Gotta love Joe Biden

Joe doesn't mince words when he is fired up about something, he has this uncanny ability to be brutally honest and direct, but at the same time he seems to intuitively sense the needs of others and convey sincere interest in their welfare. I saw him in person a few times and he relates easily to people, with tremendous charisma and a commanding presence.

Democrat Senator Joe Biden lambasted her for claiming 120,000 Iraqi security forces have been trained to eventually replace American troops serving in Iraq.

Analysts claim the vast majority of there Iraqis are incapable of fighting effectively with desertion and absenteeism rife.

"You all don't do anything except parrot 'We've trained 120,000 forces,"' Biden said. "So I go home and people ask me ... 'Why are we still there? — 120,000 trained Iraqis? — Why are we still there?"'

"For God's sake, don't listen to (Defence Secretary Donald) Rumsfeld. He doesn't know what in the hell he's talking about on this."
