Source: Biden apologized to Obama over his Sunday comments on gay marriage

LOL. You cannot make this stuff up:

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.

“He probably got out a little over his skis, but out of generosity of spirit,” Obama told ABC. “Would I have preferred to have done this in my own way on my own terms without, I think, there being a lot of notice to everybody? Of course. But all’s well that ends well.”

Related to all of this, a Toldjah So moment – brought to you by the mainstream media and their reaction to Obama’s “evolution” on gay marriage. Headlines:

—- NY Times – A Watershed Move, Both Risky and Inevitable

—- LA Times – Obama supports gay marriage, taking a risky stand

—- Denver Post – President Obama’s support of same-sex marriage historic, risky

—- Des Moines Register – Harkin: Obama’s stance on gay marriage “courageous”

—- (Democrat) John Zogby – Obama’s Bold Move Plays to His Strengths

Are these people predictable or what?

BTW, beyond the Biden oopsie, here’s the other real reason our “bold” “risk-taking” President “came out” on the side of gay marriage (officially) yesterday, via The Guardian: Obama campaign hopes marriage equality support a boon for fundraising.

Ah, the courage ….

Disturbing “#BecauseOfHim” campaign slogan paints Obama in messiah-like light


For those who don’t have the stomach to watch it, the Washington Examiner’s Charlie Spiering recaps:

Meet the new Julia. President Obama’s latest ad features “Brian from Ohio” who credits Obama for saving his job in the auto industry.

“I wasn’t sure what I was going to do,” he says, after telling the story about how he got laid off, “I was scared to death.”

As the ad features shots of the gleaming General Motors building, he continues, “Obama stuck his neck out for us, the auto industry. He wasn’t just going to let it die. And I’m driving in this morning because of that. Because of him.”

From the Democrats party’s official Twitter page:

Here we go again (the First Lady kicked it off last month) with painting the POTUS as a God-like figure who is a “savior” to the American people … and in fact “the world”! Been there, saw that, hated it. This is something no campaign should EVER do, and is a feeling no citizen of the United States of America should EVER have about a politician – no matter the party.

Addressing the left’s “because of him” claims, even IF this economy were recovering as well as this administration (falsely) claims it is, it would NOT be “because of him” – it would be because he and his fellow business-stifling Democrats GOT OUT OF THE WAY and turned their backs on back-breaking taxes, regulation, and legislation (like Obama) that has done more harm than good to the private sector, which in turn has kept the unemployment rate hight.

The economy is NOT improving, and that IS “because of him” … and Congressional Democrats who march to the same tax, tax, tax anti-business drumbeat. THAT should be the topic under discussion from now until November … and beyond. Unless you ask the Washington Post, which believes bullying stories from when Mitt Romney was a teenager in the mid 60s are more pressing and relevant.

SIGH! :-w

The Obama campaign destroyed with one graphic

**Posted by Phineas

The Democrats are desperate to have this election focus on anything other than the rotten economy and Barack Obama’s miserable stewardship of it. Hence the flurry of “squirrels” we’re supposed to be distracted by: the fake “war on women;” Romney’s dog; same-sex marriage; and, oh, by the way, did you know Obama killed Osama? The troops are doing it “on my behalf.”

Anyway, the next time some Obamaton tries to convince you the election is about “social issues,” show them this, courtesy of The Pew Trusts (PDF):

Obama's record: people unemployed for more than a year.

That’s the equivalent of a two-by-four to the head of a stubborn mule.

Or an Obama supporter.
