The Only Thing We Have To Fear Is Joe Himself

The latest Biden gaffe being highlighted today is his chiding of his own campaign for the "McCain doesn't e-mail" ads. But in that same interview with someone named Couric from CBS, Slow Joe says something truly remarkable:

"When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'"

Just when I think Ol' Slow Joe can't top himself he does this! Just for the record, the 1929 crash predated both the FDR presidency and TV as a means for a US President to address the nation. Yes, it's a Two For Tuesday gaffe from Slow Joe, The Gaffe-o-matic, Biden.

Ben Smith has the details.
