Dispute over whether Biden floated trial balloon on same-sex marriage policy

Washington (CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden gave no indication the White House was planning to change its position on same sex marriage when he was asked about it just weeks ago at an LGBT fundraiser in Los Angeles, two attendees told CNN.

Because it was an off the record event these participants did not want to be named, but told CNN when Biden was asked about gay marriage he talked about his comfort with gay and lesbian couples raising families, adding that the president sets the policy and offered no indication that there would be a shift in policy.

    Of course it was all part of the plan. Many of the rightists want to think and want you to think our President is not an extremely intelligent guy – and he uses that against his enemies and the enemies of America.
    And of course it worked very well.

    This sounds so serious. Are the democrat liberals so doped up the don't realize that the most incompetent, inept, corrupt, union toady president in our history picked the stupidest vice-president he could have to assure his own survival? I guess to many years of that dumbing down the public by the NEA so people will vote for democrat liberals is really having an effect.

    "the most incompetent, inept, corrupt, union toady president in our history"

    You have a macro on your keyboard for that right? No matter what lame name you're using it's the same each time.

    Weird Stuff – Mittens just flip flopped again on gay adoption. Your post shows you rode to school in the little bus.

    You mean the same VP who this article basically admits played the MSM like a fiddle this week...like some public relations Charlie Daniels? Don't talk with your mouth full man...just chew your crow carefully and try not to choke.

    Bet you can't go a whole day without posting the phrase "union toady"...it's like every single post you ever make haha.

    In 2008, the supreme court picked the most stupid individual to ever dwell in the white house.

    Canada agrees with OBAMA on equal rights – Canadians recommend that Romney be tried in court on acts against human kinds
