They’ve shoveled some huge piles of BS at us before, but this has to be one of the bigger ones:

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.

What a total load of Pelosi. They had this carefully choreographed from the start, and the media lapped it up as always. It was no accident.

So they want us to believe that President “Gutsy Call” with his backbone like a ramrod — the same president who single-handedly took down the world’s most wanted terrorist — altered his position just because his big-mouth Veep couldn’t keep his yap in check on TV show?

Based on this excuse, it’s a good thing Biden didn’t say the administration was going to nuke England, or else Obama would have had no choice but to follow through with it.

But hey, we haven’t been talking about the economy for a few minutes, and that was the whole point. Mission Accomplished… temporarily.

    Where's the upside in this 'revelation' for the huge majority of mooderates and independents that *aren't* gay? Especially those that have either divorced or put off wedding plans as a result of the Fail-by-Design economy?

    Trust me, their focus will remain on righting their OWN economic lives before they can even entertain the luxury of faux concern of others. Like junk science GW, this shizz is DOA.

    So, here's the script… Got that ABC, NBC, CBS, Shep Smith, CNN, Reuters, AP…?
    You all have that 12 page story on Romney cutting the hair of that "gay" kid?
    Cool… let's go…

    VP goes out and does a traditional Biden…
    Pres calls a hasty news conference, and reveals that he's splitting the issue, and is personally for gay marriage, but thinks it's a state's rights issue. I know, I know, but we all have to keep a straight face on this one.
    Next day, release the Romney story like it's "just been discovered"
    Let the talking heads talk…

    Whew… that'll take care of not talking about the economy for the week of May 6. Come back next Saturday for May 13 weekly plan. We know there are moles in here, so we don't want it to get out too soon, or Romney will bring up the economy again.

    Just so they don't get too comfortable? JP Morgan ate $2 bil. in trading losses and some feel it's the result of Dodd-Frank.

    “The regulatory and political environment is already a headwind and clearly this doesn’t help,” wrote Deutsche Bank AG New York-based analysts, including Matt O’Connor, in a report. Bank of America analyst Guy Moszkowski wrote separately that JPMorgan’s losses are “very poorly timed for the industry” and will be taken by those seeking stricter regulation as “an example of prop trading dangers.”

    Methinks the significance to this latest flatulance is Obubbleears waffling yet again. You have convictions or you don't. What changed to make Barry reconsider his position? Nothing. Even gays can see this, and are offended by it.

    IOW who cares?

    When I see something like this so-called ‘apology’ making MSM headlines I don’t wonder at that which happened but rather why these people think it’s even newsworthy.

    IOW so what? Something must be going on over there that they don’t WANT to report and DO want to distract us from. Like, what’s with Clooney? Ever wonder why he hasn’t married one of those beauties?

    No kidding. The latest polling data shows that Romney is up over Obama 50% to 43%, so it looks like although Obama got a bump in fundraising he lost support from the voters.

    This story could actual backfire even more on Obama if the Romney camp takes advantage of it. I would create a commercial called "who is in charge?" in which it is pointed out that Obama only changed his position because his Biden voiced his. This shows lack of conviction on Obama's part if you ask me and begs the question who really is in charge at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

    I wonder if Biden knows anything about Fast & Furious? It would be more than embarrassing if Vice President Big Mouth were to mention that little kerfuffle publicly.

    “This story could actual backfire even more on Obama if the Romney camp takes advantage of it.”

    I would very much like to see Romney take advantage of something but all I’ve seen so far is a REACTIONARY. Get a backbone! HE NEEDS TO GET OUT IN FRONT AND LEAD not just respond or react to things said or intimated. It’s worrisome.

    Agreed. To steal from Braveheart:

    William Wallace: "And if you would just lead them to freedom, they'd follow you. And so would I."

    LOL…Perhaps O'Keefe could set up an interview with him. He could disguise himself as a NYT or WaPo reporter.

  12. SignPainterGuy on May 11th, 2012 2:48 pm

    Oooo, that would be worth paying to read or watch !

  13. SignPainterGuy on May 11th, 2012 2:54 pm

    Now you have me wondering; DOES Biden even know about F&F or has he been threatened with extended closet stays if he blabs about it ?

  14. SignPainterGuy on May 11th, 2012 2:58 pm

    "…some feel it`s the result of Dodd-Frank." FINALLY ! I hope they scream and shout it from the rooftops !

    I`ve known it for years; why are these bankers just now catching on ? Or are they just now daring to whisper the obvious ?

    Swede,

    +1 as always. Most of us on the Right tend to focus on powerful and connected Gays in H'wood etc. ( Declared or not? ) The truth is most gays work in service-based industries that will take anyone. Tat's, lisps and all.

    Read Min. Wage. Shared living arrangements, roommates, relatives, hetero or gay lovers is tough enough in the best of times. Add $4 gas, spiraling food prices and they have to be feeling this MORE than married couples that can raid retirement accounts, kid's college savings etc.

    Most of us figured that Barack Obama consulted with a few people on his way to evolutionary completion — donors, political consultants, various wise men of the Left, and also Joe Biden. Little did we know that evolution would be midwifed by the Creator:

    "…..you know, I, you know, we are both practicing Christians and obviously this position may be considered to put us at odds with the views of others." ( Obama)

    http://hotair.com/archives/2012/05/11/obamateuris

    Whatever little barry and mooch are practicing it is NOT Christianity. There is no way you could spend twenty years in a racist church and legitimately be called a Christian. And the filthy bastard knows it which is why this is one of the occasions where he stumbles and brackets his “I” with two “you knows.”

    Saw this….love it !
