According to CBS News,
Washington - Vice presidential candidate Joe Biden says today's leaders should take a lesson from the history books and follow fellow Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt's response to a financial crisis.I would have thought the bloggers would be all over this. Have I been reading the wrong blogs?
"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 mate recently told the "CBS Evening News."
Except, Republican Herbert Hoover was in office when the stock market crashed in October 1929. There also was no television at the time; TV wasn't introduced to the public until a decade later, at the 1939 World's Fair.
Lately I've been wondering what happened to Joe Biden. You don't see much about him on television. Now I know why. Maybe he and Sarah should take a very long trip to Afghanistan and let the big boys run for President.
