I haven't heard any reactions on the DOMA decision from the conservatives that said they were for "States Rights". A huge part of Justice Kennedy's legal justification centered around the federal court overstepping it bounds and infringing on an area he said only the states were constitutionally allowed to decide. I wonder if they're going to show they believe in those principles and applaud the decision or if they'll show everyone it was just their way of sidestepping the issue.
