Biden: Bush's comments were 'bullshit'

A small part of President Bush's speech the dems are complaining about

Biden: Bush's comments were 'bullshit'


Sen. Joe Biden, piling on to Democratic complaints about President Bush’s speech in Israel today:

“This is bullshit, this is malarkey. This is outrageous, for the president of the United States to go to a foreign country, to sit in the Knesset . . . and make this kind of ridiculous statement.”
Speaking before the Knesset, Bush said that “some people” believe the United States “should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along."
"We have heard this foolish delusion before," Bush said. "As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: 'Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all this might have been avoided.' We have an obligation to call this what it is—the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history."

Democrats have interpreted the comments as an attack on Sen. Barack Obama, and Biden, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said that the president was out of line.

“He is the guy who has weakened us,” he said. “He has increased the number of terrorists in the world. It is his policies that have produced this vulnerability that the U.S. has. It’s his [own] intelligence community [that] has pointed this out, not me.”

Biden noted that Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have both suggested that the United States ought to find a way to talk more with its enemies.

"If he thinks this is appeasement, is he going to come back and fire his own cabinet?” Biden asked. “Is he going to fire Condi Rice?”

In a separate statement, Sen. John Kerry said that Bush "is still playing the disgusting and dangerous political game Karl Rove perfected, which is insulting to every American and disrespectful to our ally Israel. George Bush should be making Israel secure, not slandering Barack Obama from the Knesset."

The White House insists that Bush wasn’t referring specifically to Obama, an argument that Senate Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) called "baloney."
"There is no escaping what the president is doing," said Durbin, who supports Obama. "It is an attack on Sen. Obama’s position that we should not be avoiding even those we disagree with when it comes to negotiations and diplomacy."
Durbin called Bush's remarks "unfair and really unfortunate."

HERE it is........ Remarks by the President Bush to Members of the Knesset

Wild Thing's comment........

First of all Bush did NOTHING wrong, this is all BS from the traitors in our country the LEFT. Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and his apology tours when he was President THEY were the ones that should be punished for their treason.

President Bush hit a nerve with the terrorist lovers in our country. LOL Good one Bush!

Typical treasonous demoncrats. They are a sickening bunch of weasels, cowards and yellow-bellies, hell-bent to destroy what remains of the United States of America.

And I will add this, McCain wanting to be President should be saying stuff like Bush is saying instead of this touchie feeling global warming, let's have a Rodney King why can't we all just get along presidential run. SICKENING!

ok that felt good to get that out. hahaha

What a bunch of jerks! To think that the President is so bold as to do something like this--leveling his grudges against Obama this way.
The President was making a point, Biden. I've heard you do the same thing. So why is it okay for you and not for anyone else? How are you dummycraps so above everyone else that your poo don't stink?
Give me a break. The UN kept us out of WW2 until the Japs bombed Pearl. Then we got real and intouch with what was going on and did something about it.
We let it happen again on 9-11 and everyone was for hunting down and taking care of the terrorists, including dummycraps. Now it's like "Oh we never did this or that." The Hell you didn't! So give the President a break. I wish he had the power to fire senators and congressmen for this kind of behavior. I'd love to see Bush tell people like Biden, Peeloser, Heartless Harry, Scary Kerry and the like that they're "FIRED!!!" with no severance pay. Yeah, cool. I'd like that.

I totally agree. I made a post today you might be interested in. These people are if not snakes, wolves in sheep's clothing. I also sent you an E-mail. Thanks for everything.

Why do people in congress get pensions and benefits for raping the American people? I don't have an answer. The American people at large don't fire them and it is truly sad.

This whining and chronic complaining is the sum and substance of the Democratic Party and Barack Obama's thin-skinned response to any criticism (aka the truth). Instead of change, the new slogan of the Obama campaign is:

Thou Shalt Not Criticize Barack Obama for Ye Shall be Called a Racist.

