Biden on Bin Laden: “I don’t know what Governor Romney would have done”

Vice President Joe Biden doubled down on his comments that Mitt Romney may not have ordered the the assassination of Osama Bin Laden Sunday on Meet The Press.

Biden continued to gloat about Obama’s part in the death of Osama bin Laden and alleged that the nation wouldn’t be as safe under a Romney presidency as it is under President Obama.

I am absolutely guaranteed America’s position in the world in national security is stronger with President Obama having taken over,” Biden said.

Biden defended the critisims many have expressed towards President Obama’s surprise trip to Kabul on the anniversary of Bin Laden’s death and hinted that Romney wouldn’t have made the right call if he had been President.

“I don’t know what Governor Romney would have done with the same information, but I know he wouldn’t have gotten the same information. He said he would not turn heaven and earth to get him.”

Biden criticized Mitt Romney’s foreign policy positions, saying “Based on what Romney has said as it relates to his view, I’m saying the arch enemy is Russia, he called it the Soviets, it’s Russia. If thats what his prism through which he view our national security interests, I would say it would not be as strong.”

On Fox News Sunday Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who tops the list of VP candidates for the GOP this year, shot back at the Vice President’s statements.

Although he said the thinks Biden is a very nice person, Rubio said, the Vice President has a tendency to over-politicize issues.

“The issue of bin Laden, it was a proud day for all Americans. The armed forces did a fine job and the president has had credit and rightfully so for making that decision,” Rubio said. “He has taken something that should unite the American people and instead turned it in a weapon of political warfare, I think it is wrong for the president and vice-president to use the issue for politics.”
