"When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'" - Joe Biden

I'm sure that during his studies at the University of Delaware in Newark where he had a double major in history and political science receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree Biden would have studied the years 1929 through 1939 a little more closely.

He obviously didn't learn that Herbert Hoover was president, and not Franklin D. Roosevelt, in October 1929 when the stock market crashed. Maybe Biden was studying more about his five draft deferments.

He also obviously didn't learn that 30 April 1939 marked the first television appearance by a President at the World Fair in New York. Maybe Biden was studying more about how to plagiarize another law review article.
