Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite their many attempts to claim otherwise.
That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO.
Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the chaos that erupted inside the West Wing after an emailed transcript of the interview landed in the inbox of the White House press team.” A furious Valerie Jarrett, Becker adds, accused Biden of “downright disloyalty.”
Called it. I said all the way back when that Obama never changed his position on gay marriage and only backed it because he was painted into a corner by Biden and they needed another group of low information one-issue voters to flock to the polls.
Hope you blinders wearing goobers enjoy being played.
What an utterly ingracious and inarticulate tool.
Of all the things to say to survivors of a terrorist bombing …
While Joe Biden is a bumbling idiot, he wasn’t referring to the actual bombing when he said it was worth it. Joe was referring to his going to Boston for the memorial and that making the trip “was worth it” because he got to hear the survivors and families of the victims speak.
While sticking up for any of the idiots in this administration makes my eyes bleed, let’s not resort to leftist tactics by taking things out of context intentionally for no reason other than to make some stooge look bad….because you know if this was a Republican making the same speech, they’d be screaming to the high heavens about this poor choice of wording.
the mentality that you have to have to rub period blood on your face must be astounding
I call it a good clue that someone suffers from a mental illness.
Pro-Russia protesters in the Ukraine fly anti-American banners….
Who knew that when Hillary Clinton presented her stupid “Reset” button to the Russians they would be resetting things back to the Cold War.
Just another Obama administration foreign policy success.

But remember kids, Obama said al Qaeda is on it’s heels.
People who think only government has the capability to build or provide funding to have roads built.
Several Democrats said that Kathleen Sebelius, who resigned as secretary of health and human services, had been mentioned as someone who could wage a serious challenge to Senator Pat Roberts.
Good lord. Just when you think you’ve taken all the trash out, you turn a corner and find a big old turd right in the middle of your carpet.
…I’d say “welcome” and tell you how much I appreciate each and every one of you special little snowflakes….
But let’s be serious. More than half of you will be unfollowing me by the end of the week as soon as I don’t adhere to every last, teeny-tiny, thing that you believe, think or wish for.
On the other hand, to all of you who have followed me for some time, and especially those who have been with me from way back when I only had a dozen or so followers….you guys rock.
Except you, Carl. You can shut the fuck up.
