Oh My: Obama's Department of Justice Defend Defense of Marriage Act in Court

As much of an uproar is raised by opponents of Prop 8 and ridicule is directed at those who support Prop 8 and other laws that keep marriage in between a man and a woman, there very little said so far about Obama's position and actions regarding this case from the tolerance bullies:

President Obama’s Justice Department filed legal papers late Thursday to dismiss the first same sex marriage case filed in federal court.

The Justice Department defended the Defense Of Marriage Act, or DOMA, which as a candidate then-Sen. Obama opposed, saying that the plaintiffs Arthur Smelt and Christopher Hammer are seeking a ruling on "whether by virtue of their marital status they are constitutionally entitled to acknowledgment of their union by states that do not recognize same-sex marriage, and whether they are similarly entitled to certain federal benefits. Under the law binding on this Court, the answer to these questions must be no.”

I have heard very little about this in the Mainstream Media. They seem to be trying to sweep underneath the rug. Shouldn't the gay rights activists be mad and protesting Obama as much as they do Carrie Prejean?
