4 handed or whatever?
HighlandFox 2013-05-17 21:40:26 RT @PakmanMMA: @gborooo #goat
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 21:40:13 Liked the idea of two 10 handed tables to the win, but HATE the idea of playing 2 or 3 handed 1st before the real shootout format begins
KevinMacPhee 2013-05-17 21:39:13 So @PokerStars removed the 100 entrant cap on the 2k SCOOP shootout tomorrow... such a bad idea. I'm def unregging...
