I want you to imagine that Sara Palin had said this. What would the press have said? Yet Biden has gotten an almost free pass on this kind of gaff.
Again, you can make the case we all make mistakes like this, or you can say that Biden is channeling Dan Quayle or the aneurysms may have affected his memory. I think the former, but I think he needs his feet held to the fire.
FDR in 1929?
(For the history challenged, Hoover was President in 1929, and TV wasn't much heard of until 20 years after this.)
