Skip to comments.W.H.: Biden forced Obama’s hand on gay marriage
Posted on 05/09/2012 3:31:10 PM PDT by dynachrome
For President Barack Obama and his team, the decision to back gay marriage came down to a choice between two unpalatable alternatives: support it and brave the backlash in battleground states where the issue could be a liability or keep silent and be accused by allies of gutlessness and putting politics over principle.
Administration officials said the president planned to announce his support before the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte this September. But they admit that Vice President Joe Biden did, indeed, force their hand.

It was a hand job.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Threatened to out him?
Biden’s going to the wood shed.
They believed the false polling that is out there and will soon find out what a stupid idea that was.
Reggie Love is happy!
On another thread is the youtube clip and I swear ... zero is talking with a feminine almost lisp.
So how did Obama explain to his girls about the birds and the birds and the bees and the bees and why if everyone did this, life on earth would vanish.
It was interesting to see this immediately follow the John Travolta stories yesterday.
Some big heads in Big Media have allegedly been starting to sympathize with, worry about or downright turn on the messiah lately.
He gets a huge “gay bounce” from the media for a couple or few weeks, PLUS....
I’ll bet Unexpected Thursday’s job numbers aren’t going to look good.
And I’ll bet the Plagiarizer set up Hussein today with his previous comments.
At any rate, the leftist freaks are deliriously joyful today, AND it’s PARTY WEDNESDAY at the White Hut!
Biden pressured Obama, forced his hand? LOL!
Obama wanted to “pivot.” Not sure how it’d be received, he sent Biden out first, to absorb any arrows that resulted.
I don’t believe it....I think it’s a plot to triangulate Mitt and completely sever any evangelical support. Biden’s a goof, but his “slip” was deliberate.
Did Barry form his decision to support gay marriage based on his relationships with Frank Marshal Davis, Larry Sinclair, Bill Frist, and Donald Young?
Dumbo biden just got snowed by mac daddy. If anything goes wrong with mac daddies decision guess who will get all the blame.
Dumb as a box of straw.
“Stand up, Joe”.
One suspects that Mister Biden was carefully instructed and coached as to what, and how to endorse gay "marriage". Biden can serve as a useful fool because I predict that he might be making a convenient exit from the political stage.
As I've said hereabouts numerous times, I predict that Hillary will replace Biden on the ticket; and, that this has been in the works for a couple of years. (My reading of the tea leaves, and my hunch, and it's just a hunch, gets stronger every day.)
Oh, and since Dems can never, ever, ever be honest about anything, expect two things...(my hunch-based predictions, and welcome to them)
1. Biden will FAKE an illness, and make the "painful" decision not to run, for the good of America; and...
2. Mrs. Clinton will pretend to not want the job. And thousands of coached and organized Dem groupies will plead with Hillary to accept, creating a false drama that will have Chris Matthews, and other obedient Dems pretending to swoon.
Again, just my hunches.
One problem with your scenario: would Maobama really want Hitlery for his Veep? His agreeing to it would make him a sitting duck.
Biden is on our side? Who would have known.
You could be right. Some guy thought that Obama might be afraid to have the Clintons in the position to initiate operation arkancide, so I suppose he could get some sort of *insurance* to insure it wouldn’t happen and vamp up his security service. - I sure hope not; but some imagine that Hillary is in a position to call the shots in an election. Evidently, a lot of people weren’t watching when the Clinton horror inhabited the White House.
I was under the impression that it was Adam and Eve.
Not Adam and Steve.
“They believed the false polling that is out there and will soon find out what a stupid idea that was.”
No way they did; it has not passed the ultimate popularity test (the secret ballot, where they can’t hound you at your home or job) in ANY state (including CA, ME). Either he was bribed to do this with campaign funds, or he was bribed with retirement funds; if he pushes the Bolshevik agenda further before the election, it was the latter.
Bin Laden Leaves Joe Biden Off Hit List, Suggests VP Could Help Bring Down U.S. ... documents. seized during the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. ... he says stupid things, and he behaves at times like a complete goofball.
I think your hunches are pretty accurate, but you left out the side benefit of distracting America from zero’s record and changing the term of the debate to social issues.
In fact, every conservative should say “This is not news. We knew BO’s position all along and that his half-hearted position before was just another of his lies. Now let’s get back to talking about the economy...”
This is B.S. Last week, Mark Levin told us the marxist-in-chief’s schedule and Nobama had 2 meetings with Biden on different days. I’m sure the meetings were to discuss Biden’s upcoming appearance on the Sunday shows. This was a planned “outing.” Nobama has always been for gay marriage no matter what he’s stated in the past. He’s a liar; even his “outing” yesterday was full of lies.
They did it because Hollyweird has been turning their backs on Obama. His fundraising from the Hollyweirdos has been way down. He’s having an event with Georgia Porgey (probably another one in the closet) and they planned this to get more and bigger donations from the Hollyweirdos. Look, he collected $1 million in 90 minutes after he came out.
