Biden garbles Depression history

Joe Biden's denunciation of his own campaign's ad to Katie Couric got so much attention last night that another odd note in the interview slipped by.

He was speaking about the role of the White House in a financial crisis.

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

I heard a blurb in passing about Biden releasing his tax records and how little he gives to charity. I'm not sure of the amounts but it was very, very little.

Anyone have any information?

Well, running for President and all, he felt like he needed to dress up the numbers a bit - goosed that charitable giving all the way to 0.3% of income!

Way, way south.
I wonder how much Ron gave last year in charitable contributions, or if he donated his earned income credit back to the government to help us all out?

Where I'm from, "Chuy" is slang for dealer.

I guess the BO camp just isn't CC'ing Biden on the Campaign memos anymore.

Here is another from this walking Gaffe Machine!

Pulling people out of the ditc...
why should he give? BO is touting neighborliness, maybe he doesn't have any neighbors, or they have more than him already...
