“You go back to the reasons that Joe Biden was put on the ticket in the very first instance. It was supposedly because he had the great experience. He had been there for years. He had been Foreign Relations chair. He had been chairman of the Judiciary and supposedly knew the workings of the Senate. Now, has that worked to the president’s better interest or has it taken away from the president? And the gaffe is not just a question of will Joe Biden make a gaffe and incidentally I like him. Personally, I think he is a fine fellow,” Former Gov. Douglas Wilder (D-VA) said on FOX News.
“But, Is he the person you want in place? You know, you always hear that thing. Suppose something would happen to the president, who would be in charge? The Vice President. Joe Biden? You have got to be kidding today when you say the Taliban’s not our enemy,” Wilder told Neal Cavuto.
“I fought in Korea, front line. I knew who the enemy were. The enemy were the people who were firing at me. And shooting at me. And so for some guy to come back and today, incidentally, to meet with the returning veterans and their families and I don’t believe he would tell them ‘Oh, look, the Taliban is not your enemy.’ Just like they would have told us in Korea, ‘Well, you know, the Chinese are not really your enemy, they’re just helping out the North Koreans.’ Get ahold of yourself, Joe,” he said.
