    I was stationed in Tidewater when Wilder was governor. I've always liked the man even though he is a leftie. I watched his interviews on two different networks and I am sure there are others who did not appreciate Biden's comments. Wilder had the balls to come out and say so.

    I was too Senior.
    And I liked Wilder as well. I met him at the Naval Station once when he came aboard in the 80s.
    Back in those days, honest, hard-working politicians (Wilder, Reagan) were respected and appreciated, regardless of political affiliation.
    Not any more.
    Obama has divided the nation.

    This Administration is a disgrace to the ideals which made America the hope of the world.
