When he’s not being slapped down by Barack Obama for his flip-flop on the AIG bailout, serial plagiarist Joe Biden continues to amaze us with his verbal miscues, as reported by Ben Smith:
Biden garbles Depression history
Joe Biden’s denunciation of his own campaign’s ad to Katie Couric got so much attention last night that another odd note in the interview slipped by.
He was speaking about the role of the White House in a financial crisis.
“When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed,” Biden told Couric. “He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.'”
As Reason’s Jesse Walker footnotes it: “And if you owned an experimental TV set in 1929, you would have seen him. And you would have said to yourself, ‘Who is that guy? What happened to President Hoover?'”
Biden and Bill Clinton seem uncommitted to an Obama presidency. Based on the recent interviews (Clinton on “The View” and on FoxNews) he seems to be endorsing McCain for President.
Republicans will not be taken seriously until we accept both the pros and cons of capitalism. We can’t run to socialism for solutions when times get tough or lessons will not be learned; especially those lessons that come from the roots greed and dishonesty.
Wow Len, thanks for the insight! That was beautifully written and highly insightful. Speaking of Katie Couric, did you see Sarah Palin with her? She was amazing! I can’t imagine her displaying a so-grotesque-it-was-borderline-offensive level of ignorance or saying something silly like that flip-flopping Joe Biden!
Thanks again Len!
