(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.”
Way to go Joe. I just wish more people had spoken up before we went to war, before George W. Bush became the most unpopular president EVER.
William Borah, a Republican senator, made the quote Bush was referring to. Why would Bush dredge this up when many Republicans were openly sympathetic to the Germans including Bush family members prior to WW 2.
I love how the Republicans wonder why their brand is so tarnished. Bush has set the bar for Republicans at an all time low. Is the standard of Republicans the double standard now a days?
Our Republican leaders want to bomb Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, and Afghanistan back to the stone ages just so our tax dollars can rebuild these countries.
We're going after countries that don't have the nukes, but yet we pay NO ATTENTION to North Korea who has them!
Foreign Policy does not mean bomb a country back to the stone ages so our tax dollars can help rebuild them. All at the same time we get to flip the bill on gas utilities, and car gas coming in at $7.00 a gallon in about a year from now.
You guys wanna pay $8.00 a gallon two years from now? I say go for it. Let's vote John McCain "Path to extinction"
Brilliant Joe. Where were these revelations all this time. Indeed bush continuously tries to divide the nation and so are his cohorts in the admin and the right wing talk radios
WE JUST NEED TO IGNORE HIM HE DOES NOT DESERVE US WAISTING OUR TIME TALKING ABOUT HIM
I think when John McCain is sitting in the White House next year, we Democrats are going to be wondering why on earth we didn't support Joe Biden for President!
Give them hell, Biden.
Biden for Secretary of State or Defense.
Biden for President!
Good for Biden. Call it as he sees it.
This is good Biden. Bide speaks the truth and I like it. The way McCain denies to reject Bush`s comments i awful. McCain is McBush. We don`t 4 more years of bad wars, bad economy and many new enemies.
Looks like somebody cannot take the heat... time to get out of the kitchen.
Bush is an IDIOT!!
awesome! don't be fooled by all this Republican propaganda (i.e. the world will be filled with terrorists if we don't get elected). scare tactics are over, fools! we need brains in the white house.
could not have been said better.
Biden would make an awesome VP! Or at the very least Secretary of State.
I love how CNN censors the first time BS is used but not the second.
Four more years with Mcain
This is awesome!
JOE BIDEN FOR V.P. !!!
Tell it like it is Joe!
I love Joe Biden
There's the Pot calling the kettle black....
I agree whole-heartedly with the distinguished Sen. Biden. You give 'em hell Joe.
OH boy! LOL Biden is 100% correct
This was hilarious! Thank God for Joe Biden! Finally some straight talk! I'm still lmao
