(CNN) - The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Joe Biden, D-Delaware, called President Bush’s comments accusing Sen. Barack Obama and other Democrats of wanting to appease terrorists "bulls**t” and said if the president disagrees so strongly with the idea of talking to Iran then he needs to fire his secretaries of State and Defense, both of whom Biden said have pushed to sit down with the Iranians.
“This is bullshit. This is malarkey. This is outrageous. Outrageous for the president of the United States to go to a foreign country, sit in the Knesset…and make this kind of ridiculous statement,” Biden said angrily in a brief interview just off the Senate floor.
“He’s the guy who’s weakened us. He’s the guy that’s increased the number of terrorists in the world. His policies have produced this vulnerability the United States has. His intelligence community pointed that out not me. The NIE has pointed that out and what are you talking about, is he going to fire Condi Rice? Condi Rice has talked about the need to sit down. So his first two appeasers are Rice and Gates. I hope he comes home and does something.”
He quoted Gates saying Wednesday that we “need to figure out a way to develop some leverage and then sit down and talk with them.”
I love you, Mr. Biden. I am pulling for you to get the VP nod! Have been from the beginning but your conviction and outing of this horrific President is just what the country needs.
Go Senator Biden! Tell the world how it is!
Why don't you just tell 'em how you really feel !!!!!!!!
If anyone knows BS, it surely is Joe Biden.
I love it when politicians say what they really think...applause for Joe Biden
Politics is a nasty game isnt it? The prez's comments are over the top. Now Bidens reaction is BS. Its all BS.
I so agree with you Biden...Bush is a moron..
Did Senator Biden sneeze?
Go Biden, go get that liar who got us all in this mess. Don't worry much, Baradk Obama, will get us all out of it with grace and prestige.
This makes my day. Thank you, Joe Biden! I hope lots of his colleagues follow suit. It's long past time for them to start standing up to this disastrous administration.
Joe Biden should have been our next President!
/cheer Sen. Biden
Wow! That is awesome fir power. Biden could have shown it during his campaign. Now he should reserve it until after primary when Obama faces McBush.
That is awesome. Hats off to Sen. Joe Biden for calling Bush out on his "word vomit" as I like to call it.
HAHAHA!!!! Way to go Biden!!!!!!!!!!!!
pacify, conciliate; especially : to buy off (an aggressor) by concessions usually at the sacrifice of principles
I thought Biden might have went to school... Does he know what Appease means?
I thought taking things ouf context was a Republican thing... but I guess this primary has changed all that... from the inside out.
Way to go, Biden! Maybe you should be Barack's VP! I'd vote for that ticket in a heartbeat.
Sen. Biden, I have always admired your courage, your determination, your intelligence.
Today I have something else to admire – your decision to use exactly the appropriate word for President Bush's comments.
No cloaking things in the soft language of diplomacy. Just call it what it is.
My hat is off to you, sir.
I think Mr. Biden responded perfectly.
CNN, please do not sensor Biden's comment. He is saying the truth. It is about time the we say things the way we feel. Bush is a disgrace to the economy and has brought shame to us around the world. We should not pretend about it.
That's right!! You tell 'em Biden!
Thank you Senator Biden. That one blunt word sums up not only the statement to which you were responding, but the entire Bush presidency. Thank God we are about to rid of this bumbling, dangerous oaf.
Thank you Joe Biden for speaking the words that everyone is thinking! If only Pelosi had the guts to do the same!
I agree completely with Mr. Biden.
