Biden on Iran: 'We were the problem'

According to Vice President Joe Biden, President Obama deserves all the credit for isolating Iran. President Bush, on the other hand, only isolated America.
“When we took office, let me remind you that there was no international pressure on Iran.” Biden stated adding that negotiations were “stuck in neutral.”
“We were the problem,” Biden insisted. “We were diplomatically isolated in the world, in the region, in Europe.” (Hmm!  Just add this latest condemnation of America to the Apologist-in-Chief's long list of apologies for America to the world. How about, we were and still are at war with Islamic terrorism and war is never diplomatic, especially when our enemies are now Obama's "best" friends. Maybe Obama's friends in Hollywood will make a new movie entitled "Tea at the White House with the Muslim Brotherhood")
Biden made his remarks in a speech to the National Convention of the Rabbinical Assembly in Atlanta, and suggested that under Bush, Iran's influence was "growing in the region."
"American's leadership was in doubt, we were neither fully respected by our friends nor feared by our opponents," Biden added. "Today it is starkly starkly different."  (Note: this is another lie from the Obama administration!  Obama  changed America's friends over to Islam - supporting, praising, welcoming Islamic terrorist groups to the White House, while dismissing and betraying America's allies.  How's that for change Americans?!)
Biden said that under Obama, countries are more willing to work together to step up against Iran. (I can't believe he said this with a straight face - another lie!)
"I would argue that it's not just because of the legitimate threat, but because of the president's efforts, Iran is now isolated and the United States is not isolated." Biden said to heavy applause
