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 hes had a change of heart and now supports legal gay marriage, the official said.
Bidens remarks in a May 6 broadcast of NBCs 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, Bidens 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?
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!
Dumb and dumber.
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.
Obama: Flip-flopping from Behind.
BS, Joe just went in and said “Hey, I didn’t pick me!”
“BS, this was all scripted..”
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?
“BS, this was all scripted..”
Yes, it was a scripted but plugs being a complete drama queen and making Dear Leader look like a fool was not in the plan.
These folks do not do ANYTHING without a focus group,dry run, trial balloon, “projecting” attack on the opposition and a media set up..
Drudge has Romney up over Obama by 7%.
That’s a good thing. No way does this help Obama.
PLEASE, NO BATHING SUIT PICTURES.
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.
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.
Maybe they were bribed with tons of cash.
I think it's more of a 'love/hate' type thing.
