One of the big surprises of this political season has been the sideshow entertainment provided by Joe Biden. There is so much material on Biden that I had a hard time deciding which gaffe to focus on. So how about this one:
Vice presidential candidate Joe Biden says today’s leaders should take a lesson from the history books and follow fellow Democrat
“When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened,'” Barack Obama’s running recently told the “CBS Evening News.”
Except, Republican Herbert Hoover was in office when the stock market crashed in October 1929.
Biden would go on to say:
“Part of what being a leader does is to instill confidence, is to demonstrate what he or she knows what they are talking about and to communicating to people … this is how we can fix this,” Biden said.
I feel confident, dont you?
