Vice President Joe Biden issued an apology to President Barack Obama on Wednesday for his shotgun remarks pertaining to the White House administration’s embrace of gay marriage. An anonymous individual who remains anonymous was quoted having said:
“The vice president expressed remorse, regret.”
The anonymous source went onto elaborate as he said that Obama understood that Biden’s comments on Sunday had come “from the heart.” The president and vice president of the United States exchanged words on Wednesday in the Oval Office.
Obama’s response to Biden’s apology was similar to remarks the president made during an interview with Robin Roberts of ABC News. During the interview, Barack conveyed his stance on gay rights as he was quoted by ABC having said:
“He probably got out a little over his skis, but out of generosity of spirit. I Would I have preferred to have done this in my own way on my own terms without, I think, there being a lot of notice to everybody? Of course. But all’s well that ends well.”
Biden indicated to Meet The Press that he is “absolutely comfortable” with the notion of married same-sex couples.
When questioned in regards to the vice president’s apology, Joe’s spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff was quoted by Y! News having said:
“The president has been the leader on this issue from day one and the vice president never intended to distract from that.”
