Biden’s Blunders

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — choosetheright @ 3:43 am
  1. The Stock Market crashed in 1929. (Common sense)
  2. FDR was elected President November 1932, to the first of four terms.  (
  3. Television was introduced to the world in 1939 at New York World’s Fair. (

What was that about leaders, Joe?  “Part of what a leader does is to instill confidence, is demonstrate that he or she knows what they’re talking about ”  Love the quote from Stu, “Reason magazine has this very solid comment: “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?'”

All I can say is imagine if this was Bush or Palin, she would be massacred by the media.  I’d love to see Jon Stewart comment on this guy.  He certainly has enough material.  Find more of Biden’s Blunders (like calling his own ad terrible, clean coal issue… and that was just in one day!) here:



  1. I’d sooner vote for a VP candidate who was unclear about events in the 1930s then one who doesn’t even know the accomplishments of her own running mate:

    I especially enjoy the dialogue from 5:24 to the end!!!

  2. If you need more proof that Palin has no idea what she is talking about when it comes to the actual issues that EFFECT our lives and our nation (not just when TV was invented and who was president in 1929 — as relevant to an election as they may be) watch her interview with Charlie Gibson from about 2 weeks ago (hell, watch any interview she’s done, but that one is classic.

    She doesn’t even know what the Bush Doctrine is and after trying to skirt the question, Gibson had to actually define it for her.

    Also gotta love how she just loses the journalists in a “blizzard of words” to avoid answering questions at all costs. Fortunately, Katie Couric and Charlie Gibson aren’t as dumb as she is.

  3. Good thing Biden isn’t running for National US History Professor. Maybe you can find a clip in which he demonstratess he is clueless about an actual issue relevant to the campaign. You are clearly grasping at straws here.

  4. Biden doesn’t seem to be much more clear on ISSUES either. Like the clean coal thing… saying there will be “no clean coal plants in America!” But his campaign is on the record for clean coal. And the Bush Doctrine thing… WHO DOES KNOW WHAT THAT IS! And did you know before having to look it up because it was everywhere in the media because Palin didn’t know. Honestly, I still don’t know what it is. Maybe that discredits me some, but I try to stay well-read and have never of this before this issue came up. And I’m not really trying to make Biden out to be an idiot, we all misspeak… I just thought in the context of this quote, this blunder was just too good not to blog about.

  5. Watch how clear Biden is on the issues in the debate, that is if McCain allows Palin to debate. I fail to see how this “blunder” is at all relevant.

    Also, I am not sure exactly who knows what the Bush Doctrine is, but then again there is only one person running for Vice President here, and I think you can even agree that she should know what it is. It is the basis for his failed foreign policy that a McCain presidency will surely follow.

  6. Lauren, the common citizen might not know what the Bush Doctrine is, but I sure hope the possible future vice president is FAMILIAR with it. Second in command in our country should know something about current affairs. Maybe if Palin had any foreign policy experience or knowledge (sorry, being Russia’s neighbor doesn’t really seem to cut it), she wouldn’t have had to skirt the issues in not one, but two interviews.

    I was unaware of Bush Doctrine but A, I am not running for political office, and B, it came about in the early 2000’s, when I was in high school and really didn’t care about politics to be honest. What’s Palin’s excuse? Too busy carting Track (or Field or whatever the hell her kids names are) to hockey practice?

    The bottom line is, Biden may have misspoken (saying TV instead of radio) and may have his dates mixed with the FDR reference (shame on him for not remembering the exact course of events of something that happened over 70 years ago), but Palin is still severely underqualified to be vice president. She is nothing more than a pretty pawn the Mccain camp is using to get votes. The whole idea is really an insult to women everywhere.
