Gates’ Biden criticism should not be lost in North Korean taunt

May 22, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement blasting North Korea for injecting itself into the 2020 election:

“When the Korean Central News Agency, the state run media fronting for the ‘Little Rocket Man’ who is the dictator of North Korea attacks former Vice President Joe Biden they have gone too far. The danger of North Korea’s anti-Biden taunts on his intellect is that some will use it to take Biden’s disqualifying record of plagiarism and incompetence off the table, for example.

“It is important that former Bush and Obama Defense Secretary Bob Gates’ statement earlier this month that Biden has been, ‘been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades’ not be confused with the North Korean missive.  After all, smart people are wrong all the time in politics, so Biden’s Joe DiMaggio-like streak of being wrong should not be dismissed as being because he is dumb, after all it was John F. Kennedy’s ‘best and the brightest’ who got us into Vietnam.

“America should reject North Korea’s attempt to influence our elections, and instead make their own decisions about whether the former Vice President’s record of plagiarism and his consistently being wrong on foreign policy makes him unsuitable to hold the office of the President.”
