As you probably know by now, President Obama has admitted he supports same sex marriage. Obama's admission came yesterday after his Vice President Joe Biden, spilled the beans over the weekend about where the administration stands on the issue. Now, Obama is trying to claim he was going to "come out in support" of gay marriage eventually before the election anyway, despite Biden upstaging him over the weekend.
President Barack Obama says he'd already decided to come out for gay marriage before Vice President Joe Biden publicly endorsed it.
Obama tells ABC in an interview that he wasn't worried about being upstaged by his vice president on the volatile social issue.
At one point, he says, "Would I have preferred to have done this my own way? .... Sure."
But Obama quickly adds, "All's well that ends well." He tells ABC's Robin Roberts that he "already made a decision to take this position" before Biden made his comments in response to a question asked on a nationally broadcast interview Sunday.
We all knew Obama supported same sex marriage, even before he admitted it, but come on, does he really think we're going to buy Biden's slip over the weekend as having nothing to do with the timing of his announcement?
