“I think people are going to take him a lot more seriously than they have in the past… He’s in, and he’s going to be around for a long time,” Quayle told FOX Business Network’s Neil Cavuto.
The former vice president, who was in office under George H.W. Bush during the Gulf War, said he thinks national security will become a more important issue or topic in future presidential debates. He also had on opinion on the current ISIS situation.
“The way you’re going to resolve this is to get the Sunni tribes on your side, he said. “Just having airstrikes… is not going to do it. You’re going to have to go in and they’re going to have to trust you. Therefore, you’re going to have to have Sunni soldiers, Sunni special forces…”
Quayle added, “This president [Obama] is going to be doing very little. He’s not going to change his strategy. He just wants to basically get out of town. It will be a minimal effort on his part and then turn it over to the next president. He is not going to make any kind of changes. This is not part of his game plan. His game plan was to extricate America from wars, and now he has an organization that’s essentially declared war on Western civilization.”
