(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.”
And Joe Biden moves firmly into the lead and becomes my new friggin hero. I love him.
AMEN!!! You tell em Biden
Clearly what Biden is trying to say is that Bush is an idiot.
Joe Biden is an idiot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now tha't real talk. Biden just gained my respect. He called Bulls**t for what it was, without sugar coating it. Good Job Senator.
Way to go Sen. Biden!
Go Hon. Senator Biden!! I respect your strong stance against this bull***t and your courage to NOT to mince words in the face of such ridiculous commentary.
Godd for you Biden! Atleast Biden tells it like it is. I always respected him...
Thank you once again for speaking the truth Joe Biden.
Ha ha....I love it!! It's about time someone stop bitting their tongue for the sake of that bumbling idiot. That's who Obama needs as VP!!!
Perhaps Senator Biden has his eye on the Vice Presidency?
Dang, Biden tore Bush a new one! I like Biden or Edwards as Obama's VP.
Biden knows what he is talking about. Counting the days until the Bush Nightmare comes to an end...
joe biden know what is good policy,and what he said is right bush got it wrong.
Love someone up there telling it like it is! Joe Biden can't be fooled by the veiled insidious predjudicial accusations on Obama.
Hopefully the media will air Bidens statement as much as the will surely repeat the trash coming from Bush.
Thank you Sen. Biden for standing up to the rhetorical bulls**t that comes out of Bush and and his surrogates' mouths. He is still trying to invoke fear into the American and Israeli people. Can't wait until the end of 2008.
I love Senator Biden, he always tells it like it is!!!!
I love Sen. Biden's candor. America has had enough of Bush and his neocon nonsense. Outrageous indeed.
Finally somone who is speaking up and will probably be scolded for his tone...but someone has to speak up and stop political games. I am ashamed our President can speak like that. I am royally ticked about our leadership...but highly appreciative of Bidens response.
BIDEN FOR VP
Amen Senator Biden...Thanks for speaking the truth... we are looking for that in our leaders...
Joe Biden is the man ! ! !
I wholeheartedly agree with Joe Biden. Pres. Bush has been feeding us "bull dung" for too long. What started out to be a plus for our country has turned upside down causing chaos not only here but around the world.
Shut-up Biden. Go back to cheating and plagarizing speeches.
GO JOE GO !
100% correct. Joe Biden should be Obama's VP pick !!!
Bush is the worst President this country has ever seen, he has brought us to the brink of collapse !!
You've got to love a senator who follows up "bulls**t" with "malarkey."
Biden's absolutely right. Bush's comments were horrible, and reminiscent of that oaf Romney, when he spouted that nonsense about Democrats before he got out of the presidential race.
