Vice President Joe Biden Supports Marriage Equality On Meet The Press!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikInspirationLGBT

This is EXACTLY what we like to hear from the Vice President of the United States of America!

Joe Biden appeared today during an interview on Meet The Press, during which he officially became the highest-ranking official in the Obama administration to publicly express his support of marriage equality in the United States!

Ch-ch-check out a clip (above)!

Although he refrained from outright saying he endorsed it, he did say:

"I am vice president of the United States of America. The president sets the policy. I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties. And quite frankly, I don't see much of a distinction– beyond that."

Of course, his spokesperson later clarified Biden's comments - specifically whether or not he was discussing marriage or civil unions in the following statement:

The vice president was saying what the president has said previously – that committed and loving same-sex couples deserve the same rights and protections enjoyed by all Americans, and that we oppose any effort to rollback those rights. That’s why we stopped defending the constitutionality of section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act in legal challenges and support legislation to repeal it. Beyond that, the Vice President was expressing that he too is evolving on the issue, after meeting so many committed couples and families in this country.

Gah! He was this close!

However, despite the refusal to go all the way with his support, it's very clear how our current administration feels, with the key word being "evolve!"

Step by step, we are getting closer and closer to equal rights!

CHANGE is coming! YAY!

    Please, he will say anything to keep his job. Same with Obama. Problem is, drones like you hear what he says and say "it must be the truth". Remember, this is the same admin that signed NDAA into law

    Good for him

    So, now this fool wants to talk about women's equality and rights?
    Are you kidding me?
    People, do not be distracted by these fools.
    40 million women, half of the population of Egypt, just lost all their freedom under the Moslem Brotherhood thanks to Obummer.
    Arab Spring my ass.
    Hillary and Obummer and Oprah should be tarred and feathered for this travesty.
    About 40 years ago, all the women in Iran lost their freedom under Jimmy Carter because of his actions with the Ayatollah Khomeini, another 40 million.
    Slavery for women is alive and practiced by Moslems.
    Obummer and the Dems are desperate to allow Sharia Law be upheld in the States.
    American women should be very careful who they vote for, 'cuz once you lose your freedom under Islam, you don't get it back.

    I don't mean this has a joke, I really believe Joe Biden is senile
    The man has made so many incredible mistakes and goof ups
    If any Republican had done his stunts, we would never hear the end of it
    He is the perfect example of why we need term limits, and mandatory retirement at 65 of all public officials, another fine example is judge Ruth Bater Ginsberg, who has been known to take a nap, while on the bench

    Look at their track record, the things the Obama Administration has done for gay rights is incredible. Anyone who says otherwise is an idiot.

  6. 6

    Oh please, the man is a whore. He'll say whatever and anything to go along with his boss. I doubt seriously if this man supports gays or gay marriage. It's all for show.

    Who doesn't? With each generation, the misguided and misdirected hatreds of the generation before wane. Haters of the younger generation are not the brightest bunch. they're clinging to something that's fading.

    After reading this, it's great to know that come November he, as long as with the idiot pretending to be president will be unemployed! We need to get someone else to run this country, repeal dadt, and appeal the states that allow gay marriage as unconstitutional! And for once you're right Perez.. Change is coming.. It's coming in the form of repealing all these gay rights. Deal with it! You choose to be gay, you should have to live with the consequences.

    Re: Valentina – No, you're the idiot. Obama and his administration talk a good lay, but that's all they do. If they wanted to, they could be more aggressive on this issue and get much more done. But they do NOT. They TALK. What they're not going to do is alienate the majority of voters who do NOT BELIEVE IN GAY MARRIAGE, and the majority still do NOT want it. So, Valentina, do us all a favor and pull your empty head out of your huge, stinky ass, and try to remember that politicians will say almost anything when they want votes. Once they get elected, they don't keep their promises. Christ you're stupid.

    Good for him. It's unfortunate though that he couldn't just state his support. I have a feeling he's just covering his ass trying to make everyone happy. Making the LGBT community happy by saying he cares and not stirring up too many conservatives againt same sex marriage by flat-out stating his support… when will people grow some balls.

    Re: dryan1971 – Amen!

    Oh PLEASE Joe Biden. Foot insert mouth much? Isn't this the same Joe Biden that said during his presidential debate with Sarah Palin that him AND obama did NOT support gay marriage only that they supported gay's having rights in times of one being in the hospital ect? In face here is a link to that very video and in the end you hear him say just that.
    Please people, the obama administration will say and do anything to stay in office at this point.

    So what? Cheney said the same thing 8 years ago. I don't hear you or any of your gay left pals lauding him. Can you be any more partisan?

  16. 16

    How ironic that he came out in favor of it AFTER former VP Dick Cheney. Joe Who needs to get with the program.

    This is just a distraction so people won't focus on how bad the economy sucks. It's also a floater. Why doesn't Obama come out in support of gay marriage? Because most blacks are opposed to it, and he doesn't want to alienate them. Not that they would support a Republican, but they could choose to stay home on election day.
