Senator accuses Bush of being 'brain dead'
At a campaign stop in Des Moines, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden had some tough words for the President, along with two GOP presidential candidates. "This guy is brain dead," Biden said of Bush, eliciting a chorus of laughter from his audience. Known for his slips of the tongue, Biden added, "I know I’ll be quoted, I’ll be killed for that.”
Speaking of Bush's decision to commute the sentence of Scooter Libby, Biden stated, “This is a guy who is on the balls of his heels, here’s a guy who is lower off in the polls than any president in modern history and he goes ahead and he does something that just flies in the face of the sensibilities of the American people.”
A White House spokesperson did not immediately return RAW STORY's calls seeking comments Thursday.
The outspoken senator did not stop with the President, singling out Rudy Giuiliani, "I can hardly wait to debate Rudy Giuliani if he is their nominee,” he said. “Because I will eat his lunch."
Not wanting to leave the other GOP front-runner unscathed, Biden said of Mitt Romney, "I found Romney’s statements yesterday profound – crazy — when he talked about going to war with Iran, why are we talking about going to war with Iran?”
