Joe Biden is such a blowhard.
Even worse, he doesn’t seem to realize that many of his past statements on issues were captured on video.
This week, Biden criticized President Trump for taking out Iranian terror promoter Soleimani.
TRUMP ‘TOSSED STICK OF DYNAMITE INTO TINDERBOX’ WITH DRONE STRIKE, SAYS JOE BIDEN
emocrat 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden believes President Donald Trump has not considered the consequences of the drone strike that killed the head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Quds Force, describing it as a “hugely escalatory move.”
The former vice president said that even though “no American will mourn” the death of General Qassem Soleimani, his killing at Baghdad airport alongside local Iran-backed militias will not, as the Trump administration claims, deter future attacks by Iran. Instead, Biden believes it will “almost certainly have the opposite effect.”
“President Trump just tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox and he owes the American people an explanation of the strategy and plan to keep safe our troops…our people and our interests,” Biden said in a statement tweeted early Friday morning.
Biden had a very different attitude about things like this back in 1996.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
In 1996 Interview, Biden Called Iranian Bombing ‘Act of War,’ Called for Tough Response
As a U.S. senator in 1996, Joe Biden characterized a deadly bombing orchestrated by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps as an “act of war” that gave the United States latitude to respond with any level of force it deemed necessary, a far cry from his current calls for President Donald Trump to explain his decision to kill Qassem Soleimani.
Biden’s view, expressed during an Aug. 4, 1996, interview with ABC News’s Sam Donaldson—before the United States determined that the IRGC was responsible for the Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia—was that, were Iran involved in the attack, it would yield its sovereignty. The attack on the U.S. Marine barracks left 19 dead and hundreds wounded.
“[The United States] could take whatever action it deems appropriate,” Biden said at the time. “They yield their sovereignty if they are [behind the attack] … it’s an act of war.”

Will anyone in the media point out Joe’s change of heart?
Don’t count on it.
