Posted on 05/07/2012 4:32:21 AM PDT by lbryce
Vice President Joe Biden said Sunday hes absolutely comfortable with same-sex marriage, making him the highest Obama administration official to indicate support for the issue.
President Barack Obama remains formally opposed to same-sex marriage, though his position has been said to be evolving. On NBCs Meet the Press, host David Gregory asked Biden about his own views.
And youre comfortable with same-sex marriage now? Gregory asked.
I am vice president of the United States of America, Biden said. The president sets the policy. I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties. And quite frankly, I dont see much of a distinction beyond that.
He said he cant speak for the administration coming out in support of same-sex marriage, but said Obama has been a champion for gay rights.
The president continues to fight, whether its Dont Ask, Dont Tell or whether it is making sure across the board that you cannot discriminate, Biden said.
He said his measure of an issue is when the social culture begins to embrace it.
I think Will and Grace probably did more to educate the American public than almost anything anyones ever done so far, Biden said, referring to the NBC sitcom that ended in 2006. People fear that which is different. Now theyre beginning to understand.
NBCs Chuck Todd said Bidens office told him he was speaking for his own evolving on marriage not for the admin[istration].
Watch below, via NBC:
Biden is comfortable with the intellectual heft typical of men who have never worked an honest day in their lives.
He certainly upsets the comfort level of most people. The guy is a dolt.
Isn’t he a (nominal) Catholic?
What a disgrace.
Biden is just short of being able to be a moron..
Of course he is comfortable with perverts getting hitched.
People fear that which is different. Now theyre beginning to understand.
No people are disgusted by what is a perversion and our Government trying to force our acceptance of it.......
President Barack Obama remains formally opposed to same-sex marriage, though his position has been said to be evolving.
His actions say otherwise.
Really? What does Mrs Biden say?
Next he’ll follow Ex-NJ Gov McGreavey’s lead:
“I’m a gay American!”
“Stand up, Chuck! Let ‘em see you!”
I hope he’s comfortable with his search for a new job when Barry throws his ass off the ticket. It’s Obama/Hillary now.
No accident, Biden is simply being Obamas useful idiot again. Read carefully, “no distinction between our beliefs,” “Obama has been a champion for gay rights,”. The president continues to fight.”. This was nothing more than a back door method of delivering a coded message from Obama to the gay community. This was more about the presidents message than bidens beliefs.
I would love to be a fly on the wall in that meeting when he is informed that his swishy loving behind is O*U*T.
Pack yo bags, idiot boi!!!
Course, it will be good to see Biden out too...
***I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, ****
Did he use vasiline when they bent him over a barrel to see if he could squeal like a pig?
I thought this guy was a Catholic!
