Biden: Before We Took Office, U.S. Was “The Problem” On Iran
Buzzfeed.com ^ | 5/8/12 | Zeke Miller

Posted on 05/08/2012 11:04:38 AM PDT by ColdOne

Vice President Joe Biden offered a sharp defense of President Barack Obama's friendship to Israel and leadership in preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons in remarks to a Jewish group in Atlanta today.

And Biden blamed the Bush Administration for the foreign policy challenges Obama inherited — specifically the lack of international pressure on Iran.

"When we took office... we were the problem," referring to the way America was viewed in the world at the time. "We were diplomatically isolated in the world, in the region, in Europe.”

Shouting at times, Biden said voices in the Jewish community who say Obama is not fully committed to the preservation of the State of Israel "frustrate" him, declaring: "I believe no president since Harry Truman has done more for Israel’s physical security than Barack Obama."

"I once said were I a Jew I’d be a Zionist, and I want you all to realize you need not be a Jew to be a Zionist," Biden added in the address to the Rabbinical Assembly's annual conference. Adding, he is a Zionist.

One wonders when this guy specifically thinks the U. S. became the problem (not Iran of course) after the Iranian Hostage Crisis.

Carter thought the Shah was the problem. Now this blithering idiot thinks we are the problem.

Well boys, could it be Islamic Fundamentalists are the problem?

Why of course not, our Christian president and his cockroach politician squad all think the Islamic Republic of Iran is just swell. “WE ARE THE PROBLEM.”

Biden, it’s a sad day in the United States when someone as unhinged as you is second to someone who hates this nation like your president does.

I’d like to ask Slow-Joe exactly how ‘Their’ policies differ from those of the Bush Administration in concrete terms (as opposed to rose-colored glass perceptions)?

Joe “is a Zionist”? He thinks that’s somebody who plays the xylophone.

C’mon Joe. Give me something to work with.

It’s becoming harder to tell anyone you are actually a very smart guy.

Your desperation to make the case for a second term ain’t selling.

You inherited 60 years of Iran’s asinine attempts for relevancy and then your boy king wanted to make nice, reach out to and talk things through with the Mullah regime.

The administration approached Iran as boys and were treated as such.

The next administration will approach them from a position of strength and as the dominant power who can make nice or just keep f%*/-ng with until your country men overthrow your oppressive oligarchy and take control of their lives.

Hopefully we will be their biggest cheerleader and friend.

We dam sure won’t give fig about Russia or China and all will be right in the world again.

The Obama Administration and Secretaty of Hate Hillary Clinton supported violent revolt in Egypt and Libya but not Iran.

It's very telling that they supported the Muslim Brotherhood's movement to increase Islamic theocratic rule in the Muddled East.

Obama has been the worst thing to happen to those people since Jimmy Carter, well-known anti-semite.

Slap Slap Slap. Your delusional again Joe, snap out of it! Joe, they are building nuclear bombs with the express purpose of blowing us and Israel off the map; and you think we are the problem. Don't take my word for it, ask shorty and mullahs yourself.

And Joe, Harry Truman didn't fund the nations that wanted to wipe Israel off the map in '48.

Incidentally, May 14 will mark the anniversary of the reborn nation Israel on western calendars. The day Harry Truman recognized them as a nation.

Biden or not, below is a response (in context), that should be, to the Mullahs’ Regime in Iran, their Supporters, and Any (Islamist) Organization. They will fully understand it, IF fully followed by action, by any US administration.

Think Osama bin Laden’s farewell to the world about a year ago.

If Barack Hussein Obama, genuinely, did finally rid the world of OBL, then he should know how to do the rest.

“My response would be “Release him, or we execute every prisoner in Guantanamo, AND kill the next 1000 Jihadis we capture.”
“And, if we find out who you are, we’ll kill you AND every member of your family that we can locate.””

As for inheriting problems, he should note that Obama’s inheritance, politically, goes back to Carter’s administration.

No one expects Obama to clean up the previous mess. But, at minimum, he should not be adding to it, as he had done.

Seriously, democratic practices or not, for the top job, which has responsibilities for not only leading a nation, but, in the case of the US, the world, I would suggest a thorough assessment of candidates before they qualify to run for office.

The cost of, inadvertently, electing an incompetent or even an ‘insane’ President or VP, as far as the US is concerned, is just way too high.

Democracy is an ideal, running a country at all levels, and significantly influencing the international scene are realities.

Look at that disgraceful picture of obama’s butt showing in front of the Saudis and tell me why “polls” say 47% of the US thinks he deserves to be re-relected
