(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.”
That's right Sen Biden, now go impeach the sob
To use such words it sounds like Biden is on the defensive.
I believe if US spent all the money that was spent in the MIddle East we could defend our Country for 200 years – it's stupid.
We don't need any other Country for anything except to feed the belly of the Corporations.
Way to go Joe Biden !! You are awesome.
Biden is a strong leader to stand up to Prez Bush. At least someone loves this country enought to speak out and save us from more wars before Bush leaves office.
Joe Biden is exactly right. Does Bush have no shame. What Bush said was yet amother pathetic example of the Republican party's attempts to stay in power forever through creating irrational fear in the minds of the voting public. However, nothing that comes out of the mouth of our idiot president surprises me anymore.
Joe Biden is the man.
Absolutely! Joe Biden is the MAN!
Good for Biden! Finally someone not afraid to tell Bush that he is full of it and a lying bastard on top of it!
Joe Biden for Vice President.
Viva Biden! Finally somebody said it.
Here is a demonstration in his own words of why Joe Biden is so dis-trusted even by his own party. Is this his way of 'appeasing' who? The media? The democrats? The president? The Iranians?
Sen Biden is (as always) awesome. Thank you Joe.
BRAVO for SENATOR BIDEN! I have always appreciated your honesty. Now, I appreciate you more than ever. America needs more Patriots like you. BRAVO, BRAVO, BRAVO!
Finally! It's about time that someone of Biden's stature and position challenge Bush's rhetoric. Bush has done so much damage to this country... it is going to take years if not decades to undo, not to say anything about the financial debt we have incurred....Biden' words are true and refreshing!
You GO, Biden!!!!!
Kudos to Senator Biden for calling President Bush's remarks exactly what they are!
The last eight years have been BS....I appreciate Senator Biden's candor!
why couldn't this guy have been the Dems choice for Prez? Biden & Hagel would have been a great ticket.
Biden for VP! Lol
I appreciate your honesty and frankness, sir...
Way to go, Biden.
However, I'm sure Bush's remaining uninformed supporters will be quite pleased with his statement and find nothing disingenuous or contradicting about it.
I knew I liked Joe Biden for a reason. Give 'em hell Joe.
I'm glad to see Senator Biden call bush out on this one.
Thank you Senator Biden!
I would hope someone could get to Mr. Bush and explain to him that he is an enormous liability to all Republicans up for election in November... Like Mr. Olbermann suggested last night, W it's time to shut the hell up.
Bravo! At last someone tells it like it really is. Biden for Secretary of State!
Biden is exactly right. Bush's policies and attitudes have made the US vulnerable and a target for the terrorists. Bush is everything that the terrorists hate. I'm so glad his term is about over!
