(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.”
Very well said, Senator Biden.
You Go Senator Biden! And President Bush should be ashamed of himself. But his approval rating is at 20% and most of those are likely comedians that are going to be sad to see him leave because he provides so much comic material for them.
yes senator Biden is right.
shame on you bush.............
You've gotta love Joe Biden. He speaks his mind and his mind is absolutely correct in this instance. I think he would make a great VP for Obama.
Finally!!!! Someone calls it like it is. I've always liked Biden's straightforwardness. Too bad he didn't have enough money to buy the nomination like remaining candidates.
Bush's half baked, half executed foreign policy has created a greater mess than we could have imagined 8 years ago. I've always opposed the war but I might have more respect if we had gone into our fight against the world with full force. At least it would have been a determined approach instead of this guess and wait game thats only slowly bleeding us dry.
Well, it can only get better next year. Only 249 days of the failure left!!!
Love Biden!!!! He should have been our nominee.
This is outrageous and shameful. How could Sen. Biden use such public remarks about the President? He should resign.
Allright Biden! Saying it like it is!!!!
OBAMA/BIDEN O8' ND 12'!!!!!!!!!!!! President Bush should really just go sit down and shut up!!!!!!! Anything he says at this point sounds like blah, blah, blah. The government in this country needs to get off its high horse and realize we are not alone on this big rock we call earth, and sitting down and having dialogue with...not appeasing..our so called enenemies is the first step in breaking down the misunderstandings and barriers. The United State's John Wayne cowboy attitude is exactly why we have lost our luster and shine on the world stage. We use to command respect, now the world chokes back giggles. Bush has made us a laughing stock, and Annie Oakley won't help the matter with her nuke Iran attitude!!!!!!!!!!!
Good for you Senator Biden. It's about time someone starts calling these people out on their ridiculous form of division. Let's fix healthcare, education and energy policies now. Enough of this BS!
Is stupidity an impeachable offense? Biden is right on with his criticism of Bush.
Nowhere in Bush's speach did he even mention by name BHO or any other oerson for that matter. I believe Biden has guilty feeling. What a bunch of crap.
Well said sen. Biden!
You tell him Sen. Biden!
To give credit where credit is due, someone has kept terrorist from striking the US homeland again. Whether thats to the credit of Bush or his administration. I sure wouldnt say he has created more terrorist as Biden has stated.
Go Senator Biden. Expose the stupidity. 1/20/09 can't come soon enough!
New President! New course!
I agree wholeheartedly with Joe Biden. It IS Bull***t, but then again look who's running the country....the truth is, Bush has no answers for ANY of the mess he's made....
Thank You Mr. Biden!
It is about time someone called it like it really is.
Bush and his cronies have had free range for way to long.
I"m with you on that Biden. However, you can't argue with a fool. We just have to wait until he is out of office and pray he can shut up until them
Woohoo! Give it to em Biden. Finally... someone in Washington stands up to the podium and lets forth the truth.
PREACH IT BIDEN!!! Stand up for what is right!
Go Biden!! Good for him – finally somebody speaks up and says something. Voters are so tired of the politically correct, skirting-the-issue, non-answer answer to everything.
Whether you agree with him or not,you have to give Biden credit for speaking up.
I'd love for Joe Biden to be the Secretary of State in the Obama Administration
thank you, joe biden, for having the guts to say what needed to be said.
i love you!!!
