Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) talks to CNN’s Soledad O’Brien and the Starting Point panel about Vice President Joe Biden’s comments on Iran and Iran's 'accellerating efforts' to secure a nuclear weapon.
Barrasso says, “Well, I think that the Vice President ought to stop blaming America, ought to stop apologizing for America, and ought to focus on where the problem lies, which is with Iran…. Joe Biden here seems to be the gift that keeps on giving when you listen to a number of his comments. You know, I served on the foreign relations committee both with the president, as well as with Vice President Biden. I don't know if he has selective amnesia. But in the last two years of the Bush administration, there were five different sanctions against Iran.”
He adds, “This to me is an administration soft on tough dictators and tough on soft dictators. And what see is an administration that stood silent when there were protesters rising up in the streets of Iran this administration - this president's administration.”
Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs weekday mornings from 7-9am ET on CNN.
