It’s no secret that Joe Biden is a very, very stupid man. But in an election year with so much riding for liberals desperate to Barry re-elected, one would think that even Biden would know to be better careful with his words (or preferably just STFU till November). But he’s too stupid a man to do that and hey, if coming out for gay marriage pushes an on-the-fence independent to vote for Mitt Romney come November then so be it:
During an appearance on Meet the Press earlier today, Vice President Joe Biden
argued passionately in favor of full same-sex marriage rights,
indicating a shift in position for the VP. Biden made sure to clarify
that these were his personal views and not necessarily the views of the
Obama administration, but he did talk at some length about how
perceptions of gay people have changed over time thanks to TV shows like
Will & Grace.
Dick Gregory started by noting that Biden has previously gone on record saying he
is not in favor of gay marriage, but he asked the vice president if his
views have evolved since then. Biden spoke from the heart about why he
now believes that gay and lesbian Americans deserve all the same rights
as everyone else.
“As more and more Americans come to understand what this
is all about, it’s a simple proposition. Who do you love? Who do you
love? And will you be loyal to the person you love? And that’s what
people are finding out and it’s what all marriages at their root are
about, whether they’re marriages of lesbians or gay men or
Biden clarified that President Obama sets the White
House’s policy agenda, but he said that he personally believes that gays
and lesbians should be granted “the same exact rights” as everyone
else. He defended Obama’s record on gay rights, including striking down
Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
The vice president also brought up the changing cultural and social
mores surrounding gay people in American society, especially from our
sources of entertainment. Biden name-dropped Will & Grace
as an example of a show that “did more to educate the American public”
about gay people than what most others have been able to do.
