Did Biden REALLY Change His Tone On Israel?

People are still freaking out over Vice President Joe Biden's appearance on "This Week With George Stephanopolous" Now here is the deal, its one thing to be upset because you don't agree with his position that the US can't dictate to Israel what they should and shouldn't do in pursuit of their own national security interests. I get that. But what you can not do is make it seem as if this is something new or a "change in tone" or a "hardening of the stance" from Joe Biden. It just isn't true.

Let's check out what he had to say last year a couple of months before the election.

September 3, 2008

Joe Biden had a 20-minute conference call with members of the Jewish media today.

Among other things, when asked about a possible Israeli attack against Iran, he said: "This is not a question for us to tell the Israelis what they can and cannot do. ... I have faith in the democracy of Israel."

So can we PLEASE kill this meme now?!?!?!
