Krauthammer: Biden is not a 'serious presidential candidate'

Charles Krauthammer said Monday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that Vice President Joe Biden is a "punch line" and is not a serious contender for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.

Krauthammer's comments came as Biden planned to head to the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire Wednesday to discuss the economy, fueling speculation he is planning a 2016 bid.

However, Krauthammer said Biden's record proves he is not a serious contender.

"Look, one of your commentators said in some quarters Biden is a punch line," Krauthammer said. "In all quarters he's a punch line. He's the genial uncle. He is not a serious presidential candidate."

Krauthammer noted that Biden was the “guy in charge in in Iraq” after the country’s election in 2010. Iraq is now in turmoil due to a growing insurgency by the Islamic State militant group that has engulfed much of the country.

“It was his job, his one job,” Krauthammer said. “He doesn't have a good record.”
