Democratic sources: Obama aides annoyed with Biden Posted by CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jessica Yellin
Washington (CNN) - Multiple top Democrats said Thursday the president's senior aides are deeply annoyed with Vice President Joe Biden for forcing the conversation on same-sex marriage.
One source said Biden has, in the past, counseled the president against announcing support for same-sex marriage - making the circumstances that much more frustrating.

Biden made comments supporting such unions during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" that aired Sunday, seemingly forcing the issue to the forefront of public debate.
Another source said the recent events gave renewed life to old jokes and flippant remarks like, "Hello? Does he know this is the Obama presidency not the Biden presidency?"
None of these sources said they believed it would create a lasting rift between the West Wing and the vice president's office because Biden has gone off script before and will do it again.
The president's team said they were aware of the risk when they tapped Biden for the ticket. One source added that the president has a close personal relationship with the former senator and that trumps his advisers' frustrations. But there is a great deal of interest in keeping the vice president "on script."

“BS. This is kabuki. “
No, I disagree. Biden is a walking talking gaffe machine.
Biden went off script and they decided to let Obama ‘come out of the closet’ at this time as his ‘evolution’ was getting untenable. The original game plan was for Obama to stay ambigious and ‘come out’ in the 2nd term, when the backlash wouldnt matter.
Bidens foot-in-mouth disease force Obama to come out of the closet 6 months earlier than planned. He was evolving to cater to his gay donors and patrons but wanted the ambiguity in place to straddle voters.
Question: Did anyone here see the interview with Biden on TV?
I’m wondering what question was asked and by who that even brought up this reply. I’m thinking that the news agency is part of this carefully planned charade.
“This is all an utterly transparent hoax.
Obama needed more gay money and decided to trade socially conservative Democrat votes to get it.”
Possible. Is Obama desperate for more campaign money?
The media is NOT playing it as if “Obama flip-flopped like a typical politician” or “forced to make a position instead of being ambiguous” but are treating at as historic event.
Bizarre! Complete and total gullibility towards the president and whatever narrative helps him.
Time to wave the BULLSH!T flag, Biden did just as he was told.
They knew how the NC vote was going to turn out and they also knew that the Inmate was going to get a significant result in W.Va.
So, they have biden and others start the ‘evolving’ crapola, and wait for the Tuesday results.
As a result the pResident usurps the NC result, Pleases the perverts, sets up the money raking Hollywood event and gets the fact an inmate in Texas was able to get 40% of the vote against him off the front page.
Anyone who thinks otherwise is a brain-dead MORON.
0b0z0 being an 0h0m0 he bent over assfired
OMG I laughed out loud, really!
Nope. This has been a well scripted, well planned and choreographed distraction beginng with Stephanopolis (sp?) contraception question..
Obama aides annoyed with Biden?...
How do you explain Arne Duncan’s pro-gay-marriage comment the same weekend, then? Another coincidentally timed Kinsley gaffe?
I guess I am more cynical about the “everything is a calculation” Obama administration.
As a "flaming" fag, he'll enjoy the fire.
He's a real flame in the ass!
We can see jokes coming about any prez but I never thought I would live to see the day it would be gay jokes...
I guess that’s the gay it goes! LOL
The problem is that jokes are mostly true facts. Helped by the media, the destruction of the country is ongoing quickly.
Some people think that the country is 50% h0m0! That says that the media is letting it happen.
Okay, so toss him back in the closet and throw away the key.
OK, a compromise; a green closet.
All kidding aside, biden knew EXACTLY what he was doing. It was well planned out. Nothing *just happens* where this regime is concerned.
We've been annoyed with Biden for years....welcome to the party, pal.
The reason is that the girlfriend stories didn’t stem the tide about what he really is.
Yep. The rest of 2012 is going to be very interesting. In the Chinese curse variety way.
Thanks for the Ping.
It’s so bad that most of us in our wildest nightmares would never have thought we’d live to see this destruction. At least melancholy makes good jokes!
Democratic RAT sources...Hah, that means they aren't.
