In an interview with NBC’s David Gregory on Sunday’s Meet The Press, VP Joe Biden told Gregory that he’s comfortable with gay marriage. His exact statement: “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.” In a move that disappointed gay rights supporters and activists, the White House seemingly immediately backed off the VP’s statement, with a tweet from the president’s top political adviser David Axelrod that reads: “What VP said-that all married couples should have exactly the same legal rights-is precisely POTUS’s position." President Obama himself is yet to speak out in full support of same-sex marriage.
