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.

– Follow the Ticker on Twitter: @PoliticalTicker

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. Biden, and Sec. Ed. Arne Duncan, rolled out their “yay gay marriage” last weekend by PRE-ARRANGEMENT.

This fake “darn that Biden” stuff is just part of that arrangement.

When they start telling the truth about the polls, and this racist administration finally starts coming to the realization their own internal polls tell them Obama will have to pay out several trillion dollars to stay in office AND get rid of Biden the Town Idiot from the ticket, you will see Hillary, or Debbie Whatshername Shultz or some other Dem wacko replacing him.

This was a deliberate plan between the WH and Bident. Biden did as he was told so that Nobama could raise more funds from the Hollyweirdos. He’s having a fundraising event at Georgie’s house tonight. He raised $1 million in 90 minutes after he came out.

This is all an utterly transparent hoax.

Obama needed more gay money and decided to trade socially conservative Democrat votes to get it.

Biden’s comment was a choreographed pretense for doing what they intended all along.

We’re winning. They’re losing. Obama is desperate and threw a big gay Hail Mary six months out from Election Day.

Hitlery WILL be on the ticket with Obozo. Mark my words. Biden will claim something . . . time to hang ‘em up . . . health . . . whatever.

And Hitlery will step in to “save the day.” That’s explains why she’s had all that face and hair work done at MAACO. And now she’s showing us her “freckles,” just looking so cute.

And when she does step in, and if the idiot wins, then he’d better get a food taster and double his personal body guards. Vince Foster II.

B.S. From “democratic Sources” tells it all

BO had it set up beforehand and the fall guy named just like he did with the Bin Laden invasion. Probably told Joe — “go for it — trial balloon - you won’t be on the ticket in the fall anyway.”

Perhaps the polling isn’t going that well if they came out with this already.

Totally bogus. This was all planned. Biden was doing exactly what he was told to do. The story was a complete setup as is almost everything that Obama and Company does. It is like TV. There is nothing unplanned on TV.

The response from Ellen. The story about Romney hazing some possibly queer kid decades ago. The wire services story that Obama has now “changed” the planet. Etc, etc.

Nothing more is going on here than Obama taking over the news “cycle” so that nobody talks about the disaster that is Obama & Co.

If anything, Joe simply jumped the gun. Obviously this was all planned well in advance. Obama had to practice for his interview - or did he use a prompter? Internal polling HAD to show the NC vote would turn out as it did and Obama has this Hollywood fundraiser right afterward where Obama would be forced to take a stand. Hmmm, now that it’s laid out like that, Joe didn’t jump the gun at all! He played his role as court jester perfectly and gave Obama the cover that this wasn’t a setup all along.

Why would obama’s communist handlers be upset with Biden. Because it “WAS A MISTAKE HE TOLD THE TRUTH” The Left is acting like this just wonderful what obama did. They are so out of touch. Obama may have gotten a few more ignorant hollywood libs to waste their money on him, at the same time he LOST 10,000,000 VOTES.

0h0m0 comes out of the closet Ping.............

Here is what has happened in the past few weeks:

1- The regime wanted to quash the talk about 0b0z0 being an 0h0m0. They started the ex-girlfriends narrative.

2- No one believed them and the narrative assfired with more disbelief and more 0buzz about the truth being he’s at least bisexual.

3- It was time for the regime’s trial balloons dispenser called Biden. He tried to float that the _resident is “evolving” toward homo marriage. Biden forgot that 0b0z0 was actually “revolving” 360 deg for years. For it before against it after for it! You get the picture.

4- Comes the h0m0sexuals leaning on him (something he enjoys) withholding contributions until he decided to come out of the closet and so, he bent over inspite of his bogus slogan “leaning forward.” It’s his normal comfortable position.

5- The regime realized that 1 through 4 didn’t serve their purposes and gave him the green light to come out of the closet. Since the light was agenda green, he agreed and the rest is history.

Friends, IMO that’s what happened.

“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.

Biden’s 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.

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.

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.

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.

Yep. The rest of 2012 is going to be very interesting. In the Chinese curse variety way.
