The kid next door has a splinter in his foot, his brother has a bean in his ear and Joe Biden has his foot in his mouth again.
A Business Insider report at the link below says: WHOOPS: Joe Biden seems to endorse gay marriage, and the Obama campaign is already spinning wildly.
Joe Biden seemed to shift from the Obama administration's position on gay marriage Sunday morning on NBC's "Meet the Press."
President Obama has been ‘walking the fence’ and waffling on this issue.
Obama senior campaign adviser, David Axelrod, tried to quell any firestorm with this subsequent tweet after Biden's "Meet the Press" appearance:
What the Vice President said - that all married couples should have exactly the same legal rightrs - is precisely the president’s position.
But Obama has always stopped short of explicitly endorsing gay marriage -- ever since he backtracked from a 1996 candidate questionnaire in which he answered that he favored legalizing gay marriage.
He has not publicly supported any state bills legalizing gay marriage -- but he has opposed efforts to ban gay marriage.
The Obama administration is in damage control as they try to follow Biden around with a broom and a mop.
