Biden: Ronald Reagan Couldn’t Win Nomination in Modern ‘Extreme’ GOP

Tuesday in Dubai, Vice President Joe Biden said the Republican party has gotten so “extreme” even former President Ronald Reagan could not win 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

Biden said, “If Ronald Reagan were alive today seeking the nomination, he could no more get the nomination of the Republican party than I could get the nomination. I’m not joking. And so what you see is this movement to the extreme in the Republican party. We had one candidate say I’m going out and waterboarding people and I’m going to do this and I’m going to indiscriminately carpet bomb … Until a group of generals got together and said well that would be, for us to engage in that would be a war crime. They said oh I guess we are not going to make you do that. ”
