Gaff Machine Biden: When the Stock Market Crashed, Roosevelt went on TV to reassure people

Every single day brings multiple Biden gaffs. Imagine Palin or McCain goofing up every day like this. We would never hear the end of it. "When the stock market crashed, Roosevelt went on TV", good lord! Roosevelt was not President in 1929 when the stock market crashed, and of course, there was no such thing as TV. The man is a walking, talking train-wreck. And they have the nerve to talk about Palin's "readiness" or McCain's "age".

The gift that keeps on giving; Joe Biden contradicts his own running mates policy favoring clean coal power plants:


  1. And the Libs think McCains age equates to senility.
    Check your VP Dems.
    Although my theory is Joey B. is trying to screw up as badly as possible so BO can try a different VP,like maybe HRC.

  2. Uh, yeah there was TV in 1929.

  3. In 1884 Paul Gottlieb Nipkow, a 20-year old university student in Germany patented the first electromechanical television system which employed a scanning disk.

    By 1927, Russian inventor Léon Theremin developed a mirror drum-based television system which used interlacing to achieve an image resolution of 100 lines.

    Also in 1927, Herbert E. Ives of Bell Labs transmitted moving images from a 50-aperture disk producing 16 frames per minute over a cable from Washington, DC to New York City, and via radio from Whippany, New Jersey. Ives used viewing screens as large as 24 by 30 inches (60 by 75 centimeter). His subjects included Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover.

    In 1928, Philo Farnsworth made the world's first working television system with electronic scanning of both the pickup and display devices, which he first demonstrated to news media on 1928-09-01, televising a motion picture film.

    The first regularly scheduled television service in the United States began on July 2, 1928. The Federal Radio Commission authorized C.F. Jenkins to broadcast from experimental station W3XK in Wheaton, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C. But for at least the first eighteen months, only silhouette images from motion picture film were broadcast.

    Television did not become a commercially viable technology until the late 1930's. Indeed, the first commercially licensed television stations did not air until 1941 in New York and Pennsylvania, and even then the vast majority of Americans never saw a television broadcast until the early 1950's.

    So for you to say that "Uh, yeah there was TV in 1929" is very "Democrat" of you but it's also a lie. Technically you could say there was television in 1884 and have the same credibility..

  4. He didn't lie. How very Republican of you. However, great points, wonderful research. TV's were not in US homes, the president didn't broadcast anything on TV, and...well...it was indeed Hoover. Have you seen Palin's views on the Bush Doctrine?? How Republican of her. Are these our choices??

  5. I think you are both missing the point. Whether its the Dem's or the Rep's, they both stink. If Joe isn't saying something stupid then Palin is. I think its a good way to keep them from actually talking about something that matters. Not like either of them will follow thru on their promises. Every campaign its the same old blah, blah, blah. Then 4 years later they make the same blah, blah promises. What actually gets done? I think I want to be a weatherman or a politician, you never have to be right, you never are held accountable, and you can make up whatever story you want to spin it to make people that believe in your party believe you were right. What a system. How about we work on some political reform? Oh yeah the maverick says he'll take care of that.
