Obama and Biden's "Slips"
This is what makes them a perfect "duo"... they both have tongue misadventures. Just a few weeks ago, Obama had a slip of the tongue and exposed his real spiritual beliefs. This week, it was Biden's turn. Well, you might say that it's not like we are not used to his attitude of not doing a good job in keeping his foot out of his mouth but this time it's about history. He was off by 4 years and 1 president when he said this, "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.'" Why was this wrong? Well, according to my husband, who has maybe memorized every detail of the American history (he is that into it!), FDR wasn't the president that time but Herbert Hoover. He wasn't the president until 4 years later. Also, television wasn't used in 1929! Not until 10 years later. Hello! As I've said before and I'll say again, let these two guys talk all they want and expose their true colors!
