(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.”
Couldn't have said it better myself.
You go Joe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
WAY TO GO JOE...
Is this the new kind of politics?
Bush is a bad president but if Obama become president , he will be the worst one. Vote for Hillay or Mcain is the best future for all American.
The remain popular is the spread fear.
America has had enough of Bush Republican Mcain fear.
I agree with Senator Biden.
It is BS. spreading bs.
HELL YEAH BIDEN!! GET MAD!
It's about time the democrats fought back. This kind of talk has been coming from the right side of the aisle for too long. Bush has made this country militarily and financially vulnerable and he goes and blames it on the democrats.
Give em Hell Joe!!
There you go Biden!!! Yea! Way to speak the truth.
Biden for VP! We need a dem who's not afraid to counterpunch
I LOVE IT!!! WHY ARE WE TRYING TO ALIENATE OURSELVES FROM THE WORLD!! IS IT BETTER TO HOLD GRUDGES OR SETTLE DISPUTES? YOU LEARN FROM YOUR PARENTS NOT YOUR NEIGHBORS AND AMERICA IS TEACHING US HOW TO BE PITY AND IGNORANT, THESE TEACHINGS ARE COMING FROM UNCLE SAM NOT MEXICO OR CANADA!!!!
I have rarely (if ever) approved of anything President Bush has said or done, however, I whoelheartedly agree with his comments this time.
We must not appease or pander to terrorists or terrorist nations or elect Presidents who want to.
It has never worked and never will.
We must not become a socialist country, we must remain free.
JOE BIDEN IS THE ONE WHO SHOULD HAVE STAYED IN THE RACE AND FOUGHT HARD HARD HARD TO BE PRESIDENT
I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY HE WASN'T SUPPORTED BY WHOEVER THE INSIDERS ARE THAT PROVIDE MONEY AT THE BEGINNING, THEREBY TRULY DETERMINING WHO WE EVEN GET TO CHOOSE FROM! HE IS IS THE MOST HONEST, EXPERIENCED, TRIED-AND-TRUE, TELL-IT-LIKE-IT-IS, PRACTICAL YET CREATIVE OF THEM ALL. OBAMA IS A NEWBIE; H. CLINTON MUST FIGHT ON TO TAKE A WOMAN AS FAR AS POSSIBLE (KUDOS TO YOU HILLARY) BUT JOE BIDEN SHOULD BE THE NOMINEE.
Said it again, Biden! That is who Bush and McSame is. It is time for someone to tell it like it is. Go, Biden! I want you to be Secretary of State for Obama.
Good for you Biden. No one has stood up to this nicompoop for 8 years. It is time to stand up and say enough is enough.
Bush should have been impeached after he lied to the American people about the WMD's in Iraq. Democrats in congress are just as guilty as he is. For 5 years, they signed off on his budget requests for this stupid war. They only have their own gutless selves to blame.
Supporting Bush in his outragous approach to 9/11 leaves blood of 4000+ Amricans on the hands of the administartion and the congress who blindly followed Bush like a beat up poppy.
CNN: Please publish this. Thanks.
Take a look at your record....
Glad to see someone calling it like it is.
Go Joe! Way to tell it like it is!
AMEN – Bush is CRAZY
Thank God Someone has finally put this Backwards President in his Place. And I for one was never for the Iraq War Bush has brought more emenies and hatred toward the United States than any other President in History.
Obama 08 -Baby-
Biden certainly should know BS when he says it. He's had a lot of practice distributing it.
Joe Biden for Sec. of State.
After Obama wins, he needs to have a nice spot in his Cabinet. Real/straight talk and experience.
