Roosevelt on TV

Another Biden bonehead minute. He was talking to Katie Couric on a train and said that Roosevelt led during the Crash of 1929.
"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."
Really, he said that.

The CBS story, along with the video, is here.

The only problem is that Roosevelt wasn't the president then. Herbert Hoover was. And television was a couple of decades away.

Obama is proud of his choice for VP. I'm amused at his choice. Laughingly.

I heave a large sigh and smack my hand against my forehead. I still like your idea of the presidential lottery....
