(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.”
Aye! Aye! GW doesn't need to fire anyone cause all of them will be out of a job come november. The Smithsonian should preserve GW's brain and allow medical science to see what really makes it tick.
Biden-Reed bath are the same wacko's
Tell it like it is
'bout time someone called the Emperor on his clothes . . . Bush and his cronies are the *problem*, not the *solution*.
I believe that this kind of outburst goes directly against the idea of civilized diplomacy. If we cannot keep politicians in our own country from fighting and making rash decisions, how do you expect us to convice us that we can talk our way through the conflict with Iran. Iran is a country that is leading a covert war against US troops in Iraq. His proxy army is lauching attacks in Lebanon. This war as already started.
Why does Obama think he can talk to them? He said he is a Christian. He must know that Iranian leaders do not share his values. It must be because he is really a muslim. He is at least sympathetic to their views. Remember Rev. Wright believes the US had 9/11 coming to us. I forgot Obama does not have ties to the man who brought him to Christianity. He is not a Christian.
Nice to see a senator willing to speak up against Bush. Way to have some balls.
Take it to the convention Hillary! Obama is unelectable. Day by Day we see his true self....
Get the picture superdelegates. Do what you are supposed to do. Use your intellect (or whatever) to make the right decision and chose Hillary as the nominee.
He said what the American people already knew. lol
I respect his opinion, but he should not be swearing. All it does is cheapen his argument. Gain respect by giving respect, even if it's to a President who is very unpopular and has made many mistakes. However, at some point a reality check is in order, and Bush must come to terms with his choices and be held responsible for the advice of his Republican peers.
Way to go Joe! Democrats need to stand up against this divisive crap. Tell it like it is, not the way it is spun. We americans are tired of being manipulated by this bull***t.
Shoulda been done a long time ago.
Go easy on him Joe. Bush is just off his "meds". He forgot to take his Effexor with him on this trip and he's agitated and irritable.
BUSH IS A TRAITOR AND A WAR CRIMINAL!!!
HE SHOULD BE PROSECUTED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF INTERNATIONAL LAW!
Most appropriate description of America's foreign policy over the last five decades.
It's about time someone said that!!! Go Biden!
Good for you Joe! You tell it like it is. GWB needs some of Tom Ridge's duct tape!
You tell'em Joe! GW Bush is the worst president this country has ever had, in my opinion; and everytime he opens his mouth he proves it!
why do you want moderation on the truth
Biden-Reed bath are the same wacko's
Yay! You tell em!
Keith Olbermann for President!!!
I think Biden should recognize BULL***t - since He Has been slinging it for years
At this point I don't know why anyone would take two seconds to listen to what Pres. Bush has to say. I think he forgets that he's really unpopular and that what he says and what he does only makes democrats look better.Pres. Bush has been full of it since he was sworn into office. Biden knows exactly what he's talking about.
I love Joe Biden...he is never afraid to speak his mind.....I wish he was going to be the nominee..
This is the type of spine and spunk we have been expecting from a so far lame Dem congress. If they showed more of this, funding for the war would end.
Good for you Joe! It's about time someone starts calling the trash talk Bush and the neo-cons love to use exactly what it is!
