(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.”
WoW! Thats all I can say... and I feel you on this. Bush you should be ashamed!
I have always loved Joe Biden!
Lightening & Thunder
Your editors STILL have not removed all instances of the profanity. Are you begging for an FCC fine or what?
Yikes! True, but harsh.
Ha! Finally someone with enough guts to say what they really think!!
Bush speaks the truth. The dems have long wanted to surrender to the terrorists.
There hasnt been an attack in the US under Bush's watch since 9/11. Al Qaeda was a direct result of Clinton's policies and his non intervention when the WTC was attacked in '93 and the USS Cole in 2000.
I'm not a fan of Joe Biden (or Obama), but I'm glad to see him say what we've all wanted to say...that Bush's disinformation tactics are way out of line!
get 'em Biden!!! and I'm GOP!!! now get after the real foes here that make up the bilderbergs and trilateral and the CFR. they are the ones steering this country into this war and this economic downturn. they want to condition us toward one world government.
GOOD FOR YOU>>> BOUT TIME SOMEONE CALLED THE KETTLE BLACK >>> YOU GO JOE
THANK YOU !!!!
Obama 08,,,,,Im about to get my t-shirt made:
'obama is my homeboy!!"
The man speaks the truth.
I bet he call a spade a spade too.
Finally a polictician who speaks his mind. Good on him.
Way to go Joe!!! Tell it like it is !! We have been swallowing too much of Dubaya's BS for way too long. We need more leaders to tell him to "Shut the hell up ! "
Joe Biden For Vice President. He a straight shooter, no bull, extremely smart, and strong on Foreign Policy.
Obama – Biden 08
(note: there are other worthy VP options as well however Biden would be a great pick)
Bush is a wack job!
Why does Obama and the HEAD OF THE DEMOCRATS think that everything that is said is about them. I am a lifelong DEMOCRAT that has had enough with PELOSI, DEAN, and the likes. I have never vote for BUSH but what he said I think was not about the Democrats. Hillary Clinton also said she would not sit down and talk with these people, and I feel the same way. WHY IS IT THAT EVER TIME Obama slips that a top DEMOCRAT runs to his rescue.
HILLARY CLINTON as a INDEPENDENT in the FALL ELECTION.
Amen Sen. Biden, Amen
Does your choice of language befit a senator, Mr Biden?
Right ON Biden...
Now this is how politics should be! Bush's comments weren't "ill advised" or "disheartening". Nobody "misspoke". No, Biden called it like it is – BS. Well done, Senator.
