Karl Rove told reporters that Joe Biden was a "big blowhard dufus" on Monday.
Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden proved he can walk away to fight another day.
Talking with reporters aboard his campaign plane Monday evening, Biden was told that Republican strategist Karl Rove, while at the GOP convention
earlier in the day, publicly characterized him as a “big, blowhard dufus.”
Biden reacted with visible surprise. The Delaware senator, well known for relishing a good bare-knuckled political brawl, smiled and called Rove “a
great American.” Then he turned and walked away.
Asked to elaborate, Rove said that Biden is being portrayed as this big foreign policy expert, but added, "I don't see it", reminding the reporters
that Biden voted for the Iraq war.
