Former Vice President Joe Biden denounced the “demeaning” state of politics in a speech in Philadelphia on Sunday.

Biden spoke before presenting the National Constitution Center’s annual Liberty Medal to former President George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush.

“President Bush was my opposition … he was never my enemy,” Biden said in his remarks. “Think how demeaning our politics has become in terms of how we talk about one another.”

The award is presented to individuals for their commitments to veterans. Other past recipients have included Hillary Clinton, Malala Yousafzai and Nelson Mandela.

Biden, the chairman of the National Constitution Center’s board of trustees, also presented the medal to the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) last year.
