You have homework tonight before tomorrow’s show. But I will give you all a head start. For months. first candidate and now President Obama has been warning of a coming economic Armageddon, the worst crisis since the great depression. From just one month ago.
That tone has changed in the last few weeks … at least from the President.
But Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby points out in this column, the Vice Gaffer in Chief still hasn’t changed his tone … whiplash!
Last week the vice president brought up FDR again, asserting that President Obama “has inherited the most difficult first 100 days of any president, I would argue, including Franklin Roosevelt.”
That may have generated quizzical looks, for Biden continued: “Let me explain what I mean by that. It was clear the problem Roosevelt inherited. This is a more complicated economic [problem]. We’ve never, ever been here before – here or in the world. Never, ever been here before.”
Hyperbole? Wouldn’t be the first time for Mr Vice Gaffer. But you be the judge. Jeff joins us tomorrow on the show.
Tonight’s homework … read his column please. But before you go … speaking of FDR, one of my favorite Biden moments.
