(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.”
EXACTLY! Biden has redeemed himself! I'm loving the Dems who are telling it like it is this year! This is really our time to take back America from the liars and the cheaters who've held it hostage.
Hey, I was really looking forward to reading the comments about this! And there aren't any. It was the 'bullsh**' thing, wasn't it? :)
What's up, CNN?
I didn't vote for the arrogant, cocky dismissive Bush- either time.
I won't be voting for the cocky, jeering, mocking Obama, either.
Biden is sour grapes and a has been. He is a self centered self serving Rube. His foul language is a reflection of himself.
Finally. ... Somebody has made it plain and clear. ... George Bush is an idoit !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Its official, President Bush is out of touch with his own cabinet secretaries. He only has a couple of months left and a new President will have the opportunity to fix the screwup from the 43rd President of the United States of America
How can you not love this guy!!!
Please post my comment from earlier, about how Joe is RIGHT about what he said. Thank you.
How many attack dogs does Obama have? These people are going for Obama because they want his supporters. If Obama loses the General Election, nobody will be on Obama's side anymore. Lets do it Kentucky!!! Hillary '08!!!!!!!!
Absolutely!! Bush's grasp on reality and his own culpability is pathetic.
My sentiments exactly Senator Biden!
THANK YOU BIDEN. THANK YOU.
I love Biden. He's got a pair and he's not afraid to say so.
Biden is too late.
The DNC and the left wingers damaged their best candidate.
It is too late to rally around the Obama now.
Write in Hillary Clinton
Joe Biden for Vice President !!!!!!!!!!!!
bush sould be ashamed of himself
why does he need to be the protector of israel?
shame on you bush
you have single-handedly made the world a very unsafe place
i love Biden. i hope he enforces like this through the election.
Now THAT'S straight talk.
Bravo, Senator. We need more straight talk in DC. We are all adults.
Tell us about Prescott Bush, Dubya.
Hey folks. This guy Bush has been brain dead since he was hatched. What comes out of his mouth is gastric gas fermented by Karl Rove. I am a Clinton primary voter who will vote for Obama in Nov because he will be the Dem candidate. Let Bush have it Barak.
I guess Biden doesn't like straight talk...oh, wait, he never has. I don't know how plagiarizer and known liar gets away with making comments such as this. Bush is spot on with his comments and history reminds us that this is absolutely true. Anyone who sees Iran as innocent is absolutely delusional and incapable of decision making.
hmmm and some people actually thought Bush was right. Well there you have it a President that doesn't want to listen to his own staff or those who know better out of stubborness. Sounds like another situation I read about, somthing about a gas tax i believe( they're experts for a reason).
Any 1 but McCain
