Biden: We're Going to Shove Bush Veto Down His Throat

White House hopeful Sen. Joseph Biden recently told a supporter that after President Bush vetoes the Iraq war funding legislation, "we're going to shove it down his throat."

Shaking hands with supporters at Rep. James Clyburn's annual fish fry on Friday, Biden, D-Del., responded to a guest's question about what Democrats will do after Bush vetoes the bill.

"When he vetoes the bill, what’s going to be the next version of the bill that you will send him?" the man asks.

Biden responds: "The idea that we're not building new Humvees with the V-shaped things is just crap. Kids are dying that don't have to die. Second thing is, we're going to shove it down his throat."

Clyburn, D-S.C., hosts a fish fry each year to thank supporters, calling it an opportunity to thank the people who help get out the vote.

"Many of them cannot afford a $500 hundred plate of cold chicken. but they can enjoy some hot fish and a little cold beer, none of which they have to pay for," Clyburn said at the event, which this year was attended by six of the eight 2008 Democratic presidential candidates.
