Posted on 05/10/2012 3:22:45 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Vice President Joe Biden apologized to President Barack Obama Wednesday in the Oval Office for jumping the gun on the administration's public embrace of same-sex marriage and forcing his boss's hand, a person knowledgeable on the contrite exchange told Yahoo News on Thursday.
"The vice president expressed remorse, regret," said the individual, who requested anonymity to describe an unusual, private exchange between the buttoned-up Obama and his freewheeling vice president. The president told Biden, the individual said, that he understood Biden's comments on Sunday had come "from the heart."
The source described Obama's response as very similar to his public comments in an interview with ABC News's Robin Roberts, with whom he shared his history-making announcement that he backed the right of gay couples to marry.

Nice goin’ Plugs! HA HA!
I still remember Obama’s gaffe of “Punished by a baby.”
Just something I can’t escape as I travel 57 states.
Those people in the White House know how to dance, don’t they?
It’s a total farce. Play acting.
Obama can’t run on his record, so he runs with a script. This is nothing but theater. Lies, lies and more fing lies.
Totally planned and coordinated.
What did the WaP0 know and when did it know it? Contacts with AxleShaft? Ploofer?
“I promise you, the president has a big *ick. I promise you.”
The only shocking thing here is that they really believe the country is clueless. This level of acting would get them banned from a Mickey Rooney barnyard production.
Yup, this was all just an accident and Joe jumped the gun...of course it is. No, this wasn’t stage managed to get the desired outcome from all those reluctant gay bundlers...of course it wasn’t.
Now granted, Biden IS that stupid. But Not this time. He played his role like a pro.
The orchestration continues, despite it’s obviousness.
Gay marriage will now be the topic for the next few weeks.
How exactly does a gay shotgun marriage work?
How does a gay shotgun marriage work?
The bullet has a hamster inside
Well...now we KNOW it was all a set up.....
Plugs must have heard the discussion some time ago and just thought that it was pretty much common knowledge that Bambi would support it. That’s one on you Biden..and another one on you Bambi!
Biden was the frontrunner. If no outrage, then it was safe for Obama to step up and claim the glory.
Total BullSh*t, they really think they’re believable, most lying pieces of crap I’ve ever seen in my life!!!
Biden was instructed to do as he did, and this gave Mister Obama the chance to be a fake reluctant gay hero.
Now don't anyone forget.
My "hunch" is that the Dems also plan to replace Biden on the 2012 ticket; and that ...
1. Biden will fake an illness (rather than admit that he's being shown the door, Dems are never honest about anything),
2. Hillary will become the veep candidate, but only after faking that she does not want it (and only after multiple pleas for her to re-consider, again, Dems simply cannot be honest about anything).
Historical note for context. IIRC, in 1999 the Clintons had their media allies buy television commercials begging the Clintons to attend the Womens' World Cup soccer final. They, of course, planned to attend anyway, but they chose to FAKE the suspense by having people publicly beg them to attend. They love the reluctant hero performance, so watch for it again.
Is this scenario seeming more likely to y'all? Obama gets rid of (baggage) Biden, picks up (female) Hillary, and gets a side-show distraction, all at the same time, n'est ce pas?
I dont think its a gaffe if you believe what your saying.
That’s funny right there!
O stakes grounds in something that is not even a federal matter
Biden trashes O's new found voting block
Trash whoever has an R after their name as hating homosexuals
Claim romney bullied gays in high school (or whatever school)
Biden comes around to see his holy leader's ways and apologizes to O; because after all, O is now the homosexual's guardian.
Its getting old. This homosexual marriage thing is a states right's issue, not a federal one. There is nothing about full faith and credit here.
Any sane American already knows how a democrat operates: If it is bad for America, the democrats are for it. If the mushy middle cannot see that now, this country just might deserve what it gets and I hope the idiot citizens who vote for it suffer the hardest..
They Dirty Dance,lol
That’s just Short Bus for you. Running his mouth and stepping in poo. He just can’t help it.
All part of the plan.
Nothing in this administration is a mistake.
I’m sure they had to practice a couple days to master this difficult routine.
Perhaps they even used the “special” teleprompter that is programmed not to snicker when abused.
This is damage control now to cover for Obama who was not pushed into saying anything.
