Santorum Bashes Appeals Court Where Judge Struck Down DOMA

At a Michigan rally Sunday, Rick Santorum aggressively tore into the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, where a judge recently declared the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional.

He accused liberals of “populating the 9th Circuit with a bunch of radical judges,” saying they should be removed in order to “send a very clear message that if you are going to be a radical judge and out of control.”

“Sometimes you need to stand up to a bully,” he added. “And the courts are acting like bullies.”
