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.”
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."
Biden said that under Obama, countries are more willing to work together to step up against Iran.
"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.