Biden, isn't that some sort of French crapper? Bidet, b.i.d.e.t. damned frog spelling anyway. Both reflect the same smarmy elitist smile when viewed in the mirror.

"Please, would you tell me," said Alice, a little timidly, ... "why your cat grins like that?"

Sounds like Bush finally hit one out of the park. Too bad he didn't respond to his critics like this 6 years ago.

Biden and his ilk think their critism only goes as far as the Senate floor. Doesn't he know Yobama has been endorsed by Hamas ?

Biden isn't prone to use such big words, maybe now he can learn how to put together sentences too. I guess these democrats wouldn't appreciate the humor of the T-shirt with a picture of Curious George and 'Obama in 08' on it.

Lynn, heh heh he was so good I miss this way that Bush can be. I love it. I wish he could be like this all the time. tah dah!

LOVE your idea Lynn, that would be awesome if Bush did that to Biden and his bunch.

Bob, thanks I will go see your post.

My email is not working as of a couple hours ago. So I am waiting for my Monday morning appt. with the tech guy to fix it. They said they would call me if someone cancels tomorrw. So I can't get or answer emails till Monday...augh! awful! waaaa

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 15, 2008 06:22 PM

Les, your right Obama is way too thin-skinned for politics especially. He is alwayss looking for something to do the poor me thing over just like his wife.

He resents being called a liberal. Resents his middle name being used and now this and other things. Obama has said he wants to talk to these people the terrorists and now he has to pay the price of his stupidity.

That is the perfect seal and logo for them. Thanks Les.

Jack, hahaha how funny. And that is a good oone using Lewis Carroll's novel too.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 15, 2008 06:33 PM

Mark, yes he sure did......right out of the park. It feels like we have waited a long time for him to do this. But it is worth it today that's for sure.

heh heh yes that sure is a big word for Biden.

How funny that is the thing about Curious George and 'Obama in 08'.

Chrissie, I often disagree with our beloved Jorge, but he is spot on, I'm reminded of another American president who stood up for the nation and it's allies. Biden will never rise on any occasion to protect and to serve anyone but himself.
Man in the Arena
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." Theodore Roosevelt "Citizenship in a Republic," Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910

Dear Joe Biden,
You and me in the street, stripped to the waist. Oh yeah, I'm 5' 3" tall and go about 145. Do you have the sand? I win, you pack up and go home. You win, I think not hairball.

I would love to kick smokin joe so hard it would
take 3 proctologist a week to get my foot out of his ass!!I guess we need to cut Biden some slack
after all when he had the hair plugs it turned his
brain to mush...

What Bush said has everything to do with Israel's security. Israel knows what trying to appease terrorists will do to them under an Obama presidency.

You throw a rock into a pack of dogs and the one who yells is the one who got hit. Bush threw a rock today and the one who got hit is yelling.

Posted by: BobF at May 15, 2008 10:51 PM

Jack I love that quote thank you so much. It applies to this so perfectly.

And I agree too, I have said the things I do not like that Bush has done or wants to do. But I too will give him credit always and well deserved when he does things like this. Bush deserves all the credit.

GM CASSEL AMH1(AW) USN RET, heh heh good one my friend!!!

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 15, 2008 11:36 PM

Tincan Sailor, haha I forgot about the hair plugs he had done.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 15, 2008 11:37 PM

BobF, your so right, and they sure roganized fast about this too. The phone lines must have been steaming hot.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 15, 2008 11:42 PM

Glad to see Bush come back to the right side in his speech. The last I heard of the Israeli issue he and Rice were pushing for Palestinian statehood before January.

Biden is a phony, from his hair plugs to his plagerism. He is just one of the many examples of why term limits are needed.

Posted by: TomR at May 16, 2008 12:26 AM

Tom I was so glad about this whole thing ( Bush's speech, strong and right to the point and the left getting so upset by it and Obama really upset by it) haha

Yes I agree I would love term limits so much.
