"Part of what a leader does is to instill confidence and demonstrate that he or she knows what they're talking about . . ." Great leadership, Joe! (Via Hot Air, and just in case there are idiot liberals reading this: 1. Franklin Roosevelt wasn't president in 1929; 2. TV wasn't invented until 1939 and didn't become widely available until the late 1940s.)

This morning, "Fox & Friends" did a thing about Joe Biden's gaffe-a-day campaign and showed the "stand up, Chuck" line, but didn't explain it. My wife hadn't heard about that, so I explained to her that Chuck --Missouri State Sen. Chuck Graham -- is in a wheelchair.

"God love ya! What am I talking about?"

  1. Small Correction: the 1939 date is relevant since it was that year that FDR became the first US President to appear on TV when he did so from the NY World's fair. TV was invented well before then...

    "Television in the United States made its formal debut at the World's Fair in New York City on Sunday April 30, 1939 with the first Presidential address on Television by Franklin D. Roosevelt. The signal was sent by the Telemobile (RCA's mobile Television van) to the Empire State transmitter and rebroadcast. The New York Times reported the broadcast was received in strategic locations and the pictures were clear and steady." --
