Report: Biden Had to Apologize to Obama for Forcing Him to Support Gay Marriage
Weekly Standard

Report: Biden Had to Apologize to Obama for Forcing Him to Support Gay Marriage Biden reassures everyone Obama is still the "leader" on gay marriage. Mark Hemingway May 10, 2012 7:16 PM

Bloomberg reports that Biden went to Obama yesterday morning to apologize for painting him into a corner on gay marriage:

Vice President Joe Biden apologized to President Barack Obama for making remarks that prompted the president to disclose his support for same-sex marriage before he planned to, according to an administration official.

Biden delivered the apology to the president yesterday morning, before Obama gave an interview to ABC News in which he said he’s had a change of heart and now supports legal gay marriage, the official said.

Biden’s remarks in a May 6 broadcast of NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he is “absolutely comfortable” with same-sex marriage forced the president to speed up his timetable for revealing his position, administration officials said.

“The president has been the leader on this issue from Day One and the vice president never intended to distract from that,” Kendra Barkoff, Biden’s press secretary, said in an e- mail.

Don't worry, Obama's still in charge! Again, who could have forseen that Biden's incessant logorrhea would end up humiliating the president and forcing him to do something with potentially disastrous political consequences?

C’mon the whole thing was scripted to coincide with N. Carolina shooting down gay marriage (sic) and then playing the “bully” card on Mitt.

The Democrats don’t say “hello” without war gaming it. This was planned.

It was also scripted for George "I'm not gay" Clooney's Hollyweird fundraiser.

It was planned for the convention -- notably, so was the bully story! That's why Stu White's lying wasn't properly vetted. But this silly post-fiasco portion with Biden kow-towing is just kabuki.

Damn right it was scripted. Every damn thing he does is.

Hey Obie....Have you checked on your son's family lately...or will that be closer to the election. Will the Chicago boys "plant" nooses?? Yeh...That's how dirty I think you all are.

Despite it all, I love my country....now to get it back on track....

I hardly think so. Crazy Joe Biden shoots his mouth off all the time.

The Queer "marriage" issue was something Obama definitely didn't want to address head on because it alienates regular voters.

Even his union supporters (the blue collar Irish types in places like Detroit and Chicago) don't want to be labeled in the homosexual party.

But, it's too late for that now. The democrat party IS officially the homosexual party.

It would be interesting to know what other secret plans Mr. Flexible Obama has in store for us after the election.

Right. Joe Biden, a career politician, just happened to jump the gun on Obama. Joe might be a gaff-master, but he isn't a total idiot.

If Obama was truthful he planned to say this before the convention, why the apology?

Exactly. The Soros Administration had it all planned out a long time ago.

Hard to believe the “Weekly Standard” would fall for this story.

Biden will step down at the end of the term or resign and open door for Hillary. This will reenergize the Democrat base and hopefully give them the “Sarah” bump the Dems are looking for.

This makes Hillary an incumbent for the 2016 race. Scary isn’t it!

Good grief! Do they even know how they sound?

They’re saying Biden is not allowed to have an opinion until after Obama milks it for all it’s worth during the campaign.

Yes, it was, and those who don’t believe it are very naive.

This is an attempt to explain the suspicious timing of the “change of heart.”

I don’t think it will work.

“The Queer “marriage” issue was something Obama definitely didn’t want to address head on because it alienates regular voters.”

With all due respect, I disagree. Obozo thought this was going to shore up his base.

Biden is not the only administration official to “coincidentally” come out in support of gay marriage a few days before Obama’s announcement. Nothing
this big happens without a script.

This was all orchestrated to give Obama an “excuse” for making his announcement.

Absolutely - this was right out of the Fluke playbook. Drudge headlining now with Backlash - Mitt leading obama by 7%

It already has worked. King Obama’s Solomon like coming out has already taken up 3 days of the news cycle.

So far we have had Susie Fluke, the War on Women, and gay marriage in the distraction parade, what is next?

Drudge has Romney up over Obama by 7%.

That’s a good thing. No way does this help Obama.

IMHO

I think Obama was subjected to moleststion in his life from his Leftist groomers and has resentment for gays.

I think bamster was molested by his bisexual pedophile communist father, Frank Marshall Davis.

That’s gotta leave a lot of psychological damage.

I don't get the controversy.

David Gregory asked Biden FIVE specific questions about gay marriage.

What's the guy supposed do?

Evade all of them?

And why would this force Obama’s hand?

No one cares what Biden thinks about anything.

I think the MSM and the Democrat Party realized - after the fact - that Obama may have just lost the election with his endorsement of gay marriage.

They need someone to blame, and that someone is Biden.

The gay creator of Will & Grace came out and said that Biden had made exactly the same comments in a meeting he was in on a couple of weeks earlier—with his White House handlers recording the whole thing. Thus he believes Biden’s bit was scripted and being tested out in that meeting like an out of town tryout testing new material.

Scripted completely.

I think it's more of a 'love/hate' type thing.
